      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hustler Props

Recommended Posts

I have tried two Hustler props on my four stroke Yamaha , Both caused the motor to vibrate and squeel at around 1500 RPM.

The first prop caused a extremely loud noise like a loose fan belt when backing off the throttle from cruising speed to neutral.

I like the design and thought behind them but I did give up and install the OEM prop.

Has anyone had any luck with these props ?

I work for a boat dealer and we have sold almost 200 of the Hustler's and have had very little problems. Have had 3 fail. The perfomance on most boats is great, especially compared to Yamaha's aluminum props. We have not ran into any noise issues except with 1 of the stainless props and that is fairly common with most stainless props. Be sure you have the correct hub kit and it is installed per the instructions.

My boat is brand new and the dealer installed the prop . I did install a second Hustler prop following by the instructions that came with the hub kit.
I do not think it is a installation problem because the dealer should know how to install the Hustler Props they have done so many.

After installing the second prop I informed the dealer that the vibration was still there. There reply was:
"we have sold hundreds of these props and had no problems". This statement from the dealer may be true but does NOTHING to solve the vibration and squeeling problem my motor has with a Hustler prop installed.

The dealer and I decided to try a Yamaha prop which worked fine.

The Hustler prop is alot more expensive than the OEM prop and as you say should perform better. I paid for the Hustler prop and to trade even up for a less expensive lower quality prop makes little sense.

That is why I am trying to find out if these props are worth a $hit.

I would consider trying a third Hustler prop.
But I am not willing to have a prop on my boat that vibrates and squeels like loose fan belt every time I back off on the throttle .
