      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 .

Left handed retrieve Low Profile Baitcaster?

Recommended Posts

Is there such a thing? I know Abu makes a Standard Baitcaster in a lefty but no low profile. Do I have to go with a standard? Anyone got one in nice shape they want to sell? Thanks.

I use a pinnacle tetra metal series low profile lefty, like it alot but spendy.. It replaced a quantum low profile lefty, cant remember the model on that one but it was ok too, drag was a bit touchy.. I know phleuger has a new lefty out also... Not alot of choices for folks sitting in the back of the boat, still waiting patiently for a lefty line counter..............Paul

I did a survey on spinning and bait-casting reels a long time ago on FM and it was a fifty fifty split. Wish the companies that make high end reels would get a clue!

I know Daiwa makes left handed reels in their high end low profiles. You could probably find one on hsolist. Most other companies make them as well, I would check company websites to see what they have available.

I've always used a lefty set-up, spinning or casting.

Shimano has a good selection of lefty models in baitcasting. Shimano's left handed models have a model number ending in "01" For example the Corsair 400 is right hand and the Corsair 401 is the lefty

I have one that works great. I think that it is called a Bantum Curado (sp). They are out there, you may have to ordere from a catalog and that way you can specify.

Look under "Lefties" in the Reed's Sporting goods HSOforum; they have most of the Abu Garcia, and Shimano models listed there
