      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 .

mathews outback case

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I just got my first bow last week, grin.gif a used mathews outback for $600 dollars with all the bells and whistles, I went with a buddy of mine who is getting me into the sport and didn't have the intention of getting such a nice bow, but the other bows we were looking at were in the $400-500 range so it just made sense to pay the extra money...(By the way, Schaffer's in burnsville really were great wink.gif)...But I am looking into getting a hard case for it, right now I have a soft one and I really want to take care of it. But I have learned that with the parallel limbs my bow won't fit in most cases...Anyone out there with the outback who could point me in the direction of a case that the bow fits in? Thanks!

I cant think of a brand off the top of my head.. However, more because I don't own one of the parrellel limb bows.. There has to be a hard case for it, there are too many of those bows on the market. I would do a google search and type in Mathews hard case. OR just bring your bow into a store and try them out. Which I would think would be the best idea!

Thanks for the help huys, ghotierman, do you know if the Doskosport Deluxe will fit it, or will my outback only fit in the pro 44? The Deluxe is 49 1/4 x 17 1/8 x 5 1/4, while the pro44 is 44 1/2 x 20 x 8 3/4...Thanks again for the responses!

I'm guessing it'll fit in either one...the pro is a bit deeper. both of these cases are great for storing your archery accessories as well.

good luck

I've got an outback and I fit it perfectly into a bow hardcase made by plano. You can pick em' up for like $29 or $39.99 at your local Gander's or what have you.

Don't seem to have a problem fittin' it in there. SNug as a bug in a rug....that sucker isn't going anywhere.

I have also been looking for a hard sided case for but for my Bowtech Extreme,which is somewhat similar to the Outback. I recall that I found a place on the internet that makes a hard side case specifically for the Outback. Its spendy though ($200.00) but isn't your typical hardsided case. It appers to be very durable and holds your bow with the quiver and stabelizer attached. I am at work right now and don't have the info. with me. I will try and post it later tonight. This place is located in Hudson Wisc. but you have to order over the net. Jim

WGator: Sorry for not reponding earlier, having problems with my home computer. The case is made by SKB and fits Mathews Legacy and Bow Tech Patriot style bows. It is a molded hard side that has a "pallet style" slide out. It is difficult to describe, but looks very sturdy. I found it at the following HSOforum:

" www(dot)exploreproducts(dot)com/archerycasesbr5500(dot)htm " Hope this helps. Jim

Capt, I respectfully disagree, you are protecting something quite valuable. My hunting rig for instace if you add everything up has to run somewhere around $1,500 with arrows, releases, sight ect... $200 on a good case to protect that I dont think is too much. I had a cheep case on my target bow for a while and it ended up scratching my limbs... sure its only cosmetic. but?

I hear ya Dietz, good point. I guess after I add everything up on my bow too I'm looking at $1000-1200. The case is minimal for what I paid all together on the bow.

Glad I found a deal with my plano bow holder which does a great job. I haven't found any scratches, etc.....but then again I don't look for them either.

Just an update too, I got a great deal on a used hard SKB double bow case, and it fits my outback perfectly! Though, this is the long kind, not the compact one. Thanks again for all the help boys!

This is THE reason to spend the money for a good case. Imagine driving 19 hours to hunt elk in New Mexico. Three guys, 1 truck and a whole lot of stuff piled in the back. Me and 1 buddy have SKB hard cases for our bows. Third guy has a plano hard case, which I used for many years myself, until I bought my first new bow in 13 years, which is a Bowtech Patriot. Unfortunately, bad things happen sometimes, and this was no exception. When we got to Chama and unloaded everything, there seemed to have been a little shifting happening, and the center of the Plano case was mashed. Along with his sight and a few alum. arrows(another reason to shoot carbons). Fortunately, #1 buddy brought a back-up bow in his SKB. And with a little tweaking, #3 buddy was able to shoot it. So, short story just a little longer. When you have $1500 tied up in your bow, an extra $80 can make pretty darn good sense....Or, make sure someone packs up the truck a little better than we did.
