      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 .

Eskimo Quickflip pole snaps

Recommended Posts

Anybody else have problems with the snaps that hold the poles extended? I bought a Quickflip II, and everytime I set it up (including the very first time), one or two of them break. Last time out I brought one to fix the last break, and an extra, well two more broke. Eskimo has been very good about sending me more- twice, but it seems I am going to have to have a pocketful of these everytime I go out. I am not slamming poles together either, they break right when I start to extend. I now listen for the tell tale "ping" as I gently slide the poles! Frustrating!! Anybody have a fix for this? Any ideas?

I have the QF 3. When I put it together two broke or were broke. Arnison sent some more out and had them in 2 days. I have not broke any since. I dont know if it makes a difference which way they go in meaning loop facing out or in. I guess I would call Arnisons and see what they recommend. maybe they will build a little better clip. Good luck....

I also called and they we real good about it. Sent me some out right away at no cost. They realize there is a problem and wil do whatever it takes to fix it. They told me that they will replace these as needed and send you the better ones as soon as they get them in. Cant beat that type of service!

I also had wonderful service from them on this issue. I called because one was broken off when I put it together. They sent me 4 of them so that I had spares.

Does anyone have an opinion on which way the clips should go in? I just emailed Ardisam to ask their advice. I'll port the reply when I get it.

I had the problem when I first assembled my QF II. The service was great and they sent me out a 5 pack of them right away. I have not had the problem since. I do have the extra's just in case. They do recommend putting car wax on the poles to make them slide easier but I have not done this yet. Anyway a minor problem and quick fix a all around good shack.

Has anybody had trouble with the windows ripping? Noticed one of the side windows had a 3" cut in it the 2nd time it was put up. I'm thinking they may have had this problem in the past due to the fact they are just velcroed in.

    • Wrong. I like other people's Templeton just fine.   It is their advertising I objected to.   After all, their booze came from the former Seagrams distillary of industrial scale in Indiana, as did a number of products that advertised and labeled in a manner that would lead one to think they were a "craft" type product.     Clever marketing and not much else.    Read the bottle carefully.   See where it was distilled, not just where it was bottled.    But if you want to pay inflated prices for industrial products, go ahead.   Personally, Evan Williams is acceptable to me and is sold at a reasonable price.   If you want fancy hooch, make sure you are actually getting fancy hooch.  
    • I cant see them either but I am imagining its a pretty cool looking gun
    • Am I the only one who can't see the pictures?
    • This ^^^^^^^^^^  
    • If you want it for lights look into a photocel timer.  Mine turn on at sundown for 2,4, or 8 hours.
    • Take it to that pawn shop in Las Vegas. They will bring in an expert to tell you it's history,give you a low ball offer once they find out and then you can just walk. 
    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though.
