      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 .

Demo Lazer Mags a good deal?

Recommended Posts

I am looking into buying a gas auger.
I have been to a couple of shops recently that have "demo" lazer mag (not designated either express or ultra) 2hp (8in) augers.
These have 2 cutting blades and don't have the center bit. I think I can still get a 1 year warranty on it.
Is $225.00 - $250.00 a good deal?
I was hoping to find some going on clearance for $200 or less, but I'm not sure that will happen.
Thanks
Nels

If you can get the one year warranty I'd say go for it. I worked for a Gander Mountain for a couple of years and I don't think anything ever happened to any of our demos. What is there to go wrong, they're just sitting there? If there is something wrong with it they wouldn't be selling it.

I have the Lazer 8" and it's a great auger, never had any problems and those two blades cut fast! Sounds like a heck of a deal for $250.

Nels,

I got a good idea for ya. If you ever happen to be up in big lake, stop in at strikemaster and ask them what they got for demo augers. The only thing they use them for is demonstration at shows and tournaments. They usually knock off 100 bucks. I'm friends with the daughter of the owner of strikemaster. They may have just what you're looking for.
Keep the lines wet, Matt

Hold out for an auger with the center bit. The teeth closest to the center of the auger on my Strikemaster XL-3000 3 hp always got dull, but when I switched to the new shaft with the center bit two years ago, it was like heaven. I haven't needed to sharpen anything since, and that was a few hundred holes ago. And the center bits are cheap and easy to replace/sharpen if they dull.
