      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 .

most of the companies have a HSOforum that you can check on. also you should have gotten a booklet with your reels that you can call and order spare parts ( including spools) i have two or three spools for each of my spinning reels. very handy! del

I don't know where you are located but if you are in Northern Mn you can call Don Wendt with Rapids Tackle. He is located in Cohasset, near Grand Rapids, and use to carry a large supply of reel parts. He had a decent assortment of extra spools the last time I checked. His number is 218-246-8814.

Thanks for the help guys,...I ordered 2 spools for seperate reels today.

One for a 10 year old Shimano FX200, $10 including shipping, and it is in stock!

The second for a 5 year old Abu Garcia Cardinal, $14.99 with shipping, also in stock!

I just called up the technical support numbers off the websites and the first person that answered was able to help! I was really impressed with both operations!
