      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 .

Daiwa ss1300 bail replacment

The bail on my Daiwa ss1300 broke this past weekend and I'd like to get a replacement from a local shop instead of waiting for one to be sent. I've called Joe's and Shoreline Tackle but they don't carry parts. Anyone know of a place that would? (Tackleplus <- I can't find a number or address to call!)

The easiest way to find parts for a reel is to look on the company's HSOforum. You can print a schematic for your reel model , locate the coresponding part, and order it online for just a couple of bucks in most cases. It's worked great for me!

I have to say that Angler's Paradise was the place to go. They had a bail for the ss1300 and I was fishing that afternoon with my nephew. Wouldn't have been the case if I hadn't fixed the reel...

Good info on Daiwa's site as well. The exploded views of the reels are great if you're wondering just what the heck you should call that thing-a-ma-jigger that you just snapped in half...

Thanks for the pointers.

I just want to put in a plug for Diawa and say that I've had great success working with them directly, even with old parts. If you cannot find parts locally, you can get them directly from Diawa.
