      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 .

Prop Match

Recommended Posts

After breaking in a 150 Optimax this weekend, the RPM's seem a little low even when trimmed up and pushing a rooster tail. The RPM's are running at 5000 with a Hustler prop on it from the dealer. Does anyone know the exact specs it should be running at WOT?

It is an aluminum prop. I will see if I can get some more info. The top end with 2 in it the other night, calm lake, full tank of gas (33 gallons) 3 batteries, no other fishing gear, was 46-47 on GPS.

Your RPMs are too low and you really shouldn't have an aluminum prop on that motor. Is that really how it was sold to you? I would complain to your dealer, it doesn't seem like a good setup at all. I'm surprised it was even sold with an aluminum prop.

Given what they did with the prop, I would check to make sure they have your motor mounted at the right height (ie. high enough) --- raising the motor up (if it is too low) will give you more rpms.

I think props like a 19 pitch or 21 pitch Tempest Plus are good candidates, same goes for a 19 pitch Rev 4 or maybe a 17 pitch if you're not getting enough rpms. If you really want holeshot and stern lift even a 19 or 21 pitch HighFive is an option, although probably not needed for your boat. Someone at your dealer or a prop shop should be able to make other recommendations too. Good luck getting it figured out.
