      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 .

backing on record

Recommended Posts

Do I need to put monno backing on the Abu Record?I figure the holes in the spool will prevent line slipping.There isn't a ton of line capacity.I don't want to waste my space with mono.

been fishing now a few weeks with a record and no mono backing, have had no issues whatsoever

Must say I am pleasantly surprised with this reel so far, had to buy it in a bind and it has been impressive thus far

You never mentioned which Record you were asking about so with this in mind, Im going to assume that you're talking about R50, R60, or R60HC

Why bother filling up the whole spool on the reel when you'll probably be using less than 100 yards of the line while fishing...

Basically, you could split a spool of 300yd Superbraid between three Abu Garcia 6500s or two Abu Garcia 7000iC3's providing you put a mono backer...

But then again, using mono as backer/filler depends on individuals' taste...

I always put a little mono on the records. The non High capasity records have very little line capacity but it never hurts to put on a few cranks of mono. If I remember right, the capasity is 60yds of 100 lb, 80 yds of 80 lb and 90-100 of 65Lb Power pro.

You'll love the reel
