      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 .

Fireline Crystal

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if its any good? I was at Cabel's in Rogers this past weekend and i bought a shimano sahara and had them put crystal on it but i havent got out to try it yet. I really like the smoky color Fireline but supposedly its not just the color thats different?

I started using it this year and I have it on 4 reels. Other than the color, I haven't really noticed a difference between the Crystal and the Smoke that I have been using. I haven't had any issues with it.

Works great. Tie directly to the jig if jigging and tie on a snap for cranks. Slip bobbering a nice 1 to 2 foot leader of fluoro and lindy rigging use a fluoro leader.

Works great for me too. I spooled two reels last year with the Crystal and dind't notice any difference from the Smoke that I had used the 2 years prior. I only had a couple of break-offs and I would guess just about all of the lines would have broken off in those situations.

i googled it and saw quite a few people on forums that hated it, but quite a few who love it. So it apparently isn't JUST you moviking! smile I suppose it's like anything else- some people hate it, others love it. I guess some things are just junk and all people hate them but i think Crystal is just about personal preferance.

I used ice fishing this year and it worked great. Although I tryed it on opener and they wouldnt take my jig untill I switched to mono. now im not sure what to think of it.

Like every tool, if you don't know how to utilize it, it is junk.

I can name other lines far worse in performance than Crystal, but it goes right back to the statement above.
