      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 .

debatable i'm sure but i'd say no less than .025 dia... wire is so stress sensitive that even if the twist holds it will be weakened at the stress points. IMHO. on the other hand if it's not torsion straightened (Roller or annealed)you may be able to go down to .020 mabe even a little lower, but i've not done that ever so i'm just going on instinct. you going to troll with it or what?

The 124lb was mostly an example, I plan on getting some standard issue 174 but also want to experiment with some lighter stuff. I've used 88lb for direct jig tying and always use a haywire but am trying to figure out when I can safely go to easier and neater barrel wraps.

bet those great lakes guys would know better whistle

looked at my wire and it's tooth proof .026 at 140 lb. test. i've used it this small but never smaller because i feel if i need smaller i can use fluoro or something else. 174 is what .030 give or take? i've never had an issue with it at .026 using a barrel wrap. i'm not a real big wire guy or anything so anyone who knows for sure... i'd love to hear it too!! wink
