      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 .

New Iron Question

Recommended Posts

I am looking at getting a new set of irons. I'm currently in college but am picking up golf and decided i want to invest some more in the sport. Does anyone have any suggestions- what store I should go to? what brands i should look at?

I don't typically spend much on myself, being in college and all... but want to get a great value as these will be with me for a looong time. Thanks!

You will probably here this alot when it comes to buying golf equipment. hsolist is the way to shop when it comes to golf clubs. I bought my irons, woods, driver, wedges and putter seperately on hsolist. If I would have bought them at golfsmith or the golf warehouse it would have cost me over $1700. I spent less than half that for top notch clubs.

Go to Golfsmith. the one off 62 in Edina has a great used rack. That way you get to hit them first and pay no shipping. I am a low handicapper who only plays used equipment. I got Hogan apex plus irons there for $160. for people just picking up golf, it is a myth that expensive equipment will help your game. Perhaps really junky clubs would hurt, but expensive gear helps little. Hitting thousands of balls and hours of short game practice is what helps.

Sorry for being preachy.

Good golf equipment doesn't have to be expensive. Hitting 1000s of ball with with cheap clubs that aren't designed for beginners won't help much either. I spent alot of time hitting hand me down cheap clubs and the only thing it helped was that I learned to scramble and play my weaknesses. It's hard to learn on old forged clubs when you have a slice swing and no coach. wink Buy some nice(not necessarily expensive) cavity back irons and work on your game and you can get to be a good local player. I used old forged clubs and short cavity back irons for 15 years until I ordered some custom clubs built for me. It didn't take long and I was down to a 2.3 handicap. The old clubs taught me how to scramble and the new clubs helped me learn how to play.

Buy a decent putter and practice your short game. It will save you more strokes than any set of irons

I agree, but you still need to keep it in the fairway. Army golf can do just as much damage as a [PoorWordUsage] short game. Most cavity back clubs are stupid easy to hit. See if you can find yourself a good used set of Taylor Made rac os2.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.

    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
