      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 .

rage heads

Recommended Posts

The company is doing everything in house this year so I don't think you'll see any more problems with the three blade. Last year they farmed the job out to someone else. This is according to our Rage rep. There also shouldn't be a shortage of 2 blades this year so should be no problems getting these broadheads.

I've used the 3 blade with no problems except fumbling with getting another band over the system. But for the ease of things I now us the two blade and like the 2" cutting diameter. One tip to consider is always keep an eye on those rubber bands and keep them moist or they will dry up and then the blades deploy.

i used some no name brand that i got for a few dollar it was 3 blade. First ever shot at a deer 40 yards perfect hit made a hole bigger than a shotgun slug. one of the blades did break. I guess my point is practice with your brand and make a good shot.

i want to try these rage broadheads myself but dont see the need to spend 40 bucks when i can spend 5 with the same outcome?

It seemed to me the shortage was always with the 3-blade...am I wrong? I've been using the 3's with no problems. Superior flight, too. How do the 2's fly in comparison?

I believe it was the two blade that was hard to get. The three blade was the one that had some issues.

Rage is a very good head. Right now they have a marketing plan that has just about taken over the expandable broadhead market. There are alot of expandables on the market that are just as good. Wasp, Grim Reaper, and Snyper to name a few.

Try them out and see how they fly. That's all you can do.

I'm sticking with fixed blade broadheads.

Expandables sometimes get used as a crutch in my opinion. You hear many guys say they can't get fixed blade heads to fly well for them so they use expandables. A properly tuned bow will shoot pretty much any head to the same point of impact as field points. There are always exceptions though.

Fixed vs. mechanicals what's better? Ford vs. Chevy Marcum vs. Vexilar. It's all personal preference.

Well I bought into the marketing ploy and picked up some Rage 3 blades today. I have heard nothing but good from people using them so that means something. We'll see..

I didn't mean the marketing was a bad thing. There is just so much hype. It's a good broadhead and they market the [PoorWordUsage] out of it. That's what I meant.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
