      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.

    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!  
    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
