      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.

    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.  
    • Texas style.  Salt and black pepper.   Put it in the smoker.  wrap it.    
    • @Big Dave2 Yeah, I have a couple acres in the woods with deeded water front access.  Had it for about 10 years now.  This camper has been stationary on it for about 6 of those years.
    • It can be but not without a quite a bit of work and seasoning which adds to the cost. I don't see too many people cooking brisket , pulled pork etc without adding a whole bunch of stuff to make it taste decent. 
    • If you want a steak then you are probably right but sometimes a good brisket sandwich is even better!
