      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 .

What brand and style of fletchings do you shoot and why?

Recommended Posts

I personally have shot the quickspins and did not like them for the money they get for em and I also have shot duravanes which were pretty good, except for addhesion problems and last year I bought a single fletcher and started fletching my own arrows and I used bohning killer vanes and I have yet to rip one off thus faror have one start peeling on me. So just curious to see what everyone likes to use and why?

I have used the traditional 3 Inch vanes..but I am looking to make a switch to something else, for the most part I have a couple buddies that love their quickspins. But they are not experts and I would like a few more opinions.

I like blazers for the price and mostly the durability. but didn't fly good with fixed broadhead throw wisker bisket, now I have a ripcord. I started using a few of those quick flech nap twister, no problems with them

I use 4" feathers. I've tried just about type of flethcing at one time or another, and nothing stabilizes a fixed blade broadhead like feathers. They are also light, cheap, and adhere easily.

Blazers, blazers, and blazers. Oh did I mention blazers? I think I made my point.

Seriosly, they are way better than quick spins, durable and the price point on them is justifiable.

thats my .02

I use blazers with a whisker biscuit and I haven't had any problems yet. I was planning on getting regular vanes originally, but the guy at the archery shop gave me the blazers and they seem to work pretty good for me.

I am using 4 inch feathers this year again. I go back and forth from vanes to feathers. Kinda wierd maybe but feathers just seem make it more real to me for hunting. And I like the forgiveness factor. Beman arrow with a 100 grain Magnus Stinger 4 blade. A new head for me this year.

I don't think you can beat the blazers for the price or performance! Not only are the the best vanes on the market IMHO but very affordable.

I have used the quick spins for the past two seasons and have been very happy with the arrow flight and accuracy. I use the Ripcord for a arrow rest. I know a few who have used the blazers and have also been happy with their performance.
