      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 .

lighted nocks

Recommended Posts

Just curious what everyone has tried as far as lighted nocks. I used lumenocks the past couple of years and wasn't really happy with them. Shot way low(weight), they didn't seem to last long, and they didn't seem real bright. Tonight I tried out an easton tracer nock and I was very impressed! The magnet activation was easy enough and the nock had no effect on my arrows point of impact. It also starts to blink after about ten seconds when shot. This should help in finding your arrow after the shot. Only thing left to ponder is the longevity of the battery.

I also have been thinking of switching to the Easton Tracer Nocks for this season, I am just not impressed with the performance of the Lumenoks i used last year. Did the Easton's light up every time? I have heard reports that on some shots they wont light up.

The Tracer nocks are the best, i have used the lumanock for a season and i last year went out and bought 6 tracer nocks. Have not had one go bad or one ever not work. They say they last 90hrs. That is plenty long. By the time you use them for 90hrs they will have something out that is 10 times better. They are the best on the market now. Stop thinking about it, just go get them, i love them.

I wouldn't think of going bowhunting without a lighted nock on my arrow. Have shot 2 deer with lumenocks and they seemed to work good, but I will be looking into the Tracer.

I have used Lumenocks for the past 3 years and have been nothing but happy with them.

I have never once had an issue with them not lighting up. One just needs to make sure you have them set right and they preform flawlessly.

The lighted nock really intrigued me. What I don't like is the price tage at $10 a nock. I did a little research online and found a video on youtube that had a step by step process for making your own. I now make mine at about $4.25 each and it only takes 5 minutes. Check it out! I think I enjoy watching the arrows fly even more than the lumenocks because I built these. I am not sure who came up with the idea, but they work great.
