      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 .

Stabilizers?

Recommended Posts

What comes most highly recommended? Got my new Matthews DXT last week, and didnt get a chance to try anything while i was there so no purchase was made, heading to archery country and cabelas tomorrow though, so im just lookin for input. Seems like theres alot of hype, and its hard to tell whats best for a semi-new bowhunter.

I just bought a Limbsaver S-coil and it does a nice job of reducing vibration, but is a little light for my taste. For $20 I can't complain too much though. Limbsaver also makes a nicer one for like $60, and Bowtech makes a nice one for $50. How much do you want to spend?

Ya i dont know for sure.. im having a hard time deciding how important it is? I dont mind spending alot if it makes a difference. I guess i dont know if a longer one makes a noticable difference from a shorter one or? I wonder if they would let me try a bunch at archery country and see what works best?

I only use a stabalizer to hold my bow straight up and down with a very loose grip. Most bows are a bit top heavy, added weight to the bottom balances the bow in your hand. (if that makes sense) Most new bows today are quiet and very vibration free, so getting one for those reasons don't hold water anymore IMO.

I disagree that most bows today don't need the added dampening. I was fortunate enough to buy a new bow this year so I shot most of the new models and even the smoothest handling bows still had some shock. I think thats where a cheap S-coil can do the job. I had the s-coil on my old bow and it was plenty for the shock.

I do completely agree with having a longer and heavier stabilizer out front to help be more steady. I've tried a few and really found it to be true.

I like the Vibracheck and the new Octane from Bowtech.
