      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 .

Fixed blade broadheads

Recommended Posts

Another question for all you guys that do shoot fixed blades, whats everyone had the best luck with? I shot muzzy 3 blade 100 gr last year, and when i switched to them from field points, i was a foot to the left and low. im thinkin i wanna go with a shorter profile broadhead and am thinkin about either Slick Trick or G5 Strikers. Has anyone shot the slick tricks?

Slick Tricks are nice all steel tough 4 blade heads, but you still need to have your arrows and bows tuned to get "field point flight".

You were a foot to the left and low at what range? At any range that is way off and something is messed up.

I used the Easton tuning guide and moved my rest to get everything working.

Slick tricks have great reputation but I haven't personally used them. I've been using G5 Montecs since I've started bow hunting. They work great for me. Some claim that they are not very sharp but I've passed threw all three deer I've shot with them; although I haven't shot a deer past 25 yards. Also I can say that I don't need to adjust anything before 35 yards in comparison to my field tips. I set at 15, 25, and 35. At 35 I hit "about" an inch and a half lower than the field tips. It all depends on your set up. We're all different. I'm happy with Montecs and don't see a reason to change.

I shoot 100 grain Muzzy Mx-3's and they are an inch high at 30 yards. Right on at 20 yards & 40 yards. Don't know the dynamics of why this is but they work for me. One comment on Muzzy MX-4's. They seemed to "sail" on me. I couldn't get consistent groups. I am thinking its tied to the baldes being on the same plane but I am not sure.

I've used the G5 strikers and the Stingers 4 blade from Magnus. Both have done great. I had problems with the Stingers until I got my bow back in tune. Now all my broadheads fly great.
