      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 .

Can't get my G5's to fly worth schmidt? Whats going on?

Recommended Posts

Ok first off I have always shot Rocket mechanicals and this year I thought I would try fixed blades just to take that chance of deflection completely out of the question (I feel you owe it to the animal you are shooting at) and I am trying the G5's by Montec and I can't get them to fly consistently.

I shot 4 rounds of 3 arrows at 20 yds and two were just about touching each other and the third arrow would shoot high and left consistently, but then I put the head on a different arrow and then it would go consistently right and low.

I'm guessing I probably have to tune my broadheads or bow, But I know my bow is laser tuned perfect and shoots my mechanicals just fine. I'm thinking probably that I have to paper tune the bow which is alot of messing around this close to the season, and then this winter when I go to shoot league I will have to resight my bow all in again.

So at this point I'm leaning towards shooting my Rockets again this year , But would prefer not too. Is there an easy fix for this? IF so what is it?

What kind of arrow?.. it could be your insert is not in straight, and its causing your broadhead to hydroplane. Mark your arrows, if its just one arrow always missing.. then dont use that arrow for hunting.

From the sounds of it, you have 2 arrows that are perfect.. you should be able to get other to hit there as well... make sure you dont have clearance issues.

Like Deitz suggested clearance is the biggest suspect. If you are not using a drop away this could be your problem. Even if you are using a drop away, make sure your knock is turned so your fletch can't contact your cables.

Frustrating I know. Good luck.

Make sure you let us know what you find.

Two different misses with two different arrows. Put that broadhead on all your arrows and shoot them to see if there is a consistent miss. This will tell you wether you have one bad arrow or if it's something else. Could very well be your grip also.

I wouldn't say that paper tuning is tough or too much work. In fact I think you owe it to yourself and the animals you hunt to make sure your bow is in the best condition possible.

Paper tuning and making the adjustments is very easy an can be done in an hour. There are no major changes unless you're moving your nock point which is pretty easy because you can clamp on brass nocks for temporary locations and then tie in the permanent one when you're all tuned.

Any quality proshop can get you in and taken care of, but you may have to wait since its so late in the prep period.

I wouldn't blame the broadheads, except unless the one head is to blame. If the same head causes inconsistencies no matter what arrow its on I would guess the ferrule or threading is bent slightly from being dropped or something. Shooting mechanicals well is deceiving cause it can hide tuning or form issues that would show up with a different head or shots at longer distances.

    • Idk if I would use the winch rope, once that gets full of salt/chloride and sand I think it will get rotten.  I've been using winch rope on atv's since it first came out so I am fairly familiar and have broken a few of them.  I want to say I've seen a house with wide straps like seat belt material but I don't remember where.  The stainless steel cables are the best option besides going full hydraulic.  If I decide to build another one it will be hydraulic.
    • I'm not sure how good your buddies and family are at darts once they have a few pops?  But you may want to move the dart board to save your flat screen!  Just say'en!.
    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
