      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 .

Alpine Soft Loc Quiver??

Recommended Posts

I just bought one of these quivers, the 5 arrow holder. I like it so far, it quieted my bow down, the old Bohning quiver was too noisy. My question is with arrows with broadheads. The part of the quiver that covers up the broadhead came with two rubber inserts, one thick and one thin. I could use the thick one and use an old broadhead to 'slice' grooves for the broadheads into the insert or I could use the thin one and the broadheads would just be covered with the quiver. What do you think? I never have been a fan of repeatly sticking the broadheads into the quiver inserts, possibly dulling the broadhead. The arrows would still be held in two spots on the quiver, and the broadheads would be covered with the enclosed part of the quiver. If you have an Alpine quiver, how did you do it?

I also just bought the softloc-5. I took out the thick liner to see how it would hold my rage 2blade and although it holds fine I find that with the thick insert out of the hood that I bang the broadheads on the plastic pulling it out. Not a big deal unless you're hoping for a follow up shot.

I cut grooves for the broadheads and use both pieces of foam as recommended on the box.

I have the same quiver and took out the thick foam, there is no need for it as the quiver holds the arrows in 2 places, and the plactic covers the broadheads. I will not put my broadheads into foam, but that is just me.

Thats exactly what I was thinking, without the thick foam the arrow would still be held in two places and the broadhead would be protected by the plastic, and you wouldn't be dulling the broadheads by repeatedly sticking it into the foam. When its dark out, and you're putting your arrow away, you're not alwasy going to hit the spot you've grooved out.

I don't know why you wouldn't hit the spot you've grooved out. The places to hold the arrows hold that arrow tight which means thay fit exactly the same spot. They only thing you might do is not line the blades up the same way every time.

The reason they give you both is the thin one is for expandables and the thick is for fixed blade. If you push expandables into the foam some will open. Mathews also has two but the one for expandables has round holes cut into the thick foam.

I Googled the Alpine Archery HSOforum. They still make them and it looks like they have improved them to boot.

Mine is just a bow mount with a screw through the center.

The improved screw on type is compact and they also have a model to attach to your treestand.

The big C-store is a dealer, but you might find a closer one if you click on "find a dealer" on the HSOforum.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
