      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 .

Which Collar?

Recommended Posts

In need of a new e-collar before chasing pheasants in a couple weeks. Looking at either Dogtra 280NCP Platinum or TriTronics Sport Basic 3. I like the fact that reciever/transmitter on the Dogtra are both rechargable and it shows charge level, but I have had good luck with TriTronics in the past. Any opinions/history???

Thanks!

I got the TT G3 Sport Basic back in early May when I got my dog. I HAVE NOT had to charge it yet, made it through all of the summer training a 10 hrs/wk and all of early goose, and it's still flashing green (it should last a while even after it starts flashing yellow). I even left it on overnight on accident about a week ago. I also researched a lot and heard nothing but good about TT.

I've used the Dogtra series for a number of years and have had nothing but good luck.

Fairly fool proof & simple to run. A great collar at a good price,wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

Dogtra all the way. I have the 2000 T&B going on 3 years now. It gets used almost every day.

I picked up the same collar about a month ago, and am more than happy so far!

I have the tri-tronic SPORT UPLAND G3. Have used it for 1 ½ year and have still not changed the battery on the remote so I don’t think a rechargeable remote will save you much money.

One of the features I really like is turning the beeper on/off with the remote. I find it a bit annoying to listen to the beeper all the time and this makes it possible to turn it on just when you need it to locate the dog. Thee beeper uses a 9v battery, and I actually changed the battery for the first time this weekend.

I use the 2502 T&B and love it. Afriend of mine switched to the Dogtra 2502 T&B from TT and doesn't regret it at all.

I have a G2 sport model and a G3 sport combo. Only compaint that I have is the intensity "roller" dial doesn't have a firm enough "click" between numbers. It tends at times to get moved around with walking through tall thick cover that rubs on the transmitter. A buddy has the same one however and his seems better.

Thanks for all the replies everyone I appreciate the input. I had pretty much made up my mind to go with a Dogtra and after reading the above I won't have any reservations making that purchase.

If you are looking for a great deal. Don't know if I can name the store here but it is the large sporting good catalog/retail store on West 94. Check out the bargin cave in back. Factory refurbished tritronics at big discount, + all dog products in there had an additional 20% off on Wed this week. Unfortunately I had just ordered a new one last week.

    •   It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?  
    • Couple things to keep in mind. Various wheels will require varying torque settings and it should be ON the wheel, or in the owners manual. If you are in a shop make a point of TELLING them what torque settings you want used on your tires/wheels. And of course big difference if you have steel or cast aluminum wheels.  Years back, believe it or no, some Dodge trucks would tighten turning LEFT and then on the other side they would tighten turning RIGHT!  You need not ask me how I know this but it all took place in the middle of the Yukon Territory.
    • That's what I had to do to get the tire off.  Not the type of thing you're likely to have handy when you get a flat away from home.
    • A trick my grandfather taught me was using a long tube. Usually a 2-4ft long peice of pipe. He never had an impact so this was as close as having one. Take a big socket wrench then slide the wrench in the pipe and the pipe acts as leverage and I have a peice of pipe hanging in my garage right now just for this reason and I have NEVER not been able to break something free with this method. A little tip I wanted to share.
    • those things are poorly equipped to deal with a MN winter.   
    • I have them periodically.   They look like the world's biggest rat.    And they poop all over my low platform feeder.   
    • Long standing problem.   I recall breaking a 3/4 craftsman socket trying to get a tire off a 68 vw in the 70's.   I don't know if retorqueing them upon returning from the tire shop is good enough or not.  
    • Thanks guys, it would all be during day light and only a couple miles the rest in the ditch. Good idea wanderer on the reflectors. No damage would be done so I think it would be alright.
    • If the sled is not doing any damage to the groomed trail (which I can't imagine it would) and if you are towing it in a safe matter, I doubt that anybody would even care.
