      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 .

GLoomis 915C-HB 7'7" MH

Recommended Posts

Quick advice needed. I found a few of these rods at about 40%-50% off. Are they that much better than my Compre's? I would be tossing bucktails w/ these. Just looking for input from experienced users. I have not forked up to rods that expensive yet so don't have much experience with them. I do know the Glooms have good warranty and a hefty price tag. Second I'm thinking of paring luna's with them...advice would help me break the barrier of taking out the pocket book.

I love my Loomis rod, light strong and honestly in reality not that expensive. I have the 7'10 Loomis and throw everything up to mag dawgs on it. I paid $238 shipped for mine last Dec so if you can get them at near half I'd buy 2.

As for the Lunas we have 2 in the boat new in May both broke down already, both been repaired 1 didnt last 2 outings after getting repaired the other we'll see since he just got it back. I would buy a Shimano Calcutta 400B befor a Luna. We have 4 of the 400 B's and other than drags backing off no other issues.

Thanks for the reply. I've kinda heard mostly good about the luna's but still hard to pull the trig on one when I hear the calcutta's best you can get. I have the wife picking up 2 poles for me on her way home. Fleet has them on clearance btw. Basically half off the 915 and 914 series, not the cx though. I think I saw a few 7.10's too. Not sure I can post that but always willing to help out another fishing buddy. I'll probably have to look into the CTE since I need a lefty. Only reason I'm looking is because 4 of my abu's all broke on me, 2 this past weekend. Plus I found some deals on rods clearance rods for about 40 bucks more than my compre's.
