      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 .

I have been very impressed so far. I have yet to put an arrow through a deer, but I hope to change that soon. I got black ones first, and re-ordered lime green and also ordered glow in the dark stickers for them.

I still cant get over how they look, but they fly very nice.

I can't imagine that they would work with every setup. I had never heard of them so I went to their HSOforum, sounds like a great idea, but what happens to guys like me who shoot a whisker biscuit? I would think that the thing would fall off just like they demonstrated in one of the videos on a pass through.

There are still people using those biscuit things huh. Just kidding of course, you need to have a drop away style rest and not all of those work because it does require a fair amount of clearance. They shoot well and I think they would work great for hunting. Good luck and I want to hear what your opinion is when you get a chance to shoot them.

Guess I'll just stick to my AAE fletching then. I wouldn't trade that wisker biscuit for any other kind of rest. I think that it has helped my shooting.

I've got some too and they shoot great. I won't be hunting with them this fall, but I plan on using them in the spring for turkeys and hopefully next year I will have separate arrows dedicated to Fob'n

Shot My fobs today, They seem to be shooting well, One thing I noticed when shooting broadheads they actually twist into the target, you can feel it when you pull it out, much more than with the vanes I was shooting. Grouped 2 tight enough to pop one of the Fobs off kinda cool to watch those things just pop off like that. We will see, going to shoot some more with them before I make the all out change but so far so good.

Goodnews! I got them today! Man they are small. I already have 4 of them set up and will be going right to the field today after work to try them out.

One thing about the cust. service at StarrFlight, they are sure quick to reply to emails. It is nice to answers to questions from companies that quickly. A breath of fresh air as they say.

I hope I get the same grouping "problem" ac777

    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.
