      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 .

Polaris Prospector Pro Tracks?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering who has them and if they like them. Also, about how much do they cost? I've been debating getting some for my atv, but have also been thinking about getting a snowmobile. I like the idea of not having to maintain two machines. Thanks for any comments.

If you have other track systems thay you like I would love to hear about them. Thanks!

Raven&Nate,

I have the Mattracks for my sportsman 800. I like them enough that I do not need a snowmobile. They give me 17" to 18" of clearance and at 60mph there is a ton of throttle left. Three years ago I paid $4800.00 for the tracks.

somethingfishy will fill you in on the Prospectors as he has then for his sportsman 800.

Yes, the sportsman 800 has alot of throttle left at 60 mph with the Mattracks. Not saying I will go faster then 60 mph but it is there if one wants to.

I have the Prospector Pro's on my 800, I get about 45mph out of the GPS with the tracks on even though the speedo is reading around 60. The tracks are going to take away about 1/3rd of your top speed. Also if you don't have atleast a 700cc machine dont waste your money on tracks as a 500 class machine really doesn't get the job done. The Prospector Pro's will give you minim al additional ground clearance but still keeps you going strong.

Prospector PRO's run under $4K with the mounting brackets.

Picture of the 500 when we first tried the tracks.

Lastly 2 shots of my 800 (top left and bottom right) and my buddies 700 (top right and bottom left) with tracks. His 700 has the standard Prospector Tracks from a few years ago.

That's what I thought.

So when my speedo is reading 75mph I should be going 60 correct? Sounds good, I will have to give it a run with my GPS this winter.

Thanks for the photos and responses. Those machines look great! How easy are the prospector tracks to put on and off. Can you easily switch between the tracks and tires? Is a rookie like myself able to do it? Thanks again!

After the initial install it's not too bad as you can see and know where everything goes. Removing the tracks by myself took about 2 hours but I was in no rush. The downside is that you have to remove the entire mounting brackets as otherwise it will cause damage to your rims and there is more to catch rocks and loigs on. I tried to leave the brackets on with a 12" wheel, you may not need to remove the brackets with a 14" wheel but I would remove them anyways so as not to have any conflicts.

I propose a little "party" for all of us with tracks to get together and get these machines prepped for the winter one by one nsince it is a slightlt time consuming task. Then head out once the snow flies for a tracked ATV group ride.

What about the Mattracks, do they go on and off quickly? I wouldn't imagine swapping them on and off a whole lot, but more curious if I could install them myself. Thanks again guys.

Those are the types of machines I think would be great for some back country laker action in NW Ontario!

Once the Mattrack's brackets are installed, (easily done yourself) you don't need to take the brackets off when swapping from tires to tracks. As far as I know, Mattracks is the only all-season track system, too. About double the price but, that depends on your terrain needs.

There are some zerk fittings on the Mattracks. That's the only maintenance I know of.

My prospectors pros are the same way. I put the machine in the heated garage to melt all the snow off after every use, then grease them up depending on the conditions and amount of use.

For a good comparison visit: ATVTRACKS DOT NET, very good people to work with that know their stuff when it comes to tracks.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
