      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 .

So, whats this going to cost me?

Recommended Posts

I have a PSE Polaris, approx 15 years old. This weekend I decided I'd take it out Saturday evening (after having 4 deer within 15 yards of me that morning while turkey hunting-no bow, just the shotgun). Before leaving the house-got it out, took the target broadheads off/put the field broadheads on-checked everything out. Drew it back and "BAM!" The cable broke? Not the string that you nock to-but the cable between the cams.

Couple questions-

1) I'm assuming this is something the Archery shop is going to have to order direct from PSE-not something made at the shop.

2) Any idea what the whole ball of wax will run to repair-cable-string-peep-silencers etc. installed?

Figuring if it runs what I'm thinking its going to, it maybe time to start selling my wife on investing in a new bow for "the family".

buss cables can be 15 bucks for a cheap one, 40 to 60 for a good one. cheap ones usually come in 1/2 inch increments, so they would usually put the longer one on and twist it to make it shorter. should be able to get out of the door for around 20 bucks i would say, ooorrrr, you could tell the miss that you need all new cable, string and goodies that go on the cable and string. loop, nocks, silencers, peep. maybe then she would find it more feasible to buy a new bow rather than fix one that is kinda old!

If you're going to replace the cable, then it is almost a must to do the string as well. not sure on string pricing, but i put on zebra barracuda string and cable on my bow. ordered it off of the net, custom colored, and the bill was $106 after next day shipping.

I just had pro shop order the correct sizes for my bow through vapor trail Custom bow strings and cables. pretty much any color you want, and when they came in the pro shop put them on. I think all you need is to tell them what bow it is, and the length of sting/cables. Both my string and cables in custom colors was like 80 dollars.

I suppose another important question is whether or not it is steel cables. The age that you are giving is right on the brink of having string or steel cables. If it is steel then forget it because there is no way you are going to find replacements. If it is just a regular buss cable than take it in to a shop and have them look it over completely. I work at Gander and the estimate that I would give to replace a cable....and I actually did it last night.....would be about 60 bucks. Although if the bow is that old you might want to replace both string and cable and that will probably run you in the neighborhood of 80 or if you want better strings just over 100

Ya-it's steel cables, which was what made me think if I was going to have them replaced they'd have be OEM parts from PSE. My first worry was that the limbs were cracked, I cant see any visual damage to the riser/limbs/wheels etc.

If already began selling my wife on that fact that it can't be repaired-not worth the cost to replace cables to shoot it and then find out a limb is cracked and its garbage now. Thinking I'll start looking a 2-3 year old used one-get $600-700 in bow for half price?

Was thinking new rest-maybe keep sights, upgrade later.

As to what I'd like to spend,figuring I'd could swing around 3-400 bucks, but we'll see-maybe I'll squirrel a little away for a while.

Scheels. If you order it, and then have scheels put them on, it will cost an additonal 10 dollars i think. But if you have them order, they dont charge the fee. FYI

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure.
