      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 was told today by Archery Country that it will have an IBO of 340-360! That sure seems high. Next week is when they announce.

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get one in 70lbs after losing my elk this year d/t poor penetration. Anyone need an Outback? grin

I just saw one of their new ads... 340-360. Had to compete with the X-Force I guess. Anyone want a slightly used Drenalin? grin Bowtech and Diamond have some beauties too... tough decisions this year.

Today is the 17 and that should mean we get to see a new bow or two. i've heard some people say they are releasing 3 or 5 this year but not sure if i believe all of that but regardless im dying to see. So i tried to get on the matthews HSOforum to see if they have the new bows posted but it wouldn't let me said the server wasnt working so has anyone seen the new line up yet?!? If someone could can you post the pictured on here otherwise i will just wait until it works.

We got the reezen in today and that thing is unbelievable. Blazin fast, smooth draw, super quiet even without anything on it, and very little hand shock.

So just curious how much forgivness or acuracy are you giving up with going with a 6.5 brace height instead of a 7? can it really make that much difference. i read an article that since i have a short 27inch draw that going with a smaller brace height wont hurt. Im sure liking that reezen everytime i look at just makes me want to buy one!

That was my biggest concern about this new bow when I heard about the IBO was accuracy. I wonder what the forgiveness will be like with these amazingly fast speeds? I wouldn't give up accuracy for speed, we'll see when the reviews start coming in I guess.

I've been reading up on the 6.5 and it seems like guys are experiencing some hand shock. Smooth draw with a solid wall though. I won't even consider it as I'm not a speed guy but I'd definitely like to shoot the Reezen 7 when it becomes available.

I made a trip to Archery Country in St. Cloud this past weekend to shoot a couple bows and ended up coming home with a Matthews Reezen 6.5 It has a smooth draw with a little hump at the end but its not bad IMHO. Had some vibration but not much at all and all that was fixed with a stabilizer and a STS now its dead in the hand. I also shot a Hoyt AM 32, Bowtech Admiral, and a PSE xforce but overall i choose the Matthews. Im a short draw archer so i was looking for a speed bow and at 26inch DL, 70lb DW, and a tad over 360grain total arrow weight it crono's at 295-300. That is right were it should be considering IBO of 340 with a 30inch draw. Very impressive for a single cam bow that is pleasurable to shoot! I put on a QAD HD pro series rest,STS, Apex Nitrus 6pin sight,Apex MQX Nano Quiver, limbsavers Scoil stabilzer, and some Carbon Express Maxima Hunter 250's. Couldnt be happier or more excited for the up coming bow season!

No it wasnt a cheap day at all. I guess my thing is if im going to use a bow for 10 years i want something that is going to make me happy. Plus knowing how good Matthews customer service is sure makes me smile knowing i will have the bow for some time.

Just think how far we've come - 26" draw length and you're shooting almost 300 fps. I used to think that would just make me miss faster, but fortunately they are making the bows better shooting as well. Have fun!

ps: don't worry, Mathews is still the innovative leader. PSE just beat them to the punch on the speed thing

Mathews just put the monster out to show they could build a speed bow. Matt isn't all that excited about it. It's just a fast bow and that's it. That's how he put it anyway.

    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Of course!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy.
