      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 .

which e collar?

Recommended Posts

anybody else get the Tri Tronic 40th anniversary card in the mail? They are offering 40% off on a new collar if you send in your old collar. I have an old field 70 that I like but have considered getting a unit that is a bit smaller and lighter. Do you guys that have the small walkie talkie style transmitters like them as well as the old "flashlight" style that I currently have. I kind of like the old style as it fits in the holder on my game vest and is easy to find the button without haveing to look for it. Also am not sure if I would like having the new smaller model that hangs around your neck. Just looking for some feed back on the other style of transmitter

It would be a nice up grade. They have improved a lot since you got yours. The nicest feature for your dog is the "tone". Teach your dog that and you can stop Zap'm them.

The locator tone is indeed a nice feature. Has almost eliminated the need to nick my dogs. I have a Dogtra and it really is a great collar. Like you, I first thought having the transmitter hanging around my neck would be a pain, but it really isn't a big deal at all. I'd say you have the opportunity for a very nice upgrade.

Gadgetman,

If you are not going to use that 40% off card, please send it my way wink

I have the G2 model today and instead of having it hang around my neck, I bought a holder that has a clip so I attach it to a belt loop on my pants. Works pretty decent.

I won't own another Tritronics. I had repeated issues with the ones that I owned. Switched to Dogtra and never looked back. I have run a two dog system and it has worked flawlessly for 3 years. Its used year round and I still haven't had to swap out the rechargeable batteries.

I currently own TT and Dogtra and would recommend both.

Gadget - a 40% off coupon would make the decision quite easy, IMO, as long as it wasn't from INNOTEK!

I had a 13 year old Field 70(called the Judge) that I sent in this morning. It was still working fine just too bulky. Ordered a new Pro 100 Exp, paid less than I paid 13 years ago for the other one. Can't beat that deal!

Thanks for the input guys. I am NOT looking to trade to a different manufacturer of collars, I like my TT just fine. I was just wondering if people liked the small transmitter as I am used to the larger unit that I have had for 8 years. They are offering me a pretty good discount on a new model and I guesss that I will have to take them up on their offer

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.

    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
