      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 .

Got a free bow, now what?

Recommended Posts

My brother-in-law gave me his perfectly good older bow when he bought a new one. It is a Darton, I think the model is warrior but I could be wrong. It needs a new string. My father-in-law says he has a string for that bow that has a lifetime warranty that cost $30. Should I just buy that one from him and let him help me put it on? Or would I be better off going to Cabin Fever and letting them do it so they can check other things over? Maybe I should just buy a string from Cabin Fever because then I think they put them on for free, or at least they used to. I have sights for it but I will probably need an arrow rest. Is there any style that is recommended over others? Any help would be great.

Take it in, let them set it up. It may need to be lengthened or shortened for you. I would look at a drop-away rest of some kind. The Ripcord seems to be all the rage right now.

Good luck!

a lifetime warrenty on a bowstring just means it shouldn't fail, but the string will wear out like anything else.

Unless he has the packaging for it and you know it matches the specs exactly, I would go in and get a new string. Who knows how old the one he has is.

I also would go to Cabin Fever and let one of them check it out. They can make sure the draw length is correct, make sure there aren't any defects and that its right for you. Thats where I get all my bow work done. They handled my Darton before I sold it so I know they will take care of you.
