      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

well i decided it time for new portable. i went with the GT fortress.(wanted more room) my XLTwin has been great even made some mods to it. which is why i stayed with frabill. if i had more $$$$ i would have gone with R2-tec. unfortantly no one had them in stock so i couldnt see one in person. only HSOforum pics. would be great if anyone that has/had one give pros/cons or some pics in use that would be great. supposed to be in by end of week. and then week later off to LOW!!!

Lots of room

Very comfortable chairs

Sets up fast

Never frosts up on the walls

Warms up very fast inside

Windows are velcrowed in and can be replaced

Big sled with lots of room in it

If i ever need another one it would be insulated again


In -40 temps the sled will frost up on the inside(back wall)with the wind at the back.

If you use a big buddy heater and turn it on hi,it warms up so fast you will be peeling the window out trying to get some cool air.

The inside material is white.Some of the aluminum from the poles gets on the material and is hard to get it off.

Here`s a few pictures
