      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 .

Need new Vex Ducer....Which one do I get??

Recommended Posts

Had this Ducer for about 10 years now and it is starting to act up. I would like to get the same degree ducer as the old one. Question is which one did I have. I am assuming that it is a 12 degree one but not sure. This ducer is off of the old SLT model Vex.

Also what are people opinions on the best all around degree option. I understand that it is dependent on what type of fishing that you do. I fish everywhere from shallow panfish to deepwater lake trout (down to roughly 70 Ft).

Easiest way to figure the ducer you have is compare it to new model in the store - should be similar in diameter. Smallest Diameter is 19 deg, largest is 9.

12 deg is most versital. If you do a lot of mixed shallow and deep laker fishing you may want to consider a dual cone 9/19 degree (uses a switch to flip between the two), but it cost you an extra $30.

If you want to read more about the technical aspects/considerations on the ducer angle, the Vex HSOforum has some good info.

I have the dual cone and love it for shallow and very deep water. I have the FL-18 and it came that way not sure if you can use them on other ones though.

If you fish bottom oriented near steep drop offs or if you fish deep water you should go with a 9 degree. If you fish more of a flat bottom or more suspended fish the 19 degree is better.
