      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 just got 2 of the 48mm lights as well.. Question for you guys that have them installed.. Are you just zip tying them to the pole's/frame in the portables? Do you have any problems with the LED's breaking?

Holy cow....Are you lighting a barn? cool

I have one and it's more than enough in my 2-man.

To answer your question yes I have a set twist tied to my center pole. I put a larger gauge wire on in place of the old flimsy one and just loop it around the poles and out of the way when in use.

i went to the local hardware store and got some clear tubing and put the LED strips into the tubes essentionally creating a high power "rope light". then i just use little velcro strips, used to organize A/V cables, to the poles in the shack. That way the leds are a little more protected.

I can't imagine having 5 strands running. You'd probably be able to get a tan if you took your shirt off. I just rigged 2 strands into my otter this weekend. I put them both on individual switches because I can't imagine needing both of them running at the same time very often. They seemed fairly hardy to me. I just zip-tied both strands to my overhead bar. I guess time will tell how they hold up.

I just ordered 2 strands for my trap Yukon. Went with the regular white. I'd rather have it a little brighter then wish I had more light. I know a few people say 1 strand is more then enough. If I'm blinded by 2 I have a few people who would buy them from me.

My dad will be putting them in tomorow. I will let you know what ends up happening. I think we will use them all though and just run them on diffent batteries, we have a free supplier of good vex type batteries!

I tell ya what. I've now heard from several guys (not hearsay, but straight from the source) that they received these lights either completely broken, or a portion of the lights don't work.

I guess these things happen that understandable, especially since they are built and shipped overseas, however the big problem is getting any kind of response from the seller, and if you do, it takes SEVERAL weeks to take care of the problem.

Buyer Beware

I am one of them people that has received bad ones from them. The customer service is horrible! Buyer Beware !!

I have orderd 6 lights from him, 2 of them came out of the package not working, and another string has 6 lights out in the middle. I have spent almost $150 for these 6 lights with shipping, and half work. He wont return your emails when you tell him you have problems. When you get a good set they work great, but for me 3 lights out of 6 for $150, not worth it!

But the worst part, is the lack of a reply when I email him to tell him about my lights. Although I noticed if you email him to order a new light, he will email you back the next day mad
