      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 .

Hyfax

Recommended Posts

I will never own a house without hyfax. It will add many many years to the life of your tub and it will help to track better behind a sled/wheelers and even pulling by hand. It does help a tad pulling by hand but not too much. Biggest reason for hyfax is to save wear and tear on your sled.

Like said above. Worth every penny!

I've never heard of Hyfax. Can someone shed some light for me? Is there a link anywhere? How much do they cost? Anybody ever use the runner kit sold with the clams?

I can try, but I don't know if I'm 100% right. Hyfax is a white, waxey type strip. You put them on the bottom of sled your house is attached to. It saves the wear on your sled and is easier to pull on ice and pavement. It really saves on your sled when going across a parking lot.

Every one said everything that needs to be said, all good things.

Sandman is right on the money with the description.

I got mine at fl eet fa rm, but have seen them at ga nder, thorne bros ext. Everyone that sells shelters will either have the kits or the ability to order them. I can't remember exactly the kit for my otter sled was, maybe 50 bucks? I'm really not sure if they got one specifically for the clam, but if not it would be easy to make a kit for another brand work.

-side note- I have got a clam 5600 and I made some runners with old cross country skies I got at goodwill for 3$. It lifts the base up out of the snow and makes it very easy to pull. I got mine set up so it lifts the base up 8 inches. I just put them under the sled and use ratchet straps to hold it down. I have even used them with my otter sled when the snow was too deep, and I still had to walk out. Really saves on the back. If you look back a couple days there was a thread going about this.

Also, do a search for HyFax install tips from Shackbash. There are GREAT hints in the video and subsequent tips from others. I got mine done really fast and easy using many of the tips shared.

Basically, get HyFax, it is worth it for many reasons.

Thanks Box, it was nice it did help.

I have found with my circle of fishing buddies and beyond, many did not even know what Hyfax on a pull behind sled was, let along how to install them grin

I figured a video was warranted wink
