      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 .

Stealth Black??

Recommended Posts

I have a question, does anyone have a stealth black Polaris, I am debating between black and blue, but a buddy of mine said dont get black because they show every scratch and brush mark. He said a dealer told him that dealers have a hard time selling the black one. I think the black looks awesome, but I don't want to buy it if it marks up so easily. Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences with the stealth black. They do have a different texture then the other colors and it feels like it would be pretty scratch resistant??

Thanks for any input.

On Polaris the Black and Mossy Oak is molded plastic, most other colors are painted. The painted scratches very easily buy may be able to be buffed out. I think the black is one of the best selling colors Polaris has to offer.

I would get black, but I think the scrathes will more less be scuff marks and will look DULL, adds charactor though. I the part about scratch and then looks white, like the guy said above me molded black will not show as white. it's not painted. Black would be awsome, just might appear a little dull after a while

If it gets scratched..it gets scratched. After all it is designed to be ridden off-road.

Buddy of mine has a stealth black sportsman. He has used and abused it to extreme, and none I repeat none of the scratch's show anymore than my red cat. I would recommend that color to anyone lookn at one.

I would have bought black when I got my kawasaki, the only downfall was that the black kawasaki had red tubing for racks which looked terrible! The best black ATV I have seen is the new Arctic Cat with black paint with pearl in the paint. Ride it in the sun and the pearl coat really stands out!! Looks pretty sweet! Just not a big cat fan.

Black with black rims. It looks even better with the Mattracks.

As for scratches? it's an ATV.

It does clean up nice though.

Running boards are 17" long and 7" wide on my 2008 SP800. No problem with size 11 boots.

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
