      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 .

Anyone have one of these? I am looking at picking one up...end of season sale and I am curious if anyone else has one and what their thoughts might be. Thanks.

just getting into the sport again after many many years. I have a 99 vmax.

I like the idea of a 4 stroke engine but I do understand they have their issues. I would be mostly doing trail riding in the West central MN area....but enjoy getting off the trail in deep powder here and there.

yeah, of course. I am just curious if anyone has one..and if they would share their opinions. I am scheduled to meet with the dealer tomorrow and test one...but I just thought I would ask for some outside input.

They made a lot of changes to the front end from last year. The 08 were bad they were hard to handle and you took so much of the blows to your arms. I agree i would test drive one befor buying. What makes you interested in a Nytro??

I drove an '09 this fall and that thing is awesome. I drove the Ski 4-stroke too and that things was also awesome. It would be a tough call between the two. I would look at that Ski too. It is lighter that the Nytro. Either way, both sleds pull HARD!

What makes you interested in a Nytro??

Yes, I do plan on driving it before making my decision. Your the 2nd person who has said that to me. Is it common for people to spend that sort of money and not even test drive it? That would be crazy!

Why am I interested? No specific reason really...other than I spoke to a couple of people who have tested it and gave it good reviews. It also seems that Yamaha has a good reputation with their 4-stroke engines. If I understand it correctly, its Yamaha's cross over sled.....good for trails and some powder...and that concept appeals to me.

I guess the dealership is just over the bridge and I spent an afternoon checking it out...and thought it looked like a nice sled. I am open to other sled suggestions... Thanks

A common complaint is that they off little wind protection and gets very cold riding one(even with the tall windshield and side deflectors). Handwarmers dont get very hot.

bad ice build up in the tunnel while power riding..some people are saying they get over 30 lbs of ice build up!!!!

lacks ski pressure..which hurts trail and cornering performance.

I was actually considering one before this season and now Im glad I didnt get one.

Not that this site doesn't have great responses but you should check out www ty4stroke com and read all you want. You'll find more actual users/owners on there. Everything that I've read/experienced, this would definitely be the sled I would buy right now.

    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
