      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 .

Strike Master CS

Recommended Posts

After using my Lazer auger all year recutting holes, it wasnt cutting the best anymore. So I called up Strike Master, and they told me to bring it up there, and they will check it out. I had my wife bring it there today during her lunch. She brought the auger in, the shield strap busted when she took it out of the car. At the front counter they asked her a couple basic questions, took the auger into the back and check the pitch, it was off, said the blades are ok, but were starting to get a little dull.

So the guy adjusted the pitch, put a new strap on the cover for the auger, sold my wife a new set of 9 inch Lazer blades, and a new 10 inch extension, all for less then what I could have bought new blades for at any other place, a total of $35.

And she was in and out of there in about 20 minutes! Man it is great having customer service like that!!

Now you can cut my holes also Scott. I can leave the Nils and Ice Gator at home.

I would cut your holes anytime Tom. Although that Ice Gator is such a nice rig, I would hate to have to mess with my auger, when that thing is king!

A Strike master is no Nil's, but their customer service at the back counter is very, very good. They gave me good advice a month or so ago with my Mag 2000.

I was told the price to adjust your pitch on your auger flights is about how many fingers you can count on one hand wink

Lazer blades new in a box is about $39.00 alone up north wink

Even with all that, next year I will own a Nil's wink

but a nils is no JIFFY

Thanks God, cause if it was I would not be getting a Nil's next year grin

No Jiffy is a good brand, but just not my cup of tea. If I was not switching to Nil's next year, I would stick with Strike Master hands down, but that is just me grin
