      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 .

Reel Price

Recommended Posts

What would you pay for a Bantam Curado 200CU?

I believe a couple years have passed since it was new but the reel has not seen any action.

they are very solid reels... but take a look at the completed listings on [YouNeedAuthorization]. Should give you somewhat of a figure. I think ppl like the newer ones now because of the new "low profile" setup. IMO... those bantams were awesome!

Pay what you think it is worth. I found a couple last off season for 50 bucks, but they were B series reels and I love em. I would say C series would probably fetch 75 bucks each, not much difference between B and C series reels though.

Ive had at one point about a dozen of the old green curado.. what a great reel. Bulletproof! I have since sold them off used at about $50 each.. But they were used!! I only have one left now, and its a 5.3-1 cranking reel that I updated the bearings on. its smooth and casts a mile, and cant for the life of me get rid of it.. 2 years ago a mouse tried to kill it by eating the handles.. I just put a new set of reel grips on it.. still kicking!

that said... the new Curado is the bomb!!! I now own 4 of them!

If a turkey paints a house yellow on one side and brown on the other, whats the price of the bread in Istanbul?

Many variables will dictate the cost of the bread and many questions must be asked. For starters is this a lead based or water based paint and are we talking about a wild turkey or domesticated farm turkey. The exact color must also be determined is this a bright sunshine yellow or more of a dandilion yellow, straight brown or likewise. The current economic state of istanbul will also influence the cost of the grain to make the bread. Is the bread being served with any sides, turkey perhaps? Hope this helps!

    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though.
