      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 .

Fenwick Warranty????

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how the Fenwick warranty works??

I have a Fenwick, HMXT 80MHC 8' Rod, (3/4 - 3oz, 15 - 30 lb, MH) I was tossing some musky baits in the back yard last night my hooks snagged in the grass and then SNAP!!!! It broke right in half, just (2) equal pieces is what I have left. mad

I was not really fishing just blowing off some open water spring fever and now I have a broken rod. frown

Does anyone know if this would be covered under warranty??

Thanks for your input

I just called them up and they had me send in my broke one and they sent me a new one. They even upgraded for me since they didn't have the one I broke anymore. but that was about 5 years ago.

On the HMX models, it covers defects in materials and workmanship for 5 years. If you didn't register it, I'm not sure if Fenwick has a method to determine age. St Croix utilizes serial numbers to determine year and month of manufacturing. Your best bet would be to call them and explain the situation. Depending on condition, I have taken some of my rods back to the retailer I purchased them from and they did an over the counter exchange. Most companies are trying to get out of this exchange to avoid the middle man and holding the retailer responsible if the rod isn't covered under warranty. Two brands that come to mind with an over the counter return is Shimano (some models) and Fig Rig. Granted Scheels and Gander will provide an over the counter return on their models. I hope this helps. Also, if you decide to go directly through Fenwick, make sure that you ask for their name and direct number. I do this with all the companies I do business with. It makes it easier in the long run if I have another issue that needs to be dealt with.

I had one break. I called them and told them the story and that I did not have a receipt and had never registered it. They told me to pack it up and send it to them. I did and a about a week later I received a new rod. I did have to send a check along with it for the shipping.

The way you broke it would not be covered under any warranty.

I have had cheap Gander rods break and they took them back. They now offer a rod warranty for like $5 for a extended 2 years past the exsisting warranty. I get it on any Gander rods I buy. Worth every cent. Oh and keep the reciept with it.

I tried taking it back to FF Friday,

They said they no longer carry that Brand.

Then I found some Fenwick products on the rack and no one knew what to say.

Either way I did not get a favorable response.

If you make it to the cities go to Joes sporting goods on Rice street and Hwy. 36. They'll take care of you, they may have you pay $20 for S&H>

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
