      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>

    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
    • Red admiral i believe.
    • Btw......for you bass purists .... a couple days before the above success, I located mostly largemouth with one smallmouth on the edge of bulrushes adjacent to a deep drop off.  Probably a dozen fish in 20 casts with a Senko. Nothing of any real size. Always fun getting fish on four or five consecutive casts.
