      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 .

Question on broken HMXT Fenwick Rod??

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

It has a 5 yr warranty, when I sold them, we took them back no questions asked and gave the guy a new rod but not all retailers are created equal. You may have to send it in to Pure Fishing. They are one of the best companies out there when it comes to warranties.

You probably won't want to tell them that you did it in the yard, That's not covered and it's people breaking rods for stupid reasons that drive up prices and why in a couple years, they will probably eliminate rod warranties.

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.

How 'bout this... Take the broken Fenwick, turn it into a fly swatter and pick up a

St. Croix! Great warranties, better rods, and a staff that has led the industry for years. The problem you run into when using equipment from companies that try to monopolize the industry, is that they care less about the consumer. You won't find that with St. Croix.

Most my walleye rods are all either Fenwicks or Series One Berkleys, reason being I get them cheap and I have alot of them (30-40) But when I'm casting jigs theres a St Criox in my hands.

I started with 2 Fenwick HMX and a Techna AV rods when I started this muskie addiction, again I got them cheap under $100 for all. They have been long ago sold or broken and replaced with St Crioxs, G Loomis and my favorites Thorne Bros customs.

IMO the quality of Berkleys ( Pure Fishing) rods have fallen in the past few years, I still own a first year Series One thats as good a rod or better than my Avid that replaced it. After 20 years of use I decided the Series One would look better on the wall to remind me of all the great years it served me.

I hope they keep the quality up on the Peens since they own them now to.

IMO customs don't get much better than Lonnie's at Thornes! He is a master of his craft - I just ordered up a couple of the new St.Corix/Thorne Bros. Predator rods - The blanks felt pretty sweet!

I have a 9' Predator on order to, I was undecided on 3 choices, Sling Blade, Steel and the Predator. Once I held the Predator there was no question after that.

I have been using Fenwick rods or years and have never had any problems with returning a damaged rod. If the rod was past it's warranty, they took the oringinal purchase price off the price a new rod.

your problem is the store that you bought it from, the guy probably didn't know that Fenwick is a Pure Fishing Company or he just didn't want to help you out. Mail it back to the company and see what they can do for you.

I spoke with Pure Fishing today,

They just asked me to send it in and it would be 10 - 14 days to turn it around. I really don't think they fix it but I will report back in a few weeks with what I get back.

Thanks for all the replys and good luck on your early hunting Esox Mag...
