      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 .

I'm having drag problems with the reel I just purchased. Ive only used it once for about an hour and all of a sudden it wouldnt reel up my lure, it would reel up slack line but nothing heavier. Then I noticed my drag isn't working at all, I took it all apart and oiled it up real good I put it back together and now it only reels when it wants to and the drag still doesnt work. I don't know whats wrong I just bought this reel mad.gif...anyone have any ideas??? thanks.

You probably need new drag washers. If they got "oiled up real good" they are probably slipping from too much oil.

well that's easy. If you "just bought it". Return it for a different one.

Are you sure the line isn't slipping on the spool?

AHHHHH, Good question. Mono or power pro type superline? if you didn't tape it at the beginning or put on some mono backing, the power-pro/spiderwire type line will slip on the spool.

Seems there is always someone on the equipment forum that can answer just about any question. Gotta love this forum.

You have no idea how many people this happens to. Its a very common mistake when spooling superlines. If you don't put electrical tape around the spool first, or use mono backing, its not a matter of if it will slip, its a matter of when.

Good to hear you got it figured out!

Yep,

Just happened to my nephew on our family vacarion with his new 5600 C3 reel. After messing with it for 10 minutes I asked him if e used any mono backing. No he didn't and I knew it was his spiderwire slipping on the spool.

Happens to a lot of folks.
