      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 snapped an Avid this week and need to send it back. What's the best method? It broke darn near in the middle, so it is only going to be about 3.5 feet long, but finding a box for it is proving a little difficult.

For a few extra dollars you can pick up a piece of pvc. Maybe you have a scrap piece laying around too.

Yep, I agree about the PVC. It is really not that expensive if you just go buy 4ft or so, and with the new USPS rates, it is usually cheaper to send it via Priority mail because there is no surcharge for extra length. I ship and receive a lot of rods and I have never had any problem with PVC, I have received a couple rods in cardboard tubes, and both of them have been damaged upon arrival. One came in two pieces via FedEx and one came with a couple smashed eyelets via USPS. So I think whenever possible go with PVC, even though your rod is broke, it will be look better for warranty purposes if it is in its present two piece condition than possibly in four.

Not sure if it would be cost effective to come and get it but I have a rod Cylinder that Loomis sent when they repaired my Walleye Series.

I have some PVC also.

Those Walleyes really fight you may want to beef that rod up a little... grin.gif

If I would have broken it on a walleye, I wouldn't have told anyone about it and just ate the cost tongue.gif

Didn't you break that Loomis of yours on a bullhead?
