      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 .

Help on Guide Series Reels

Recommended Posts

Vuddah

Hey guys, I am a big Shimano fan when it comes to reels but the other day i stopped by Gander Mountain and was looking at the other reels that they have on stock. I was interested in the Guide Series reels. I heard that are made by Pinnacle. I don't quite know the quality and performance of a Guide Series reel was wondering if anyone could help add there $0.02.

Thanks guys,

Vuddah

Depending on the reel you were looking at it could be made by just about anyone. In the past 10 years they have reels made by several companies. I have had many gander reels and they were all a ok buy for the money. I just got 2 line counter reels of Ganders and they are working very well for the $.

I roam the Metro forum during the summer and the Duluth forum while I am up at school so this isn't the first time you have helped me out. Thank you Northlander!

A couple years ago I bought a combo baitcaster from Gander for my son. The reel lasted one season. When we brought it into Gander they said they will just replace it with a new one. Model was discontinued. Not being impressed by the reel we decided to trade it in and got a $99.00 Quantam baitcaster at the recommendation of the sales associate. He said he would do an even swap on the reels since there was only a $20 difference. Won't buy a guide series again.

Your welcome V-man.

Heck at the price I paid for these reels if they last me a full year they will be worth it. So far they have handle downrigging and pulling boards with no problem.

The fact that Gander will take them back for almost any reason is also a big plus. Try that with another brand without a reciept and they say "sorry, send it in" to whatever brand it is.
