      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 .

Has anyone used either of these? Do you like them? And what makes one better than the other?

I have used and still use the Luminocks. Its easy to follow your shot and see where you hit. Also alot easier to find your shot arrow. I have three arrows in my quiver with these. I would buy them again.

I second HL's comments. Lumenoks are a great tool. They have helped me find arrows quickly a number of times. They really give you a good sense of where exactly your hit was too, especially in low light situations. I always have at least one in my quiver.

I've used Lumenocks & liked them, but I couldn't get the thing to stay on consistently. I shot it through a deer & the light went out so I couldn't see the arrow from the stand, which was stuck in the ground almost vertical right where the deer had been standing. I may try another one or two, maybe I just got a faulty one.

This may help to keep them on. when I first started to use them I had a real problem with turning them on and off. What I now do is, just turn the nock to turn it off a small amount. I was trying to pull it out and I did, to far and then it would not go on.

Very small twist with your fingers and then I have had great luck with them.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone tried to make your own lighted nocks?

There is a video on a video hosting site, search for "homemade lighted nock".

I lost a deer a few years ago on a 30 yd. broadside shot and have been shooting the lumenocks ever since. The shot looked great from what I remember seeing, right behind the shoulder. It was a complete pass-thru with OK blood for 150 yards. Then it started to peter out and I followed deer tracks for another 100 with a droplet every 30 yards. Never found that deer. I think I hit it slightly high, and my mind convinced me that the arrow went where I wanted it to, not where it actually went.

Ever since, I haven't had that problem. Watching your point of impact is ultra-easy, and can tell you alot about your next move and how soon you want to trail that deer. You'll see if you make a bad hit, and it'll be burned into your memory with how bright that nock is, especially in early morning or later evening. It could be the difference between pushing a deer with a mediocre shot vs. getting him the next morning dead where he first bedded.

If you film, it's a must IMO. Great for turkeys too, as shot placement is even more critical.

My only complaint thus far is that I've been getting some inconsistent funky arrow flights. I haven't narrowed down whether or not it's a problem with some other component, or my arrow weights and FOC are screwy from the heavy nock. It's hit or miss, but just make sure to practice with them to make sure everything is good.

I've only tried the Lumenocks this year and love them, however only been shootin at the 3-D in low light. Still waiting for Mr. Big. Definitely nice to see the arrow's path and enter point and seem to have no effect on my accuracy.

Next chance I get, I'm going to try the homemade ones. Should be able to make them for $3-4.
