      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 .

String Loop Problem!

Recommended Posts

EatSleepFish

I recently had a new string loop put on my bow and since then whenever I draw the bow, the arrow "suspends" above the rest at mid-draw, but either falls down away or falls back onto the rest once I am at full draw. I have a NAP Quiktune 1000 rest. Does anyone know how to fix this problem without going to the pro shop?

Might just need to be adjusted. I know many that are very good with the loop on the string.

Did you have one on the bow before or is the a new addition? Are you using the same release?

If this is a new loop, did you place it in the same position as this is just like your knocking point. I believe you will need to also use a release for a loop.

Also. if a new loop that you never used, more than likely you changed your draw lenght a little bit.

Many things could factor in to your problem.

Your rest likely isn't the issue at all.

Probably your new loop is a little shorter than the old one (or you switched releases too and the new one extends a little farther toward your nock). I'd bet your release is bumping the back of your arrow nock and forcing the arrow to elevate, then fall away from the rest.

That's what happened to me when I switched loops. I fixed it by trimming about 1/16 inch off the back of the arrow nock. The nock still anchors itself in the string but the release doesn't hit it anymore and the arrow lays on the rest just fine during the whole draw.

Try using a razor blade and trimming just a little bit off the back of one arrow nock and see if that fixes things.

No I didn't have a loop on my string before, but had one put on account of how much the serving was getting torn up where I would put my release. I don't think the loop is too short, in fact it adds a whole 3/4 of an inch to my draw length. I've watched the release and it is not touching the nock at all while drawing back. I'm thinking the nock is getting pinched somehow by the loop when the cams are just starting to turn over since that is when the string has the most pressure applied to it.

If the loop pinches the nock from top and/or bottom on the draw, the loop needs adjusting so it's got a wider gap. Either that or your release is riding up or down on the loop as it comes back instead of in the center of the loop, which would cause one side of the loop to bump the nock.

Otherwise, I dunno? Any other thoughts?

My guess is that the loop is pinching the arrow nock. Some people tie in nock points above and below the arrow nock to prevent this. I've never found it necessary though. If you had a shop install it for you, take it back and have them tie on a new one that is spread out a little more so it doesn't pinch. You could also learn to tie your own, it's pretty easy.

The shop that does my bow recommended I not use the loop,because there so hard too tune and they wont work with some arrow rests.Thats what I was told I've shot bows for almost 50 years and I'm not knowledgable in tuning,matching,new bows so I have to go by what I'm told.

I like my UltraNok.

It's a metal loop. Won't wear out, move or pinch.

I second the UltraNok. Peep is always aligned, no string wear and no pinch on arrow. Plus you can use a hook or caliper release with it.

Yeah, I've finally realized that pinching is the problem after close examination of my loop while drawing back. I'll take it to my bow shop and have them spread the loop a little. Thanks guys!

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
