      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 .

Looking for a light weight auger, 4 stroke, wondering if strikemasters strike-lite auger has been working out okay?

I have one and I love it. No problems this far, starts easy, and lugging it around is a breeze. Best part is pulling up to the pumps and just putting gas in it, no mixing

Check out the Nils Master augers!

They are not 4-strokes, but are very light,tough,start easily, and cut thru ice like butter! laugh.gif

They are also almost smoke free when Amsoil is used in the gas mixture at 100:1.

IMO... here's the rub with the Strike-Lite-

The plastic auger flighting on the shaft is what saves the weight, but it is not that durable and ices up horribly. If you punch 20 holes sequentially, when its below 0 outside, the auger head where the blades are attached will pack so full of slush and ice you can't cut anymore holes.

Once you replace that plastic auger shaft with a regular steel Lazer shaft, you have lost your weight savings and added another $100 to the price tag. But the Strike-Lite is an awesome, awesome auger in this configuration.

We have had motor problems with ours as well, specifically the 4 stroke oil leaking into the combustion chamber.
