      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 .

Shimano Crucial rods

Recommended Posts

Just got one last week. 6'8" X Fast tip. I've been mostly an Avid user in the past. This particular model "felt better" in the store. The salesman said nothing but good. Slightly cheaper than comparable Avid.

Anyone with a Crucial review, pros / cons, appreciated.

I picked up a Crucial last spring and have no complaints. I've got a St. Croix Avid that I've had for years and I find it very comparable. Great warranty as well. I busted the tip off (my fault) and had it exchanged in-store no questions asked. Great rod for the money.

I bought the same action and length in the Avid, but I looked at the Crucial and really liked how it felt. Had it not been for the deal on the Avid, I probably would have went Shinamo, and this is coming from a St Croix guy....

ok.. If I am fully honest, I have a biased opinion.. I am on Shimanos prostaff, and have been for like 6 years now..

The crucial is one of the best rods I have fished with.. IM9 Graphite, Fuji SIC concept Guides, Top of the line Fuji Reel Seat. They fish great, and have been pleased with each Crucial Rod I own. I feel they make the best Bass Flipping rod and Dropshot rod made..

Then you throw in the lifetime over the counter exchange which is KinG!!! and you have a very nice rod...

However, I did just order 4 of the new Cumara rods.. and cant wait to try them

I have two dropshot spinning 6'8" ML and MH. By far they're the most smooth casting rod I've ever used.

I've got a 7 ft Calcutta spinning rod, that I like better. However it's heavier too, mainly for bass or pike fishing.
