      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 .

POWER PRO VS. SPIDERWIRE

Recommended Posts

basser

Time to think about respooling for spring. I have used Spiderwire exclusively the past couple of years and it has been great to use. The only problem is the $120.00 it costs to spool all the rods. I have heard several people talk about the Power Pro,and being quite a bit cheaper I was thinking about giving it a try.Any thoughts? Is it as limp and easy casting as Spiderwire? Thanks

I like Power Pro over Spiderwire. IMO it is much "limper" than wire and holds no memory. I am going to spool PP on more rods this year now that I had a chance to use it without spending mucho $$ and not liking it.

I haven't used power pro line but I've used spider wire and have settled on fire-line!! I use fire-line on most of my bass and northern rigs, and when it starts to get used I simply unspool the line and turn it around. Very rarely do you spool off more than fifty yards while fishing, this leaves the rest of your spool unused and brand new when you turn it around!!

I'll throw another one into the mix-
Whiplash
I have been VERY impressed with it so far.
As for PP and Spiderwire, they are basicly the same thing. Both are made with Spectra fibers. The only diference I've seen is in the price.
Actually, I'm not sure if Spiderwire is still made with Spectra, it used to be, but I know for sure that PP is. I've heard from people who have always fished with Spiderwire and they say that the newer stuff is not as good as it was when it first came out.

I've used Whiplash, Fireline, and Power Pro and like 'em all - in different applications. Also used Cabela's braided and will never buy another spool. Cabela's does a lot of things right, but not line.
Don't care for the fraying of the Fireline after it's been on awhile (probably more of a psychological thing), but do still use it, because it can be purchased inexpensively at Berkley's outlet store in Spirit Lake, IA.
