      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 .

Abu Garcia Veritas and Vendetta

Recommended Posts

Anyone use these rods. All the reviews I have found seem to be pretty positive but seem to be from mostly bass fisherman. Was wondering if anyone has used them Walleye fishing. I was thinking of going with a 7' Veritaas paired up with an Orra SX for casting cranks from the waders and a 6'3" Vendetta paired with an Orra S for jigging. If anyone has any reviews of these rods or reels it would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah what do bass fisherman know? smirk

But on a serious note, I have no first hand experience yet but plan on buying one of the Veritas rods myself. They seem like really nice rods and I too have heard good reviews. The Vendetta dont impress me as much.

I guess I may have not worded it the way I should have have. Most of the reviews I have read are from people pitching jigs and other applications that are mostly casting rod applications. I myself am looking at a couple of spinning rods. Not that there should be a big difference but there may be. Didnt mean to say that I do not want bass fisherman input, any input would be awesome so I am sorry for coming off that way.

Just giving ya a little razzing no feeling were hurt.

I see what you're saying about mainly bass fisherman doing the reviews maybe because it seems this line of rods is geared more towards the bass fisherman, not to say it wouldn't catch a walleye just as good. A good rod is a good rod regardless of intended species.

I have two vendettas and will not consider purchasing another. They fish well in my opinion in terms of backbone and sensitivity. However, I've had the same model blow to pieces on hook sets twice. I considered the first one a fluke. The second time was last September and it exploded like a gunshot. I ended up with an 8" section of the rod sticking out of my chest (I was wearing a light T-shirt). It buried itself about 3/8" and I still have the scar. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION IN THE BOAT!!

For what its worth, that was the 7'2" Heavy Action. First time I was casting frogs and the second time was a football jig.
