      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 .

My bow finally showed up...

... but I'm out of town for work! I'm looking forward to running some arrows through it. Apparently they wouldn't make it in the color-pattern I ordered it in so instead of optifade forest limbs and a black riser it showed up as all black. Oh well... I should get my hand on it in a couple days.

I'm sure after you fire a few arrows through that new rig, you won't give a snit what color it is.

My rest should ship next week and hopefully I'll have it sometime later next week. I've got it set at 69 lbs and the draw cycle is great! It's also quiet, and that's without a stabilizer on it. Unfortunately I can't fix the drawlength (1/2" too short) because our press at the archery club won't fit the rounded limbs on this bow. I'll have to take it in to Scheels and get it fixed. So far, all signs point to me liking the bow though!

Nice looking bow. Always exciting to get a new rig. Good luck with it this fall.

I'm so glad you're not keeping that Whisker Biscuit Rest on that sexy thang. (not that there's anything wrong with that whistlegrin)

LOL- I promise I won't keep it on there! I'm getting a new Trophy Taker drop away to put on there- should ship next week! Once I have that, a small faceplate that they forgot to send with the sight (not necessary to shoot), a wrist strap, and make a decision about a stabilizer (to use one or not), I'll be all set.

I've already run enough arrows through it to know it's a shooter!

Congrat's Scoot and welcome to the Darkside looks like they combined the best out of the last four bows they made.

How's the torque with the new style calbe guard,dose she like too sit square in the hand or top limb leaning towards the right at full draw?

Sniper- I've been to the dark side twice before, so it's not new to me. I kinda like it there... wink

Torque has been a non-issue to me so far.

Rockin' Rod, isn't it past your bedtime? smile

I'm going with "handsome" on this one, because it's a guy! I've had enough with female bows- I find them finicky, tempermental, and that they often don't perform like I want them to! laugh

I haven't settled on a name just yet. The bow is an Insanity, so I was thinking of going down that road. I considered "Manson" or even further down that path and "Helter Skelter", but I don't want my bow to be named after a suicidal maniac who killed innocent people. "Dahmer" or "Gacy" aren't acceptable either- pedaphiles who killed kids aren't worth naming anything after. Any suggestions for a nice, but pretty well known, crazy person?

LOL- I had the exact same thought! Even though I like Ol' Teddy in a lot of ways, I won't name my bow after him. I need a more sane crazy person!!! LOL
