      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 .

Blazers with fix blade broadheads?

Recommended Posts

Rainman

I was told that you dont use fix blade BH with 2" blazer vanes by someone at a pro shop. My understanding was they were designed for Fixed blade broadheads. Anybody have any input on this? This pro shop also screwed up the cable on my new bow and denied it. They wrecked it right in front of me as I was watching them.

Wife and I both shoot Blazers and the arrow flight is good on both.

She shoots around 40lbs with Muzzy MX3.

I shoot around 65lbs with Rage 2 Blade.

Like DC said, a properly tuned bow and corrrect balance.

Practice is always a key.

It sounds like you were dealing with a regular rocket surgeon! wink

As was said above, ignore him- he doesn't know what he's talking about. If you do snoop a bunch on this online you'll find that there are literally thousands upon thousands of people shooting Blazers (or Blazer-like) vanes with fixed heads. That's what I shoot for elk and I've been very happy with it.

I hope you got satisfaction regarding your cable. If not, I'd be talking to a manager. If I didn't get satisfaction from the manager, I'd be talking to his/her boss...

I'd try & have them replace your cable for you and then switch shops in the future. Definitely not a technician I'd want working on my rig!

Sorry for the potential hi-jack... but I am wondering what the benefit is from moving from regular 3" vanes to blazers with fixed blade?

I am new, just using regular vanes, and honestly not even released my first arrow at a deer yet. I practice in summer, shooting field tips and also testing broadheads a bit to make sure. Is this something I should think about, or just keep shooting what I have and then progress over time as I see the need arise?... I have 60#, 28.5" draw, and Thunderheads for now. I am sure many reading this are newbies like me, and wondering similar, as there are many choices. Thanks for advice. smile

I still use the Rages some, but the last doe I shot with the 2-blade rage had a terrible blood trail despite a perfect shot, the Rage made a slit and the fascia/skin just covered it up. She only went 100 yards but there was almost no blood.

Plus I just like the security of cut-on-contact, there's no fear of mechanical failure, or bumping a blade off the o-ring before shooting, etc. Not to mention Muzzys are about a quarter of the price of Rages

BoxMN feel no need to fix what isn't broken. I switched to the blazer style when they first hit the market because I wasn't happy with the regular vanes performance they where also not holding up and tearing. Since switching to blazers I have rarely had a vane rip and I love practicing at long ranges they will steer my slick tricks straight beyond a 100 yards.

      Any body know how much ice is on Maple Lake?
    • eyeguy 54
      just bring 1 or you will end up taking 16 back....  LOL 
    • leech~~
      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!! I think I still have 17 cans of beer in my basement of the 18 can case I brought last year no one drank, I can bring again!!
    • eyeguy 54
      you might need to drag me back after I eat all the treats! 
    • eyeguy 54
      6 to 7 inches where I was this morning. lotta smalls again but a few nice ones in the mix. This nice male just broke nine inches. Not a monster but a beauty.

      Anyone been around the western edge or north side of Pine with sled or atv?
    • trro0901
      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
