      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 .

Just spooled some up last weekend. Seems nice and quiet. I've casted with it a few times and like the feel. I am not much of an original PP guy but this stuff is quite different. So far, so good.

I have, it casts better than original Power Pro, and much quieter through the guides.. seems less stiff as well. Which is nice.

I have some on my jiging rods and it is very smooth but still has the feel of the superlines.

Anyone know how it compares to Sufix 832? How is it with retaining water, resisting digging into spool (for baitcasters)?

I've been pretty happy with 832, but its good to keep up on other options.

Have you heard or estimated thats its supposed to be powerpro's version of 832? I thought that 832 was a little over rated with all due respect. I would rather use normal powerpro vs 832. I'm trying to form a decision to buy a spool or not.

IMO where 832 shines over Powerpro - much quieter through the guides, and a lot drier. I would assume you would see the same improvements with Super Slick over normal PowerPro.

Not to hi-jack this thread but I've been trying to compare this to the sunline braid fx2. Anyone?

I took a look at this line at Gander today. Is brown the only choice for color?

No, it comes in blue, green, and yellow too. I think brown was the first color out of the factory though and that's what most stores got at first. I've seen green, but I'm guessing most stores want to move the brown line first.

I'm a hard core PP guy for Lindy rigging because it's very limp and comes off the spool easy. I tried 832 10#/4# this weekend and hated it. It was constantly sticking and hard to get off even with some reel majic. I have to be the hardest guy in the world to please with line because 832, nano, fireline and crystal have all gone in my garbage. This is getting expensive, do most people fish so little they think the stuff works or is it just Lindy rigging it all sucks for? I'm almost afraid to even try the super slick PP for just this reason, I guess when you find something you like you should stick with it but you know were all suckers for new and improved.

I love this stuff. I have always been a power pro guy and am switching from the original to the super slick. Its way more quiet and smoother. Funny thing is, you dont really notice the noise difference until you make the switch.

Found it in NEON Green at Dick's Sporting Goods. Funny thing was, I was actually looking for timber brown and they didn't have it.

I loved regular PP had it on all my rods tell i got some 832, lil pricy but i think its the best stuff iv ever used. And PP super slick in my opinion is still a lil stiffer then 832.

      Well you must be called JerkinLips for a reason!   May be you should switch to the foam bobbers so you don't put an eye out!! Nice fish.

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.
