      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 .

Tiller settings on bow

Recommended Posts

Cooter

Should they be the same(top and bottom) for both single and double cam bows? And you measure from the string to where the limb meets the limb pocket? Thanks.

I think each bow is different, however, would assume they should be pretty close.... I would e-mail the company for the bow you have to be sure.

I'll do that DD, thanks. Is my assumption on the measurements good?

Yep.. there is a level tool that clamps to the string and usually has markings for measurment.. Like this one here.

Move this item up the string to where the level meets the limb and take a measurement.. .do the same for the bottom limb.

I will say this.. I had/have a bow that shoots better with the bottom limb a tad tighter than the top.. Its all about fine tuneing, and how crazy you want to get with it... I used to be a hard core tune guy and spend hours at it. SO that I could shoot X's on a NFAA target at 20 yards with no fletching. As I have gotten older I have become a little more "normal"....

Most single and twin cam bows these days require the tiller be set equal top and bottom. I have not run across one yet nor have a read anything that says to adjust it differently. Easton makes a good tuning document that you can download for free that helps with tuning the bow. I belive in there it says to make sure the tiller is even on both ends.

I got the Easton tuning guide printed out and it is very helpful. However, I called the archery shop where I got my bow and the tiller settings will not be the same on that bow. The easy solution was to crank er all the way down and back it off one turn on each limb. The different tiller settings had something to do with axle being centered on the idler wheel and not on the cam - don't ask me to explain any further cuz I couldn't tell ya. grin.gif

You shouldn't need to worry about tiller settings on a single cam bow for the reason cooter just mentioned. It is important to pay close attention to it on a twin cam bow because the cams need to be in time with each other to eliminate nocking point movement.

Eye-I however still think its important to pay attention to your tiller settings as you dont want one limb more flexed than the other. I could be way wrong on this.. I shoot a cam.5 wich is a hybrid solo type cam.

One thing I learned in my PSE tech training: The string on a single cam bow does not run parallel to the riser. For this reason it is difficult and perhaps inaccurate to measure from the limb pocket to the string. Counting the turns may be the best way to keep the tiller even. It is an important adjustment. Obviously for a twin cam bow, to keep timing...but also to keep the bow shooting smoothly...if the tiller is not set equal, one limb is operating at a different poundage...higher or lower...this will cause nock travel and flight errors. (think of a sling shot with one tight band on one side, and a looser band on the other...how can it shoot straight?)

The first step we learned from George at PSE school..."Check the Tiller..even?...proceed"

good luck and good shooting.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
