      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 .

Jerky/Sticky drag

Recommended Posts

I have a brand new reel and the drag is really jerky on it. It's a JR's tackel reel so I don't think the quality is bad. I checked and it doesn't look like it has any grease on it. Is this the problem most likely?

Have you pulled the reel apart yet? It could be something is just lodged in there. Is the spool drag jerky? I would take it back to the place you bought it from and show them what happened first, sometimes those reels are tough to re-assemble properly which would void your right to take it back.

I ordered it online last year and the first reel had the same issue so I called and they sent me a new one. It was the same way and I didn't have time to monkey around with it then and kind of forgot about it. I have 2 of the reels. I just took the spool off and looked, later this week I am going to really look into it. The drag works it's just like it is sticky or something. It's not smooth. That's about the only way I can explain it.

If you have had TWO of them with problems the best thing you could and should do would be to send them back and request a refund. Then go buy a brand name reel of some sort.
