      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 .

Rod repair in southwestern suburbs

Recommended Posts

I have a Berkley Series One spinning rod that broke. Can't figure out if it got slammed in a door or what but would like to know if anyone knows someone in the southwestern suburbs that could fix it.

What's broke? If the tip was knocked off you can add a different tip (the action will be different). If the reelseat or handle has issues then that can be rebuilt. If some of the guides are hosed, those can be replaced. If you cracked the graphite in the main part of the rod then you're SOL. You can check with Thorne Brothers about repair, but unless it's just replacing a tip you'll probably find the cost to be fairly prohibative.

I would call Minnetonka Outdoors and see. Not too sure if they fix rods but it's worth a try.

Like DinkADunk said it depends on what got broke. I just repaired a couple rods for people who broke rods in last foot of the rod and it came out pretty good. The problem is it is a time consuming thing to splice a broken blank and make it look OK. I did it cuz one was for family and the other was for a friend and both were custom jobs and would have been pretty hard to replace. If I was to do that for someone off the street it would be pretty pricey. So if you did break the rod/blank and can find someone in your area willing to fix it, don't be surprised it is cost more than just a little $$$.

The blank is cracked right in the middle of the rod between the guides. I might drop it off at Minnetonka Outdoors and have them look at it but I'm pretty sure it's scrap. It was a sweet rod though.

Thanks to all for the info.

Midwest Rod and Reel replaced a guide for me recently and did a great job. I had called Mtka Outdoors but I believe they had to send it out just to fix the guide so I would imagine it would be the same with yours if it's fixable. I would give give MR&R a call. A simple google search should give you their website.
