Classic vs Elite

Probably too soon, but I wonder if there is anyone out there having both experience with the Air Fusion Classic and Elite...

From the sound of it, wider is less nimble and no side poles is less rigid. The aft storage access seems great.

Anyone owning the Elite yet?

Here is a picture just to get an idea. I actually stopped using the loop system and went to a two single line system. One for up, one for down (including bungee cord). Another, though very small, mod is the ring which I replaced with a mini carabiner which makes it easier to install and remove the s...

Ok, here some pics on the seat modification. I used to hard plastic square 'rings' so not to rip through the wholes. It's actually from a digital camera battery pack protection... which actually lasts long. http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t507/teeloo75/Kayak/IMG_6468.jpg http://i1063.photobucket...

Hi Yvonne, I see you are from Comox! Great. I had my first sea kayak experience there... (Comox Valley Kayaks Ltd) Pole #1 and #2 are indeed supposed to be a bit tough. These two poles do the stretching of the hull. I never was able to normally attach the two. I think if it was, it would be too loos...

Well, to be honest I didn't post a solution any time soon... But after abandoning the Velcro option, I am using the following fix: I made two holes on the aft side of the seat just below the zipper line. Both holes are mirror distance from the center. I use these small holes to put a cord through ma...

Hi, no progress on the rudder option. Didn't have time yet. I use a long cord in a loop for the skeg. The loop ends at the cockpit. Part of the loop (about 10 inches or so) is bungee cord. Pulling on one side makes the skeg come out of the water, flips all the way over on to the deck and stays there...

Fully agree. Reclining though will happen on longer journeys. And getting the seat back is nearly impossible (only ashore). I call this the maneuverability inside the cockpit. After a long time you want to stretch/move/relax, then go back to the correct position. So far the seat will not let you do ...

The seat DOES move. That is because it's not fixed in position at the bottom. The top back part stays put, but the bottom part slide forward. Of course this happens because of bad posture. But with tour kayaking it's impossible to sit upright all the time unless the seat forces you. The FUS' seat do...

Well, I have the skeg too now and I must say it does a great job. Tracking is really good and it also stabilizes more in longitudinal axis (roll), obviously because of the drag sideways. I even think the skeg is over designed and could be smaller. But hej, it's a great product and you can easily alt...

Check out my zipper solution.
Zipper stitches are not waterproof. The tape covers them too, so no problem there.

Here some pics of my solution. The zippers let water through just like that. I have been paddling with high waves and crashing on the deck. First make sure the zipper itself is well seated inside the sidewalls. http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t507/teeloo75/Kayak/IMG_4719.jpg Bow zipper http://i1...

Hi, This is a picture of my FUS inside with thwart removed. What you can see, is that the top part of the top tubes velcro is detached and V-shaped to give space to the top bow pole. This happens naturally as the tubes inflate and get a round shape (the velcro obviously cannot stay attached) Same fo...

The FUS is easy to reenter. It works a bit like any inflatable boat. Pull yourself up on the side of the seating area. Turn 180 once on top and you're sitting 90 off on the FUS. All you need to do now is carefully get your legs aboard.
