Re: AF 1007-e vs Straight Edge2 Pro

There's a lot to consider here! The AE1007-E is a sit-inside while the SE2 PRO is a Sit-on-top. So, there's all that comes with those two differences in themselves. Here's a pretty handy guide that might help out: https://www.advancedelements.com/inflatable-kayaks/choosing-your-inflatable-kayak/ The...

Re: Waterproofing and/or UV coating

Those are the correct products. For water repellent, you could also use Rustoleum's Never Wet. AE has tested this product as well with great results. Never Wet can be found at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. There's a few different types (for different applications) just make sure to get the type for fabric.

Re: stabilizers for inflatable kayaks

Stabilizers are really not needed. Inflatables are already super stable.

Re: So hard to find a Drop-Stitch for Convertible

What has happened is that the paddlesports industry as a whole has seen an unprecedented demand due to the pandemic and people wanting to get outside while social distancing. No better way to do that then get on the water! Obviously something that no one could have foreseen. The AFC drop-stitch floo...

Re: Seeking Advice: 1009 seam pinholes pop up all the time

Seam failures are extremely difficult to repair and rarely successful. Also, seam failures/slits usually happen from improper/over inflation. What’s your inflation process? Do you have a pressure gauge? Either way, you'll need a new tube to truly solve the issue.

Re: Bad tracking for 200 pound user

Hi Beth, Do you know how much pressure you are putting in the kayak? Is it sagging or flexing at all on him? If so, you need more air in there. Also, as air cools, it contracts. So, if you are airing it up to 2psi (as specified in the manual) on a hot day and then putting the kayak into cool water, ...

Re: Better bag for the convertible

The AE3011 KayakPack would be a good solution as is has stowable backpack shoulder straps. See here: https://www.advancedelements.com/watertech-gear/travel-bags/ It is the same exact size at the duffel that you already have for the convertible though. With that said, if you reverse your pump and suc...

Re: Newbie - Tips for folding and stowing

Reversing all of the air out of the kayak by using your pump will help a great deal.
