Please contact customer service at info@advancedelements.com for help with this. Include your Hull ID # for the best assistance. The Hull ID is the serial number starting with the letters XZE on the stern of the kayak.

The Angler PRO is a whole other animal in comparison to the SE2. The major differences that make it "Angler" ready are: A drop-stitch floor which enables the paddler to easily stand up and sight cast. The rigid DS Floor is a rock solid platform for standing. A wider stance for added stability while ...

Hi Ross, Depending on your height, the Expedition Elite would be a great yak for what you have described. We have had someone as tall as 6'6" in an Expedition with room to spare up front. The cargo area behind the seat is very large. The weight capacity should suit you as well at 450 lbs. Of course,...

You could do that. The reason for that pole is to create deck lift and a peaked deck for water shed. Without the pole. the kayak shape will just round around the front thwart. Either than that, you should be fine. I would recommend setting it up that way and going out for a short paddle to confirm a...

Vortex...really, you paddled the Ultralite with a DS floor in it? Could you provide some pics? We did extensive measurements and determined that you cannot properly fit a DS floor in the Ultralite. On the other hand, you can fit a backbone in there.

13' is a short boat for putting more than 2 people in it, even if it is a child. Secondly, all AE kayaks are Coast Guard certified for a maximum of 1 to 2 person/s depending on the model so we cannot advise using the kayak beyond the rated passenger capacity of 2 people.

Hello, Ok, here's some thoughts/suggestions for you: First, if you are experiencing a lot of flex, to the point of taco-ing, there's a chance that your kayak is under-inflated or the weight limit is being pushed. In really rough seas, you will experience the rolling motion of the swells under you bu...

Simplified set-up, more rigidity due to the drop-stitch air chambers, and a smoother more hydrodynamic outer skin are the improvements/advantages of the EVO. The "turning" and "drifting" problems that you have mentioned are in reference to the main air chambers being out of alignment. This misalignm...

Hi Serge, We chose to change from PVC Tarpaulin to PU Tarpaulin because PU is more supple so it smooths out better which creates a more hydrodynamic outer skin. Due to PU costing much more than PVC, the Elite will retain the use of PVC Tarpaulin in it's construction. We have not found the PU Tarpaul...

There is not force rating on the accessory frame but it was designed for your specified use. So, trolling is not an issue...unless you're going after sturgeon or something :wink: . Scotty also makes a mini downriggger that's perfect for trolling larger fish: http://scottypaddlesports.com/product/no-...
