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-...

Really easy to add the Accessory Frame System to your kayak and it would definitely do the job with mounting a GoPro. You actually do not need to cut holes in your AdvancedFrame to set up the Accessory Frame, it's just an option for a cleaner looking install. You can set it up on your kayak one of t...

Hey mitsman, I'll try to address most of your questions and insights here. So, the Angler and Angler PRO for the most part paddle the same. They are both sit-on-tops which makes them slower in the water than a sit-inside like our AdvancedFrames. Kayak length and width affect paddling speed so, while...

Really, using both together is a redundancy. The backbone and the Dropstitch floor provide essentially the same result in terms of performance of the kayak...almost neck and neck. Really, the defining difference between the two, aside from price point, is that the backbone has the slight edge on tra...

Hey rjf, Try taking a look inside the pole that has the push button. In there, you'll see the spring mechanism that supports the push button. If you use a small set of needlenose pliers, you can reach in and adjust this spring a bit to straighten out the alignment of the push button in the hole that...

Actually, seam splits are nearly impossible to effectively repair. When they're on the seam like that, since there is a small gap between the tube material and the weld, those splits like to run. Also, from the looks of your pics, it looks like you are using PVC tarpaulin patches instead of un-reinf...

The conversion decks simply add a covered, cockpitted position to the kayak for protection from the elements. They do not add any rigidity whatsoever to the kayak.

Hey Zak, Ok, so I saw the video, as well as the others that you posted to Youtube of the kayak fully inflated and being paddled out on the water. It looks like the boat is setting up perfectly and it looks really great on the water! It should be noted that the Velcro is not meant to be a component o...

Watched the video and have to say that it's too hard to tell exactly what's going on because you never fully inflate the kayak. Since all of the kayaks are hand made, the Velcro does not always fully line up even, edge to edge. This is why the Velcro strips are so large, so that they can align on th...

Your situation definitely sounds out of the norm. The inflation order would not affect things, only pressure does that. It's hard to know what's going on without pictures. Please contact customer service at info@advancedelements.com with some pics so that we can help you out.

No reason at all. There's a guy in Gilroy, CA who did a 30+ day, 1,500 mile trip down the Yukon river in his AdvancedFrame Convertible with single deck conversion.
