Yeah, due to the floor now being a rock hard platform, with no give to it, your feet will sit up higher, although not by much. With that said, I have size 11.5 feet and do not have any issues with that setup in the Expedition so here's some suggestions: (1) Take your shoes off if you're not doing th...

Not sure either way on finding a used one. I have not really seen any go up used, but I don't know. AE does not "clear out" end of the year stock/models and they don't sell direct anyways, so any discount/deals would be through a dealer. The only time you'd find a "closeout" item so to speak is on A...

I think that you'll fit just fine. You might find it a little tight...maybe, but I don't think so. You will want the Elite though. The original AirFusion will be too small for you. The Fusion Elite does behave very similarly to a hard-shell, but you will notice better stability. The gear you are des...

The Elite would be fine for your foot size...you'll have to take your shoes off though. As a matter of fact, if you're not doing that already in your AF Ex, give it a try there too. Jcooley paddles both the AF Ex and Fusion Elite in races with size 13's and does not have problems. The Fusion Elite i...

The KayakPack is the same exact size as the duffel bag for the AE1007 AdvancedFrame Convertible, so it will most certainly fit. Actually, every one of our kayak models fit within the AE3011 Kayak Pack.

To add more stability for standing, you could also get Scotty's No. 302 Kayak Stabilizers and a set of No. 242 Rail Mount Adapters and set it all up on the "arm" parts of the Accessory Frame on the Angler. Here's Scotty's web link:

Hi Salas, A few answers to your questions: The front thwart shifts less, or not at all, during the inflation process because of its size. Pole #4 probably helps somewhat with this as well. It's approx double the size of the rear thwart, so its covering more surface area along the main chambers which...

Could you maybe show some pictures of your Husband's setup...how he's sitting in the kayak? The seat for this model is a high-back, so it should not be coming up short unless its sliding under him as he gets in. Also, my dad is 6'6" and has paddled this model with no issues, so it would be helpful t...

The twist valves are replaceable. With that said, they do not often go "bad" so it might be that the valve needs to be re-seated on its base. To do this, twist open the valve (Yellow portion) until its all the way open. Then grasp the tubing that the valve is attached to and press the yellow valve p...

In all honesty, unless you somehow smash the "newer" AE Spring Valve, there is no need to ever replace them. The Spring Valve is pretty bomb proof. I've got an '08 AFC and the valve is still like new. Glad you found a solution though!

This older style valve is a two piece "sandwich" design. That means that there is a bottom portion that is inside of the tube and then a top portion which is outside of the tube. The top portion threads into the bottom portion and sandwiches the tube material within it, creating a seal. Over many ye...

You want a paddle at least 230cm in length to accommodate the width of the kayak. A 4-part paddle would be nice too as it can then pack down inside the bag with the kayak.
