Drop Stitch Floor

Post by Bavarian » Fri Apr 21, 2017 6:44 am

Hey guys,

i have just read on the AE HP about the new Straitedge Angler Pro.

It comes with a Drop Stitch Floor.

So are you working on a Drop Stitch floor for the STRAITEDGEâ„¢ANGLER: AE1006-ANG as a replacement too?

I bought my Straitedge last year and now i see there is a new one with a drop stitch floor
:x

So it would be great if there is a chance to replace the floor for the older models.

Maybe you have happy news?

Thanks

Martin

Martin,

Thank you for reaching out with your question.
At this point, a DropStitched floor is not in the works for the other StraitEdge models.
The AE1006-Y, AE1006-ANG and AE1014-Y all have pockets welded to the bottom of the kayak which hold their inflatable bladders inside.
If you were to attempt to add a DropStitched floor the pocket material would be in the way of placing the floor over it. If you tried to put it inside the pocket, the pocket is not long enough for the DropStitched floor and there would be extra material because the DropStitch is thinner than the inflatable bladder.
The AE1055 Angler Pro is a beefed up version of the AE1006-ANG. It comes with two mounting rails and the kayak is longer.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post here or you can reach out directly to customer service.

Hi,

thanks for your answer.
I allready thought about that fact. :(

But no problem, the kayak ist doing fine even without the drop stitch floor.

Best regards

Martin
