AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak  Pros and Cons

Pros

Nearly every AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak review praised the product. For an entry-level kayaker to an experienced kayaking community member this Kayak has a lot to offer that its expensive hard-shell cousins cannot. This Kayak is very affordable, versatile and durable.

The company Advanced Elements, which makes this Kayak, is a great company with lots of support.

Cons

This Kayak cannot match its hard-shell cousins in the rougher waters and is really only suitable for the calm lakes and oceanfronts. It would be incredibly dangerous to use this Kayak on anything rougher than a class two river.

The tracking of this Kayak as well cannot match that of hard shell kayaks. Weight wise its limit is 300 pounds, which limits who can use it.

Kayak Reviews Final Thoughts on the AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak

The reviews for the Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Kayak are nothing but good with an average of 4.5 stars. There are many additions a kayaker can make to the Kayak and Advanced Elements itself has a great record in the Kayaking industry with stellar reviews.

I would rank this a strong buy for a variety of paddlers out there looking to get wet in the water sports world. This is an extremely versatile kayak, which will support children and young kayakers as well as older kayakers.

The AdvancedFrame Kayak is definitely a high quality kayak as this review recommends its purchase.

How to Buy a Fishing Rod

Tips on How to Buy a Fishing Rod & Reel

Buying a fishing rod and reel may at first seem a very simple and straight forward process. For the most part, this is the case; however, there are many options and factors available for an individual seeking to purchase a new outfit. One of the biggest considerations may often times involve price. But taking time to determine exactly what is needed and how you will be using the new equipment before heading out to make a purchase can, in the long run, save a potentially large amount of money.

At one time, it was much simpler to choose a fishing pole than it is today. Few choices were available, something that is not true now with the advent of a huge assortment of fishing rods for specific purposes. The best way for you to be able to pinpoint which fishing rod will suit your needs is to do so based on the type of fishing you engage in the most

Here are a few options to consider for inshore, near shore and flats fishing.

Fishing rod:

  • Choose the length of spinning rod. Six to seven foot rods are suited for artificial and live bait casting. They are able to catch fish such as snook, redfish, trout and other inshore flats fish that may visit the bays and back waters. This size rod allows for long casting distances if needed.
  • Test the grip of the rod. Make sure the handle fits snugly in your palm. Is it too heavy or to light for your type of fishing? Remember, you might be casting a lot during the day.
  • Test for flexibility. Hold the spinning rod in your hand as if you are casting, flip the end, and watch the tip for movement. You want some flexibility and sensitivity at the end of the rod.
  • Decide what you are willing to pay for a fishing pole. You get what you pay for in a rod. Expensive poles will last longer and perform better than inexpensive ones.
How to Buy a Fishing Rod

Reel for fishing rod:

Again, the most important factor to consider is what type of fishing best describes you. There are so many brands of spinning reels on the market today that it would be wise to seek out the top known brands.

  • The reel should be light/medium weight and be able to hold 200 to 250 yards of 15lb. to 25lb. test lines. I use the braded lines for my reels.
  • Make sure they are salt water reels as they will withstand our harsh environment a lot better than fresh water equipment. Mid-price range would be $90 to $175.
  • Once you decide on the right spinning reel, set it up on the rod in the store. Fill the weight and balance of the combo rod and reel together. The reel should not fill heavy on the rod you chose.
  • Remember to flush off your equipment with fresh water after every trip in salt water. Salt water can leave corrosive elements that can destroy even the most expensive gear.

Most sporting goods and tackle stores have experts to help you choose the rod and reel for your type of fishing. Have an idea of how often you’re going to fish, what type of fish you want to catch, where you’ll be fishing and how much you want to spend. Their fishing knowledge will make your selection more satisfying.
