    FOONF

    As I'm searching through FOONF, I've come across several people expressing concern over lack of leg room RFing. Is this a concern? For those who have been lucky enough to have played with it, is there more or less leg room than the RN's. Or are you just gaining height?

    Also witch has better leg support FFing?

    And what dose the FOONF have over the RN FFing?

    I'm still struggling on witch seat I want. I want 3 across friendly, RF till 3-4. The longer I'm on this board, the age I intend to RF goes up, lol. I have RN's and like them, but would like to have a seat that could FF longer. I really don't want another FR85 down the road because of the width.

    I was going to order a RN in Trekk or Daytona, but I'm not sure. Plus I like the snowberry and dragon fly. I'll be buying 1 for a boy, and 1 for a girl. If there was a Aqua Blue cover I'd be all over It!!!

    Thanks Kelly

    Re: FOONF

    I haven't been lucky enough to play with a Foonf yet, but I do own a radian. I don't love the radian It's okay, just not my fave and by what I've seen of the foonf I'd much rather have one of those. FFing the Foonf has the honeycomb technology or whatever they call it to disperse crash forces. The Radian does have the safestop, but it's only for those under 40lbs ffing. I don't remember the highest slot height of foonf, but it seems like they were similar.

    I haven't compared them side-by-side, but I own a Radian and have played with a foonf.

    The more upright a rear-facing seat is, the less legroom it will generally have. The Radian gives a lot of legroom but tends to be very reclined. The foonf sits more upright and doesn't have as much.

    The foonf reminded me of the Orbit Toddler seat in that regard. That one also sits very upright and has less legroom than the Radian. My three-year-old, though, didn't mind one bit.
