The AFG 3.0 AE is scraping the bottom of the AFG barrel in our opinion. We would suggest that you try another model if you want to buy an AFG.
The AFG 3.0 AE is the worst rated AFG we reviewed this year. Very similar to the 2.0 AE, but with the inclusion of a power incline feature and a $300 increase in price. If the 2.0 AE was barely adequate at its price the extra $300 makes this less so, especially since the incline feature's design is not as useful as you will find on other brands.
