The 3.3 AE is the little brother of the 5.3 AE without the outrageous price.
The 3.3 is built on the same platform as its big brothers but with a lower flywheel weight. The resistance settings seem less consistent and linear when increasing work load up through the levels. The ellipse motion is familiar and the back end support on all AFG products is competent. One could find many of the AFG products at Dick?s sporting goods this shopping season.
