If you know what limits for RF and FF please post that too.

I wanna say the diono rxt or whatever damn inititals it is has one of the highest edi limits and ffing limits with a harness. I think that's what I might get with this one once she's out of the carrier.

This I just bought two diono rxt's has the highest RF limits (45 lbs and I wanna say 44 inches) Then it FF until 80lbs and then goes into a booster until 120lbs.

I don't know if it's the best, but I have the Graco Myride 65. It RF to 40, FF to 65. It's squishy, and DS likes it...Downside is it's really bulky RFing, so I would take that into consideration. DH is 6'3" so he can't drive my car cuz the seat is too big for him to move the seat back enough, lol. We are getting a van soon, which I'm hoping will help

Great seat and comfy but our only complaint was once dd was older it was too reclined for her liking. She was 3 and couldn't see out the window :(

It does recline really far! That's DH's issue with not being able to drive my car. I don't know how long I will RF DS, so I'll have to see if he'll have that issue

Have you put the foam thing under it? I know it gave me a few extra inches to work with with RF

I think she's talking about the MR.
You can't use an angle adjuster with the MR, only Radians.

We bought the True Fit Convertible when Addison turned 1 and RF her in that seat until she turned 3, then put her FF in a Nautilus. She can still use the True Fit FF as a spare seat. The seat we bought lasts till Dec 2015, so in a couple months, we're gonna buy a boy cover for it from the manufacturer and use it for Asher. Unless he outgrows it by weight or height first, he'll be able to RF in it until it expires.
