I've used this for four seasons now without a problem. the only thing I can say bad about is that the nylon stretches out a little bit over time. Besides that it's really comfortable, and easy to set up. The best thing about it is you can take it anywhere.

GReat tube got it as a birthday present and used it a few times since. Only complaint is i wish it would allow you to sit a bit higher in it as i fly fish which makes it a bit difficult to cast.

it doesn't say it is a boat, it does exactly what it was made to do, i enjoy mine when i want to go to somewhere my boat cant be launched. Actually at some points enjoy it more than my boat because you are so much closer to water. When you fight a big fish you will be moved, maybe a few feet or maybe a couple hundred yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigManFloating Great way to fish
Bought this tube at a friends suggestion. And one time using it was all I need to be hooked. Great way to reach hard to get at spots, and very quiet in the water. Takes a little to get used to casting and setting a hook but it is a lot of fun. Though I would suggest that you upgrade the flippers, it will give you a little propulsion to get a round with. This is one of the best fishing investments I've made since I bought my boat! Now I am a big guy, 6'2" and almost 300 lbs. so the fit is a bit tight, but still very comfortable, especially after you get in the water and are floating.

If 14 pounds is too much for you to carry, try this: you can rig up a single wheel under it, to push it like a wheel barrow. I use a Woods sleeping bag tote to pack the Cat 4 deluxe, keeps it clean and neat.
The new trend seems to be a seat that is higher in the front on U-boats. This makes the user feel more secure but doesn't work for shorter people because it puts the front edge of the seat below the knee and their flippers stick up uselessly in the air!
Float Tubes may be used on lakes. Float tubes can once again be dangerous on large lakes in the event of high winds. Float tubes are not designed to "ride the waves" like a pontoon boat or an inflatable kayak is.
Float Tubes, while they can be used in rivers, are most definitely not recommended for river fishing. This is especially so if the river is fast moving, has rapids or has no current at all. Indeed, on fast moving rivers or where there are rapids, a float tube can be downright dangerous - especially if you are wearing waders.
not heavy, like maybe 15-25 lbs with all your gear in the pockets. It is a different story when you drag it out of the water though, more like 50 or 60 pounds. It does have holes to drain the water though.
