: Aire or NRS tubes?

Hey folks -

I've been a lurker on here for a while, but I'm getting ready to buy a cataraft. I'm thinking a 13' or 14', probably with a NRS Alley Cat Frame Option A with a cooler seat in the back. Would appreciate your advice on the tube brand.

Thanks all,

I float the New, James and Toe rivers in North Carolina and Virginia for smallmouth and trout. Work at bass pro Shop on a part time basis I have been using jack's Plastic Welding for sometime; his service and the quality of his product are super. Check it out:

Surf around the site. They provide an excellent reference to the different tubes, their construtoin and the plus' or minus' of each.

Aire or NRS are both good.

I recommend you go to and check out their forums. Their hunting forum and their boating forum have many, many threads on tubes, manufacturers and types of material. Lots on there to consider.
