Does anyone here have any experience with the Buffalo Open-Front Float Tube? I have an opportunity to buy a couple at what I consider a LOW LOW price... but am wondering WHY such a LOW LOW price????¸

Has anyone ever owned one of these : http://img.shopping.com/images1/di/71/4e/57/75/46/776e374b4941724d6b6a75396d654f4977-100x100.jpg

In your experience what is the best buy out there in terms of quality/price...

I want to buy my hubby a tube for his bday but am at a loss as to which to buy. (and one for me too... so we can go together)

What do I need to consider - price of course - but what else!?

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum Victoria

The product seems to be commonly offered among many storefronts so it's probably not a fly-by-night item. Could be a great deal afterall but you know what they say about too-good-to-be-trues.

Having your spouse pick up a couple of float tubes to fish together... now that's priceless!

Thanks for the reply Juro.

So you have seen these tubes before. I can't seem to find who manufacture's them... weird. I was hoping to be able to get more info before spending the money... sure it is not that I am spending thousands... but hey I don't want to have my hubby sinking in mid cast! I would have liked to hear from someone that has used the tube and that is satisfied with it. Here in Québec I haven't seen this brand before.
