    so the wife shot down me buying a boat. lol. so I'm looking into tubing and came across the Classic Accessories Bighorn Float Tube. good pricing and features from what I can tell. does anyone have experience with this tube? pros and cons.
    also I'm not the smallest guy 6'1 235lbs.
    thanks

    Never used it, but from the pictures it looks like the seat is the sling type. If I were you I would spend a few more bucks and get the Cumberland. Having a padded seat makes all the difference.

    I'm a big guy and I have a fishcat deluxe. Never gave me issues and I can be on the water for hours and be comfortable.

    I purchased my waders at Turner's, they were the hodgman Pipestone breathable stocking foot waders. I would recommend them. Super comfortable, think I paid a little over 100.00 for them.

    Maybe Im a little late to the party but I have used the Bighorn float tube and I really liked it...That being said I did buy a Cumberland not to long ago only for the fact that it was a little more stealthier than the bighorn. What I liked about the bighorn is the high back but I like sitting up out of the water more which the Cumberland does for me

    a side note ..if you go with a classic accessories they stand behind their product 110% ..Im mean even if its the slightest thing like say a pocket zipper broke they will replace the whole tube no questions asked.
