    Anyone that knows me knows I have been riding a Fishcat and spoke up when asked which tube is best.
    I'm looking for any information that can help me with the purchase of a new one.
    Im a big guy 5'10 230.
    looks like Cumberland has the best weight capacity

    Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated

    You’ll really be in the dog house.

    I fished a classic accessories big horn for 2 years Straight on average 3 times a week. No issues, tons of room and capacity upto oor over 300. Can’t remember. I’d vouch for this tube all day long

    I'm 6'2 250 and use a cumberland and is perfect. I also have a Super Fat Cat just as comfortable.

    My 18 yo son is 6'6" 235 and has a Fish Cat 5 Max and loves it.

    I will say that you feel a little more "exposed" in the Cumberland, over the OutCast tubes.

    I’m 245 and the Super Fat Cat is a Cadillac and very durable. I load the heck out of it and the Paddle Drill makes good time for the long hauls. Can’t speak for Cumberlands but my last 3 tubes were Fat Cats and they last.

    I know. To be honest I ran into some money issues back then.
    I'm 100% ready now. I was thinking Cumberland because of the capacity and price but after reading toolbox post im not very sure lol
    Fisheromen, if you still have it let me know lol

    I do but now I plan on saving it for a spare. Grandsons are growing up fast!

    Fish Cats are a bit tougher, but if Costco carries the Cumberland online this year, I would not pass up that deal! Pretty sure I have had mine going on 8 years.
