    Time for a new tube. Probably between a Cumberland or Fish Cat. Thoughts? Thanks.

    I've fished both. The cumberland is a little nicer in my opinion, but not by much. Is it worth the premium? Depends on what you can get each for and the difference.

    They are basically the same price.

    FYI, I have had both the Fish Cat 4 and the Super Fish Cat. The Super is definitely better, much more storage space.

    I do recommend replacing the seat cushion with a foam cushion (available from their site), the inflatable cushion eventually leaks. Can also stuff the seat cushion pocket with pool noodle pieces instead.

    There are times when the Cumberland can be bought for $140 through Costco. Never seen a Fish Cat for that price. I have had my Cumberland for at least 8 years. It is faded and I have had to fix the zippers. One bladder leak due to my own negligence. I put a crankbait in the storage compartment, naked.

    Edit: Evidently that Costco deal is long gone! Too bad, sweet deal!
