Float tube help??
 
Little help, It is time to replace my old float tube (just an old cheap tube I got form my friend). My fly fishing buddy has an Outcast fat cat that I like. I have had my eye on the super fat cat. Was wondering if any of you guys have one and what you think about them.

I will only use it on small ponds and other places I don't want to take my hobbie.
I am 6' and about 165. I am really looking for the best option to be as high out of the water as possible and to have the most room. I do have a great pair of fins. Any help would be great.

I happen to almost have both of those models and I prefer the Super Fat Cat. Although they are both awesome and I got a really great deal on my Fish Cat and the Super Fat was a lot more money.

Here they are:

Here's Super Fat 400 and something a few years back. I like the inflatable seat but dont like inflating it. It packs up quite a bit better.

Cant go wrong either way, if you have the coin with no issue go with the Super.

I also have a Super Fat Cat, and I love it. The armrests can hold a lot of gear, and it's a very comfortable ride. The angle of the seat can be adjusted to suit your preference.

Inflating the seat requires a different fitting on your pump than the Halkey-Roberts valves on the two bladders. With a dual-pump, it inflates very quickly.

Of all of the Outcast tubes out there, this is the one I would recommend. You'll get years of use out of it. It is quite a bit beefier than the other Outcast offerings, so it should hold up better over time.
