Welcome to the boards! You will have a blast fishing from a tube.

Personally I have never fished from that tube so can't help you there. If you let us know your budget, someone here might be able to suggest a good tube within your price range

the hot deal is the Cumberland.

On the first page is a link to CoverUp Bonanza, and they have a good price, and there is a 15% off discount if you are on this forum.
There might be a minimum number of posts you need before you can get the discount? I'm not sure.. you can ask JeffCPR about that.
I have the cumberland, and it is awesome. It does ride up a bit higher out of the water, so if you or your gf are tiny or short-legs,
that might be an issue. It's the perfect tube for big dudes like me.

Oh... and WELCOME. Another 562'er.. Thumbs Up

At that price you will be able to get both cumberlands shipped to your house and still have money left over for an air pump!

Check out [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I would suggest the cumberland, I really like that one. My brother has that one, but i have the ODC420 which is also nice.

Welcome aboard and you two are going
to LOVE Float Tubing!! The guys here won't steer you wrong either and they will help you get the best bang for your buck!! The Cumberland and the ODC420 are both awesome tubes in the
same price range. And these companys
are both sponsers of this forum so it'e great to do business with them.
Cover Bonanza and Creek Company. Just
look at their banners on both sides of this page (sometime you have to scroll down a bit) Always try to keep in mind there will be several accesories
you will need too along with your tube like a pump,fins,waders for colder water,building a custom rod holder,etc.etc.etc. but it's all worth it!! Anyway,keep us posted as to what you decide and when you get out on the water we all love to read your "reports" as we call them. Oh,by the way,I went with the ODC420 and don't regret it one bit! I paid $179 including $20.00 for shipping.

Welcome to the forum glad you found us hope you learn a lot from these guys because they are very willing to share. The Cumberland is a great tube and the cost is outstanding as well through Cover Bonanza. As for the TOGIAK I had 2 of them I was very happy with them both, but they do take a beating and it is true you get what you paid for. Cover Bonanza has both of those tubes, if it were me I would do the Cumberland not because the TOGIAK was not worth the money but because the cumberland is a top notch tube over all.

it's not optional. and it's unwise to not have one.
Many (all) will have the PFD clipped onto their tube.

Also, I believe.. that in some areas (LBC and the LAB??), it might be required to have some kind of floatation device.
I've read somewhere that even stand-up paddle boarders need to have something. They sell fanny packs that have
CO2 cartridge activated floatation devices.

Regardless of the law.. you should have one nearby.
