Hello guys. I'm in the process of getting into float fishing for the first time and I'd like some of your opinions.

I can't decide on what tube to buy. I have it narrowed down between 2 tubes, the Fish Cat 4 and the Cumberland.
If anyone has expireance with these tubes I'd like to hear your pros and cons of each. I'd like to decide on a tube soon so I know what tube to ask "Santa" for.

Thanks in advance for all your input, and I cant wait to get out on the waters.

Dex

Welcome to the forum you've found the right place for info and opinions on what works for almost all bodies of water. I personally have the Cumberland tube and to be honest I have no complaints about it at all. I can fish for about 8 hrs with no discomfort except for the occasional restroom break still haven't figured out that situation.

Welcome Dex ,

If you do a search on the forums you will see many reviews on both those tubes and even comparisons . You will find that there is a Mini Army here of Cumberland owners as they offer a lot of room and fit the larger guys very well .

Welcome Dex, I grew up in the East Bay, Union City. And worked at the Fishing Dept at Tri-City Sporting Goods before they closed.

My stomping grounds was San Pablo Reservior and Del Valle (where I caught my pb trout). I cant help you much with a float tube, as I dont have one. Just get a toon! lol

Dex, two great choices!

I think the FC 4 is better built and better looking than the Cumberland as I really like the PVC on the ends. The Cumberland is a little bigger in size and storage area than the FC 4. I weigh 200 pounds even and the Cumberland floats me great, but if you weigh 175 or less the FC 4 will float you as well.  End the end I chose the the Cumberland because I got such a great deal from Cover Bonanza, it was  $185 then.

If I weighed 170 pounds, and price was not an issue, I would buy a FC 4 and scale down the amount of crap I bring. If price was not an issue I would buy the Fat Cat truthfully.

I will add that the customer service from Classic Accessories is second to no one.

Welcome to the forum Dex, well as for myself I own a OUTCAST SUPER FAT CAT Cadillac of float tubes. In my opinion comfort is priority with its weight capacity. When I fish freshwater, I'm in my float tube up to 10 hours. There are many float tube companies out there, I suggest to look for these features ....

weight load capacity..
comfort..
storage bags..
cup holders..
thickness of float tube..

What ever float tube you decide to go with I wish you luck.
