I've got a blue FishCat that I received new in Feb 2012 that I have used quite a bit at first, but has been in my garage partially inflated for the past year, maybe longer.  How long do the bladders normally last? Is it safe to fully inflate and use?

I guess you posted this on FNN as well... you're good Komori - the FishCat has a five year warranty, so you're still actually in warranty. I wouldn't expect any issues at all.

It looks like you are going to be the expert here on longevity.
 My old style Browning "tube" used the rubber inner tubes from trucks. It seemed those tubes would go bad in 5 or 6 years. I have no idea on the new  Polyurethane or vinyl bladders last, but they are easier to find than inner tubes now.

I have an odc420 from 2004ish? Stored indoors out of the sun but fully delfated and folded up. Still holds air like a champ.

Wow Kin! I think you may have the record. That's about 13 years!

I've got a Woodriver stealth rider that I got in 1997. Wife uses it every once in a while. Still going strong.
