I sure like those.
Looks like 130% scaled up version of a floattube with the addition of oars.

Very nice and functional, especially the rod holder.

Ya did you see the hard tackle box on the side of the tube, interesting. I am sure it is comfortable as well. The cross bar has a foot rest that is adjustable for your needs, and the Rod Rack seems pretty functional. I like that they went with a minimalist look. Lots of boat and a few add on's to make it work.

I really like the addition of oars as this increases range and power. Interesting to see if it works well on the one that has the round shape just like a typical float tube and not the tapered one.

So Flight Boats wants to sell there Kick Boats here in the U.S. the problems are this shipping is close to $200. Also there 2 boats while great boats are $700 to $1100 each. I am thinking it might be time for the FTFF to start selling its own tubes and this is an option. What do you guys think, he has offered for me to buy there float tubes at cost for 1 or both as a sample before. Cost would be great but the $200 shipping still is a tough pill to swallow.
If I decide to step up and sell float tubes, I would like to sell some of those items you cannot find here. I don't want to sell what is already out there you know what I mean.

My 2 cents,

Tubes that cost more than $300 are a rare sight on the water.  I think we should find out why that is. Storage issues and other options like small boats come to mind for me. Once we get to needing a trailer a lot of other options are out there. I see more Colorado's, $650,  on trailers than in the back of pick ups or cars. 

One example is the Supreme, it is 235 cm long by 142 cm wide is nearly 8 feet long by 4 1/2 feet wide. I would love it. How small does this break down and what is the set up time? Would I be better off to trailer it in?

Once we hit $800 dollars or more we are into aluminum boat territory.

Those prices are too high for my blood. Once float tubes get over 300-500 total I can't justify it as much as a kayak or boat, etc...

FWIW, my situation requires something I can fit in a closet when I'm not using it, so hard boats are out for me.

When it comes to inflatables, the Sea Eagle, which can take a motor, is in the $1000 range, so at that price point, I'm gonna need to be out of the water and have a motor mount.

Thanks for the information everyone, I think that the pricing is the sticking point in most of these float tubes / kick boats. But I wonder being that the higher priced tubes come with oar's and the ability to attach trolling motors, would that be seen as a positive.

I know that most would say that if they are spending a $100 they are going to get a kayak or a a small aluminum boat. But if the high end float tube had just as much to offer as a kayak (not a boat that is in a different class) would it be an option over the kayak.

I believe the tubes we use here in the U.S. are great tubes, but there is not much else then what we have. With Seven Bass launching here and other companies reaching out to us from other Countries would our opinions change in time. Please keep your thoughts coming thanks very much.

tubing in korea is huge.. i see a bunch of these flight tubes over here.. most tubes over here are a lot bigger than say a cumberland size.. very spacious, fast and comfortable to fish from. im able to cover water so much more efficiently. i keep mine which is actually bigger than these flights in the trunk of my car at all times.. fits in its own bag and the oars are 2 piece so break down.. theres a ton of different tubes we have over here.. and most brands have different sized models.. ill be fishing a club tournament this weekend and will take pics of the style of tubes we have over here.. will probably have over 20 different models..
