1 New tubes on the market on Tue Jan 16, 2018 1:25 pm

So some of you might know Seven Bass originally from France is now selling some of their products here in the U.S.  Well yesterday I received in the mail 3 of the 6 they have for sale here now.  I have been tasked with testing, reviewing and demonstrating these tubes 2 will be tested on the water one is for viewing only (I will explain later).  

So far I have opened and inflated 2 of the 3 and must say the quality of this product at first glance is very high.  I have done nothing more than doing a quick open box video of the 3 tubes but will be working on more very soon.  As for now I will be doing some studying of the products and trying to figure out can we add rock racks and fish finder mounts on them.  I will soon be heading out to the water for some test runs and since there are 2 that will hit the water I will need some individuals to come along and test drive with me.

Here are a few pictures of the new tubes I have been working on.  More info will becoming your way soon.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The biggest issues I am seeing so far are a follows:

1. The flatform is heavy
2. the Explorer is narrow
3. For both adding rod racks might not work with what we have out here.

This is just my initial thoughts, but I have only inflated them I have not had much time to look them over yet and try to brainstorm ideas. Some time on the water will hopefully start the brainstorming process. Please guys ask questions and lets grow this thread.

The CASTMATE seems like a great fit for the Explorer. And it looks like the Explorer was made to accept something on those loops.

The Flatform looks like a good ol fashion milk-crate would fit behind the seat. Like the kayak guys do.

I can say the Grey one (Explorer) is very well built and pretty lightweight I will be taking out the Flatform this weekend, but the Explorer will head out soon as well for some test runs.

Yes the Clip line will work I think but there are no D-rings on the side like all our other tubes. Once I have some time I will try to set it up at home and take some shots. The flatform will not work but I have a good idea.

Made it out today with GT for a test run and the wind was blowing. Probably not the best day for a test run but we went. Quick info they are quality products. I rode the flatform and i was amazed in its ability to move. GT was in the Explorer his ride was mixed. Light weight well built moves fast just a little to narrow. I will be sure to post a complete review very soon.
