    Looks like I need something a little lighter than my pontoon for some super secret walk in areas? I guess I am looking for a U boat or preferrably a super fat cat or fat cat?? Drop me a line if you have anything. I would like something that keeps your butt out of the water a little????

    10% Off Online Sale on Float Tubes

    Right now, there is an online sale on the Trout Unlimited Togiak, as well as float tubes in general. All float tubes are 10% off. The Togiak is rated at supporting 350 lbs--the same as the Super Fat Cat--and normally retails between $139.95 and $145.00--the same as the Fish Cat. It also is one of those designs that keeps your butt out of the water. After the 10% reduction, you're paying about $126.00. Shipping is an additional $10.56. Still, at $136.56, it's the best deal on this kind of a float tube.

    There are tons of sites offering this sale, but you can access them all by doing a search for "float tubes" via Bizrate.com. I stumbled across this yesterday. I'm thinking of going this route myself. I've never seen the Togiak at this low of price.

    FISH CAT 4 139.00 at Cabelas or at your local fine Fly Shops...

    Or if you can find WW Griggs version of the FISH CAT 4 that sells for 92.00, this would be even BETTER.
    The WW GRIGGS has: duel PVC BLADDERS as oppose to Vinyl, behind the seat back brace bar,Identical durable nylon shell construction,crotch-seat snap to front bar brace,AIR Seat,AIR Backrest, and did I mention ALL this for only 92.00?
    I bought this from Sportco in Fife, not sure if any other stores carry this tube, did a Google search and couldn't find anywhere. I believe the Griggs Tube just came out couple month ago.
    Penny for penny IMO nothing touches this Float Tube, and I've done alot a research before finding this for my wife.
    If you have a bottomless wallet, buy Outcasts new version of the FAT CAT, its a work of art and nothing touches it regardless of price. I bought my FAT CAT couple years ago and it works awesome and built like a tank!
    I've learned a lesson to NEVER buy a float tube with VINYL bladders again, I've had 2 blow up on me in the middle of a lake. Don't compromise safety! Go Latex Urethane(BEST) or PVC bladders, and for extra safety wear some type of PFD, I wear the SOS PFD, it sooo comfortable!

    Good Luck!

    I used to know it all---but now I forgot it all.

    I have one of those float tubes and would be willing to part with it if the price was right. The Togiak,it's the tube that I made a ass out of myself at Dry Falls. I've only had it out once more and I am not too happy with it. Being that I'm on the big side of 250 it really didn't serve my purpose.

    Hey Jim--What went wrong with the Togiak at Dry Falls? It looks like I jumped the gun and ordered one before SkyCrys posted info and prices on the W.W. Grigg. At this point, I'm wondering how hard to kick myself for what I've done.

    I just answered this and hit the wrong button. So I will do it again. There is nothing wrong with the tube it was all just me. Just a little too big. But it is a doable for me if I could just remember what I have to do to make it work for me. Would highly recommend it for anybody.

    Jim
