    Toons are made by JPW and frames are made in Lyons, OR iirc. I've never heard anything negative about his products.

    During my research, I concluded they made a pretty good product. They don't make a breakdown frame and I'm not a huge fan of JP but I think they put together a decent packaged deal.

    They are known more for their whitewater products so they have more of a curve to their tubes. As a fisherman first, I prefer a longer waterline as opposed to the "dutch shoe" curve of JP.

    We had two of Bruce's boats and we put them through the paces. Nothing but good things to say about them. The tubes were JP's, making Water Ready! one of the last companies to use American made tubes.

    Bruce is a heck of a guy.

    Thanks, It appears alot of the tubes are made in Asia, I'm guessing it's a labor thing like all the other products are manufacturers outsource or move over seas.

    I'm not real familiar with tube design being from the midwest so this helps a bit.
