So, I had been using my vintage JW Outfitters tube for the past 20+ years. I love that tube. Anyway, I decided it was time for an upgrade, and I bought Prowler last year. Wow, what a difference. Very stable, glides through the water, and I'm sitting up a lot higher. This thing is a dream!! One of my best fly fishing purchases by far!!!!! Plenty of storage in the side pockets and even behind the seat. Fills quickly with a double action hand pump. I can't wait to get back out on the water with this!!
