I have owned my Trinity floats tube for three years and I am very satisfied with it. On average I use my Trinity twenty times per year. Originally it was intended for alpine lake fishing, but it now my go to float tube. My Fat Cat has recently been sold after sitting idle in the garage for two years.
When I first received the Trinity my initial impression was it would not last one season with my usage, but it is amazingly rugged and going strong three years later. The Trinity is more agile and cuts thru the water better than my Fat Cat and is a very stable fishing platform. I was once caught in a squall with whitecaps breaking over the bow. The fish were biting so I rode it out never feeling in any danger.
After the Cascade Mountain lakes thaw I hike in with the Trinity to fish them. So far the longest one day round trip was seven miles and a full day of fishing. Carrying the Trinity in my pack along with fly rod, fins, waders and accessories is very doable. Following each fishing trip I hose off the Trinity, thoroughly dry it, then fold it up and store in the bag it came in. So far I have not had one issue with its construction. The Trinity along with my Mini K-Pump travels the Pacific Northwest.
One day I finally talked my wife into testing the Trinity and she fell in love with it. Now she too is a Trinity owner going on two years. Over the years I have made two minor modifications to the Trinities. First I added a piece of half inch PEX tubing to the front of the stripping basket to hold it fully open. Since I do not fully inflate the seat bottom the bladders roll in slightly collapsing the stripping basket. I have also managed to loose the air valve caps used to deflate the air bladders, so I made deflators to replace them. It is much faster than using my fingers to depress the air valve. The deflator consists of a piece of 5/8 inch tubing into which a 12 cc syringe (minus plunger) is inserted. The deflator is slid onto the valve stem until the syringe tip depresses the air valve and air flows out of the bladder. To accelerate deflation I opened up the inside diameter of the syringe tip using a drill. I carry four deflators per Trinity to make deflation a quick process.
When on looks at the multitude of options available to the fisherman and understands their limitations (i.e.: you are not going to cover a lot of water) the Trinity shines as a Stillwater fishing tool. For its weight, portability, mobility and durability the Trinity can not be Beat!
