Hi guys, Enrico here from Italy.I hope that you're doing well.Your site is very nice full of infos and your movie is great!

I'd like to buy the following tube: Buck's Bags High Adventure Float Tube. I read that it comes with a sort of "seat frame" so the angler can seat highter on the water.What do you think about?Are the pockets large for all our baits?Which typology of valves it has(i mean roberts,boston..)?
Let me know!Have a great bass time!
Enrico

Hi Enrico,I almost bought the high adventurer but after doing some research it was in my best interest to get the next one up which is the southfork model.The southfork has more durable bladders for the pontoons and has a stainless steel frame as opposed to the powder coated steel frame the adventurer has.Surprisingly enough this boat with the stainless frame is lighter than alot of the aluminum framed pontoon boats out there.I think Binh just ordered the high adventurer he may have more info to consider,hopefully he see`s this and responds.gl and good fishing to ya.

Bihn should be getting his High adventure some time this week as Bucksbag had a problem with they're powder coater. Im sure he will give you the first hand update on the High adventure. For a little extra $$$ the Southfork is a lot higher quality. If you are interested Enrico, I might be able to save you some $$ on your order. The bad thing is that you might pay more for shipping as it will be imported from here. Let me know what boat you would like to buy and I can look into it for you.

Hey guys, yeah I just got noticed that the bag is at UPS for pickup. I'm gonna try to pick it up tomorrow. As for why I pick the high adventure. Well for one, I already have a bronco which is the same as the southfork. only difference is that the bronco gives you the option of a double bladder for each tube. Believe me, it saved my life one time when if fell off the truck. lucky for me, a little duck tape and one bladder was all I neeeded to fish and took second at my very first Invitational.
As for the reason why the high adventure, I bought it for my wife. She don't mind tubing but didn't like the fishcat. So I figured buy a pontoon but not spend a lot of money. I have always trust bucks and their customer service is awsome. When heard of the great deal I jump on it. I got the 7 footer which is about 27 pounds. I figure I can use it when she not, when I want to carry it a distance to put. However, that's why i got the wheel for the bronco. Well, as you can see i think I have a pontoon for all occassion. Anyway hope this help.
Binh

Guys you are always very kind in your answer but maybe i did not explain me well.The tube that i'd like to buy is a float tube and not a kickboat.Here it is:

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat20431&id=0036670319399a&navCount=1&podId=0036670&parentId=cat360010&navAction=push&catalogCode=IG&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat360010&hasJS=true

Like you can see the seat appears higher( steel seat) than the comparison ones and maybe you can pich better.What do you think about?
Rick i know that you are a GURU of Buck's Bag so i am waiting for your advice as well!

To Rick: when will we organize an intercontinental tourney between our guys???

Thanks for your answer, greetings from Italy!!
Enrico

i don't know much about the highlander.But i do own a bucks bag "bullet" float tube with the steel frame.it's a great float tube.It does sit you higher,it has the steel frame,no cross bar and very wide in the front for easy access and exit.It is a very sturdy tube and i love it.the pockets wont fit alot of tackle but enough to catch you some "BASS" its definitely a nice upgrade from the"old"style float tube.Hope this helps!!

Yoe Enrico
The bullet is the ticket in U-Boats. You sit much higher then you would in a round tube. Matt won his at our Invitational tournament last year. Thats the only time I have seen one up close. Its a very high quality float tube with a great waranty. If your interested I can save you a lot of $$$$$$ and shipping will only be around $60.00. Just send me a e-mail and we'll set you up.

Rich
