I am currently saving up money to buy a float tube. I had been looking only at brands that are manufactured here in the U.S. (Classic Accessories, Creek Co., Outcast); not necessarily because they were U.S.-made, but because they are the ones that come up when you Google "float tube" or search the topic on forums.
I have recently learned, however, that a French company called Seven Bass Design is going to start selling their float tubes in the U.S. in the next couple of months. You can download their catalog at www.clee-fishing.com/marques/3-seven-bass The catalog is in French, so you have to copy/paste the product descriptions into Google Translate to read them in English. They also have a Facebook page which can be found by going to Facebook and searching "Seven Bass Design USA".
I have no affiliation with this company, and I most assuredly am not looking to start a debate about buying American-made vs. foreign-made gear. I am simply interested in these float tubes, and I wondered if anyone here had heard of them and/or knew anything about them, good or bad.
