who made tubes for fishcraft?

Hi I'm getting ready to go look at some used fishcraft tubes all the research I've done says they are made from 2200 denier fabric and that they have c7 valves and urethane undercoating. Are these tubes any good?

Sorry I deleted my previous message. I just woke up and not fully to my senses and had mistaken Fishcraft with Flycraft.

What are the first few letters of the serial number? From that I can pull the Coast Guard information of who's likely making it.

They are green and like I said seem to have a thick black undercoating on bottom of tubes

For some reason I seem to remember star building them, but could be completely wrong as well.

WOOSUNG factory in South Korea, the same factory that makes Star Inflatables.

mixed reviews. I have a couple friends with a Montana river craft (re branded star boats there's a ton of them in Livingston). One loves his but its real heavy. The other has pin holes after a few years and a blown baffle. The heavier ones with the wear guards stuck to them seem to last better. Don't plan on rolling them.

I went ahead and bought them really good shape they look almost new did a soapy water test and no leaks. they have rub rails on top and really thick skid guards underneath 700 for both I think it was a good deal
