hi guys I've been a white water kayaker for a few years, and an avid fly fisherman, I have an outcast fish cat 13 which is a subsidiary of aire. My pontoons are 13' x22" in diameter. And a single valve design but they do feature the airecell system as well. Right now I cant afford a 1500.00 set of tubes, but my buddy said I could use his white water frame with 3 yokes that he made for his 13' saturn(the fish cat 13 tubes seem more well built p.s). I was just wondering if these tubes should suffice until I can afford a new set, outcast says that the raft with their kind of chinsy fishing platform is rated for class 3 with a capacity over 500lbs. And I will be running solo again I am sorry I know they're not sotars or nrs tubes but for now I just want to be on the river after having my shoulder rebuilt thanks for any insight guys!

I've had a PAC 1000 for over 12 years. I just had one of the Leafield valves repaired last year, and that's it. No other problems. The Outcast Fishcat line is one step below the PAC line, with slightly less heavy fabric and different valves......however, based on what I've experienced with Outcast products, you should be just fine. Outcast makes sturdy products. Take care of them and don't abuse them, and you'll be happy. I've also been using their frame all these years and it's held up great.

thanks, that's exactly what I figured guys. I almost got the Pac but I got the fish cat 13 off a friend for 750.00 with a wider set of spreader bars, nrs webbed floor, and all the factory components as well. I purchased a pair of dynamite blades to go with as well for when I row my 12' drift pram as well.

Sounds like you've got a nice set-up. You should get years of service from your Outcast tubes. Happy fishing.
