I'm looking to buy a new towable that would be good for lounging and rarely tubing. I know that tubing is the devil to alot of people on this board but sometimes people on the boat just don't want to try boarding. This also says it could be used as a launch pad. Does anyone have a review of the product?

Tubers Don't bother me I carry 2 tubes and a inflater. If anybody has a problem with tubing
I suggest you find a nice privet lake that doesn't allow them.

More for lounging, but this thing is SWEET!!!

I'm thinking of getting one. Suprisingly, the cheapest place I have found it is SKYMALL.

i don't know anything about that one- fwi-i do know that the one i got (and never use) with my boat is a 3 person connely and it's monstrous. takes forever to inflate and a pain to transport (did that 1 time). whatever u do- good luck.

CR that thing is sweet. I was trying to find something that was sort of all in one. I like the idea of a canopy tho. How big of an inflater do you use Michael? I have one that I use to air up mattresses and I don't think I want to buy another if that will get the job done.

Brandon, I have the Obrien Jumpseat that works well for both. Two people can lounge or a fun towable on the rough water days, if it just had cupholders it would be perfect, haha.Upload

Do any of the brands hold up better than others? I had 2 ho sport 3 man tubes for the last 5 years but every year I had to replace blatter on at least on if not each. When they went out of warranty then I was forced to buy new ones because they would not sell me a blatter seperate. Need to find something that holds up better.

This thing is awesome from LF. A buddy of mine had one and it was great, only for two people but it does have cup holders. We would pull it up on the beach to use as extra seating as well. Definitly my pick.

Another option is the Party Island. It's absolutly massive. Not sure what you were lookin to spend, but they are both available on LF's website. Just my $.02

IMO, The O'brien Super Screamer is the best all around towable. It is big enough for three kids or two adults. It is not as large or cumbersome as some of the ones shown above. If we have no place to tie it up while we ride, I can actually pull my son wakeboarding while the tube is tied to the transom ski eye. It is a well made towable and O'brien really stands behind their products.

IMHO: Inflating with a shop vac is the fastest way.
I purchase mine from a local shop and they warranty for a year.

You need the Molecule

http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?r=view&i=15346&pdesc=HO_Sports_Sphere_Series_3_Person_Molecule_Towable_128_x_132&merchID=1008&str=molecule

Awesome towable, perfect to lounge around on and makes a great jungle gym for the kids if you have them around. Inflates in under 10 min with the HO pump. I have had 4 200lb guys on it at full speed. Thing is a beast...and a blast.
