Best Uses

    Comments about West Marine Lightning Tube:

    This tube is quite tough and durable and tows very nicely. But for the price It might be better to get a 2-person tube where you can sit and holds more weight. We tried loading a short (5'1") skinny person with a slightly overweight average (5'6") person on a well-pumped Lightning and it sank. So we are thinking of getting a better one.

    I got his in-store and had a good experience
