This tube is by far the most fun I've ever had on the water. My family owns boats and jet skiis but I have never laughed so hard on the water. Your body doesnt really get sore but believe me if you ride with three people you will laugh till your kidneys hurt. I have been riding tubes my entire life and my family even actually owned a company that sold tube towables back in the 80's. I've seen them all and this was a fantastic ride. If you ever wanted to just have a good time and not worry about holding on for dear life this is the ticket. Im 34 and I'm only wondering why didnt I think of that?! :)

We bought big Bertha at least ten years ago and we have beat the crap out of it and Bertha still lives! I cannot believe the punishment and neglect this thing has survived. We decided that when (if) she finally does give up the ghost, we're gonna hang her up in the basement as a shrine to wonderful times!

We've had our Big Bertha for over 4 years now and it is still going strong. It spends the entire summer in the water hooked up to our dock (when it's not being pulled) and it endures the winter still inflated outside bearing the northern Minnesota elements (not reccommended!). We have never had to add more air mid season, it just keeps on working, it's amazing! It's a great tube for kids and adults, I've pulled everyone from babies (with an adult) to a disabled elderly woman wearing a wig who had never been tubing before. She simply climbed out of the pontoon onto big Bertha, went for a ride and climbed back into the boat. I have no worries about the people I'm pulling; the tube is very stable on the water and It has never tipped over accidentally.

Update:
We are going on our 5th summer with Big Bertha. She spent the winter outside and was ready to go this spring when the ice was out. We didn't even need to add any air! The fabric on the handles is sun/ice rotted but the tube and the connection that you attach the rope to is still good enough to pull kids behind the pontoon. We will likely be tossing it at the end of the summer 😢

This is the third tube I've bought and I am very pleased with it. I used to have an older version of this brand, but the slipcover broke in the center and wasn't worth the cost to replace. This newer one was much better constructed with an inflatable section in the middle.

Pros: It's very sturdy and you're unlikely to fall off no matter how wildly (or mildly) you're towed. Losing your seat usually just means you fall into the center and can get back on the edge again. It's designed to be used by sitting on the edge with your feet in the middle which also gives you a tiny bit more control, but you can have small kids sit in the center with room to spare. Big enough for nearly any person. Easy to step into and out of from the boat, so you don't have to take flying leaps to get in or jump into the water to get out. If your arms need a break, you can just slide into the center. The inflated section in the middle protects the slipcover and rest of the tube from being damaged. Easy to attach tow ring.

Cons: The center can get very hot from the sun, toss some water in from a bucket to keep it cool. It says it can handle 4 people, but that is unlikely unless some are small. This tube is MASSIVE when inflated, so even a large boat will get crowded from it. This is NOT for small boats. Due to the size, there is a lot of resistance against air pumps before it's taut enough, so we have to use our lungs for the very end.

Love this towable. It's very stable for a child to be inside it by themselves. Once the children get their fill the fun really starts. 3-4 people and the extra weight adds for some exciting tube riding. I haven't laughed that hard for a long time. We did not stay dry though so if you're afraid of getting dumped you might want to ride it solo.

This tube is big and not very versatile. I bought it because the reviews said it was a fun and sturdy towable. I would say it is great for kids that just want to ride, but adults might not find it too fun. If you put more than one person in it, they will have to load balance. I found the inner safety air chamber hard to inflate and there is a standard air valve and the tube doesn't stay aligned with the cover.

My kids love it! We live on the lake, so they even use it to lounge on by our dock. We also pull several of the kids in it with our boat. My mom even wanted to go tubing in it and loved it. Best tube for the family in my opinion.

This thing is HUGE, no joke. I bought it for some lake fun with adult friends... I remember tubing a lot when I was a kid and I would have to say this is intimidating for any kid. It is so large, you cannot drag yourself onto it while in the water after getting tossed off. Really fun though! :-) If you are looking for a giant tube, than this is it. Don't try to put this on a small boat, otherwise you'll have no passenger room.
