Is it 4 ?


Yes, well done Baz :z16

There are three bladders in the main V-hull and another bladder in the lower of the two backrest compartments. The Shakespeare version of this tube has five, so it has a bladder in both backrest compartments ...... I still feel safer in the Sparton :wink

Over to you for the next question Baz ..................

If I remember correctly, I think the Sana competition guys work to a max fly size of about 1" 1/8, or 1" 1/4, so I would imagine a guess of 1" 1/4 shouldn't be too far out?

4" refers to the specialist pike days they have from time to time.

Mike's got it with standard fishing at 1 1/4" to tie in with the Scottish Clubs rules.
