A pretty good inter-tube with some cool features
This inter tube is made of a thick, opaque grey rubber. It's much ticker than the cheap plastics used in commonly found transparent blow-up balls & tubes. I did have some trouble inflating the inter-tube. I tried a number of different methods, but in the end using your mouth was really the most efficient. After being filled up, the tube was a bit lopsided when full. Perhaps if i had used a pump of some sort, i could inflate the tube with a bit more pressure. This was not a deal breaker by any means, as sitting in it distorts the shape anyway, as expected. The tube has three completely separate air compartments: the main tube, an inner tube, and the back pillow cushion. Each must be inflated separately, for better or worse, but if one develops a leak, i guess the tube is still usable. The pillow is a nice feature not found on most inter tubes. It is very comfortable when you lean back like a recliner, but it is not stiff enough to hold you up in the sitting position. There is a net in the middle of the tube but i personally don't like it. First off, it prevents your rear from dropping down, forcing you into a more horizontal position. And secondly, obviously, you can't dangle your feet in the middle with the tube around your waist. The water gun is a totally separate device, not at all attached to the rest of the inter-tube. It is poorly designed, and i'm not quite sure why it's included. It's one of the worst water guns I've used. The fill tube of the gun just kind of hangs in the water. The gun is annoying to fill up as you have to pull very slowly, or else it will just snap back and not shoot any water. But once full, it does have a decent range, perhaps 15 feet or so. The rubber "holster" on the inter-tube is a bit of a joke, and barely holds the gun. There is an included cup holder that fits a standard 12oz can or bottle. But it does get a little annoying to put beverages in the hole, as the rubber pushes in due to the air pressure from the tube. Other features include a string around the tube giving a good way to secure the raft, along with some pretty strong handles. SUMMARY The main tube is made of thick quality rubber. The tube is very comfortable and relaxing, yet a bit tough to fill up. Lots of features such as a bottom net, tow rope, and handles. The water gun is essentially a totally separate object, which unfortunately performs poorly. Overall, the raft is a good choice for aquatic recreation.
Do you want to have Fun or do you want to Relax?
You can do both in Pool Masters new River Cruiser Lounge Auto Launcher. The River Cruiser is tough and so comfortable! The River Cruiser does not come with anything to fill it up with air, if it did I would definitely give it 5 stars. There are 3 valves, one for the huge comfortable back like pillow and the other 2 valves are for the float, hope you have a good set of lungs lol Also be prepared to get your butt wet, there is no avoiding it, the bottom is netted, cooling your butt from your bottom up. The Launcher is a nice and fun feature. As someone walks by you can nonchalantly blast them with water and slowly place the launcher down (wasn't me). The Launcher can be hung on the side. A hose is connected to the launcher, runs under the raft and sits in the water giving you access to blast anyone with water at any time. The River Cruiser is fun! I am looking forward to take it down Weeki Wachee Springs very soon. Very little instructions are available but seriously it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how to fill up the River Cruiser. One patch is also included just in case you are on the river and spring a leak.

Good Float for Kids or Adults
This is a nice tube that’s big enough to comfortably fit an adult. Inflating was fairly straightforward, though I do recommend using either an electric pump or foot pump - it will take half the day to blow it up by mouth. There are three separate compartments to inflate, each with a one way valve. The bottom is mesh, not solid, so you will be sitting in the water to some degree, but you don’t sink as far down as you would on a standard inner tube. This tube is perfectly sturdy for floating and general horsing around the lake or river, but it is not meant to be pulled behind a boat, and I wouldn’t recommend it to be used on shallow rivers or anywhere there would be potential for it to run into rocks. I live in Tennessee and there are several river tubing outfits in the Smokies where you can ride down mild rapids on tubes, and the walls of the tubes they use for those businesses are much thicker. I do like that it has a backrest, though I found it wasn't inflated enough to provide any real support. I’ll definitely try to inflate it and the base as much as possible next time I take it out and see if that helps. The cupholder will work for cans or bottles, but you really have to work to get it in place when the base is fully inflated. It crushes Solo cups, so take my word for it & save yourself the mess of trying to make that work. The water gun is an intriguing feature, though honestly, I was underwhelmed. It shoots between 15 - 20 feet on average, but it requires a surprising amount of strength to get it all the way full. It’s also very easy for the hose to get kinked. Once it gets broken in a little it will probably be a hit with kids though. All in all, nice float - fun for a day on the water.

Not the best
Small, cheap valves located on the bottom of the float. Fine for a pool but definitely don't use this on a river. Similarly priced floats from other brands have much more reliable valves. It's a shame because the vinyl is very solid but that won't matter if your valve pops open and it deflates (happened to me).
Response from Poolmaster Product ExpertJul 26, 2021
We are sorry to hear this happened.
Typically, with this type valve you should have been able to push it in after inflation, so that it laid flush with the remaining surface of the vinyl. This way, the valve would not have a chance to pop open or begin to inflate. We truly apologize for the problem you encountered with this one and hope you will give us another chance. Poolmaster_HDX

    Float appears heavy duty and well made. However, it’s still too cold around here to actually try it out.
    Tons of Fun!
    This is a VERY nice raft. It's made out of nice, heavy rubber and the handles are very well made and sturdy. It's plenty big for me, a 6' tall guy and it's comfortable enough to stay in for a nice long afternoon. The best part though? It comes with a water sprayer. While all of your friends are floating on their regular old tubes you can have the fun on spraying them down. I'd definitely recommend this if you're in the market for new fun ways to relax on the river/lake/creek/pond

    This is a perfect inflatable lounge chair for an adult to cruise on a river or lake. The water launcher thing doesn't work as well as we had hoped, but we mostly appreciate the thick grade plastic and 3 air chambers that inflate for a comfortable relaxing experience. I wish it came with its own little air pump, but we have an electric one, so that made it easier to inflate.

    Fun in the sun!
    I took this on vacation and had a blast. The water cannon feature on this is what makes it. Our kids were fighting over who would get to sit in the raft. This will turn any boring pool party into an adventure. This will be great to use in our pool once the weather breaks. We may have to buy another one so each of our boys can have one in the pool to make it a fair fight!

    Very cool water tube!
    I got this on a lark, thinking I might be useful for fishing rather than shooting water. I had to wait until the water unfroze to try it out. It's very sturdy and stable. Although I would not recommend it for most of our rivers here, it was fine for the lake. It would be fun in the ocean or in a large pool or in a mild, non-rocky river. It was stable enough for me to fish from, but I needed a paddle to get back to shore.
