      Comments about Gladiator Launch Towable:

      This thing takes abuse and keeps on going. After 3 summers I am buying a second one. It works great for normal tubing. The kids love for me to go slow and zig zag which they then submarine through large waves. Water covers everyone and the kids are all smiles. If you go just a little faster it glides back and forth over the water in a very stable manner. This is the best thing on the water.

        Comments about Gladiator Launch Towable:

        Variety of ride "thrills" with various speeds and turning action. Very stable for the smaller and less energetic riders, yet can provide appropriate thrills with careful practice. Helps to balance weight of riders toward center. 2 riders do well on the outside and the center left open.

              I was surprised to read the negative comments. Our kids, 10, 12, & 16, and their friend loved riding this tube. They did have to be careful about submarining, but that is pretty common in any larger tube. We were able to give them great rides all summer.

                does this tube have handles to pull yourself up out of the water?

                  A:

                  The handles provide on the tubes are for holding on while being towed. You get on the best way possible, it varies for each rider and you have to find the easiest method for yourself.
