The new profile packs up in your Sportube much better than the older models. We took this float out and gave it a good run in the clearest water we've seen all year. We really liked the way it sat in the water, highly visible to boat traffic and really tough. We ran this float together with a Floatline Bungie Combo and had a great wahoo setup. Also tows well behind boats for drift dives.
The Rob Allen Float has a very tough Polyethylene Outer Shell which is the same material that kayaks are made out of. They can take an absolute beating and still perform.
