$161 for a series 3 (their largest offering). Just picked one up with a bunch of accessories.

Been wanting one of these for almost a year!

Ha I could have pointed you to this website. My buddy bought one off there a while back. Shipping took a while but it arrived in good new condition.
Only need 3 more years and I'll be able to think like a fish.

I put out a WTB on this site and NCKA quite a while ago =( Oh well... now I just have more appriciation for how convenient the sporttube is because I can think back to all the PVC pipe cases I made for the guns and packed them in a soft case snowboard bag. haha

Just be careful when you’re traveling, I’ve had a couple incidences TSA didn’t put the pin back in correctly or at all (even with that sticker thats says attention TSA 🙄). After a couple hard lessons learned from having to completely reorganize and put the sport tube back together at the odd size baggage claim, I marked up the hole with neon tape and arrows where they are supposed to put the pin back. Have yet to test my idea tho. Anyone else have issues like this or have suggestions how to get TSA to figure it out??

That's a really valuable "heads up" - thanks for that.

I wonder, with the tape as well, if you could zip tie the pin to the case so they more or less have to put it back in upon taking it out and inspecting?

I need to stop sharing and get my own too, but I notice this is the multi snow model not the spearfishing one.  Not really sure the difference but on sportubes website they are separate.

There's no difference between the two. Its just in 2 spots on the website. For real though the Sportstube is pretty clutch to have. So far I've gone to Baja and back twice (4 flights total and an equal number of plane changes) and have not had TSA miss the pin. I replaced it with a TSA approved lock though. I can tell they have opened it once, and they did totally re-organize my gear and lost one of my gloves but oh well... lol
