The 412ubes are extremely durable yet lightweight. The formula used to create these tubes has been proven over and over to hold up to the rocky environments of rivers. These baits are great for catching fish no matter the time of year. When you pair the lightweight tube with any number of rigging types, be prepared to hold on to your rod and enjoy the ride! Time and time again these tubes have proven themselves to be phenomenal bass catchers. You are sure to be the envy of fellow fishermen out on the water when you use one of these tubes!
