Product Details

10% Off All Accessories! With oversized tubes and a raised floor, the STAR Lightning Bug skips over the water for exceptional handling on small, technical rivers. These characteristics make it popular among fishing guides and anglers.
  • The STAR Self-Bailing Bug Series combines the performance of a cataraft with the convenience of a traditional raft.
  • Symmetrical diminishing tube construction and a 12" raised 2000 denier PVC floor let only the side tubes touch the water, resulting in increased speed, unmatched tracking and easy rowing.
  • STAR rafts and catarafts are built with advanced-formula PVC material using state-of-the-art seam welding technology, resulting in superior abrasion resistance, longevity and air retention.
  • The Bug Series' unique tube and raised floor design creates cataraft-like stability, making it harder to side-flip.
  • The suspended self-bailing floor supports the weight of anglers and paddlers. And since it does not hold air, it requires virtually no maintenance.
  • Top-quality Leafield C7 valves ensure trouble free inflation and deflation.
  • Add optional thwarts for a thrill-seeking paddle crew.
  • Two carry handles, ten reinforced 1.5" stainless steel D-rings and two reinforced 1.3" stainless steel D-rings.
  • Includes repair kit.
  • 5-year retail warranty, 3-year commercial.
