The pontube came today, a Classic Accessories, "Chehalis."
Here is a pic link with a few details.

PS thank you both for your comments!

Jeff,
It is a deluxe size. It should be interesting. I still need things, like a hand pump and emergency paddle, but it should be a comfy ride.
I fish the back waters and coves of a very large lake in SC, so it should come in handy.

Mike,
The Chehalis has a 350# capacity, one reason I wanted it. I also wanted bigger, not compact. I can throw it in the carpeted truck bed and be at my fishing spots within minutes. I don't need ultralight or tiny, so I opted for deluxe.
I am also refurbishing a personal, framed pontoon boat. It will need new bladders and skins and Cover Bonanza sells 8 ft. Models that will fit. In talking with them, I learned this one was on clearance, new. I pulled the trigger. This will get the lard @ss I also carry on the water, and I can get the pontoon going at my leisure.
I'd stick with your FC's since you are used to them. I got this one because the price was easily in my range.

Sorry to be the cause of such pain. lol  Thank you for taking the time to answer a couple of the important questions.

 I am considering a new tube this season, but I'll hold out till I know what I am getting. Probably a solidly proven Outcast Fat Cat. I love the Fish Cat #4 but eat too well I guess.

That Chehalis is a killer tube bro similar to the Pondarey, but I think it is a step up from that one.  That is a big boy but you should be able to stay out on the water for extended time I am sure it is comfortable beyond belief.

Wow lots of questions! Making my head hurt!

- weight of the material top and bottom?
Check the link below for specs.

- I am currently in an Outcast Fat Cat. Is this cover equal or heavier than the Outcast?
Probably not.

- What type and how many valves.
Don't know about anything but Boston valves, and these are different.

- Are there locations where one can look at these prior to ordering?
Don't know. I went with the sellers good reputation.

- Do you have a product view demo on you tube?
Don't know. Didn't look.

Okay Tube Heads - the posts are at a standstill.

Here's my latest addition:

Classic Accessories, 'Chehalis'

Chehalis

My first new inflatable, besides the pool floats out in the yard. This should be interesting. Awaiting its arrival as we speak.
