Nah.....the amount of fun is apparently inversely proportional to the amount of money spent*






*So some say - but it could be total rowlocks.

Stig'73 have a look at this decent report on the Vanguard 435...

http://www.excel-inflatables.co.uk/p...est_Report.pdf

Excel are perhaps less frequently talked of than the Honwave in the cheaper ranges but are very similar in quality (i.e. totally fine). There have been people on here in the past with them both cherished and chucked in sheds... never heard a complaint in either type of use.

Looks like a good Sib.
The Vanguard 430 looks near identical to The Gurnard's Quicksilver 430 HD.
Wonder if they are one and the same????
