Re Tubing Rib

Had an incident on holiday tubes were knifed, and now looking to have the tubes renewed.

Has anyone on here got any real life experience, of having their rib re-tubed, who did you use, was it a good experience, and probably more important to me who wouldn't you use, and why.

TIA

Steve

Had mine done earlier this year at the manufacturer, Humber. It took 6 weeks from drop off to collection, but I wasn't in a rush.

Re Tubing Rib

I'm in the states but had a set made by Henshaw/Wing. Tubes were glued in England and had them shipped to the states. Beautiful job and a spectacular company. They took care of some unexpected problems in a very professional manner.
