Fishing Raft suggestion: Sevylor, Intex, or Coleman

Hello there, My first time in this forum. I am looking to purchase a small fishing raft. I would like to fit 2 adult men comfortably (this usually equals about a 4-5 person capacity I would say in most ratings)

I'm not looking on spending very much. There are some very inexpensive rafts such as a Coleman 4 man raft with a weight capacity of about 600 lbs for about $59 online. There is also the Intex Sea Hawk 500 which has about the same weight capacity but has fishing rod holders for about $99. Then there is the Sevylor Fish Hunter rafts; the 9' and the 12'. Both holding 700 lbs and 1200 lbs, consecutively. They are about $189 and $219.

My main concern is durability. I want a raft that is going to hold up well to bumps and scrapes. Is one of these rafts going to hold up better or hold air better or worse than another? I also like the rod holders.
Any suggestions?
