This sturdy umbrella has an extra-long, adjustable spike made from thick-gauge aluminium. Importantly, it is the standard 19mm external diameter of most fishing umbrella poles but with a greater internal wall thickness for extra rigidity and durability.
Both models have the same length adjustable pole, which is height extendable to approximately 2.3m. This ensures it can be pushed deep into the ground yet still allow plenty of height for you to sit under.
We have spent considerable time perfecting the three-position angle tilt mechanism so that the umbrella can be securely locked at horizontal, 30 and 90 (vertical) angles, should you wish.
The umbrella outer is made from durable, PU coated, rot-proof, polyester with taped seams to keep out the elements. The 44in model also features slightly lighter fabric to keep the overall weight down for anglers who prefer to travel light. At just 2.35kg this model is approximately 16% lighter than the 50in (2.8kg) design.
The fibreglass ribs are part of a clever shallow spoke canopy that has been designed to provide maximum head clearance. Securing rings allow you to peg one or more of the panels flush to the ground when it is used at 30 or vertical positions. There are also four ribs with a removable sta-biliser attachment. This has a standard 3/8in BSF thread that will accommodate a bankstick or storm pole for an even sturdier setup. Two ground pegs and a 3m adjustable umbrella cord are also supplied.
The entire package is finished off nicely with a drawstring bag made from the same PU coated material.
