I shook my diawa flatback dry last Saturday and 3 of the carbon ribs broke
But up till that happened I was very impressed with it. They don't make them anymore either.
Looking to get a Preston Flatback.

Agreed, I have one but hate it. Much rather sit there with a good set of waterproofs on. Brolleys just get in the way

i would say by far it has to be the preston flat back had mine a while now had quite a few brollys the worst one has got to be the daiwa tournament sheild didnt last 2 mins for the price i was very dissapointed with it

brollys are for keeping you dry i see a lot of anglers using them for wind breaks not recommended.not made for that.

I used Wavelock brollies, always tough and durable, then the ball socket used for tilting snapped.....gone over to the Preston flatback now which incorporates a metal tilt mechanism, so far so good!

Any that keeps you dry!
Personal preference is key. Nubrollies are great but heavy, while nylon ones are very light.

Personally I take one of about 5 depending on conditions.

Not voted as I don't use a brolly, I have two in the garage some where, but not used one for years, they just get in the way, may get a bait brolly in the near future

I have a brolly that i got for about 15 off the internet. I very rarely use it unless it is chucking it down and even then they are a nightmare.

Cant believe people go into so much detail on brollies, one that keeps the rain off you should be sufficent
