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.
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.
