As I am now replacing my stolen tackle I am struggling to find a replacement Wavelock Umbrella so would anyone know or an outlet where such a product can still be purchased?

 

Need to find a 60"+.

 

Thanks in advance.

There's a 60" brolly on the Grandeslam website - not Wavelock but includes "Storm poles" so would have thought it's a severe weather type?? Just scroll down a bit, also have a look at the accompanying Vid' re adjustment of poles in Driving rain.

 

Not sure how the poles would work on hard staging on commies??

Also this one from summerlands.

I have a Preston 50" Flatback brolly - thick nylon & water proof in even the worst weather.

Not 60 but a 50 one here https://www.anglingd...velock-umbrella

Do they actually still sell 60 Wavelock brollies? you might have to buy an alternative one if not.

I bought my last Wavelock brollie (which is still going strong) Back in the 90s and that was a 50 one; although because of its excessive weight Ive had to buy lighter brollies as well .

I looked for one a spell back but had no luck either, looks like they've ceased production of them.
