This umbrella features dual operation of automatic and manual opening with a pinchless open/close release system. The high impact end cap protects and preserves the beauty of the umbrella.
However, users say that the umbrella is smaller (38 - 42 inches), unlike as advertised of being 48 inches. Some users feel the umbrella is weak and often pops open unexpectedly. It does not stay closed if not secured with the Velcro straps. The Velcro straps detach and fall off and the button lock mechanism fails after some usage. Some users have emphasized that the shaft and handle is made of plastic and looks rather cheap.
Overall the GustBuster Classic 48 - inch Automatic Golf Umbrella has great coverage, attractive looks and variety of colors. The Golf umbrella is wind - tested by College of Aeronautics to 55+ MPH.
