Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for GustBuster Classic 48-Inch Automatic Golf Umbrella. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.20 stars, and the price range is $24.99-$70.00.

The GustBuster Classic 48 - inch Automatic Golf Umbrella is made of 100% nylon fabric, double reinforced light weight fiberglass shaft which does not crimp or snap, attractive fitted raindrop shaped double sheath (canopy) and a natural classic well contoured hardwood J shaped handle. This classic golf umbrella is lighter yet far stronger than other ordinary umbrellas and gives complete protection from rain and wind. It is proved to be one of the finest wind-resistant umbrellas in the world and can easily stand up to 55+ MPH. 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.

Heavy winds seem to barely move the wind flaps, it's just very well designedWhen the wind does get under it, both canopies separate allowing the wind to just flow through the large holes, all while keeping one dryGreat coverage, attractive colors, and does a great job in strong winds

The design works very well in high wind conditionsHas minor problem such as not staying closed without securing the Velcro strapsThe Velcro straps become detached and fall off, and the button lock mechanism fails as well, causing the umbrella to spring open at times Nice design and has a nice carry handle as well
