I am in the market for a new "decent" umbrella. I have been using "recovered" brollies for some time now. In the past I have shelled out on a Fulton Open & Close 11 and a Knirps Big Duomatic. But both have suffered broken struts. From memory I may have use the "paperclip rivet repair" on one or both of them, but my biggest issue is that one of the struts on each has snapped around the middle joint in one of the ribs. I am trying to make an informed decision and am struggling with the mixed reviews I am finding. There are 2 requirements and 1 optional requirement that I have. Must be a telescopic model - space is at a premium and it needs to be carried at all times. Would like automatic opening. [Optional] Would like automatic closing I have created a shortlist of the brollies I am considering, but am also open to suggestions. Price wise, I don't want to spend over $75 USD, unless it looks like it will be worth it - but I will consider anything up to $100 USD. So here is my list: Blunt XS Metro Knirps Minimatic SL Knirps Fiber T2 Duomatic GustBuster Metro Fulton Windbreaker 1 Senz Mini AO Other - please suggest Right now I am leaning most towards the blunt.
