THE lads at Taska clearly worked hard to get everything right with this top end brolly system.

The 66 in, space saving frame boasts an increased peak for more protection, 8 mm fibreglass ribs add stability, the hi-tech material coming with a very weather resistant 20,000 hydrostatic head waterproof rating.

The front infill panel, complete with mozzie mesh panels is removable; there’s heavy-duty protection where you need it too.

The equally heavy-duty groundsheet doesn’t only come with a built-in neoprene foot mat, there are pegging points under the actual groundsheet to improve the tensioning.

There’s three tensioning bars for added rigidity, and a handy 3,2,1 pegging point system on the front panel for height adjustment still retain a nice solid feel.

This Sneeka ‘package’ is also supplied with two long and two short, carpy green storm poles.

Even the large bespoke carry bag is heavy-duty, and the peg bag.

Other nice little touches are the bespoke nickel pegging points, the quality zippers, and the rod retention straps, which are made of neoprene – so you don’t scratch your rod blank.

Price: £349.99.
