The Sensas Super Challenge Square Umbrella comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: umbrella with a large canopy.

Specifications: 2.2 or 2.5 m ‘span’ umbrellas with a long, straight front and rear edges and three ribs at either end; 6 mm fibreglass ribs; polyester canopy that will withstand heavy rain; can be angled at 45 or 90 degrees. Weight is 2 or 2.2 kg depending on size.

My verdict: a footprint closer to a rectangle, having three umbrella ribs at either end, rather than a square, like the name suggests, means that match anglers are liking these umbrellas.

Not only will they cover you and your bait waiter and bait, but also the flat front edge helps when it comes to landing fish on a running line or pole and casting, as you’ve got more room to play with before hitting the canopy.

The shape makes sense, and the fibreglass ribs help keep the weight down.

If you want even more protection, there’s a Power Square 2.5 m design with 8 mm ribs and a tough polyester, fully waterproof fabric canopy.

Prices: £69.99-£79.99.
