Photoflex® adjustable reflective Umbrellas were already the most versatile photographic umbrellas available today; and now they're even better. The new andimproved umbrella line includes ribs and strut pivots that are now made from a fiberglass composite, which is not only stronger, but also offers better resiliency and durability than steel or aluminum.
This new design feature allows for almost carefree handling, all but eliminatingdamage caused from over bending delicate steel tube ribs. All umbrella center poles are extruded and closed off at the base (vs. folded, hollow tubes, like many other umbrellas, that are easily bent and dented) adding to the durability of the Photoflex® umbrella model.
The RUD 45" Shoot Through Umbrella is not only great as a "shoot-through" umbrella, but it can also be used as an inexpensive bounce light.
Umbrellas have a 3 year warranty.

As a pro photographer I never know what kind of elements I will be shooting in, even with lights. We do outdoor group pics for the high school football teams. The wind blew over 2 light stands and demolished the umbrellas. They had hollow core stems and flimsy metal struts. These have a solid core main stem and the struts are flexible fiberglass. I love the material and the construction. I plan on buying a couple more sets.
