did do a search but only one thread came up. So I’m looking for anyone who has royal leisure 6 pole windbreak ? Any good? 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Not in position to spend loadsa dosh on one, but would like decent mid range priced one.

Thanks so much x

This looks similar in design to the Gelert 5 pole Breeze Blocker I bought some years ago and never got on with, in fact I've given up trying to use it as a windbreak and adapted it as a sunshade extension on our Fiamma F45 Awning.

Windbreaks like this, which use metal poles with short spikes on the end and rely on guy ropes to keep them up, are a bit like Marmite - you either love 'em or hate 'em.

Here are two reviews for the same item, with opposing views (I'm with the first one!):

"  'Utter rubbish . . . save your money'

Totally agree! We have used ours about five times and I swear every time it's used! It's hopeless. Spend half your life adjusting the bloody thing. Forever falling down. Gonna chuck it in the bin next time I see it! The good old fashioned stripe type that you hammer in are far superior to this muck! You've been warned, spend your money on a different type of windbreak.  "

"I have used this model of windbreaker the whole of last summer and found it held up better in the wind than my previous 'wooden pole' windbreakers. With this you do not have the problem of not being able to hammer the poles into hard or stoney ground. So long as you use the guy ropes, there should be no worries about it falling down. If the wind is particularly bad, a couple of extra guy ropes will sort it out."

You pays yer money and ye makes yer choice! Personally, I found it a pain to erect and the guy ropes required on both sides to balance kept getting in the way.
