can you give me an idea of the prices on their solid sticks or anything else you got a number on?I contacted them via email. Seems that pricing was all more or less the same for the different woods, at least the ones I was looking at ~7 years ago.
good to know. i have two maglia’s bought this year - fit-ups, one sent by mistake i got to keep, so £130 for the two - and they’re 38” walking length. as long, pretty much as most UK solid sticks, with only bespoke or one or two 39” beating this.I bought a Fox a couple of years ago and that was 500 or 600 euros. They are all in that range. Brigg's finishing looks nicer, but they also whittle the stick narrower than the Fox, which to me at least, means not as strong. One thing is also true, the Italian makers only make pretty small umbrellas, Fox, or Brigg you can get longer sticks and wider canopies, which I value.
yes. massive; i am 6’ 2”. 10 rib frames also. not measured canopy but well over 1m. fit-ups with malaca handles. their prices are currently 260 euros+ for these, and 320 euros+ for solid. i got offered one from unpaid orders and was asked what my price limit was. this included postage too, which i estimate was £60 or so to me in the UK.Are the canopy diameters the same though? For whatever reason I was only able to find larger canopies with the English makers. Also, are they solid sticks, or just fancy handles?
Single stick Talaricos are in the high US$300s at NMWA, which is an extremely reasonable price for Americans given that shipping is built in. Artisanal umbrella makers tend to not have enough shipping volume to bring shipping costs to anything shy of painful.I mean even lower-end "nice" umbrellas are like 450 euros so you're really not going to get out of that ballpark.
