Poles snap quickly

Reviewed by VA girl from Reston, VA on Wednesday, September 3, 2014
I bought 2 of these last year to use at the beach for shade. Last year, one of the poles snapped quickly with strong wind. I took the second shade to the beach last week with hopes of better performance. Not surprisingly but unfortunately, a pole snapped again. We did our best to angle the shade so that the wind was blowing toward one of the 3 sides where the poles went down to the ground and that worked well, but as soon as the wind changed direction and blew against the portion where the pole was suspended in the air, it just cracked completely. Overall, we love the shade protection, but the poles need to be sturdier. It is such a waste to throw the whole thing out, but I am down 2 for 2.
