    Default Another Chair Thread Yawn

    I am looking for a new chair that should prove more suitable for me than my current Chub Hi Lite.

    I would like one that has a reasonably high back the angle of which must be adjustable.

    The height must be consistent with a more natural sitting position enabling me to get out of it easier than the one I have now and to aid that getting out I would like it to have arms.

    I would like the seat to be firm and not saggy although with my weight that might be asking a lot

    I don't want it to weigh a ton so one made of aluminium if possible but not an aluminium that is liable to breakage.


    Mud feet are a must as is a leg adjusting system that will last more than one season before it needs repairing.

    I think that's about it and I do realise its a long list and that some compromise could be needed, tackle isn't something I look at unless I am after something to do a job I need of it so I haven't a clue what's out there.

    Any ideas gentlemen

    Chairs are like clothes Graham and what suits one person will not necessarily suit another . My eldest daughter bought me a Middy Robo chair full monty a couple of years ago which I have posted about. It weighs about 5 kilos and is very comfortable. The telescopic legs failed out of warranty and it was returned to Kodex( the chair is now a Kodex) . Being an impatient so and so , and fearing the worst, I bought a Korum accessory chair which is very well engineered but heavy(6.2 kilo). This too is comfortable as long as I extend the legs so that I am not sitting too low down. The back does not recline but the deluxe version does have this facility .

    Sitting on a chair for 5 minutes in a tackle shop is a waste of time in assessing the comfort of a chair. One needs several hours on the bank!

    Anyway Kodex to my surprise gave me a brand new chair which I am yet to use! It will be a very useful spare and being lighter can be carried on my ruckbag. I would say that on balance the Kodex is the more comfortable and reclines. If you fancy trying it and are ever in my neck of the woods or meeting Kev in the near future you are welcome to try it. Have a look on Amazon or the Kodex website for details of local stockists ! Good luck!

    Ps Kodex said they had never had a chair that failed like mine( it was 18 months old). They did not have to replace it but did which says a lot for customer service!

    A fishing chair is very much a personal choice but to my mind you cannot beat the fully adjustable high back chair from Korum.

    I have not really seen anything to better it, but the price does put a lot of anglers off of it.

    It is not the lightest but then lightness is often not too stable or indeed too comfortable.

    I think it ticks all of your boxes . . . . .

    It probably does Graham and it can be carried easily if your peg isn't far! It is well engineered!

    Mine is the non delux version but it is nearly 2 kilos lighter but does not recline!

    Another vote for the Robo chair - my beloved bought me the 'Bells & Whistles' package the Christmas before last & I'm very happy with it although truth be told the only accessory that I tend to use is the side tray . This variant has arms which does make it easier to ease in / out of your seat, but they do add to the weight & can make it slightly more awkward leaning across to reach stuff, but that's a negligible niggle. The adjustable legs have thus far behaved perfectly.

    I fear that weight will always be a trade off against build quality / solidity to a certain degree & this is not a chair that I would want to rove far with (although I have carted it the best part of a mile on occasions!), but if comfort & build quality are your main criteria, I would certainly say that it's worth a look.

    I am not one for going for the top of the range all singing, all dancing version of anything, however I did when it came to the chair as my immediate family all chipped in and bought me the Korum De-lux for my 60th birthday a couple of years ago. I have no complaints with it at all. Some say it is heavy, but I have no others to compare it to.

    Hmmm... Where did that one go?

    Yes agree with that I was looking for recommendations from members to get some sort of list of chairs to check out , I shall add Kodex to that list

    Next time I see you Graham i'll bring my Nash Peg1 with me, I reckon it will be ideal or as near as you'll get.

    It's got the wheel kit too along with all the hard standing attachments which I made for it, I'm still very fond of it but it's sitting in the corner of the garage doing nothing which is a shame really and I can't foresee when i'll next use it so it's yours if it suits.

    Listen to Steve Graham . . . . . if that chair is "binka-proof" then it must be a bloody wonderful piece of kit . . . . virtually bombproof!
