Has anyone e ever seen weight limits for these chairs and if so where ?
And if there are none posted by korum does that mean suitable for all ???
Ive had my nash indulgence a few years now and think its spot on,like the built in carry strap as wellI was after one of those, wasn’t impressed with it in the shop, tried it side by side with a nash indulgence ultra light and there is no comparison in comfort and build quality. Slightly heavier but still a very light chair. I’m 16.5 stone used the nash one without issue so far…
If that fails Neil are you likely to injure yourself???I had a similar problem with a Korum X25 chair, which was 14 months old when it failed. I was looking online for a local aluminium welder that I might persuade to repair it when I found a YouTube video showing aluminium brazing with a propane torch. Long story short, I bought a couple, stripped the chair and set to work. I’ve yet to try the chair on a fishing trip but, fingers crossed, it should be fine.
It won’t collapse Richard as I’ve also put an 8mm machine screw through both tube sections. But you’re right, it’s not as strong as welding but I failed to find anyone local to do the job so well have to see.If that fails Neil are you likely to injure yourself???
If so then I’d suggest you cut it off and get it welded because I’d have money on that failing under load at some point. While brazing is an acceptable way to join materials it is not a fusion joint.
The strength in a brazed joint comes from both capillary action while the filler is still liquid state and fabrication design not to over load the joint
Sadly in this case you have neither on your side
