In a word... Brilliant...!

I added the extending legs and it's perfect, all my Preston bits fit and I have a ready made fishing station for pleasure trips... with side tray feeder bowl and rod rests... my knees are totally shot so the new setup allows me to fish more than just matches perched on my box/platform... it can be lowered down so it fits under a low/oval brolly for better weather protection, or I can simply slot a normal brolly into the Korum holder on hot days.. I'm really smitten with this chair... so much so I'm wondering if it can be be used whilst match fishing and maybe selling on my beloved Matchbox

Totally agree,i've been using it for 3 seasons on barbel sessions but my ms has got so bad that a seatbox is impracticle.Like you i have bought telescopic legs and a footplate,not used it yet but it is well designed and great quality as is all the korum stuff i use.
The only problem is that being 6ft tall i can't quite get my thigh level for pole fishing,i had to sell my main pole cos it wouldn't get used,the butt diameter was too big for my hands so i bought 6 top kits for my old yank and bank and plan to use this for all pole work,never going above 10m will help me with handling but only time will tell whether it will cause problems but for all my rod n reel fishing it reigns supreme.

MiddyMan... I have put 2 Preston Ripple bars and a Korum brolly holder on the chair and it still folds up flat, I have the groundbait hoop and bag and medium Preston side tray in a net bag with my landing nets... I have a couple of Preston winder boxes with ready made rigs, feeders and bits and the lot goes into my carryall.. so now I have a small lightweight setup that I can take pretty much anywhere.. chair netbag carryall and rodbag... I have also found a Korum Bag chair so I can put the chair, my nets and satellite pieces into that..

Have you tried the new Korum speedfit accessories ?
I have the feeder arm ,bait bowl with hoop and butt rest I find they cut down on set up time as the main fittings can be left on the chair legs.

My family treated me to the deluxe version for my 60th birthday and I love it. The only thing I have found is that anything that is fixed to it wobbles. I now use a tripod to stand my bait waiter on and I have today bought one of Aldi's bivvy tables to put my coffee on rather than slopping it all over my side tray every time I get up or move quickly.

Looking at images online of the Deluxe, does it have a higher back rest/head rest than the standard chair? I can see it becoming a bit off balance once there's accessories attached.

Just upgraded to the deluxe model and I find it a big improvement over the standard model.
It has a higher back and a prominent head rest which I find comfortable.
The big improvement is the extra padding which now covers the side metal fittings which on the standard model tended to dig into your backside.
I use a large preston side tray,the groundbait bowl, rod rest arm and brolly fitting and have no problems with the chair feeling unbalanced.

the more accessories you add to the chair legs, the more stable it becomes... I think for those prone to nodding off then the deluxe is the kiddie... for those who want to stay away and fish then the standard is the way to go...

I have used mine twice now and I've come to the conclusion that although you could match fish with one... I'll be keeping my box for matches as bobbing up and down to get odd bits out of the carryall is a bit of a chore, whereas on the box, I have drawers with all the gubbins that I need readily to hand...

As I regularly pleasure fish with vintage gear I'll be using the chair for those outings and the odd times when I go carping

Had mine since 2006. Still going strong, I cracked the side tray and replaced it. When it eventually gives out I'll be buying another for sure.

I fit my Korum lite weight chair to the compact ruckbag every time I go fishing. Totally brilliant.

Just as a try out I fitted the compact ruckbag to my accessory chair in Docklow tackle on Saturday, it only attaches by the plastic moulded hooks, and there are no other methods of securement... if this is good enough for your uses, then I suppose it'll work, but I'd be wary of overloading the bag and having one of the hooks or the stitching fail whilst in situ... hope this helps

I have considered a chair for ages now, mainly to reduce the ridiculous weight I have to hump around every time I fancy a fishing session,but although I don't match fish now I still like to use a pole up to 14.5 mtrs sometimes, my question is can I do this from a chair.

It's do-able, but I wouldn't recommend it.... At Docklow on Sat I was using a 6m margin pole and it was right on the border of being uncomfortable.... For 14mts you'd need the chair set high and the back set low to get the room to ship back properly.... I'd use the chair for a short margin pole, but not a proper long pole... hope this helps

I use an Avanti net bag and it slots in between the seat base and seat back whilst mobile, I just carry a side tray, compact unhooking mat and a landing net.... if you wanted to take a keepnet I think you'd struggle and if the bag leaks (they all do) you'd have a wet seat and back on your return home...!

I think that may be expecting too much, and mainly depends on your own build and body strength not to mention your prowess handling the pole.
So long as you buy the extending legs and include a bump bar and a footplate with your chair you could manage it !
