I found this post after I took a look at the unbreakable umbrella. $180+ is a lot to be paying for an umbrella. Then I came across this thread. Do you know of any youtube videos or of other sites that go into more detail about doing the modification that you mentioned?

Nope, that's it, as far as I know. It's pretty self-explanatory, though ...
