Landing net????

Post by jimmy » Mon Aug 26 2019 21:03

Guys on the look out for a new net but looking for one with strong arms and preferably rubber mesh , bought a kodex serenity net cpl of weeks bk but first time giving it a dip not impressed , too much water drag and the head just sagged , don’t really want to go down the boat net route as prefer to pack everything into my quiver ,, looked at the dam effzett but bit pricey to buy just to try , anything out there?

Whereabouts are you mate? I picked up a savage gear folding thingy a few weeks ago, the Xl one, and find that the handles not really long enough for the waters I fish. The things never been near water, I’ve just taken it out of its bag. You’re welcome to have a play!

If you've already got some 42" net arms and want rubber mesh the fox rage speedflow replacement mesh fits.Quite a few on here use the same , me included.

The rubber meshes are all heavy i’ve got the fox rage net on 42inch arms and it’s a bit unwieldy compared to a normal net but the pluses outweigh that slight negative, if your fishing rivers I think the problems would magnify so would probably go down the lure net route in that case

Def not fun on a river Mark.... Nets with a bigger hole size come into their own there. Wish lumby could source his with a slightly smaller dia mesh.
Love the hit!

Hi Ziggy
Which nets are you refering to, they all seem a little shallow to me.

Q; are those you use rubber coated cord or true plastic, rubber or whatever?

Good shop at first glance.
Cheers :thumbs:

I've just had delivery of one of Rays nets after one of my mates did a write up about them and he raves about them.

Price :eek:
Do one yourself buy a bottle of latex off eBay
The fox mesh does the job well too plenty of threads on here about them if you search.
