Default Nets

What material exactly are the nice nets made of. The ones that don't have holes are not transparent, and are black. Are these ones better on the fish than those rough material ones? I just bought one from cabelas for when I fish this one lake that has a load of algae cover on the shores, and sometimes the whole fish gets covered in it and way everything down to the point that I can't lift on it anymore without my tippet breaking. So I bought it in case that happens so I can get em out. But when I went shopping all I saw was this very course material that all of them are made of. The 50 dollar nets were the same as the 14 dollar one, I bought the 14 dollar one. Now I don't really want to use it because it just seems too rough, so I am wondering what the material is in the really nice ones, because I might just get some and replace the material on the one I have now.

hey patio87,
good ??
looking at the nets on cabel's site.
looks like the bags on the $14 net is finer then the other ones.
the bag on the $49 net is the standered bag that most makers use,
it's soft no knots is good on the fish.
there are other net bags out there that are better.
1 is 100% rubber to heavy for me, others are rubber coated.
you just have to fined them.
if you need some help PM me i'll help you out.
hope this helps.
see ya Greg

Hey Greg, you should look at Tropical LIghtning nets. I asked the biggest mail order company on the west coast (anglers workshop) what net has the best workmanship, and they said Tropical Lightning Creations. They also said no other net is as beautiful as the hawaiian woods they use. TLC nets, according to them sell much better than fishknat. I got a TLC tropical Lightning net in cocobolo, and it was so beautiful it took my breath away. PLUS it comes with a net magnet in the same premium wood at no extra charge. Brodin and Fisknat simply do not compare. TLC has been underground for several years, but their nets are sprouting up all over like wildfire.

Hey dgd...

WAY TOO FUNNY!!!

Since you seem to think you know so much about Tropical Lightning, let me turn you on to a little deatail................
TLCGPW = Tropical Lightning Creations - Gregory P. Walker... I'm sure he'll appreciate the praise. I have done a bit of his ad and marketing work, they are second to none! If you click on the link in his signature you can see some of his work and mine too :-)
