Default Rising Aluminum Net?

Anybody tried out the "Rising" Aluminum nets [1] before?
If so, whatcha think about them?


I ordered the 24" yesterday, on a whim. Looks like a sturdy net, but Iooks can be deceiving.

Meh. It's anodized aluminum and should last many years. Small price to pay for a quality piece of gear IMO. Besides, it's cheaper than the Fishpond net ($200) I was looking at.

Hey B reelz,

Did you receive it yet? Whatcha think of it in hand?

$140 on FISHING gear is cheap.

Well cheaper than a boat that those metal heads spend!

and their tackle purses, 12 rods lined up with their special lines and reels and tricked out lures(which some lures cost more than the rod), ect ect ect

And don't forget about thsoe BBQ Lords that have to have special equipment $$$$ to cook food, when all you need is fire(heat)

FYI, on my 3-wt I use 3.5 lb tippett, sometimes 2LB. On my spinning gear for trout I use 4 or 6 lb mono.

Fly/bubble I use 2 lb leader.

Comes down to knowing your equipment and utilizing it with God-like precision-
