What net do y'all use in your boat for netting fish? Folding or not?

Frabill Conservation Landing Net

I use this one and I love it. Frabill really makes the best nets on the market if you ask me. This particular net is a space saver because the handle can retract and the whole net itself can become compact. The netting material is high quality and I very rarely have to untangle hooks from it. It's also pretty lightweight and you can extend the handle with one hand while fighting a fish. Great net and well worth the price.

I've went through quite a few nets and this one is probably the best net I've had and by far the cheapest. Very big and very light.

Bought me one of these last month and have yet to use it. No review. I love the way it screws apart and fits in my storage and out of the way.

I use a frabill hiber net. Unfortunately, I rarely use it given I typically flip anything under about 6lbs. When I have needed it though, it's worked great. Stows nicely, but it is not treble hook friendly.

I've been through a rubber net. They have a lot of drag in the water. It makes scooping a fish pretty difficult.

I also have a Frabill 20" X 24" Power Stow net but I paid maybe $50 at Academy. Works great. The difference might be in the net mesh. Mine is a little wider spacing than what Chris's link showed. But when I looked on Academy.com they had what looks like the net Chris is describing but it is like $90.

I had one of the rubber nets but it was very heavy and had a lot of water resistance when netting the fish and was had shallow "basket". Had a few fish jump out of it.
