EZ Cast. My throwing shoulder is also pretty jacked up. If I can get a full "spin" when casting it's pretty easy on my shoulder. I throw a 6' and an 8' and my right shoulder is pretty much made of hamburger meat. I can't throw them all day, but enough to keep us in bait. I sweetin' my spot with a couple handfulls of dry cat food whenever I can. Make every cast count, ya' know?

I guess the Lord needed a fishing buddy more than me.

You may consider removing every third weight from your net. It will slow the sink rate down, but may be worth a shot.

Not sure if same or not. EZ Cast has an aluminum ring in the center you throw it by. Once you buy it, if the net gets messed up beyond repair, the ring can be taken off and put on any other net.

Please do not buy one of those nets with that aluminum ring, they only make life more difficult. I would just go down on the weight. Betts makes really good affordable nets.

X 2 on this ^^^^^^ I had one thinking I needed it. I still had tacos. I bought a cheep net the other day at Wal-Mart (holes in my other net) I had no problem throwing it. Other than is has some kind of steal not lead so it sinks slow. That might be the way to go if your net is to heavy. They have 4 5 and 6 ft. But it will sink slower than lead and some of the bait will get away. I am looking at a Old Salt 8 ft but its hard to turn lose of $150 that may get hung up. I may just add lead to the cheep net and try it

I like the Mako cast nets. I throw a 7ft, 3/8 mesh with 1lb per foot. I have never had a problem with it sinking to slow. My daughter throws a 5ft with ease.
