The little mono nets at academy are your best bet.

I use the nets from academy. I prefer the blue ones. They have the neoprene wrist strap, are a little heavier, and seem to be stronger. They don't always have them.

I throw a lot......the most important thing to look at is how much weight per radius foot. It is the weight that makes it come open and sink faster. I like Betts but I also prefer the pro series because they have more weight. JMHO

I throw a 7' net with 1.5 lbs per radius foot. It opens perfectly and sinks really fast. Last three trips I threw the net no more than 4 times per trip.

Try the Super Spreader GS-1000. Great value, super strong, 1 lb. weight per radius foot and the wrist cuff. Super Spreader has other options too. Check it out!
