    Which net?

    Looking at buying a new net the ones that I'm looking at are the frabill 9530 conservation and the frabill 8425 power catch big game. Both are 32x41 hoop just looking for some feed back if anyone is using either of these or recommend one of them.
    Thanks

    I've used both extensively but won't use the 9530 any more. The netting is thin enough that if a fish rolls in the net and the hooks grab the net, you'll spend a good amount of time untangling. The net bag of the Power Catch Big Game 8425 is coated, thus eliminating this problem.

    I was actually around a booth at the show Saturday with the Power Catch (which I use) and the Big Kahuna (which I think is too big for my boat--a Ranger 620 FS) Honestly, I think we get a little out of reason with the whole giant net thing. OK, OK Stop Now....you're thinking Marty's not exactly catching a fifty every two hours! Yea, I'm not, but I get one here and there and when I do, the Power Catch is still like a massive live well with enough room for two if your partner gets one too!

    Thanks. The 8425 is the one that I was leaning toward because of the net material as you mentioned.The 9530 is only appealing to me because it has a deep bag and my boat sits high in the water just want to make sure that I can have the net on the edge and the fish in the water. Thanks

    Both are great recommendations.
