Frabill® Hiber-Net™ Stowable Nets
I like the net but the tube it was packed in was open and the black handle was scratched up pretty bad

One of the best new ideas in years
I received this as a birthday gift from wife, who got the idea from a fishing buddy she asked for help. It's well made, a very practical idea and appears that it will hold up well, but that's yet to be seen as I just received it recently and have used it that much as of yet.
Not having to have a net under foot in the boat or catching on everything it can, is a terrific solution to an age old problem. I’m sure there will be copycat nets on the market soon (all good ideas are copied, some improved on some just to reduce the price), but for now this is really all you could ask for.

This is a great space saver in the boat. As long as you can master getting the net out of the stow tube you should enjoy this net.
If however, you're smaller or have a trick shoulder, this may not be the best net for you. I have yet to hit this thing with some silicone spray to see if that loosens up the motion but it can be a bit tricky to open at times.

Good Stowable Net
I have had this net for several years. The best part is how easily it stows in the rod box. It does require some effort to open and some care in closing, but those draw backs are well overcome by the stowability. Open it to start the trip.
