Rated 2 out of 5 by MrChesterfield Does not fit the hand
I read all the reviews. I was encouraged enough to buy the Frabill and save the money over the more expensive versions. But now, it's going back.
At issue is this: The handle is is 1-1/2" wide and 5/8" thick and while the edges are eased, it's blocky. There is not comfortable way to grasp this thing. I have XL hands and getting a good grip on the thing is tough. It's shame because the fit and finish of the net is very good. It is, as others have said, on the heavy side. But the snag-free netting is excellent.
I want to like this net. But if I am going to have a tool, I need it to fit the way I work.

This is an excellent catch and release net that performs just as well as the higher price models. The only problem with this net is that it is very heavy and that is why I gave it four stars instead of five.

My husband has thoroughly enjoyed this net, which I purchased for him as a gift. His fishing buddies have all commented on how nice it is. Great quality for a great price.

I recently got to use the trout net and it worked great. No hooks were caught in the netting.
