Old Salt Series Cast Net
Initially I was real happy with this net. But little by little I got disgusted with it. Even after conditioning the net, it still remained real "puffy". That makes it hard to gather up quickly and starts to hurt your hands after all day use. Then, the braid that keeps the net connected to the lead-line starts unraveling everywhere ! I had to keep repairing it. Also, the main-lines kept slipping under the lead-line causing snags- means you have a gap where your net doesn't gather properly and fish can get out ! I had to constantly sort snags out of the lead-line ! I hadn't abused the net and it was only about 6 weeks old. It's a nice net and one of the most common work horses used. It threw nice, but was a headache in the end. I got a Blue series 7 footer, and couldn't be happier. The Blue series is a little cheaper, but it hangs nice and flat, the lead is well balanced as opposed to the Old Salt, it's real easy to gather up and throws faster and flatter than the Old Salt- go figure ! Maybe I got a bad one ?

Best Cast Net Ever
this is the best cast net i have ever bought...dont let the price turn u off....i bought the cheaper Bass Pro cast net and on the first throw a mulet ripped a hole throught it....now that i bought this one i've been catching fish without any holes or problems....this is a strong durable net and i have caught many fish in it.....the best uses for me are along the beach or on a pier...if u dont have one of these i would highly recommend it

This net has a very good sink rate and it is extremly durable. i have caught Wallaye, bass, baitfish, flounder and one dolphin fish and none of the fish are ever hurt. It even has small netiing so none of the fish can escape. I recamend this net 4 anyone, 2 thumbs up

perfect net for shrimp
This is my third old salt net. They are the best nets. I use it for shrimping. We sew webbing just above the lead line so when you throw it in the water it stays fully open until it hits bottom. Generally shrimping in about 20 feet of water. Would highly recommend this and only this net. The best there is!!!!
