Landing net bags - PVC coated vs. rubber?

Recommended Posts

I plan to upgrade my old boat net with a new bag. Both PVC coated and rubber types are said to be less damaging to the fish (I mostly C&R) and less prone to tangling hooks and tackle. Prices are about the same. This shows the different options:

Any pros or cons from people that have used either one?

rubber nets are shallow and are very heavy. not something you want to use if you do any fishing alone or fish for large fish. the coated nets are the way to go in my opinion. I use to use a frabil true trax with coated net and it worked pretty good. now I use the ego s2 slider with the coated net. I have the largest net with the handle that extends from 48" to 108". but they have another handle that I think extends from 29" to 60". the mesh is coated making them resistant to hooks but not hook proof.

 

egos2slider.com and look at the s2 nets not the s1 that doesn't have extendible handles.

Stay away from the Bass Pro nets with the gold handle. Had an early version and it worked well. Bought a new one this year and it is awful. Hooks as well as fish jaws can't resist it. Total garbage! The only saving grace is that it was inexpensive. Still an absolute waste of money.

if you don't get nets thats coated its a nightmare with treble hooks.
