Tiercel

A New Lightweight Net

Recommended Posts

After making up the cheap nets I worked out that I still had enough twine on the ball to make a 25 yard net. I made the net with a 4.25 inch mesh 13 meshes deep in the body of the net, plus selvedges giving a 14 mesh 59.5" deep net.

 

I used the twine off ebay I have found it a lovely twine to knit with strong, slightly stiff but takes a single knot well. I would say that it needs to be despooled correctly otherwise you could get twists in it.

Why I made the net god knows as I dont really need it, I suppose it will go in the bag with the others never to be used.

Looks nice chap. I think I had some samples from the same seller on ebay a while ago, I would be interested to see how it performs. Mr Goodcat.

Never had a rabbit escape from a poke net till last week,it hit it fine and pursed, by the time i got over the fence, it had escaped, unusual for this type of net.

I looked at this twine, is it thinner/lighter than agouti's longnet twine ?

If it is thinner It is only Mlcrons. It is a lot less furry though. Incidently this net is now for sale in thé classifieds.
