Saw these on Midwest crappie. They looked good as the mesh was small and didn't appear to tangle the hook. Not very expensive so I was wondering if anyone has tried them. If not these can you recommend another brand. Thanks

I've been using these nets for years.. Extending handles with the rubber mesh is the ticket. Very good company to deal with also..

I saw these on Midwest Crappie also. I'm also interested. I wonder how long the adjustable handle will extend?

Thanks. That should do the trick for me.

We've had ours for a couple of years now. It's light and easier to pull in fish when it's fully extended. The old net feels a lot heavier now that we've used the Ego.

I have the Ego Reach, Coated Nylon fine mesh bag. I think they are 52" in the collapsed position and 8'6" in the extended position.

I've been quite happy with it and would recommend it. Its a good product at a fair price. I did add some flotation to the handle in case it goes overboard, as the Reach nets don't float. Some of their other models do.

Ego net is the real deal. Lighter, stronger, dont get hooks all tangled up. Reaches 8'6" I think full extended. Telescoping. Easy to use. Doesnt tear up easily. Just my opinion.

Now if you happen to get your chain rope tangled around it while trying to land a 4lb crappie you might get mad at it. You might also throw all your minnows in the water, your rods in the water, and throw a screaming, cussing hissy fit in front of other anglers too. But tis not the nets fault..............

Good net but they don't float. Don't ask how I know.

Does the end cap on the handle come off where you could fill it with some spray flotation?

It's a little easier to cut off a 1 foot section from one of those child's noodles that you can get at Freds and hold it on with a zip tie. Then you can use the rest of the noodle to store your pre-tied minnow or jig rigs.
