Ego Reach is what I have and really like it. Soon after I bought mine I replaced the net with a ghost rubber bag. Crappie tend to run from a black bag and hooks love one that ain't rubber.

Alpha hawk, that is a nice looking net. When I looked it up it looks like it cost around 200.00. Is that right?

Jenko is what I use and I love it! If you fish by yourself itís even better because you can use it one handed easily

Itís around 130 bucks delivered....but yes expensive. This was just to give an idea of what is out there. There are several of those types of nets on eBay. And there is another thread somewhere on crappie.com talking about a similar net. While it is a lot of money it has been one of the best purchases I have made. I got a rubber basket off of eBay to put on there. I had an EGO Slider for years. But got to be too heavy for me and the slide was wearing out again.....they replaced the handle once.......so I just ordered this one.

I prefer shorter nets and to net the fish at the boat. Actually, I don't lift the fish out of the water in the net, rather lift with the pole and use the net as a safety in case the line breaks of the fish manages to throw the hook. This way I don't have to un-hook the net too.

I have a Jenko and it is fantastic. Very light and easy to handle.

Ego replaced my handle also. I tried to order one and they sent it under warranty. Great company.

Here is my opinion. I've owned Ego for some 8 or so years maybe longer. some of the other brands are lighter and I owned them before ego but when hoisting heavier fish with one and and holding the rod with the other hand the nets have bent in half. The Ego's problem is I've had 2 and both after a few years the extendable models have locked up and had to purchase another. I'll still stick with Ego just think quality control needs to fix this problem.

None, net is an emergency tool like a fire extinguisher for me.. Except when pulling cranks / jigs then its an ego reach or ego slider of you got a net man on the slider. Jenko I'm just trying out, so can't comment fully on it yet.

I did exactly what Alphahawk said after his review. The net is phenomenal. I was nervous at first but am completely convinced the Japanese firm is first rate. They track the shipment for you and are very precise on every aspect. The net is light, easy to deploy and extends as far out as anyone would want. And yes, it will retrieve a 4 pound bass.

Glad youíre liking the net. I think it is the Tokyo Trout Club that did a video on that net retrieving about a 15 pound carp out of the water with it.

Snagged a Jenko on sale at BPS a while ago, and like it fine. I can easily handle it fishing by myself.
