Default Folding landing nets

Looking for a folding landing net that can be easily taken in and out of my storage compartment for bass fishing. Have found a few online and just got the Frabill Power Stow. For the $ I'm not impressed. Anyone found anything better?

The StowMaster saltwater series looks nice and has good reviews, kind of high.

My experience is good with telescoping nets, but not with folding ones.

Let us know if you have a good experience with a folder.

Default Net

That's the one I'm looking for. A buddy had one a few years back from West Marine, that thing was awsome, used it to net snapper off the front of the offshore boat.

I've had two types over the years. Long ago I had a "Master's Net" that folds completely and can fit in a rod holder. Works ok as long as the fish isn't too big. Still available on eBay. I use a Frabill Power Stow net now. it folds in half so will fit in a compartment but not nearly as compact as the Master's Net. But it is much stronger, lands bull reds easily.

I have the folding Frabill net and it works. It's not very sturdy but if you get the fish in there even if it collapses you'll still more than likely get it in.

The only thing I don't like about it is when you're in a hurry trying to open it can be difficult and it bites your hand if you get it just right.

Folds an fits in a small compartment though.
