Just used it yesterday stows away nice had a nice crappie at the boat and grabbed the net opened with one hand and was a quick and easy landing. Probably will work great for fish up to 5 lbs. we’ll see.
This net is real light and you can put it on your pac or belt and not notice it there . I really like the wat the flotation part of it is in the top rim and is nice and slim most others look like they put a pool noodle around it . Folds up real easy and you can flip it open with one hand and it will lock into place on the most part it is spring loaded. Rubber net looks like string with rubber coating over it . For the price point this thing is worth it . (Not for big game fishing.)
This is my 2nd fish net and it's perfect for the inshore fishing I do... It's foldable & compact and very solid and it has a very thick mil rubber coated netting and also a thick vinyl frame around the entire frame with foam that will make it float if it gets dropped into the water that I'm actually very surprised at. I didn't expect it to have this level of quality. It's easy to work with one hand when landing a fish. I can keep it folded but it's designed to open up instantly with a flick of my wrist... Very Nice :) Very easy to fold/unfold and lightweight. I LOVE this net！！
Space wise, when compared to other nets, this net exceeds excellence. It’s easy to fold up and store and I absolutely love it. It’s perfect for my boat because my other net is round, doesn’t fold, and takes up too much space. Love the material it’s made of.
I must admit I thought this was going to be tiny when it arrived. but when I opened it up it was perfect and it fits perfectly in my small pack
you will love the soft edges of this and it is very well built
Do not hesitate to purchase this
Love this net! The material used is sturdy and i haven't had any problems with it. I thought it was a great idea to add the float tubes onto it because i don't have to worry about the pole sinking at all. Very well made for the price offered, will buy again if i ever lose or break mine!
I love this net. I have a couple of others but this is my favorite. Im either hiking getting to my favore spots or on canoe. Either way this is light weight, compact and very convenient to cary around. Havent dropped it in the water but have tested it and it floats which makes it perfect on the canoe. Its perfect for almost any fresh water fishing.
Overall it is a very nice, compact net. The rubber net has small holes so no fish will escape, and no fins will be cut. It feels quite sturdy and is pretty light weight as well. The best part is how small it folds up to, about 4 inches by 16 inches. It is also short heightwise so it will easily fit in a backpack or stowed on any boat. A really nice net for a competitive price.
I had already been using one of Plusinno's other foldable landing nets from my kayak, and it's worked very well for me. I found, though, that I also could use one when fishing from piers and other elevated positions where the elevation not only risks losing the fish, but more importantly puts undue stress on larger fish due to their weight pulling against the hook while being lifted.
I purchased this net to help with that situation and put it to good use today. My son and I met a friend at a local catch-and-release pond and, between the three of us, we were able to land about 20 fish of various species...large mouth bass, blue cats, perch, and crappie. Some of the bass and all of the cats were large enough that the net proved extremely useful, especially since the blue cats have spines in their dorsal and pectoral fins.
This net is a nice piece of engineering. It has a very compact footprint when folded but expands to a very high volume when unfolded. It's also pleasantly stable and rigid unlike some other nets which feel like they're ready to fold again. The telescopic handle is great for when you're several feet above or otherwise away from the water. The coarse-grained mesh is made out of thick, sturdy plastic such that it doesn't get tangled in the line or the fish too badly. I've used more fine-grained nets that sometimes have to be cut to extract a fish safely.
I strongly recommend this net to anyone looking for a way to land their fish in a manner that's better for both the fisher and the fish.
I really think this a spectacular fishing net. The netting is nice and tough so it's not going to break easily and it conveniently folds up and has a belt hook to strap it on for easy carry. This is going to be perfect to take out with me in my hiking/fishing trips since it's a great size and very convenient to carry around. I have to say I'm extremely pleased with this net!
Great for catching sandcrabs on the beach. It will filter through medium size rocks, shells, smaller crabs.
Expands and collapses which is great for when I want to pack light on a fishing trip. The net is made out of very soft (maybe silicone) material which will not hurt the fish.
The size is satisfying, shot with a letter size paper. It is small enough to put in a backpack. When opened, I think it fits any normal size fish. The structure feels strong and I love it.
Ive had the other plussino net that folds out and extends, but does not fold like this one to minimize carry gear when hiking. I like this net cause it is portable, and it fits perfect on the side of my ozark trail fishing backpack. Material feels great! Have yet to try it! Colorway is awesome as well!
I was super impressed by the design and portability of the net. It can be easily strapped or placed in a bag.
Best of all it floats so you have a better chance of retrieving it if it get loose.
I would buy again. Easy to unfold in a hurry and lands bass and catfish without harming them.
Just like the description says…this net actually FLOATS!!! Love it!! Sometimes when reaching out into the water the net may drop and I’ve lost quite a few nets over the years. This time with the floating net it will be impossible to loose this! Aside from that, it is very compact and easy to store. Build quality is excellent as well! Definitely recommend!!
I got the chance to use the net on a snapper fishing trip last week. What I like about the net is that the handle folds, making it low profile and easy to carry. I was able to land fish and not get my hooks stuck in the net which is a big plus in my book. The mesh of the net has a rubber coating on it so it doesn't tangle with hooks or harm any fish you want to release. It's light weight and very strong, making it ideal for wade fishing. For the price you can't beat it.
Great net, folding feature works great. Love the rubber coating on the net, great for the catch and release fisherman who try to practice the best fish care.
The net itself is not very big, but its the perfect size for fish in my area. I am very pleased with my purchase. I own other Plusinno gear, and it is all good quality for the price.
I bought this net due to its advertised compact features. It was well worth it. My son loves to use this net to catch frogs and land fish. The handles collapses and folds in making it easy to attach to the outside our our fishing back pack.
Durable, compact, and the rubber coated netting is great for minimizing snagged hooks and tangles when landing fish
okay so I got this net because I'm a "let's go fishing" out of the blue kind of guy and im not a fan of having to carry a long net.
First off, it FOLDS!! which is awesome in my opinion. Sure it won't hold super huge fish but that's not what I'm catching here in AZ. I mostly wanted it for trout season because the weather is much cooler and enjoyable.
Net feels really sturdy and its light weight which is awesome! It doesn't stay locked while the handle is folded but it's not an issue for me. I havent had a chance to use it yet, but will edit after this weekend if i catch any trout.
I have used this to bring in small fish up to some really big ones. Either way, this net handled the job. Because of the material, any hook that caught any of the holes was easy to remove. Because it folds I am able to store it on the outside of my back pack. I think my next purchase will be the telescopic version of this same net. I will not go fishing without it.
I love almost everything about this net. The only draw back is the magnetic clip at the end. I was fishing in some nasty weather and when I checked, the net had come loose in the water. I looked for quite a while, but all I had left was the clip and the magnet. I did like it some much, I bought another one. This one already has a safety line connected between the clip and the net!! Let hope this works and this net last a long time. Great net for the price.... plus a piece of good lightweight rope!!! Maybe that could be an added feature for a redesign.
Great, much better than any other I've had.
Using it for kayak fishing, it fits in my rod holders, its not too big or long or heavy, its not as small as a fly fishing net, and the silicone I think is softer on the fish than any other material I know of in a net like this one the fish.
So far have only caught 4 trout with it, my lures haven't gotten stuck in the webbing yet, all fish released without issues, only a few scales came off which is much better than the old scratchy waxed nylon net I used to use that would take off a lot of scales and scratch the fish.
I love this little net, I had one before but I lost it in the woods so I bought another ! Good price considering those fancy wooden framed silicone nets can go over $100 CAD. It's small enough I can keep it attached to my vest and it doesn't get in the way too much. And it gets even better - i didn't know about the magnetic detaching feature at first and when I did discover it, it blew my mind lol. The magnet is pretty strong too, so it only detaches when you give it a good tug, or it gets hooked on a tree going through the woods which is what happened to my first net, but thats my own fault. GREAT NET !
Pretty sturdy and assembles extremely easy. Will come apart for transport or easier storage on a boat. Handle is made from light blue aluminum and the foam grip should be easy to hang on to with wet hands. Net opening is a good size for most fish and should work very well for catching flying bugs like butterflies or even lighting bugs. I was able to scoop up several minnows out of my pond with It and even a couple bluegill. I would definitely recommend this net to anybody that needs a quality net that won’t take up a lot of room at an affordable price. In fact this one, when disassembled fits completely inside my Cabelas tackle bag that I use on the boat. I can see my son using it when he goes fishing with his friends.
I ordered this net for my grandkids :). I have the Adult PLUSINNO net, which I LOVE so I figured I'd get the kids their own. I like the rainbow coloring so it will appeal to my grandson AND granddaughter (yes... they both fish). The net is a little deeper than I noticed online, so that's a good thing and the mesh is a good quality strand. This net is a 2 piece screw in, meaning you screw the handle on to the net. The handle gets very tight and there is no wobble whatsoever, so the machining is spot on. It's also very light so the kids will be able to use it very easily. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and I'm going to go become their hero right now and give it to them :) Tight Lines!
This net is excellent for kids and adults that are looking to be able to catch minnows and baby panfish first bait or even for landing panfish or trout. It breaks down really nicely so it easily fits in a standard size backpack. The net is heavier than it looks because of its all metal construction outside of the joint but it is still plenty light for backpacking trips. So far it seems plenty durable catching smaller baitfish but I have not tried to land anything larger than a bluegill with it. I would have absolutely loved this net when I was a kid trying to catch frogs and snakes and turtles.
This was a great durable net. Stopped working as a telescoping handle almost immediately, which was unfortunate, but still worked for our purposes.
Love this net. My kids love carrying their own net and Plusinno collapsible fishing pole. It’s easy and light but still able to get the job done. Another way to keep the kids involved fishing.
This net is high quality and a great price! t's both lightweight and very durable. I've been fishing with it and it can easily handle trout, bluegill, bass, and even carp. The finish on the wood makes it smooth and comfortable. It also came with different straps and attachments so that you can strap it to anything that you would like. There is also a wrist band so that you can't lose the net when you're bending over to scoop the fish. I'm very happy I got this net and it will serve me for many years of fishing to come! Overall, I would highly recommend this net to anyone who is looking for a great quality net for a very affordable price!
This is a great quality net. I can't wait to use it for trout season! It looks extremely well crafted and I'm very impressed!
I appreciate the rubber style net as my lures won’t get caught. The rubber also helps keep the protective slime on fish. It’s lightweight and sturdy. I put 10 pounds of weight and it held well ! Would recommend !!
