Hi Dave,

The screw fixing seems to be working loose regularly and is now taped into position. It did seem and indestructible piece of kit but maybe this is just an exception.


Thanks

I didn't like the Drennan twist lock so I purchased a Drennan series 7 3.3m extra strong carp match 3 section take apart landing net pole, what I liked was I could use my small pan for chub fishing at 3.3 m and use the Gardner specialist pan on the two bottom stiffer sections. The pole has two brass ferrules so I simply don't carry the top section when I go barbel fishing. Generally find 2.3m enough.

I've been using the Korum Latex Barbel Spoon 27" Net for the last 2 sessions. Found the grub screw got a bit loose so i tightened them up and put a spot of super glue on each one. I've found the net very strong even catches it on the thorns that is hard enough to rip trousers and with a good shake, it's dry. The 27 inch version that i have has the same net area as a 42 inch triangle net. I have found it large enough for the size of Chub and Barble where i fish

I fully appreciate the shake and dry merits of latex nets plus the advantage of them being less inclined to snag etc, but some of those that I've looked at just don't seem deep enough to retain a decent barbel in for recovery.
Depends on the bank features of course.
I brought a Wychwood 28" extendible rover last year for rolling and wading which incorporated a latex shallow net. Good piece of kit, but even the tackle shop owner agreed that the net was too shallow for barbel retention, so we fitted a deeper standard mesh ( for no extra fee) before buying,..

The chap even threw in the original net for nothing,.. so anyone interested in an unused 28" latex spoon ( net only) who wants to collect,.. you can have it .
