...I agree with you only because I do not feel like losing any friends because I like and prefer stainless......it's a shame others feel something so minute is a justifiable indifference. Smiley

Chris that net you got looks strong but man that boat looks like [shiz]. Clean that thing and cover it. And you call yourself a waterman take pride in your boat not just your net.

Weed,
     I plan on catching some pretty big crabs next year!  Any chance of you making me a net out of 1/4" roundstock, I just am not sure that stainless will be strong enough!

Well, well, well... while I was busy making nets and some crabpots, I missed all the fun! laugh laugh

As shown in page 2, and in Islander's load test pic, you can clearly see that I use 11 gauge smooth bracing wire to reinforce the nets.  They are stout, and do not deform.  Not getting into this pissing contest, but Chris your claim of peelers slipping through is false.  The wire is 1.5" hex, and I there are no "holes" when i'm done.  Nothing gets through.

Your SS net looks fine, but mine are a little deeper and bigger diameter... thus, they hold more crabs.  AND... the crabs pop right you when you dump them in the cull box.

Once again, I stand behind my product, and if I didn't:

a) I wouldn't use one myself
b) I wouldn;t think of selling them to the good folks on this board, and
c)  I sure as [Sam Hill] wouldn't ask for products reviews on it!

Nuff said. Roll Eyes Grin Grin Grin

I think the nets should be made out of mirrored glass, then have Henpot look at them, and if they don't  crack, they pass the endurance test.

I went through the thread and might have missed the answer to these questions...but I'd be curious?

- Does it float or could I alter it so that it floated (I'm a crappy crabber)?

- What is the overall length of the net?

Depending on the answers to those 2 questions - I'm in for a net.....

Thanks.

The wood handled one should float,the ones with a metal handle you could fill will foam to make them float too.I use 3/4 PVc pipe for the handle on my hook pole for pots,even with a piece of 1/4 Stainless 16 in long in 1 end it will still float,sticks strait up in the air with the end about 18 inches out of the water.

Float:  hmmm.. no.  Wood handles, 6' long.  You could attach some type of float to the end of the handle to make it stand upright if dropped.

If crabbers could afford Stainless Steel to make crab pots out of, I believe they would.
