  • short landing net section. Any good?

    Hi all,
    Does anyone use one of those landing nets that have the very short detachable end section that you can slip off to tranfer the fish into the keepnet rather than lifting the whole length of the handle in the air.
    Is it a Gimmick or a very useful addition to the handle.?

    Cheers,
    catch
    T.

        I used to have one (A Maver). It broke on about the 2nd time that I used it. Haven't bought one since. A gimmick if you ask me. Also, I don't see too many people using them on the bank.

            I have one, excellent for venues like rolfs, where you have to weigh and return fish over a certain size, easier than having a full pole swinging about when you're running up and down the bank

              I have owned two over the years and both have not lasted the distance. They have either cracked just past the thread.

              Luckily I have always carried a spare handle and have now given up on the short mugger sections unless they become super strong. I have resulted to using a take apart handle and at places like Rolf's just take off they back two sections and take to the scales.

                  You could use your current handle with one of those pro logic quick releasr thingies, apparently they are up to the job.

                    The pro logics are great. One other thing is that once they are screwed on tight, with a pair of pliers or small spanner, it means that you don't damage the landing net thread or get the thread coming away from the carbon as has happened to me often.

                      Not strong enough for a landing net especially the ally ones tend to twist under pressure have some made from stainless steel but I wouldn't use these for a landing net Ok for keep nets and other accessories.

                        I have used one(the proper pro logic) on my landing net for 6 months now and its fine. Its the medium size.
                        I used the have the ones you mentioned and I agree they were crap and wouldn't trust them on my landing net.
                        But the new ones are great.
                        My biggest fish lifted out with the pro logic was 11lb, which was weighed after.
                        Each to there own though I suppose

                          I've had no problems with pro logics at all, the medium ones, use them for everything, bank sticks, keepnets and Landing net, Many double figure fish on them.
