i would say a quick set bud but stay away from the 4 z nylon start from 6z but the best longnet i seen was a hemp made one but hemp are ok if your willing to hang them up to dry everytime you work them all the best Smile

tru very good to have mate ie ferreting or out at night great to have plus brill saves on purse nets when your round a warren just stake out let ferrets work freely if your working with terriers or lurchers great pushing the rabbits into the net great days sport Smile

I preferred the 4z as it seems to catch better than the 6z,watch rabbits at night through an NV sight,I have seen them bounce off 6z's a few times,horses for courses though,also remember a 6z is heavier to carry though they dont pick up as much crap as a 4z,its personal preference really.

Theres loads of DVD's currently available showing rabbits hitting Long-nets in the dark,watch them,if the net hasnt enough bagging the bunnies bounce off,aslo watch the ones that show a rabbit caught by a foot and struggle which bags it up,4z can and will do that as it snags everything Very Happy

you right there mate 4z snaggs everythink ok setting on clear field but if your working fields with loads of snaggs i stay away best to set your pegs on a angle so the net slowps give more bagging but make sure you through the bagging forward so when rabbit runs it will get tangled before it hits the net more chance of getting him then Smile

I do set at an angle so he is already treading on mesh when he passes the top line,4z is still my choice however as it snags better and just seems to hand better,and thats what we are attempting to immitate,natures webs,most of the good netters I have met if given a choice of commercial netting only would plump for the smaller z of the two.

Thats only on very uneven ground,I bought one when it first ever came out from KP&S nets,keith pryor was the first one to offer such nets commerically,I took the line off eventually and used it for a gill-net,I just prefer normal lines but its each to their own and personal preference,but 100 yards of lead-core line is quite heavy.

it makes it easyer to use if its wound on to an old hose pipe wheel,soon as the wind piks up i have an exerlent place to go, fireman and i will be doing it,i wouldnt be surprised if on a black windy night,we take 200 + rabbits in a matter of a few hour,my dogs broke into my shed and made a bed out of mine so im down to 2 25 yrds and a couple of gate nets,but steve still has 100 mtrs intact,its a lot easyer when theres 2 of you setting them in the dark wind and rain, bounce

They ripped it up,i've cut my 100 yd'r in half and have found them to be much more use to me when ferreting and might even half one of the halfs as a lot of my ferreting is on hedges and i'll just use 2 25yd'rs through the hedge either end of the burries sort of thing,not until i've helped ooty on his 200+ mission though scratch .have been to where he is on about and there are a lot of rabbits there,over whelming numbers everywhere and bagsy i aint carrying them either mate lol! .2 50 yrd quick sets will see you covering all your needs smashy,will cost a few quid though.

that seems alot is that the field covered or what lol .
well think i work alone .
iam hopfully well thinking off,
one i am going to use ferreting
as iam tottally wound up with setting nets alone
and nothing down .so quicker to net i was thinking
even some moon light ferreting.
then theirs a few spots to mind i could hit. not for the 200 as such as theirs the walking,
the carrying then carrying back to car lol and i dont fancy dragging all them in one run.
so 25yd what we talking 75ft ? and setting up then back in at night
full moon where i shouldnt and oddd night when i travel to where i can .

always wanted to make my own,one of those thing i never got round to learning yet,you should smashy,its more fun than purse nets,the rabbits think they've got away then suddenly the net wipes the smile off there faces to a more distorted kind of taught look,can be amuseing to see the look on there faces when there in the net Shocked scratch F,M,instead of cutting another one of yours you may aswel use mine.im going to need another long one,we will need at least 200yrds for this place, Very Happy

i got my long net from arther carter but after buying a lamp from him id never give him another penny,can be a good idea to go longnetting with someone thats done a bit of it before,also a lot of people have there own way of doing things,those quiskset ones look handy,anyone use one os know anyone that uses one as i will have to have a new net at some point pirat

Know what you meen smashy but you soon use it up mate,next time your stood around a warren pace it out,you want a bit of room between net and holes so the rabbits hit it better,you may be surprised how much you use.Remember to bring it over then oot's and i'll sort it out mate. scratch
