Thought I would post an initial review of the Chris Brown landing net that I have just received. Note that I have not used it yet, so this is purely cosmetic and covering the transaction process. I will try and update once I have actually used it.

My main reason for posting was that I couldn't actually find much information about this net, certainly not many pictures.

Starting off with the order process - I decided that I wanted different cosmetics to standard. It looked a bit too green for me, so when I ordered, I added a note asking if different whipping (blue) was an option. Soon after ordering, I got a call from Chris (which I missed unfortunately) saying that it was not a problem, but the stickers would be green. I decided that Black tipped with green, rather than green tipped with black was the way forward. No problem - Delivery within 7-10 days which it was!

So, on to the landing net. The pole looks like this at one end -



And this at the other -



The knurled aluminum stopper unscrews to allow the 3' extension to be added. Note that the 6' carbon pole is fixed to the spreader block, so only 6' or 9' options. See below for the extension ready to be added



The net has a wire rather than cord and the arm have rounded ends to spread the load. The wire does look quite thin...



Finally the arms that go onto the spreader block. These are lined with metal.



The net seems easy enough to put together and the pole is much thicker than standard poles. You can tell it is an "artisan" net. I am looking forward to using it to see if it lives up to the hype!
