Promar ProMesh, a Durable, Lightweight Multi-Species Landing
Catch and Release Friendly Net (continued)
The Promar's frame, handle,
and thin rubber mesh netting has all survived throughout our tests but a few screws
that were used didn't hold up to the saltwater environment and has started to
corrode. For the LN-652, because of its size you can be sure that some anglers will want to
use it for saltwater game. I would like to see this net use more corrosion
screws that will not corrode overtime if rinsed regularly.

Ergonomics: Landing net
ergonomics might not seem important since you're not holding a net all day long
but it is those precious few seconds when you need the net where ergonomics can
make a difference. The Promar ProMesh does take ergonomics into consideration. It's built from lightweight aluminum, if you're fishing alone
you will be able to handle the net with one hand. The handle is telescoping,
allowing you to adjust the length to your needs and can be done quickly with a
quick twist to release and another turn to lock. And lastly, the handle's far
end has a lengthy portion covered with comfortable foam which is both easy to grab and won't
slip when wet.

Application & Price:
As mentioned earlier we used the Promar LN-652 on multiple species from delicate
trout to hearty bass to rockcod and the net performed well with all species mentioned.
In my tests I found that it can handle small fish and larger species up to 25
pounds without any issues. Promar also makes
the ProMesh in smaller sizes for those not planning on needing a net of a
large size as in the LN-652. And price wise the ProMesh is right on, $59.99 for
the large size with solid construction and features.
