Evans, The mono is my choice I have 2.5 ft. , 5.0 ft. and 8.0 ft. and they are all mono they are easier to throw and fairly easy to repair when you rip them. They also sink faster.let me be the person my dog thinks I am.

It looks like I am the odd man out . I like nylon best . I have both ,but I use the nylon the most. You should have 2 nets , a riped net can turn a good trip badDale Finney , Wamego Kansas, Joined the BOC Dec, 2001

mono or nylon?
Mono..all the way..no doubt about it. I have only used castnets for the last couple years and have used them a lot. Wore out a couple mono's, then tried a nylon. HATED that thing about the 3rd time i threw it..will never buy another one again.

I like the clear mono nets, myself. The blue ones are good but I think the fish can see them two well and escape(depending on the spieces). The nylon onesseem to catch every snag within 50ft of them, LOL!!! I will never use another one of those again!!!
