    Hey! I just bought my first castnet and something is not right. Figured someone from BOC could help me out. Seems like the top ring should be stationary? But it slides down the net! As for taking it back, well, I got it on EBay. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I take it you mean the black ring at the top where the mono lines go thru.
    It is suppose to move Rex. Nothing wrong with the net from what I can tell.
    It can be slid down to keep the lines untangled if needed. Some have this extra ring and some dont.

    When you pull on the rope, that ring will slide down. That is what closes the bottom of the net. If you pick the net up by the yellow ring, the bottom of the net will be open. If you hold the black ring, or the rope, the bottom of the net will be closed. Did it come with the instructions? That looks like the standard wally world 4' cast net.

    Thanks Grimpuppy! It was a Bass Pro product. Been practicing throwing but have not had a chance to put it to work. Thanks again, I`ll keep trying!
