    Which is a better cast net a nylon or mono? Theres no much price diffrence in each and i would like to have the toughest one i can get. I have to sew mine up about 1 time every month now and i need to buy me a new one. My cheap 6ft from walmart last me about year and half need some ideas on which type to buy when i get me a new one.

    I like the mono way better. i think it's alot tougher and easier to fix if it does rip. The blues nets at walmart are the best i've found.

    I take a few 1/2 oz. sinkers and add to mine. makes it sink much faster and catch alot more bait.

    Nylons are for women to wear on their legs, not cast nets. I talked to a lot of salties and catfishermen before buying my mono net, all preferred mono. One friend had a nylon, but it never dried out right, so after I told him about my mono net, he got him one, can't find a happier netter.

    I have to go against the rest on this one. I fish in an area with a LOT of rocks and such, and the nylon holds up a lot better, at least for me.

    I used that blue mono one from Wal Mart, and it lasted 3 trips. My current nylon one has lasted 6 and is still ready to go.

    Mono just seems to perform better.

    Mono for sure, the nylon nets are harder to get to open, and dont sink as fast.

    I heard From A Good Friend Of Mine That The Blue Color Isn't Reflective Like The Clear, So The Fish Can't See It Coming As Easily.

    Well you can get the mono or the nylon ones from walmart from 3.5 foot to 5 foot. Hope this helps and it is much cheaper on shipping also.

    I always found, that the nylon ones snagged on things toooooo easily and would tear.
    So, To answer you question... Mono is the only way to go, sinks faster, less visible, less hang-ups, doesn't mildew and, easier to maintain(repair).
