Just wanted to let everybody know that these are some good nets that are easy to throw. Its a 4'er and has the aluminum ring at the top. I ordered one out of cabelas the other day and got it yesterday. Went out today after watching the instructional dvd that came with it. After about four throws, I had it opening up pretty good every time. I had best luck actually using the two handed method shown on the dvd and got to where the net was opening perfect almost every time. Didn't catch any bait, but it wasn't for lack of trying. For $30 this thing seems pretty hard to beat.
