    Has anyone tried this?
    Im fair at throwing a castnet. I dont get that nice flat circle everytime I throw it, but I do get it enough to catch bait heh..
    The thing that intrigues me the most about this thing is it LOOKS like you will stay dry, which getting soaked from throwing my net is my biggest problem heh.. Nothing like getting soaked then sitting in the boat all nite in 40 degree weather..

    click the "Throwing instructions" picture to see it in actual use... Looks like it makes it pretty easy and keeps ya from getting wet.. Also looks like it would making throwing from a boat alot easier.....

    $35 seems kinda high to me for a piece of plastic, but I may be interested if it kept me dry and a BOC member gave it a thumbs up...

    The video makes it look easy. But it looks like it would break over time.

    Not sure how fragile it would be... I wonder too, if it ever hangs your net up and not let it close.....

    Im hoping somebody out there has got one and could chime in ....
