"It works great."

This net is well made, sturdy handle and large enough to catch fish easily. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. Great product to use in a kiddie pool! And they are not meant to scoop heavy things. This net is well made, sturdy handle and large enough to catch fish easily. The plastic handles are not very tough. Catching things I can barely see with my eyes.

YakGear Final Thoughts

"But it works."

But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint. Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. I bought these to use when I am sitting with my child in her kiddie pool. They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value.

"I love it."

The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. My husband uses these nets to dip trash from our fountains! Just what we needed to filter hair& gunk from our drinkwell pet water fountain! Never have to put your hand in the tank. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season.

"Got here on time."

I use these for a bait net for my boat. Otherwise no issues with this product. Excellent net, very happy with it. The plastic handles are not very tough. I have a 29G and a 20G long shrimp tank. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. He now has three in the bank for when the first one is worn out!

"Not cheap but good price."

They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. The birds come for drinks and baths. This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for. A bit heavy, but im small, it is strong and perfect for our pond clearing.

"I really love it."

Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. Still, a good value if you need really small cheap nets. I'm updating my review because I just bought a second one of these. I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy.

"So far I have no cons!"

So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. The rod extends out like an antenna so you don't have to bend down while cleaning. The rod extends out like an antenna so you don't have to bend down while cleaning. So between feathers, bird seed and leaves this net has been wonderful! Mesh size is great for collecting leaves.

"They're perfect."

We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all. They were so nice and STURDY that I ordered 4 more. Just wish it was a bit longer but it works for my size tank. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! It has worked very well for me and I especially like the small size of it.

"These worked great."

I suspect that it will just if you don't. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net. Great nets for the money they will last Awhile. This will make keeping my breeding tanks organized so much easier. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect.

"Octagonal tank."

My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. I was initially scared of the other reviews, seeing how theirs had rusted. And that extends time between water changes. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint.

"Nice net at a good price."

Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. These are your regular quality fish nets, pretty much just what you'd expect. Excellent net, very happy with it. The birds come for drinks and baths. The net is very soft and it has a nice wooden handle. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net.

Eventually I am sure they will rust or break. The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Nothing is going to escape this net! The plastic handles are not very tough. They were so nice and STURDY that I ordered 4 more. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for.

"Got here on time."

It's all about having the right tools! Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. These nets work great and I have only needed the one so far.

They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price! I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. Probably the best thing I have gotten!

"Turns out, I LOVE them."

Like the radio antennae on an old car. Wish they had them in more than one size though. I would have rated 4 stars, but it's my fault for not looking at the dimensions. I needed something bigger, stronger, and with a fine mesh. I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for.
