5.0 out of 5 stars every team should have one, May 23, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bownet Big Mouth Net ( BOWBM ) (Sports)
I love this net. My fellow coaches love this net. Our players love this net. Other teams are envious, have since bought this, and now love this net. I have hit into this net myself with baseballs and can attest to its strength and stay-upright-capabiility. I can set this net up in less than 2 minutes like the videos on the manufacturer's web site has, and my kids can even do it by themselves. It is an indispensable tool for every softball / baseball team, and much better than that blue circular one that all the travel teams seem to have. At least this one always stays up and doesn't sag over time as one of our coaches have pointed out with his. The manufacturers make nets of all sizes and sports, so there's probably one for you. I prefer this one for soft toss rather than the one they promote for soft toss (doesn't have the big mouth but more of a flat screen).

Two things to look out for:
- be careful with kids sticking their helmets into the net to retrieve balls out after soft toss hitting; their helmets can snag onto the netting and can tear up and fray the net
- buy a cheap rubber mallet or hammer and maybe some better ground stakes and keep them in the bag with this net; with the lack of rainfall in the Houston area, the ground is very hard and difficult to drive the 2 included stakes into, which kept bending all sorts of ways but straight
