Net Constuction Information

Nets   and cages are available in a wide range of sizes and weights. Most netting is constructed in a 13/4" square mesh. The better tunnels are bound with a strong poly rope. Steel rings are in the top four corners and equally divided through the length of the net. The best tunnels are enclosed on all four sides and top, with a six foot entry on one corner. Cages may be available in BLACK, GREEN OR BLUE netting.

Custom made nylon batting tunnels are the highest quality money can buy. The best cages and nets are made of Industrial grade nylon and can be used indoors or outdoors. Nylon nets have the durability to be used by the most powerful hitters. The better net companies have in-house manufacturing capabilities and can build nets of a particular size, mesh, and strength.
