Our Premium Handmade Nets.
The cord used in our nets is a custom cord specifically made for us - to our specifications. It is an extremely high quality, pre-shrunk nylon braided cord with a plaited multi-strand core. Being 'pre-shrunk' means the net does not change whether it is wet or dry (that is of course after it has fully tightened).
All our Nets are handmade here by us. Each net is made using a single length (approximately 7.5 metres ) of cord. They are made specifically to suit our racket heads. Graham has been making nets for more than 20 years, Mike for 13 years, Caitlyn & Karen for almost 5 years. Over the years, Graham has made several modifications/improvements to the original pattern taught to him by Steve Stuart, which was based on the net pattern developed by Eddie Curtis. Each and every net is inspected/checked by Graham before being fitted/used.
Our Nets are made specifically to fit our heads (within very small tolerances). We do not recommend or support the use of other nets in our rackets/heads. The cord diameters of other nets typically do not match with the diameters of the net fitting holes in our heads and the net dimensions and shapes are not designed to match with our head shapes or hole spacings. Simply put - Other nets will not work properly with our heads.
Original or Pro Net
We make 2 standard sizes of net:
1. the Original Net, which fits our Original or 'round' heads.
2. the Pro Net, which fits the Pro or 'square' head.
Being hand made, the nets are not all 'exactly' the same but they are pretty darn close! We can also make 'custom nets' - please contact us with your requirements.
Set or Not Set
Our nets can be supplied either 'not set' or 'set'.
Not Set - You buy the net as it has been made. The knots are not fully tightened and the net has not been set (as pictured).
Set Net - We fit the net into a head, seat it then set it. (Seating the net - the knots are tightened, while keeping the mesh proportions correct and the net in the correct shape. Everything is tightened down to prevent the net from moving/slipping. The net is then set to your requirements). Lastly, it is is taken back out of the head, leaving the impressions of where and how far it needs to be fitted/pulled into your racket head. This makes it much easier for you to fit and then use. The hard work has been done for you!
Each net comes with a net fitting cord (which is the cord used to tie the net into the head). It is an abrasion resistant, pre shrunk Nylon cord - again specially made for us, to our specifications.
