What does “Tangle Free” mean in your nets?
April 12, 2018
There are two main types of mesh that have been used in fishing nets for a long time. One is called “Poly” which has a really plastic type feel and the other is “Kuralon” which is more like cotton. The strands of both these mesh types are actually three strands twisted together. Here is an image of the three strands twisted together to make one strand of Poly or Kuralon mesh.
Hooks can often get caught in between the three strands so we created “Tangle Free”. Lucky Strike mesh that is labeled “Tangle Free” means that the mesh on the net has been coated with rubber to make sure the strands can’t be twisted apart.
