    What do your nets weigh? #60 nylon does that mean it weighs 60 pounds per so many square feet?

    How much weight is added with latex dipping

      It’s tough to estimate a weight per square foot, since finished nets have extra ropes & hardware which add weight.
      The #60 is not an indicator of weight, rather it represents the twine diameter.

      If you could provide me with the dimensions you need netting coverage for, I can provide an estimated total weight.

    I am looking to put a cage in my basement. Can you tell me what strength and type of netting I should have for use for golf and baseball. My children are 10, 9, and 6. Would like it to last through high school years?

      Hi Brent,
      Sorry for the delayed response. Our golf netting is available in a #18 and #36 Nylon. Since this is being used for both golf and baseball and you’d like it to last through high school, I’d recommend using #36 Nylon with Latex Dip. Here is a link to our net calculator where you can view the pricing:

      Please let me know if you need anything else.
