    No lol I think that tossing your net that high in the air would only scare or spook the bait.

    I wonder how much the net weigh? He definitely wins the distance contest. I can't even throw a banana that far!

    In some of the videos, they throw it 20ft off the jetty. The handline looks pretty small so the net is probably not that heavy. But it is an impressive throw regardless.

    This one looks like a 14ft+ net and looks pretty heavy. No distance but perfect throw.

    No braille lines and i'm guessing very light.

    I throw both ways shown here but instead of lead line in mouth, I toss it over the shoulder. For 10ft+ net, the triple load is a lot easier but the triple load does not work well with smaller 8ft net. It tends to overpower it. Better distance with smaller net using the lead in mouth and net split in half method.

    Triple load:


    Lead line in mouth, net split in half:



    More effort with the latter part and net doesn't fully open as easily as the triple load.

    The above was a 10ft Cracker 3/8 inch mesh, 15lbs net.

    if you cant pancake a 10' net every time regardless of the load then you dont need to be throwing a net. those lil asians are straight pancaking what looks like a 14' net. braille lines or not, those nets dont look very light.

    Yeah...I throw my kinda heavy 10 footer about a whole 2 yards off the front of my boat :rotflmao about 1/2 of a turn of the body and normally waylay the pogies, usually over a 100 in one cast, and I don't get wet because I don't do the over the shoulder thing, I load it up all in front of me and let er fly :cool:
