The Gauge of a net refers to its thickness, so a #60 net is thicker than a #21, for example.
The Mesh Size is the size of each square. Our nets range from 3⁄4" and 1" mesh for Golf, to 11⁄2" mesh for Lacrosse and Hockey, to 13⁄4" mesh for Baseball and Softball, to 4" mesh for Soccer.
The Color of a net may be available in Black, White, or Green.
Baseball/Softball - All of our gauge options have 13⁄4" squares, so a baseball or softball will not go through the net. The nylon gauge options go from #18 to #96, and our most popular choice is the #36. The #36 is also very popular for Lifeline Netting for boating.
The #36 is available in Black, White, or Green. The #21 in Black or White. All other baseball/softball gauges are available in Black only.
Poly nets only come in #36 gauge. Nets available in Black.
Golf - We offer two nylon golf net options in #18 gauge. For direct hitting and heavy use, we have High Impact nets with 3⁄4" squares. Nets available in Black or White.
For low impact or longer distances, we have Barrier nets with 1" squares. Nets available in Black, White, or Green.
Lacrosse - Our lacrosse nets have a smaller square size (11⁄2") so a lacrosse ball will not go through them. They are made form #30 nylon and are available in Black only.
Hockey - Our #30 gauge nylon hockey net has a 11⁄2" square size which prevents pucks from going through.
Also available is our 13⁄4" Clear mono-filament netting. This is great for the top of hockey goals and as barrier netting.
Soccer - We use #36 nylon nets with a 4" square for soccer to allow the most viewing room possible. Since a soccer ball is much larger than golf or baseball, the soccer ball will not fit through the larger mesh squares. Nets available in Black or White.
