What are you all using? It's probably going to be for use next season for me as can't see me out much over winter.

Am looking at the Korum Latex Spoons though and they look pretty good to me.

I have three 30" Korums two of the folding spoons and one as per the clip and they are excellent for large Barbel and Carp

I use one of these, really happy with it apart from a couple of things.

Stink bag is poor and will rip if you dont look after it. Might just be me being useless clumsy and impatient
Bolt that attaches to your handle, be careful with this as i got down to the lake one day and mine had fallen out of the plastic housing.

Contacted korum and they sent me the replacement piece needed but just be wary as this is a problem that other people have had.

Still wouldnt hesitate in buying another one to be fair as it is a quality net.

EDIT - Just seen this isnt the folding spoon net! Doh!

Never had any problems with my folding spoons but thanks for the heads up as always worth checking that they are not starting to go. (y)

Thinking about getting the folding spoon. Didn't see there's a video for that on Youtube too. Thanks for replies. Seems Korum are a good option.

Found the picture that i sent to Korum.

To be fair to them, they sorted it immediately. Might be that its an older model but i have heard a few people say about the bolt coming loose.

Always thought the spoon ones and also the foldable ones cumbersome and awkward to transport given their shape (even when folded). Any deep specimen net where the bars remove from the spreader block and roll up for me. Got a Drennan one last year, nice and deep too for resting fish in.

Yeah the triangle nets that can roll up look good for transport. Would be nice to have a handle that collapses to a decent size to go with it too if anyone has any suggestions?

Yeah in terms of use mine will be for next year now so just window shopping at the moment. Going to get a Greys barbel rod first.

Hi, got rigid Large Korum Rubberized Spoon, but bought Foldable version, when it came out.
Had no problems.

Use with 3m Drennan Super Specialist Handle.
Bought when new widget had just came out (years back), have obtained a spare thou.
Clean inner & outer(inside), once in a while, or if it feels a bit gritty.
