I'm going to get a new keepnet and wanted a quick dry one, so was looking at the 4m preston quick dry.

Anyone got one and does it actually dry quicker than normal carp sacking.

cheers

In a word - no
My mates got one and, in terms of dampness after use, we can't tell any difference between his and mine (I've got the standard blue Preston net)

I've got one. I bought it because the more open mesh is better for use on the river allowing the flow to pass through.As far as quick dry is concerned--forget it, it takes ages to dry out.

I bought the new one with the rubber corners on it last week ready for larford last saturday. I threw it in and it sank right away no problems.
I also used it again sunday and sank again on its own I didn't have to push it down with my landing net handle like usual.
Dry's out fairly quick too. The locking thing at the top is good too.
I have only used it 2 times though but so far I'm impressed.
Will prolly get another in a few weeks.

Edit....

4 meters , bloooooody hell. I have the 3.5 meter and it takes half an hour to pull in [:D]

I've got the 3.5mtr with the rubber corners, sinks like a brick.I think they dry quicker just because there is less material than the micro mesh carp nets.

I have one of the Pre-mod and one of the post-mod nets (the post-mod being the rubber corners) and think they have been improved a fair bit...the pre-mod does float for a while, even when wet!
