Using a stiff carbon composite handle for rigidity when netting, along with a neat quick-release spreader block, the Cocoon landing net has some unique features.

Firstly, the folding stainless-steel spreader block that holds the net solid in place thanks to its unique divider allows the net to be broken down by simply releasing tension on the net arms and pushing the divider out of the way. Another great addition is the magnetic mesh retainer system.

Unlike clip retainers that can often take quite a bit of force to release, the magnet will release without fail and the fish is engulfed. The result is a net that will be easy to move around during netting, yet will have ample room for a netted fish.

With EVA foam fitted on the net arms to maintain buoyancy and an easy-grip shrink-wrap handle it’s an impressive net for the price.
