There’s been a lot of interest in the Daiwa ISO telescopic net handle since I highlighted it in my 2014 Gear of the Year. New for 2015 is a shorter 3.60m version. I was lucky enough to fondle one at the show and it was noticeably lighter (480g vs 720g) – weight being the only negative I could raise about my 5.90m model.
It’s also more compact. Only 44cm when closed. It’s a really nice tool if you can get away with a 3.60m net where you fish.
