All of the nets are made full measure, both in length and width, and the quality of twine and canvas binding used Is first-class. For those who wish a good appearing net, and one that will wear well and always be satisfactory, we recommend the double center hand-made nets in 21 thread, made of white twine. These are: No. 2D, 36 feet long with 11 feet double center, price $6.50; No. 3D, length 42 feet and 13 feet of double center, price $7.00.

Slightly lighter nets, but of the same quality, are: No. 2C, of 15 thread, white, length 36 feet, with 11 feet of double center, price $6.00; No. 3C, 15 thread, white, length 42 feet, with 13 feet of double center, price $6.50.
