Default What Goalie net do reccomend

I was thinking of buying my own goalie net but I don't know what I should get. Ether plastic or metal, because I am shooting roller pucks at the net. Should I get a metal net for more durability or should i get a plastic net so I can take it to different locations.

well you can take a metal net to different locations. I would deffently get metal. I use a mylec goal and its regulation size about years old now and still in great shape. I think the franklin nets have wheels in the posts so you can bring it to different locations

Plastic nets are about as useful as Jet-Li's karate against an M-16.

My friend bought a plastic goal. We broke pieces off using a warm weather roller hockey ball... Imagine a puck hitting it.

You could always go to your local Home Depot and get PVC pipe. I made one a few years ago out of 2" pvc (i think it was) and we used a roll of electrical tape and it never broke.

Anyway.. back on topic.

My suggestion depends on what you want to spend. You can buy decent metal, portable nets (some come with wheels to pull them around by)for around $250 that can withstand pucks, no problem.

But as others mentioned, you could just build one for yourself, if you're just shooting around. 1/2" gas pipe could be cut and fitted 4x6, and then you could order netting (net for minnow/fish seines can be purchased in large enough pieces to completely fit a 4x6), and you can buy two caster wheels to stick up into the bottom of the pipes so you can wheel it around.

I suspect this is more trouble than it's worth, though. *heh*
