    We were looking for a soft toss net for our 11u travel team with the following: 1) Easy/quick assembly 2)Quality construction 3)Durability 4) Good in the wind 5) Cost effective

    In addition, we researched all the other brands and wanted to avoid the cheap/small fibergalss rods that break after the first or second use, and something the whole team didn't have to help breakdown/fold up just to fit it back into it's case. So far we haven't had any problems with the case, and have been using it several times a week for 3 months now.

    We found it in this product. Very well made, the two fiberglass rods on each side are larger/thicker and aren't being asked to be bent in half to perform. The net is high quality as is the stitching. We have had absolutely no problem using this in sustained 20mph+ winds. We utilize the stakes but the frame hardly moves without them becuase it is designed correctly.

    Since it's so easy to move, we also use the net during the week at practice with OF throwing drills to different bases if our IF are doing other drills, use it as a backstop for pitching on the side if one is not avialable, catchers throwing to bases (bottom of net being the target)...and many others. You find uses for it besides just soft toss.

    Buy this with confidence that you are getting what you pay for in the product and piece of mind that you wont be returning it next week.

    We aren't affiliated with the manufacture or baseball express, just happy to report on a product out there that deserves it.

    Great idea but needs changes.

    My daughter is a member of a competitive travel ball team, and we have four of these Big Mouth nets, they all have the same problem, very poor seam construction.

    My daughter is a member of a competitive travel ball team, and we have four of these Big Mouth nets, they all have the same problem, very poor seam construction.

    Every one of the nets the seams fail after a very short time, the newest net failed after the first day. The main issues are the two piece nylon poll pocket on either side of the net where the polls pass through.

    These pockets are two piece fabrics that have an outside seem that will, and has failed, on all of our nets. To fix this issue a seam strengthener should be sewn into the fabric on the outside to prevent the seam from pulling out from the pressure of the bow in the polls. A better design would be a one piece fabric design where there is no outside seam and this fabric is sewed to the stronger netting material.

    All of our nets needed to be re-sewn by an outside company to repair or strengthen this area.

    The concept of the net is great, it's just the execution of the design is poor in some areas. When these nets become un-serviceable we will be switching manufactures unless this design deficiency is addressed.

      Comments about BowNet The Bow Net Big Mouth Practice Screen:

      my girls use the bow net in the back yard for batting practice and for fun. the travel team has gone through a few of these over the last 3 or so years. the set up and break down easy and doesn't take up much room in the suv. the frame is well made. the net itself is pretty good. it will eventually wear out, especially where it slides over the side posts. replacement nets are available. the travel case zipper is the first thing that goes. it includes 2 hooked stakes to anchor the frame on windy days.

        Comments about BowNet The Bow Net Big Mouth Practice Screen:

        We have used a couple other hitting nets on the market, and this is by far the BEST we have found. It takes 2 minutes or less to setup or take down, and it's all straight forward, no twisting and bending poles. Everything fits in a nice carrying case that will last for years.

        The product is light weight in design but very durable. You will be extremely happy with this product for back yard use, practices, and pregame warm-ups.

            We used right away at a tournament. The net frayed and fell apart on first use. We had to put away due to balls flying through net. This is a good product that had a poor net. Precisely what warranty is for. I called and they shipped a new one immediately with no issues. I expect this to not be a chronic issue.

                I was looking for a net strong enough for my Son …He is a Div 1 College Pitcher being looked at by Scouts … 6'3 210lbs … throwing at 92 plus. So we needed a net that is strong enough. This net is strong enough and because of it's big mouth, We can actually set it up in the back yard ( which is small ) about 30 ft from My Son and he can work on His mechanics with out having to go to the baseball field.
