Mike / Topeka, KS
I have not personally used a net for practice but I've purchased them on at least 2 occasions as gifts for friends. I have a small city park across the street from my home and there is a lot of traffic that goes by hourly so this Spornia net would get some exposure when I take it over there to swing away.
I have not used a monitor of any type as I haven't used a net personally. A friend has recently retired from the game due to physical issues and has offered to let me have his monitor to try. This would be the perfect time to take him up on his offer!
