Default Betts super pro 10’ Braille lines are +\- 18”



The lines are severely different lengths. Is this normal? I know it’s not the best net on earth but I’m surprised they are this bad out of the box. Did I get a dud? the really bad ones are shorter than the majority.

Just trying to figure out if I should just fix it myself or call up betts.
Thanks

Call them up and send them a picture. Most likely they wont initiate a return and will send you another net for free. Shipping cost is too much and your net will be disposed anyways.

Sorry, 28-30 brail lines will be found in 12ft nets. I just counted a 10ft fitec that i have and it has 24 lines. Shouldnt be any less on the super pro you have. But they will replace the net for you for free. Tell them you already used it and stores are not supposed to take used nets back for return. Betts should send you a new one without needing the first one back.

Oh you’re talking number of lines. I was referring to the length, they are very uneven. I realize I didn’t actually say that though. Will update post.

Oh crap, i thought that was just the way you hung it. Definitely a manufacturer flaw. You are supposed to have a good 1-2inches of extra brail line after the net is stretched out all the way. I had the exact same issue but with all the brail lines were about 1 inch short. The lead line was starting to disintegrate after a few seasons of use as well. Called Betts up and sent them a few pictures and they sent me a new net right away. Customer service is great but the quality of that series of nets isnt the best. But the Morada series from Betts is at a whole another level if you can fork up a few extra dollars.
