CrankShooter.com lacrosse nets
Why use the CrankShooter.com hi-strength polyester replacement net? Because it will last longer, perform better and and give you the biggest bang for your buck compared to other lacrosse nets on the market.
Are you are new to Lacrosse or have questions about what size replacement net to get? Here's how we look at sizing nets based on our experience as coaches and as a manufacturer regarding net placement within age groups:
- Elementary School 4mm nets,
- Middle School 5mm nets,
- High School/College 6mm nets,
***Recommendations are based on our years of experience.
The typical lacrosse goal nets that comes with a lacrosse goal today from big box stores are a 2.0mm or 2.5mm nylon net typically, some are poly nets. These nets not only cannot handle a high velocity shot from a 12 year old without having the net break in many cases, but they will rot and have material breakdown during the first months of use (See Images at the bottom of this page to see the results of a 12 year old shooting at net after 4 weeks)
