The Kodex DBX Wide-Frame Specimen Landing Net comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.


THE Kodex DBX Wide-Frame Specimen Landing Net is a 28 in. spoon net, pan net hybrid that looks just as suitable for swallowing chub and barbel as it does on a runs water landing carp into double-figures.

The deep, soft polyester mesh gives you some fish resting room too, supported by a black 9 mm diameter alloy tube frame, with a black alloy spreader block complete with a brass thread. The mesh is seven stitched for durability.

This is a net you could quite happily rove a river with as well as sit tight behind rods on a commercial with.

Price: £22.50.
