The most typically selected netting option for general-use sporting applications, including basketball barrier, is the #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and usually it is bordered around the edge meshes with a 5/16" braided Dacron® rope sewn-in. These are the materials that have been used for all of these basketball-shot nets in the past, as well with the latest run of product as well. Our customer also has 2" steel rings sewn-in on the upper corners of each netting panel, which are used to hook/connect the netting to their installation framing.
