  • ATEC Multi-Purpose Net

    Our Middle School Baseball team is considering purchasing the ATEC Multi-Purpose Net for tee work and soft toss. We have plenty of comments on the Easton and Jugs pop-up nets, but the coach is a big fan of ATEC. Any reviews that you have about this product would be greatly appreciated.

      I looked at this model and it seems quite nice - http://www.ondecksports.com/index.ph...category_id=49

      I have the Easton Pop-Up net and I like it because it goes up in about 1 minute and can take it down in less time. It is so easy to use. The ATEC net looks similar, but I would make sure it is easy to set up/ take down. You don't want to spend 30 precious practice minutes setting up and taking down equipment.

      I bought my Easton net for $100 and this ATEC model looks to be $95. So I don't think you can go wrong either way.

        I have an Easton pop-up net that I throw and hit into at my apartment. I like it a lot.

          I have an older ATEC model that goes together like a popup tent, with the fiberglass poles, and it takes 5-10 minutes to put up, a little quicker with help. I do like to use it, but it's a pain in the butt if you are putting it up and down alot. This is the model that I have...

          I have the Easton popup nets as well, and they go up and down in a matter of minutes. Much nicer if your on the go and have to put them up and down numerous times

            I have this same model it takes two people to put up. The floor is nylon and metal spikes would shred it the first time someone steps inside to retrieve balls. I use it at home and move it from the yard to the garage and leave it put together.

              I like this ATEC net better. It costs more, but I feel it is a better quality net to hit or throw into to.

                This is the one that I think the coach is considering; the one on jbolt's reply.

                Thanks for the comments in advance.

                  TL_Dad, thanks for the warning. I've got that big one too, and we're just starting out in 13/14 y/o ball with metal spikes for the first time.

                  And, yeah, they're a pain to put together. You're basically putting up a tent every time you use it, but, because you're using netting instead of nylon for the sides, the poles get snagged in the netting inside the bag.
