TrailLite Designs tenkara specific Ti Tenkara Net is a modern ultra light titanium and carbon fiber update to the traditional tenkara fishing net. The 9.5" (24 cm) diameter size of the Ti Tenkara Net is ideal for fishing smaller mountain streams. The ti/carbon frame is very strong and durable and yet the total weight is under 3 oz complete with netting. Two versions of the Ti Tenkara Net will be offered, a more "traditional" angled version and a "western" straight version. Netting used will be either black or clear depending on availability. Links to purchase and to reviews will be posted soon!
Here are a few pictures:

Looks great looking forward to reading the reviews. The more I fish the more I find myself wanting a small, light durable net.May 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm #1742244
Thanks for the positive comments.
Ryan Jordon received an early prototype to test and just received a production version to use and review.
Also Chris Stewart (aka tenkarabum) and Jason Klass received Ti Tenkara Nets to use and review.

Four out of 5 of Chris' nets weighed 2.4 oz, one weighed 2.5! Very nice indeed!
I picked up a flat one for backpacking – I think it will pack better than the angled version.
Good job, Thom!Sep 26, 2011 at 2:09 pm #1783741
What is the best way to carry the net when you're on the stream? (I noticed that it doesn't have an eyelet on the handle to attach it to a magnetic release.) How do you stow it securely when fishing so that it out of the way, but ready for use when you need it?Sep 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm #1783757
You just stick it through your belt – works fine.Sep 26, 2011 at 9:37 pm #1783886
I guess I'm not sure the through the belt thing would work for me.
I rigged up a simple sling using a piece of cord and one of those magnet thingies attached to the net ring. It adds about 1.5 ounces, but I think it will be better for my purposes than sticking it in my belt.Sep 28, 2011 at 10:20 am #1784396
@baughbLocale: So Cal.
If the net is that small… I think the fish could be handled easily without assistance. But is IS pretty cool.
