#24 Twine Size knotted HDPE(High Density Polyethylene). Includes all deluxe features. For youth through light commercial Batting Cage applications. Batting Cage Netting is hung on a square, which absorbs the impact of the balls over several meshes with no high spots to accelerate wear. UV & Weather protection is embedded during extrusion, Not a cheap coating that will flake off in a couple of years. Batting Cage Net Life expectancy is 4 to 6 years.
What Twine size do I need? I recommend people buy the largest twine they can afford. A #42 Twine net is about twice as thick and twice as strong as a #21 Twine. The larger twined, heavier cages will snag balls better, look better, wear better, last longer, and you will be happier with it. You need a minimum of 60 lbs. of tensile strength.
#21 Twine is a Pretty Good Net, 125 lbs. of tensile strength, with moderate use could last 3 to 4 years.
#24 Twine is a Very Good Net, 148 lbs. of tensile strength, can be used for Light commercial or Middle School, should last 4 to 6 years
#42 Twine is a Very Heavy Duty Net, 220 lbs. of tensile strength, many pro teams will use this for their cages, good for commercial batting cages. Should last 8 to 10 years
What is the difference between square hung & diamond hung mesh? To put it simply, Square Mesh is better. Diamond Mesh is cheaper.
What is Posi-lock stitching? It is a process where the machine tightly weaves a cord around the rope and the net to provide the strongest possible bond between the two. Some manufacturers will just weave the rope in and out of the netting panels which can result in the rope pulling away from or out of the panels.
