Archery Back Stop Netting
Archery Back Stop Netting: is used to catch and stop arrows that miss the target.
Made of a Heavy Nylon Mesh, the netting hangs loosely and when an arrow impacts, the netting 'gives' and absorbs the energy of the arrow, slowing it down and stopping it. For the lighter poundage bows and club level bows using target archery arrows, the netting will stop the arrow nearly all of the time. A lot of clubs and organisations use this netting very successfully.
NOTE: This netting doesn't always stop all arrows. In particular hunting arrows will cut the net. Also heavy pull bows and stronger compound bows will be more likely to cause arrows to leak through the netting. As a safety measure if you don't have a good area of clear ground behind the target and netting, a second layer of netting spaced back from the first is advisable.
Hanging Archery Back Stop Netting for use: The Nets come with a series of split rings along the top edge and a wire longer than the top edge of the net to suspend the net. The ends of the wire need securing either to Poles outdoors or to Walls on indoor ranges. We supply Poles for the purpose as a stock line. The Netting should not be stretched taught as this removes the stopping ability and causes arrows to penetrate the mesh more easily.
