Gear Talk / Re: Seigler SGN

Ok....I got the reel back. It was a surprise though. Mr. Gill from Seigler had sent me an email stating that he would personally email me as to when they receive the reel and what exactly is wrong with the reel. Essentially he was going to let me know everything as it happened. He also stated that my money would be refunded in the event that there was some sort of defect in the reel. I wrote Mr Gill back after I received the reel. I should also note that there was nothing accompanying the reel in the box. No receipt....and nothing explaining what they did. My letter back to Seigler basically asked them what the issue was. I also asked it I would be getting my money back. I let a few days pass while I waited for a response. I didn't get one, so I just sent another asking if they read my original email. The next day I received an apology letter from Mr Gill. He basically said that they were busy in the shop and that he had someone else work on my reel due to his busy schedule. There was still no explanation as to why my reel failed. He did mention that I would be receiving a refund of my money in the form of a check. That was 2 weeks ago.....still no check. So, it's hard for me to form an opinion about this reel based on my limited use of the reel. Although, I can say without a doubt that their customer service has room for improvement. Maybe it had something to do with the holidays. Maybe I expect too much. I can say that I was happy to receive my reel within 2 weeks. Not bad considering it was over the holidays. It looks like they also set the drag....which is nice. I just wish I knew exactly what they did to fix it. I also would like to have a parts list. One doesn't exist yet for this reel. Hope this helps for anyone trying to decide. Let me know if you all have any questions.

Rarely post but thought this was worthy. Shot this last Spring up at Wishon. Saw something from a distance, large, dark, and moving slowly through the water. Paddled closer and fortunately I happened to have my point & shoot with me. Respected his turf and didnt get any closer. Sorry for the unsteady hand.

Honestly in the ocean I almost never except salmon fishing even have my net out, So either one of those mentioned work. I have had the promar folding net for probably half a decade, not even sure if it opens anymore. Have not used the one that I take in the ocean ever.

So on the last trip out in 2017 I rolled and bent my net into a L shape lol
I've been seeing that most guys out there either had a folding type or a huge non folding type like my old , now L shaped, net. I don't have much storage on my kayak so I'd like to get one that is easily stored in the hull through my hatchet opening or just out of the way when launching in questions are,  what have y'all been using ? I've found promar and Frabill nets online...any of you have a review on these about their durability? Any others I should look at?
-must be 18"
-foldable not collapsible handle
-preferebly around the $20-30 range
