Frabill Power Stow Landing Netby: theangler
Touted as the ‘ideal blend of form and function,’ Frabill’s Power Stow combines benchmark landing net performance with treasured stowability. Let’s begin at the beginning: POWER. The handle of the Power Stow is constructed of seriously strong, corrosion free aluminum. Next, the nylon yoke is glass-filled for ultimate durability for years of rigorous use.
Admittedly, the Power Stow has a tender side as well. It’s meshing is knotless to take it easy on Mr. Fish during the sometimes tumultuous scooping and hoisting process – no harm to the fish’s scales or fins. Moreover, the tangle-free meshing is coated with Frabill’s signature treatment, which encourages fish to slide into the net while at the same time not removing their protective skin coating.
Celebrated tournament champion and Frabill Pro Staff Scott Glorvigen sings its praises. “The Power Stow is a game changer. First, you have a Frabill-quality landing net with core features like knotless, tangle-free meshing and a sturdy aluminum handle – must haves for serious fisherman. Then, the showstopper: It folds shut and the handle virtually disappears. My boat is chock full of gear – space is always at a premium. With the Power Stow, my landing net doesn’t steal any of that valuable fishing space.”
Catering to a wealth of fish species and applications, the Power Stow is available in multiple configurations. The smaller 3704 (14- by 18-inch hoop) and 3706 (20- by 24-inch hoop) models are picture-perfect for lifting panfish and trout on kayaks and canoes. Up the chart, you have models with extendable handles including the 8501 (14- by 18-inch hoop), 8502 (14- by 18-inch hoop), 8507 (20- by 24-inch hoop), 8510 (24- by 28-inch hoop), 8513 (24- by 28-inch hoop), 8520 (30- by 32-inch hoop), 8523 (30- by 32-inch hoop), 8527 (36- by 38-inch hoop) and 8530 (40- by 44-inch hoop). Telescoping length varies by model, taking into account the individualized needs of anglers.
