That surprised me too... Iíve got the mk1 and had it since brand new.... brilliant net tbh - very easy to break down...tuck one arm under your arm and push the other away from from you - anyway, my mates got the mk2 and Having netted a fish for him I struggled to break his down not realising they were now made differently! I would guess they changed it due to cost... a shame really the mk1 was one of the best nets around imho.

Anyway... if the mk2ís handle is anything like the mk1 then itíll be plenty strong/stiff enough.

(Didnít Harrison make the handle and arms for the mk1? Do they still make them for the mk2?)

Not sure on how it compares to the original as never owned or used one.

Arms are a little tricky but I find slotting my forearm/hand and elbow between the arms works pretty well.

Having only ever seen pictures of the bulldog prior to hvaing it bought for me I always assumed they were a similar mechanism to century nets - a spreader and metal tipped net arms that clicked in. I was suprised to see they were just standard push in arms.

I have the bulldog 2 - was planning on a dymag but the girlfriend bought me the matrix.

Lovely slim, stiff and light weight net, only thing that I'm not a fan of i that the ends of the arms, where they slot into the spreader, are bare carbon. I wonder how durable this will be and whether it will scuff up/splinter over time.
