IMO there is significantly less drag when using English ulstron. Which means its less tiring to push through the water, and can be moved more quickly. So I feel Ulstron is worth the premium on scoop nets. Its probably less beneficial for Set Nets.
I agree.For a scoop net ulstron is definately the way to go.On a large net the amount of drag through the water is significantly more with kiwi or other types of netting.I once had a new scoop net made of that kiwi stuff and on an incoming tide It was almost impossible to hold it in the current.The Ultsron netting I beleive is more durable and dries out a lot quicker as well.
