As of 2020 there are 3 current models of The Ballyhoop hoop net, Aluminum, Stealth & Flex. They all catch live bait efficiently and effectively. The main difference is the way they store when not being used. So then it comes down to the way they are stored and the material the ring is made out of.
The Aluminum model stores in the half moon bag that is 4 feet long and is just basically the hoop folded in half in a bag. Most anglers store this model in the center consoles or larger hatches.
Next is the stealth model with is a semi-clear resin rod that stores in a 6 foot long bag. Most anglers store this model in the gunnels, center console, long hatches or even in rod holders next to the T-Top.
Last but not least is the flex model which is made out of Fiberglass, it stores down to half its size in a 2 foot round bag. This can be placed in various hatches, gunnels, center consoles, etc. This is the most versatile model.
