Well worth the extra money. Although if you want to save a bit go with the mesh by itself, especially if you have other strings on hand or if you have a few sticks to string I would recommend going with a couple of spools instead of a kit.Pros:
The mesh is great, virtually no break in time. Easy to string, barely had to adjust pocket. Mesh didn't bag out after practice and first game. Perfect mix of hard and soft texture with the mesh. worth the extra money.Cons:
This kit should have the option of adding an extra shooting string or other customization options.
