I really wanted to like this mesh. I really really liked the fact that this stuff was made in the US (like Throne Fiber as well) and was made by Jima, whose mesh I have used for years. I was impressed with the quality of the mesh that I received, and it was long enough for me to string with (which had been a challenge for me when I was using Jima). You can certainly string this thing up with a bag. I think a lot of that comes from the extra material they put in between the diamonds, a feature they advertise, which makes the diamonds further apart. This though, completely changes any kind of stringing patterns you may have used in the past. If I had the time our patience to commit to getting a pattern that would work, that has both the pocket depth and channel I''m used to, I could probably eventually get there. However, I found doing so was much easier with SK 1x, because of it''s more traditional diamond structure. Both products are of similar stiffness, and are much stiffer than Throne Fiber. All in all, a pretty nice mesh, just one that wasn''t for me.
