It is common for other types of roller rings, or the old-style snap rings, to lose their \”snap\” and become a hook that rips the net. This can result in thousands of dollars of lost revenue by one or more of the following occurrences.
- The boat must return to port to fix the damaged net.
- The boat must purchase and install new very expensive bales of net.
- The boat loses fishing time while repairing the net.
- The boat loses fish that escape through the hole in the ripped net.
