My cheapie walmart seine finally disinitegrated, so I had to break down and
buy a new net. I ordered a 10'x4' 1/8" (largest legal seine size in KY)
delta net with greencoat from memphis net and twine. I got the net today
and to my surprise, the net was ace and not delta. Other than this, the net
is really nice.

In the catalog, ace is listed as 24 lb break test, while delta is listed as
35 lb break test.

Other than the strength, is there any real difference between ace and delta?
I hate to return the net because I will not likely get the replacement in
time for my vacation, but I will do so if there are real advantages to the
delta net. Otherwise, I will cal the company and get them to refund the
price difference between ace and delta nets.
