Mesh will be here in the morning

https://toughfabrics.bigcartel.com/product/wide-hole-mesh-tf-102

Made a small video ro show sample . Similar to the collins nets but alot cheaper . Got for just over £8 per M x 1.5m and free postage

No stretch . Does seem to pull slightly more one way than the other but thats the way nets are made in fairness

Thos should do the trick

Mesh arrived soooo

Back to lifts.
Once i get these right ill put the wooden uprights in line with the poles .
Attempt 3 .
Bit more forward with the poles
Using a strap to hold legs inline with poles .
Strap sitting below knee and on calf .
Maybe move up to knee so strap is directly behind knee .
Wont be keeping those straps just to get a idea where everything will sit . Naturally poles want to swing back and forth with leg movement


Small vid of me walking . Right leg strap came off but get the idea

Add webbing to front that i have spare from tk build ( across poles )

Moved supports further forward .
Following advice to have knees slightly bent which will also help keep balance and stop leaning forward

Leg straps aint secured yet . Will secure once happy with position
