    That stuff looks really good... Maybe a group buy would be in order?
    Some of my freight hopping adventures on film over at my YouTube Channel... Oh and there is other stuff there as well!

    That should work fine, it's just your standard no-see-um netting - but the price is very high for the size of it. I know you're looking for Paypal payment... but boy, $8 for 60x54 square... ouch! Will they even cut it in longer lengths or do they only sell the squares of it?

    You could try contacting OWF to see if they would be able to take a paypal payment. Worth a shot, anyway.

    Sorry, we are not set up for Paypal but do accept all major credit cards.
    First time orders are easiest to fax or call in thereafter we can keep your cc # on file and you just need to specify to use that card and provide the 3 digit security code.
    People do send #'s through email but it's not recommended to be secure.
    You can email address info in advance and wait for us to assign you a customer # which will save phone time.

    Thanks for your interest in our company,

    Why not order from Ed Speer ... his netting is excellent and he takes PayPal

    The Equinox stuff is decent. I just finished my bugnet/sock tube with it. I don't have anything else to compare it to, though, but it seems like a good product to me. The holes are small, the edges are clean and don't unravel, it's reasonably strong and doesn't tear easy - the only issue is that it comes in one size, in an individual package. So to do a full sock from the stuff, you'd likely have to buy 3 or 4 of them, at which point it isn't economical, especially when you can buy online by the yard for much cheaper. As it is, I bought one piece, and EMS has a college student discount (I'm still a perpetual grad student) of 10%. So if you were to do out the math, it came to just slightly more per yard than it would be to order online, and I had it that day to start playing with. Luckily the design I used was built around that presized piece, so I didn't mind. YMMV.
