The STX 5.0 MM white net is perfect for backyard goals. We sell tons of these nets because your high school superstar, who thinks it fun to blow through corners in the back yard will be challenged by this STX durability. This is also the go to net for buyers in youth programs because they can get 3 seasons out of these nets while others fail. One step below a collegiate net, STX got this one right. Don't get fooled by the big box or discount Amazon guys. We could carry those too, but they just rip.
