I bought the one that is 25 ft wide, and initially stretched it to 25 ft. Now it's a little over 14 ft wide, and it looks about as wide as what kr580 has shown in the top picture.
Ah, yes, good point. That's a 25' wide net and I have it set up at about 13' wide. I could stretch it to maybe 18' wide before I'd be worried about putting holes in the net and ripping off whatever I have it tied to on the roof.
It's 12' high but I'm using it at about 8' high as well.
The more slack, the less impact the net takes.
