Hit the post MANY of times but the pipe won't budge or break.
My brother used to work on a garbage truck and he found regulation hockey net in decent condition ( no rips) so we made our own net out of square 2 inch metal pipe. I think it was lying around on our farm, we just cut it up and welded it. It was a pretty ugly net, all square (we didn't have a pipe bender) but it worked well. I think it ended up in the bottom of our pond because we forgot to take it off before the ice melted, there must be about 5 hockey nets down there from over the years

Oh and I find PVC nets are annoying because they break with hockey pucks (the ones I have shot on anyways) and they move around when I shoot.
