backstop netting?

hi i recently just build a hockey skill pad and i set it up on the side of my house along with a net. problem is sometimes i miss the net and if i do it goes all the way across to street into the neighbors lawn or something. so im looking to get a net to hang as a backstop net. ive been looking around and some are really cheap and some are pretty expensive it seems that the fishing nets are the cheapest. anyone ever try this and know any good deals or what kind of netting is best for a hockey puck? and how much they spent?

I bought that netting off eBay and I must say it has worked great. No holes yet. I can fire off any shot and it holds up well.

I got it $40 shipped for a 12' x 25' net from here:

I have one of these:

You can buy the backstop by itself for 70 bucks.

You can buy nets for golfers to hit golf balls into for $20. They're very durable and should work fine.

I have tried the ez-goal backstop and the fishing net. I like the fishing net because it's a BIG net, the ez-goal backstop is easier to set up. If you want some fishing net just get it from Amazon.
