    I also have a 13’ Roman Venture. I’ve had it up in my backyard everyday for the past 3 summers. It hasn’t torn or leaked in all that time, and I’ve left it out in some real bad wind.

    My net is made from Tulle. It’s cheap and super light, but not very durable.

    Still, I like it, and you can get the fabric in 108” wide, so with only two seams, you can make your net.
