Golf Net with Metal Supports - Leave Outside When Raining?

There are some metal clips that might rust but it looks like Rukket Hack net should be ok in light rain. It’s a pain in the butt to disassemble it and assemble it although OTOH it only takes 5 minutes to do so. 

WWYD? I’m being lazy, aren’t I? I should take it out of the rain?

What net did you get? I'm not seeing any clips from their setup video:

It looks annoying to set up and break down every single day. That's what I like best about my Rukket Pop-Up net. It takes more time for me to actually pull it out of the garage than it does to set it up. I know @boogielicious ended up not liking it, though.

That’s it. There are these little pop up nubs/pegs to snap the bottom bars into one piece. That’s the weak link I see.

I left my last metal frame out all year round and it rusted but still functional. What’s sensitive to sun/wind/heat/rain/etc. is the net itself. My last one fell apart and turned into dust. I leave my new one outside but will bring the net in when it rains.

I always take my nets down...I don't WANT to do it but I do.

Yeah, I've started to do that. I also guess leaving the net all stretched out isn't good either.

    • This is one of mine from a pre-shelter in place round, #9 at my home course,320 yard, dogleg left par-4, maybe 60-80 feet uphill. Most people hit a mid/long iron to lay up in the wide part of the fairway, which leaves around 120-140 yard uphill shot, with basically a flat lie. The further left you land in the fairway, the shorter the second shot. From any position in the wide section of the fairway, you can't see the green at all, and you're lucky to see the tip of the flag if it is in a front position. I used to play this hole conservatively, and hit 5/6/7-iron to the wide fairway, and then PW/9/8-iron up the hill to the green. Recently I started hitting driver because a well struck drive for me will leave about 30 yards from light rough, usually in a spot where you can at least see where the flag is. I align toward at the green "X" (fork in the cart path), playing my typical draw. If it doesn't draw, the ball will still land on an upslope and might not roll into the rough/trees. If it draws, it will carry the cart path and get a bit of roll up the hill. If it hooks, it might still be okay as long as it doesn't hook too much. The photo below shows how I intend to play the hole. The round in question, I pulled my drive badly into the trees to the left of the tee box, and after pinballing aroudn in the trees, I had this lie. The shot needed here was a punch out between the two redwood trees on the right. I suck at these shots, and anytime I'm in the redwood areas, I'm extra anxious due to the shallow roots, so I think that I unconsciously stand up out of my swing and top the ball in these areas. A topped shot from this spot sends the ball into a muddy, thick rough area, with no chance at all of reaching the green. I managed to pull off a great punch out, and made it on the green with my third leaving a 14-foot putt for par (didn't make par).
    • Just to play devil's advocate, Orr played in a lower scoring era than Gretzky and Lemieux. In the C&B article I linked before, Orr's adjusted PPG is 1.33 which is only a slight drop to his actual number, but Lemieux (1.66) and Gretzky (1.61) both lose more. Orr isn't really in this discussion, though. It's true that he changed the position as people saw it, but I don't believe "most influential" is a factor in being GOAT or we'd be talking about Patrick Roy. Or Jacques Plante. Or Stan Mikita. Gretzky was on the TV broadcast when the Oilers were playing the Devils earlier in the season and said pretty much this. When comparing the game today to when he (and Ken Daneko) were playing, he said, "It's a little different in the sense that the players are bigger, they're faster, the equipment is better... I think all in all, the players of today's age, the skill level's just at a different level."
    • An 81 today from the back tees. I was whining all day about the terrible play, but then I realized that would have killed to have an 81 from any tee a few years ago. All is good.
    • Today, in less-than-ideal conditions, I shot 45-47 for a 92. I had a stretch of seven bogeys in a row on the toughest stretch on the course (6-12), where there’s only one ‘breather’ hole, the last hole in that stretch. My iron play was the best it’s been in a while, and I had at least a par putt on 15 holes, four of those inside three feet, but I couldn’t make a thing.  I only hit one truly disappointing shot today. On the par-3 17th, I pulled a 7I about forty feet left of the green and ended up with triple, having a restricted backswing on my chip shot. But otherwise, a pretty fair day in wet/rainy conditions. I gave myself a chance to make some putts, which I’m really pleased about.
    • They also face goalies who stop a ton more shots. Orr was good but he also, like Jack Nicklaus, played against weaker competition. I absolutely think Karlsson and Drew Doughty and other defensemen in the NHL could do what Bobby Orr did. Players are better athletes all around these days. The best defensemen right now is quite likely a better hockey player than the best in 1975. Not guaranteed, but likely.
