Andrew Maxwell Ph.D. Professor of Entrepreneurial Engineering Lassonde School of Engineering, Journal of Business:
"Eznet’s true innovation is its corner mold, with 3 U.S. patents. It works like a human elbow and turns a traditional light plastic net into an exo-skeletal system that absorbs and disperses professional shots or child impact. The polypropylene adds to its pliable character.
This innovation results in positive change that addresses these net issues: child trauma from goal post impact – child trauma, even death, from chin-ups - child trauma, even death, from projectile ricocheting - child trauma, even death, from mesh entanglement– weight and transport – assembly and disassembly – structure sustainability. An exo-skeletal design is an ideal application for a sports net."
Brent Selman: Duke University Men’s Hockey Coach : Carolina Hurricanes and Team U.SA. Instructor: Regional Outpatient Rehabilitation Manager: "We’ve had Eznets for 3 years in the backyard. Our children play with them all by themselves. For my wife and I, it is the peace of mind knowing that our children are completely safe on their own with Eznet, even if they run into it or try to hang off the crossbar or play inside the mesh, which has openings too small to get their head entangled."
Vanessa Martinez Lagunas: Head Coach of the University of Manitoba Bison Women’s Soccer Team, UEFA Pro Coach, FIFA Instructor and Technical Expert: "We used 24 Eznets for the FIFA Live Your Goals Festival that was organized in Winnipeg in 2015. Since then I use Eznets at every practice. This is truly a simple, yet durable and practical design, that every coach and team will love."
Ray Scapinello: NHL Hall of Fame Inductee: "I have known Tom and his Eznet since the inception of the Princess Margaret Road Hockey event. Tom has proven to be an honest family man, with limitless energy and honesty. My wife, Maureen and I, are proud to call Tom and his wife, Lynne, friends. Also, his Eznets are the best net I have ever seen. I have used them myself at our tournaments. They never wear out."
Shawn Burt: Chief Hockey Officer - Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation 'Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer. "Tom and his Eznet team have been our partners since we started. Eznets are the only nets we have ever used. In over 4500 high-tempo adult games, we have never had an issue, not even a mesh tear. This product is second to none and the Eznet team has been incredible to work with."
