Where can you find a Y shaped spider web catcher? I am in the middle Tn. area. Have checked ebay no luck.

My buddy just uses an old car antenna. He says it works well. You could take 2 of them, bend one and have it welded to the other one to make a Y. Just a thought.

wait, what? I get the need, but wouldn't the web just flap back in your face anyway?

That is why you let the guy your ridding with go first in the morning.

Agree with the old raio antenna. Could use old flag masts mounted on each side.
If you're talking about the things that get in your helmet and crawl in your ears(hate that), you may try earplugs.

As luck would have it, I have a bunch of them in stock.

Would you prefer an oak, hickory or maple? I have others in stock as well but there may be a slight upcharge on exotics such as sassafrass, willow or osage orange.

:laugh2:

Not sure the car antennas would hold up long whacking branches and all...I have seen them out there...very flexible plastic that will bend and always stand back vertical...never have found any though...the key is flexibility when hitting branches...dowels, fiberglass, steel would all eventually bend/break.

I use a nine iron shaft. Works great, it's not y shaped but it doesn't have to be Middle Tennessee also here

I have always thought about the need for one of those but I've never seen one on an actual ATV. I would love to see what you guys are talking about it. :beer:

I just take a stick or golf club shaft and stand it up vertical and zip tie it to my front bumper and when riding and encounter a spider web face high, the stick or club shaft knocks it down before my face does. Very good modification in the fall early morning deer hunts or trail rides

honestly can't say I've ever felt a web while riding. Probably because I've got a moto helmet and googles on...

I found a product called a Web Wacker on the net. Search "atv spider web".
Been using mine for two years. Great! Flexible. Mounts to roll steel or to flat composite front deck in seconds. I deer hunt, so I battled webs too often in the dark. No longer an issue.
A good stick, and a zip tie works just as well and is free

Sounds to me like the proper application of a Flame thrower would be much more effective than a plain old stick...

All you need to do is hook up a window pisser pump to your fuel tank, and rig a propane torch to light it when you push the Button!

With sufficient use of flames, you can eliminate several square miles of spider webs AND spiders with one push of the button.

Side effects may include the elimination of trees, houses, barns, birds, deer, ticks, nuisance grasses, humans, kittens, unicorns, and Sasquatches.

Kids... Don't try this at home...

A friend uses one of they fiberglass driveway markers...they are about 4.5 feet long little thicker than a pencil...flexible...but ridgid also..
he made a holder out of 1/2 pipe..drops right in..they cost about 3.00 a pair at lowes...he uses it for low snow covered branches during hunting season...
