I doubt there is any sort of reference.  The following is the reasoning I
have lived with for quite a few years.

The cost of monofilament nets has allowed them to  almost completely take
over the market.  When you get a rip, throw it out and tie in another
panel.  The braided nets can be rapaired, but cost more, are bulkier, and
weigh more.  It also takes (some) expertise to mend them.

Hope this helps,  Howard Teas
