Pennplax Infra-red Easy Catch fish net

Do they work as advertised?  According to one professional's account:

I bought some of these Infra-red Easy Catch nets by Pennplax with a hearty guffaw. Much to my surprise these things work! I have caught literally millions of fish in my career, and these nets are markedly faster... as crazy as it sounds.
