Here's a good net system comparison done by MD Bertz:

Spike Nashbar has a lowest price guarantee--if you do find it cheaper
elsewhere, Spike will match the price.  If they have it for $400, it's
somewhat unlikely that you'll find it (much) cheaper elsewhere.

If you're okay spending $300 or so the niftiest net system I've seen
is the Cobra:

It uses no guy wires--you pound sleeves into the ground at an angle
with a sledgehammer.  The poles slid into these sleeves, then the
poles flex at this outward angle to give great net tension without guy
wires, sand anchors or any of that stuff.  Have a look.
