The Durban nets look like they hang from the water surface while the dpi diagram has them starting 4m down until the floor?

I thought the fat bullet was designed for most conditions from 2-6ft?
My gun is a bit like that. Been on the east coast for 2 years and haven't used it (yes I missed the June swell).
