The main problem is some of the nodes are on the inside, while others are on the outside. If you're trapped, you can only shoot at the inside ones. I normally just rotate the camera, spam Tab, and as soon as I get a bite, open fire. Do that a couple of times and the entire web collapses (or at least gives you plenty of holes to escape through).
It's a bit annoying how quickly enemy ships can chew their way out of my own Weaver's webs compared to me escaping from an NPC one, though
