Rated 2 out of 5 by jeff1016 Bungee ties fail to hold tight
This product takes about 30 min to set up the frame but another 30 min to try and tie the bungee cord ties around the net to hold it tight. After about 20 min of play, they begin to fail and the net breaks free, resulting in a loose net and more tying. The instructions are terrible and cause you to go back and unassemble two poles in order to move some of the bungees around to where they belong (which seems to not matter anyway because they don't work.) In order to unassemble two of the poles, you need to unscrew two brace brackets. Gave it two stars because when it is together, it works and the size is good. But I would not buy again and would not recommend to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela Son loves it!
My 14 year old son who plays select soccer has wanted a rebounder for a long time. This one seemed like a good price for good quality - hopefully it will hold up well. He set most of it up himself, with a little help from his dad on the stretching the net. It is large so it gives him some realistic practice and he doesn't have to chase his balls so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joncass Once it is together this product is the best!
Instructions are confusing, but the net rocks! Strong rebound and sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jkauttu third one
I obviously like the product. This will be my third one in 6 years. But they last about 2 years and then rust makes the frame unusable. 2 years is good at this price compared to some of the rebounders at $300 to $400. I might spray the tubes with Rustoleum this time and see if the frame will outlast the net.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MPS Hotspurs Doesn't stand-up to serious use
Great for the occasional rec-league player practice. If you have a committed higher level soccer player, they will enjoy it, but don't expect it to hold up for years. The stakes pull out, the bungees release (no problem with breaking though), and the net tears. Searching for a replacement net now after about 8-9 months of hard use, but no abuse or misuse by a 12 year and a 9 year old.
For the money you can buy a new one every year and still save $$ over the more expensive models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cz4soccer Great deal for money
Kids love it - as soon as they see it they want to kick a ball into it. Easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pam26 Great value, great quality
We have only had this product for a few weeks, so I can't speak to the durability, but so far the quality has exceeded our expectations. My husband and kids (ages 7 and 9) assembled it within about 20 minutes, and we have literally used it every day since. It works as a goal, but it also makes for good practice - the rebound makes it fun for the kids to take shots on goal even if there is no one else to play with. It is really sturdy and doesn't budge even when my husband and I shoot on it - great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by "Rust Resistant Tubing" It works good for the first year...
It was very good at first but after a year went by it was rusting so badly that I could not take it apart to take it to the new house I was moving too. Although I think it is actually worth it if you go on ebay to buy an extra net to go over the other and extra rubber bands for it. This makes the performance so much better. I did that the second time I bought it and it works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shooterfreak1 This rebounder has more potential
It works but could work better. The actual rebounding is great. The dimensions are mostly responsible for this aspect. However there are significant problems. The bungee cords do not stay affixed to the netting and frequently need to be reattached. The stakes that were provided to keep the rebounder from moving both vertically and horizontally, continue to work their way up requiring them to be pushed back down into the ground. My son is 10 and certainly not big, so the rebounder is not undersized for his level of activity. My son loves it and already has spent hours with it. If these things are fixed then you got a top notch product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clevey Excellent value
Perfect for my 10 year old girls in the backyard to practice soccer kicks. Great value for the $100 paid, with simple assembly, as well. Strong enough for older kids to use too. We are using it every day since it's so convenient to step outside and drive a few kicks into. Enjoy!
