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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SGOit Good Value for the Money
Overall I was impressed with the quality and ease of assembly. The only reason I did not give it five stars on Quality was for the ground anchors which I feel are kind of wimpy but at the end of the day they are not really needed.
I saw previous complaints about the bungee cords that hold the net in place becoming brittle after a while most likely from UV exposure. These are readily available at most hardware stores and in my mind a non-issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by luv2organize My boys live it!!
Easy assembly. Did not originally look like the netbwould stretch that far but obviously it does fit and very well at that. Some confusion with fastening the bungee system as there were no close up pictures. Ends up they simply tuck inside of themselves. Otherwise very easy. Much higher quality than I thought. Very sturdy even with my teen's kicks. Have recommended to friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kicker Good for little kickers.
I bought this for my son's 10th birthday. He loves it. Easy to setup. We have up in our backyard. He's out there every day kicking the ball against it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bubo Poor quality bungee cords
This is the second rebounder that we have purchased. We loved the first one! The newer model has bungee cords that attach the net to the frame. No directions are given on how to do this! We googled the question, and it appears others had the same problem. One guy figured it out, and we followed his directions. As my daughter is kicking her ball into the net, the bungee cords are breaking! I thought that they were coming un-knotted, but the elastic is actually breaking! What a disappointment.
