Quest Club Level Badminton Set 2013
Product seems fine if you can get it together.
Diagrams don't match up with the actual product in the directions, which is annoying but not so detrimental that it stops you from setting up the net.Some of the diagrams, however, are downright confusing with poor wording to explain them - especially when it attempts to tell you how to use the Tensioner Pieces. For one, it labels 3 different pieces as a "Tensioner" - and then doesn't clarify exactly which one it means for you to use at that moment. It then attempts to describe a knot which, to be quite honest, I have no idea if I even have it done the way it was telling me to, and that was after trying to decipher the silly thing for 15 minutes.However, after bumbling through the directions, the net seems to be sturdy (and it might not even be setup properly), the Raquettes decent, and the birdies look good as well. I don't like that the stakes are made of plastic, however, so I dropped some of the quality for that. They're likely to need replacing within a year or two, and given the price of this set, I would think that it's meant to last longer than that.Didn't set up the guidelines yet for the foul line, but after how long it took to set up, I say screw the rule, I have badminton.

I wanted the more expensive Park and Sun set but this was the only brand I saw in the store. When I got home i tried to set it up. First there was a part missing so I went to the hardware store to get what I needed. Then I ran into difficulty setting it up. The directions and pictures make no sense. The set as a whole felt very cheap for the money. After continued difficulty trying to set it up I gave up and will return this in the morning.
