Overall very nice. I would buy it again and I do recommend it. It is big and the material is very tough. The tubing is heavy and solid. The bracing and welds are definitely adequate for the job of returning a little ball.
The triangular bracing that connects the legs at the articulation points is undersized but adequate. The tubing it manages is about 20% wider than the spread between the 2 triangular braces, so when it is snugged up the bracing bends a little. I have read about broken welds and I suspect this is where it would occur. This bracing should be the same size as the tube diameter to avoid this. To get arund it, I inserted a couple washers for spacing to keep the braces square. This is the biggest issue, although again, bouncing a little ball would not stress it, although (un)folding the unit would cause it to flex and eventually break if it was done imperfectly.
Also, the orange "powder coating" on my unit flaked off where the pieces slid together during assembly. This is clearly a substandard powder coating job. I know this can happen if powder coating is applied over metal that is not cleaned properly prior to application, for example, oil residue not completely removed with soivent; or may be it was not baked properly. When done properly, powder coating is very tough and does not just flake off. In fact, you typically need a sandblaster to remove it efficiently.
But the parts that count - the springs, fabric, and tube heaviness are all there and overall this thing will last a long time with a little care. It is big enough to really wail on and is good enough for any level of player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris2April excellent quality, easy to move around
Quality so much higher than the net style rebounders. Very sturdy yet balanced weight well so our eleven year old son can move in and out of the garage by himself. Looks like it will last for many years of LAX skill work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jay Horrible product
Bought for my 13 year old for Christmas and tried to set it up today. Instructions was very poor and pushing netting back is a hazard. Read the review of the guy who hurt his arm!
Got to step 3 and because of the pressure the springs put on the metal when I folded the piece out as instructed the metal buckled and welding broke.
Look nice and sturdy but welding broke and this is a hazard and it is use to hold back the spring.
Piece of junk - will be returning it to store as soon as crowds die down

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill Hope it works as promised
Package was not in great shape when it arrived (should have been our first clue). My husband started the assembly process and found pieces did not match up. Call the company as directed...customer service was lacking....after drilling holes and creatively adjusting to match up pieces..it is assembled...just hope it works as promised...disappointed to have issues with this piece of equipment.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by PC Excellent quality
HEAVY, Strong and sturdy, very well constructed...very easy to assemble IF, and this is a big IF....if you take the directions that came with it and throw them away immediately...then go on u-tube and watch a video (easy to find) on how to assemble it... after you have done this, assembly will take about 5 minutes.
Other than the directions, FANTASTIC!....and if you somehow injure yourself putting it together (as at least one other reviewer apparently did)...stay away from machinery and sharp objects.

I was very pleased with this product overall. Its size is awesome, my kids love it. I'm usually pretty good at putting stuff together and this was challenging to follow pictures..... I pulled the wrong side out first and then couldn't get other side out due to springs- then when hubby helped we realized it was due to the diagrams.This wouldn't prevent me from buying again- I just wish the instructions were more detailed thats it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben W EZGoal Lacrosse Rebounder - SOLID!
We absolutely love this rebounder! It has been an excellent piece of equipment for our 6th grade son as he learns the game of lacrosse. This way we don't have to be with throwing with him all the time; he can practice on his own as well. The material on the Rebounder is like trampoline material - really strong and taut. Unexpected bonus is that our daughter has been using it for her volleyball serving and overhead spiking as well!
Only downside is it is expensive, but if it lasts for 4-5 years, then it will be worth it.
