Rated 1 out of 5 by jrb Horrible instructions
Pole #11 and #12 do not connect therefore rendering the rebounder completely useless!
I will definitely be taking this product back to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DWooderson Much Better Than Expected; Very Pleased so Far.
The reviews are not good for this rebounder, I'm not sure why.
Assembly: My 8 year daughter put the frame together herself in under five minutes. It has simple spring clips. That part was easy (I helped with the three hand screws, no tools required). Installing the net certainly took more time, but I wouldn't call it difficult. There are 48 bunge hooks. My 10 year old son and I put 14 on each side (and the corners), and 10 on the top and 10 on the bottom. Then, you just hook them to the net. Pretty easy. The last step is the 24 velcro straps that make the blue part wrap around the frame. You really have to put a lot of tension in the net to get those all the way on, but I just used my hand to pull the net toward the frame, and they all went on without much fuss. Installing the net took around 30 minutes total.
We use the pro quality rebounders at the high school at least 2x week. The frame on this rebounder is nowhere as beefy/sturdy as those, but it's not bad. This rebounder is plenty sturdy for home user. This rebounder is more bouncy than the high end ones, which I like better. The net area on this rebounder is very comparable to the high end rebounders. It would be nice if this came with a target area in the middle, I will probably use some sort of tape or ribbon to create the same.
Overall: I feel that this is an excellent value, maybe the poor reviews lowered expectations, but in my opinion, this is a good quality product for a very fair price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dodson56 It does the job.
The directions for this product were below average. Though it isn't that difficult to put together, they were still horrible done. It is VERY difficult to put together the net with the directions (the frame is easy). Overall the rebounder is pretty flimsy, and tends to bend after 10 minutes of using it, so you have to go up and fix that which is annoying. I do not think this product is worth the amount you have to pay, but it does do the job pretty well. Also, the box was super damaged when I bought it in store.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lax kid It's ok...
Well, after almost a week of use, the screw striped and it does NOT stand up straight. The instructions were difficult to follow. You have to pass really hard to get the ball back at a reasonable pace. I would try to avoid this item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brea G Bit of a let down:(
Love the idea of a rebounder for my 9 yr old daughter. Bought this one and it does the job,but is hard to assemble and is bent!! The directions are horrible and very hard to figure out. She uses it but one of the screws is stripped,the next day! And it's bent..useable but expected better!

Rated 2 out of 5 by xobot Directions?
Directions? My 5 year old could write better directions. Seriously, did anyone from the company behind this product actually read and try to follow them? The company can feel free to contact me and I will assist them write better directions for a small royalty fee. I promise I will not get any help from my 5 year old.
Still trying to figure out how the bungees are supposed to attached. I think I've got it figured out, but may require more trial and error.

My whole family enjoys using the Rebounder. It was a little difficult to put together but no other issues with quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sam Not worth the money
This product was terrible! The instructions that came with it were useless! Once my mother figured it out (she hopes it's right!), we went to move it to put it away....it is very flimsy. It is not easy to move by myself because of this....it was a nice try mom, but definitely not worth the money!!!!!! (would've preferred other equipment instead!!!!!) I don't recommend this product!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sean LAX bounceback
This bounce back has some small, but in the end, serious quality issues.
First the instructions are straight out of China- a one-pager with illegible 'photos' of the assembly process that is complex enough to warrant better directions. Specifically the net is held to the frame with a lot of little bungee cords. It was not entirely clear, without some trial and error, how the bungees worked between the net and the frame.
Then the hardware used to join the sections is sub-par. On our model, some of the plastic tightening devices- that are on the tubes and allow one to adjust the angle of the bounce back- were broken before I even opened the package. The rest broke upon assembly. Which renders this entire thing useless since it can't stand up.
I should have taken it back at that point but this thing is huge once it's assembled and it was daunting to think about disassembling it and then driving it back to the store.
So I improvised and match-drilled holes all over the place and used lag-bolts I had laying around for the adjustment.
I'm not happy about this.
I do not recommend this product unless you have a lot of patience and a machine shop at your disposal.
