Rated 1 out of 5 by Ewr1979 Broke Immediately
I bought this goal for basement use with plastic pucks/street hockey balls for indoor practice. The set up was easy enough, parts are labeled with numbers and easy enough for one person to set up alone, netting slips over piping easily enough. The problem is the plastic goal frame is not strong enough to handle a shot with any power behind it. With a single slap shot in the upper right corner it broke the goal in 3 places and the goal collapsed. I called the local Dick's store and let them know what happened with my recent purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by chuck not worth it.
I did not use it. I bought it and got about halfway through putting it together and decided not to use it. The plastic is cheap and very thin. Either build your own or get a metal one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Skate8 Was not what I expected
The price for this was to high considering its all plastic and not very sturdy after shooting a few balls at it the whole thing would lean to one side . This is a 4 year old shooting at it if my kid didn't flip out when I wanted to return it I would have .

Got this net for my bday, was easy to assemble, but the top folding parts broke when i knocked it down. doesnt work good in te wind and the top crossbars keep coming off the back vertical bar. DO NOT GET! trade it for a metal one of by the metal one instead!

One slap shot and a fitting broke. Return for the metal framed goal. Save yourself the trip back to the store and get the Metal goal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by artie_g very fragile
I picked this net since it was light weight, folded and appeared to go together easy. It was very easy to put together (10mins with my 8yo) but it barely survived assembly. I only expected to get maybe a few months out of it and then decide on buying a real metal goal but within 10 mins of first use the kids(8 &11) playing with a ball in the cold (not aggressive), broke the cross bar joint with a shot and then pipes slide out of joints at the corners after a bunch of shots. I taped up the joints and mended the cross bar which now prevents it from folding but makes it useful. Maybe a slightly heavy gauge plastic pipes and joint glue would make this a better product. Since the kids enjoyed playing with a full size goal net I will now purchase a heavy gauge steel goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by appleman GREAT VALUE
Nice size and quality for children, purchased for our 8 year old to play hockey and soccer, he loves it and the size is perfect, not too big, not too small, just right. Would suggest gluing the tubes together with plumbers glue, as long as you never want to disasemble the goals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Score! Cheap; Invest in a Metal Net
We purchase the net for our son for his birthday, and have had the same experiences everyone else has had. It's cheap and constantly is falling apart. Don't waste your time and money on this one. We purchased the metal hockey net for Christmas (around $100 vs. $70 for this plastic one). The metal hockey net is awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hockey Dad Very Poor Product
We got this for my son for Christmas. He took it out to shoot a hockey ball for about 2 hours.
Came in the house and asked if we can get replacement parts as the one foldable joint broke when he picked it up to re-position it the driveway.
I guess I should have just bout PVC at the local Lowe's and made a father son project out of it and made one that will last. Wait, I guess I'm going to do that since this one is broke.
We are Very disappointed in this product. I should have read the reviews first. I won?t be stung by this bee twice.

The net doesn't stay together well and multiple shots cause it to fall. There are much better nets for less money
