As one of only two trampolines on our list of best trampolines with a basketball net included, our favorite feature of this Merax should be obvious. Before we talk about that, though, let’s first cover the basics.
This trampoline has a set of six W-shaped legs that cover most of the circumference, which does a fantastic job of supporting its 330-pound weight limit without wobbling.
The 72 springs may not keep the bounce going quite as long as others with up to 108 springs, since they’re likely to get stretched out more quickly from the increased force exerted on each one. These springs do have some things going for them, though. Since they are made from galvanized steel and protected against water, they should at least be able to resist rain and fog.
Fun and Safety All in One
Do you like playing basketball? If so, it’s no wonder that this trampoline has caught your eye. Thanks to its built-in basketball net you can play a bouncy game of H-O-R-S-E while burning three times as many calories!
Five padded poles support the safety net; users agree with Merax that these are strong enough to provide all the support and safety you’re likely to need. The purpose of these poles is not just to hold the hoop up so you can keep the basketball inside the trampoline’s playing area. The safety net surrounding the trampoline is meant to prevent people from falling over the edge when the play gets a little rowdy, and does a great job at that.
Although the net is designed to keep people off the springs, extra safety padding covers them for extra protection. This padding not only stops people from getting pinched between the springs if they lose their balance, it also helps to protect the springs from the elements.
Very Satisfied Customers
People who have bought one seem to love this rather basic trampoline. The reviews and ratings they’ve given it are often excellent. Let’s remember, though, that this doesn’t imply that it’s superior to a more expensive model. It simply means that people are impressed at the quality they receive for the price they pay.
The biggest concern about this trampoline is that it has confusing instructions, although the same can probably be said for half of the things you own.
Set aside a little extra time in case you struggle assembling stuff, but this trampoline’s value more than compensates for any frustration you’ll suffer while putting it together.
- It has a decent 330-pound weight capacity so multiple people can use it simultaneously.
- The springs are rust-resistant and covered with padding for extra longevity and safety.
- The basketball net makes fun activities other than bouncing possible.
- The poles that hold up the barrier net are padded and pretty sturdy.
- Some models of similar sizes have more springs, although a figure of 72 is pretty good at the price of this intermediate trampoline.
- You cannot adjust the leg height, so it has to be placed on a flat, level surface.
