We consider this one of the best advanced trampolines currently on the market.
What is meant by an “advanced” trampoline, though?
For one thing, it’s built to handle heavy, intense usage. It’s sturdier, gives a better bounce, and is, all around, made from better materials than intermediate or beginner models.
So if you’re serious about trampolining, have a teenager who’s taking it or gymnastics as a sport, or just intend to use it on a regular basis over the course of many years, this is one of the trampolines you would do well to look at closely.
Attention to Important Details
This trampoline is available in three different sizes, each with a different number of springs. The 12-foot round has 84 (more than you’ll find on the typical intermediate trampoline). The 14-foot round boasts 96 and the 15-footer has 108.
Regardless of which size you select, it comes with durable zinc-plated, rust-resistant, 8.5-inch springs designed to ride out the years and give you some extra bounce.
The springs themselves are outside of the safety net and, therefore, aren’t likely to be an issue while someone is jumping inside. It’s the safer solution. However, should somebody lean an arm on them while watching someone else bounce, getting a painful pinch is a real possibility. In this case, though, the covered springs will give enough protection.
The overall weight capacity for this trampoline is lower than that of the other two advanced models on this page. This implies that its springs and jump surface may not be quite as strong as those competitors, which you would expect from one of the least-expensive advanced trampolines.
Unfortunately, even when you have your heart set on a high-end trampoline, there’s still a tradeoff between saving money and high weight capacity.
If you want to have four or more people using the trampoline at the same time, you’re going to have to pay a little more.
If, on the other hand, you want a pretty capable trampoline for an affordable price (about half as much as the other advanced trampolines), this one could be perfect for you.
Overall, consumer impressions of this trampoline have been very positive. Some users initially had complaints about the confusing way the instructions manual was written. The company stepped up and addressed the problem almost immediately, writing a completely new manual with more straightforward instructions.
Apart from this and a few occasional problems, the experiences people have had are good. Consumers say it offers a lot of bounce, is fun to use, and well-built.
As mentioned, you can find better backyard trampolines, but this one is very impressive at the price.
- Since the net is on the inside of the springs, there is an added element of safety.
- The 8.5-inch springs offer extra rebound for higher jumps.
- Six strong W-shaped legs provide stability.
- Comes with a 10-year frame warranty.
- The 330-lb weight limit is lower than many other advanced trampolines, but this one's affordable price makes that less of a letdown.
