Rated 4 out of 5★ by PMacBiker Excellent Volleyball Set for the Money This Park & Sun Tournament Flex 1000 Volleyball Set is an excellent buy for the money -- easy set-up (i.e. sleeved net for pole insertion, tension ropes, etc. -- but still allow some time to get it done); quality parts. Just two "notes of interest / caution": 1) The metal tension clip rings that go over the top of net sleeve to help keep net up on the pole are extremely "tight" and caused some surface friction damage to the net sleeve on first application. I recommend using some light oil lubricant on the two "collar" contact points of the clip ring so it might slip on easier without damaging the net sleeve cover. Otherwise -- works great. 2) One reason I purchased this particular set is because it includes a leather, stitched volleyball, making the complete set great for the price. We have a ball-&-bike air pump with very accurate air-pressure meter, so we know we inflated the ball to precisely 5.75 psi (the recommended inflation is between 5 psi and 7 psi). We played three hours of volleyball (no one ever kicked the ball or abused it any way) and the stitching broke along half of one of the seams. We easily could have just bought another volleyball, but -- again -- the "principle" was that we purchased a complete set with a reliable, quality ball. The ball seems / feels / plays like a quality ball, but this ONE could have been an exception. Anyway -- we called customer service and ended up returning the entire set for a new set to get a new ball. (Customer Service was very helpful.) May seem a little extreme, but it's the "principle of the thing." We are going to inflate this ball ONLY to 5 psi. 06/30/2012
