Everything about the experience of getting this trampoline was satisfactory, including shipping and product quality. Set-up with a couple of friends and a good sunny day was fairly nominal. It seems that all the young people are enjoying the new trampoline. My only comment beyond this is intended to help prospective buyers know what they will be getting, as opposed to what they might think they are getting. The trampoline we had before, unfortunately, succumbed to a twister on the farm we live on, but that's another story. I found that trampoline about ten years ago at one of those road-side outlets. The price was a little less at that time compared to what the Skywalker costs now, and it did not have the cage attachment. Both trampolines were the same size and had the same number of springs. On the earlier one, the tubing was massively strong, about 3 or 3.5 inches in diameter and made of heavy gauge metal. The Skywalker is about 2 inches and not that heavy a gauge. The other trampoline had 9 inch springs which were over one inch wide - the Skywalker springs are about 6 inches and less than an inch wide. The earlier trampoline mat was also more substantial. Hence, on the earlier trampoline, it did not matter how much a kid or an adult weighed - that baby bounced the dickens out of you! The new trampoline is "softer" and I -- as a 6'2" male adult -- would not even consider jumping on it for fear of damaging something. The "cage" has its place for safety reasons, but frankly we think it looks ugly, so we took it off and are happier for it. Our kids are very responsible, so the level of "play" has to be factor in to any such decision. Hope this helps.
