For those of you who have kids that want to have a trampoline in the backyard, you no doubt have started researching different brands. One name you may see here and there is Bounce Pro.
I have never owned a Bounce Pro, but I have read a lot of the Bounce trampoline reviews on public forums and other sites. So I decided to research the Bounce Pro 15 ft. round trampoline. Here is what I found:
Several reviewers felt that the the Bounce Pro 15’’ trampoline is easy to assemble. Other trampolines have a lot of complicated pieces, but this one came with easy-to-understand instructions. With the help of another person, you can assemble this trampoline in under two hours.
The trampoline is 15 feet, which is the perfect size for a large backyard. It also comes with a very sturdy safety net. Many users believe that a safety net is all that is necessary to keep their child injury free. But the truth is more complicated than that. You can do lots to minimize the risk of injury, but a safety net is only one small part of the story. It’s important to have a safety net on the trampoline, but some nets tear easily or don’t provide enough support. The net that comes with the Bounce Pro, though, is pretty strong according to a few reviewers.
Another reason why users like this trampoline is the fact that it’s affordable. Other trampolines cost an arm and leg, but this model is significantly cheaper than other brands. However, to get the best prices, you will have to find it at a warehouse club like BJ’s or Sam’s Club. Online retailers have it, but it is much pricier than other brands.
Even though it’s affordable, the quality of the materials is questionable. Several reviewers complained of cheap materials and the inability of materials to withstand the elements over time. When I read comments like these, I really take notice, because durability is one of the most important aspects of a trampoline. Other models seem to hold up better.
The good things about this product
Overall, users that were happy with this product mentioned the following:
- The product is affordable.
- The net is very strong and doesn’t tear easily (at least when new).
- The trampoline has a lot of spring (more fun!)
- The surface is strong yet soft.
- It’s easy to assemble.
- It’s perfect for families
The bad things about this product
There are a few things about this product that users found annoying. The things that they didn’t like about the Bounce Pro include:
- Unfortunately, after a certain period, this trampoline starts getting some rust stains.
- It doesn’t support a lot of weight.
- Some reviewers said it tends to tear with prolonged use.
- If you don’t install it well, the springs can come out.
- It’s not intended for adults.
Despite it’s problems, I would give the Bounce Pro 15 footer a ‘fair’ rating. I would only recommend this product for someone who is looking to get only one season out of a trampoline.
