STX Double Sided Lacrosse Training Rebounder reviews

Great buy

by - verified purchaser From BETHEL, CT
Despite poor instructions, the unit is easy to put together My kids love it Unbeatable for the price
Pros:
Price Sturdiness/durability Simplicity of assembly
Cons:
The bottom pipes should have feet - as currently designed, the elastic bands touch the ground which subjects them to too much wear and tear

4 stars
Pros:
It's great now that it's set up...but setting it up was quite something. I loved the Ouija Board-style directions. And those random leftover metal things are a mystery. Best advice from this site was "put the bungees on the tubes first." Thank you!!!
Cons:
The directions. The directions. The directions.

STX Double Sided Rebounder

by - verified purchaser From TAMPA, FL
Overall this is a really great product....very sturdy, and works well. When assembling, be sure to put the elastic bands on before assembling the pipes. The bands are extremely tight and difficult to stretch around the pipes. We used screwdrivers to pull them, as a previous reviewer recommended. Use the photo on the box to determine approximate placement of the bands. Other than the lack of instructions, this is an awesome product!
Pros:
Good quality, solid frame. Easy to move. Great price.
Cons:
As others have mentioned, the instructions are laughable...completely worthless. Would be great if rebounder could fold flat, as it is difficult to store.

Great rebounder

by - verified purchaser From CICERO, NY
Great rebounder - awful directions. Read comments first. Took us a half-hour to assemble.
Pros:
I liked that the rebounder was double sided and that the net was easy to stretch to fit the area. Very sturdy will last for years to come.
Cons:
The directions were awful. The diagram was followed exactly however out assembly resulted in a crooked rectangle. We flipped one side to the other to correct the squareness which differed from the lame instructions. Putting the bungees on the poles first prior to assembly and use of common sense while looking at the box picture helped us.

Nice Rebounder

by - verified purchaser From NJ
Read all the reviews on assembly nightmares - listen up! Go to the STX website and get the (much better) directions off their website!!!! Hubby didn't have much of a problem at all. Seems to be a really good purchase, my 13 year old loves it.
Pros:
double sided great for drills, lightweight but stable, price
Cons:
none

Great Site. Great Product. Super Fast Shipping.

by - verified purchaser From BUFFALO
If using this on concrete or pavement Be sure to tape or cover the bungees that are in contact with the ground because they will wear down fast and break.
Pros:
I recieved the product within a week after purchasing. The product is awesome. Exactly what I expected
Cons:
Only downfall is storing it. Doesn't really collapse unless you wanna take some of it apart, so it take up a lot space.

rebounder

by - verified purchaser From COLORADO
Get a proctor for the bottom bars or have locking wheels to keep the bottom bars off the ground when you move it( to protect the elastic bands)
Pros:
It works great once it is put together
Cons:
There needs to be a protector for the bungees on the bottom . If you move the rebounder the elastic bands fray right off.

Excellent

by - verified purchaser From FRANKLIN MA
My kids love this rebounder, and spend hours a day using it. I like the fact they can use it at the same time since it's double sided. I did warn my husband about the lack of directions based on previous reviews, but he had no problem putting it together.
Pros:
Very sturdy, nice quality, double sided, price, kids love it.
Cons:
none.

Great Product

by - verified purchaser From LONG ISLAND, NY
Read the reviews to get good tips.
Pros:
easy to put together, just make sure you slide the bungees on before you put the pipes together. Both my son and daughter love it.
Cons:
Like everyone else the instructions are good for putting together the pipes, but that's it.

Great Product

by - verified purchaser From BIRMINGHAM, AL
To the Suwanee mom - the metal bands are for the inside of the poles - they are the locking mechanisms (you'd see if you could look inside the tubes before assembling). My husband figured out it.
Pros:
My son loved it from the start (and neighbors w/ the trampoline rebounder are envious of his!). Very good quality.
Cons:
As reviewed elsewhere - the directions are terrible. We used the recommendations from earlier reviews - Thanks!! My husband & I used the pics on the box. One of the bands snapped while we were putting it on, but there are a bunch of them so far so good!

Tip for putting on bands

by - verified purchaser From SUWANEE, GA
My twelve year old son and I put it together. I used the photo on the box to figure out the placement of the bands. Of course the photo on the box was not of the rebounder in the box, but it was good enough. I slipped the band over a flat head screwdriver, and put the screwdriver agains one side of the tube. Then I used locking pliers to grab the hook on the band to stretch it open. That technique allowed me to "woman-handle" the bands on the tubes. My son used another pair of pliers to pull the hooks around the tubing. There are four flat metal bands that came in the parts packet of the rebounder. I still have no clue what they are for. If anyone knows, please advise.
Pros:
I like the quality of the product. It is strong and sturdy
Cons:
I wish it could fold down for easier storage. The instructions are a joke

STX Rebounder

by - verified purchaser From CHARLESTON SC
Once assembled, this is a great product/value. The instructions were awful and not even a mention of having to get the stretchy loops over the frame!
Pros:
Works great... kids love. Can be used for both lacrosse and baseball.
Cons:
The instructions are pitiful. I have rarely seen anything claiming to be instructions to be so lacking in help or direction. The loops which hold the hooks need to be uniform length -- some barely fit over the tubing -- requiring a real struggle.

Nice Product...

by - verified purchaser From SOUTH CAROLINA LOWCOUNTRY 12/19/10
Make sure you install the net bungee loops before assembling the tube frame, and slide them over the smaller ends of the tubes. Takes two people to assemble, and with common sense should take 30 mins or so to put together. Once complete, it is a great product, very versatile for two people to throw against or do drills. My son likes it better than the larger (and more expensive) trampoline-style rebounders . Seems to be a good value.
Pros:
Versatile, lightweight, well-priced. Easy to adjust rebounding angles.
Cons:
The instructions are essentially worthless, and the product pictured on the box is apparently an older product. Other than the tube assembly directions, you may as well throw the direction sheet away.

The elastic rings need to be put on the tubing b4 assembly. We figured out by having one person hold half of the ring with their thumbs, and the other person roll the rest of the ring over the other side with thier thumbs it goes ALOT faster.
Pros:
Easy to put together, lighter than expected. My daughter loves it, able to adjust the angle by herself.
Cons:
An added sheed of instructions. Lableing how many hooks go on each section (ie accross the top, sides, bottom, etc). We used the photo on the shipping box as a templete, had the frame put together b4 realizing we had a different rebounder! Used the pic of ours in the mag. that came with it to adjust the hooks.

fortunately, I had read some previous comments and knew to put the loops on first, so putting it together wasn't that hard.
Pros:
My son loves it! Says it works better than anything else he's tried.
Cons:
instructions need to tell you to put the loops on all of the poles first, then assemble it.
