STX Double Sided Lacrosse Training Rebounder

by - verified purchaser From MARYLAND
Despite the challenges of putting it together, it is a very good rebounder.
Pros:
Great for working on hand eye coordination.
Cons:
The instructions for putting it together are worthless. After a few times of putting it together, we finally got it right!! Elastic clips are hard to put on. Difficult to move or put away, the clips break if dragged across the cement.

STX Double Sided Lacrosse Training Rebounder

by - verified purchaser From ERIE, PA
After it was put together, we are told by the lacrosse players in the family that it is great; rebounds well and they like the way you can change the shape. All in all for the value, it was well worth it.
Pros:
My son says it's great.
Cons:
Hard to put together; hard to move once it's put together....clips will break if dragged across cement or any other hard surface.

STX Double Sided Lacrosse Training Rebounder

Get some detailed directions and someone tell some of your tips/best bets for how to assemble this thing.
Pros:
Works very well. Is very stable.
Cons:
The directions STINK! You need a doctorate to figure out what parts go where. We finally got frustrated and used plastic tie-downs instead of the rubber band style tie-downs that it came with and you need to be the Incredible Hulk to put on!

Lacrosse Dad

by - verified purchaser From ASHBURN, VA
I read from others here that putting the net on is the most difficult part. That is true. My suggestion to any one putting this together is to put it on with the help of another person. My son and I teamed up on it and had it done in no time. But, if I was attempting it on my own it would have been much more difficult. //This is GREAT for the price!
Pros:
Good construction. My son started working with it immediately and the "pop" that it provided was terrific. //What I like most is the ability to practice catching passes and ground balls with the same setting (you don't have to adjust the backstop - use the lower section for passing and the upper section for ground balls). Light weight after assembly. //I also like the fact that two people can use it from opposite sides at the same time.
Cons:
The directions need to be clearer. There is no indication that you should loop the elastic bands on the tubes before assembly (guess I should have figured that out but I was just following the illustrations). I assembled it and then had to take it apart again in order to get the elastic bands on.

valuable purchase

by - verified purchaser From GUILFORD, CT
The STX pitchback was a valuable purchase. It went together easily and my 8 and 12 year olds were able to get most of it assembled. The elastic attachments are difficult to get on, but given the quality of the finished product, it was worth the struggle. The pitchback works well and has provided my 6 kids with hours of training in only the first weeks of possession. I recommend this commercial grade product to anyone looking for a training device.
Pros:
works great
Cons:
elastic attachments hard to put on

Disaster

by - verified purchaser From NEW YORK
Came with a defective part. SportsStop referred me to STX. STX service is impossible to get through to and they never follow up. I’m stuck with a bunch of metal pipe and out the money.
Pros:
I'll never know
Cons:
Service and Quality

Great, but difficult to assemble

by - verified purchaser From PENNSYLVANIA
Overall pleased with product, just wish it was easier to put together.
Pros:
My son loves it!
Cons:
The directions and picture were different from the one that i received. The elastic bands were very hard to get on the tubes and we ended up cutting our fingers. Some tips would have been helpful!

Great, but tricky to assemble

by - verified purchaser From VIRGINIA
Overall, I am very pleased with the product. Once we managed to get it together (which took about an hour) it worked great. My 3 kids have spent hours practicing with it.
Pros:
The price was good for the quality of the product.
Cons:
The "instructions" were a simple diagram with not written directions. If my husband had not been able to figure out how to assemble the thing, there is no way I would have gotten it together. The elastic bands were very difficult to get onto the tubing.

Good but not perfect.

by - verified purchaser From NEWNAN, GA
After repairing a window ($150) from my son practicing against the side of the house, the price for this item is pretty reasonable.
Pros:
Great for my son to practice alone. He spends hours on that thing nearly every day. It's nice and stable, doesnt' even need the anchors when used in grass. It's also pretty springy which gives good ball return.
Cons:
Need a little bit better instructions. The tubing, which the instructions cover are easy enough to assemble. The elastic bands, however, are another story altogether. They are tough to get on and require you to partially disassemble the tubing to get them on. Also, do not, I repeat, do not drag this thing across the concrete, gravel, etc. My son did and two of the elastic bands are now DOA and acouple of others are abraded pretty badly. A few extra bands in the kit would also be nice.
