This product works well for individual workouts. Great product to work by yourself on foot work and the proper way to field ground balls when the weather outside won't let you go out. My son has been using it for the past 4 years in our barn during the winter or when he can't find some one to throw to him.
Great pitch back! Bought this when my son was born 7 years ago. At the time it was more for me to be able throw on my own without having to find someone else to throw or field grounders. Very sturdy and capable of taking whatever I threw at it. 7 years later it is still going strong and is now also used as a lax bounce back too! I am looking to replace the rubber straps for a livelier action off the net after 7 years but haven't found them yet. Thanks Easton for a great product that has never let us down!
Great Customer Service. I purchased the 5' pop-up net over a year ago. One of the poles broke during practice, so it was only used a few times. I finally got around to calling customer support over a year later and they are sending me a new pole free of charge, which saves a lot of money from having to purchase a new one. For that, I will stick to Easton. I do like the net for hitting and working on throwing accuracy. Folding the net is a bit of a challenge. Thanks Again.
They're great, Operator errors cause problems. First, the poles fall down if you don't install the rubber stoppers on the back. Operator error. Second, I have a 10 and a 12 year old and they both use it and it has never tore. I hate to doubt people, but sounds like they got a lemon. As for tearing twice, doubt it. Third as for how easy/hard it is to break down...there's definitely a knack to it. Grab two corners and twist. Once you figure it out, it's easy. But...the fact that you haven't figured it out doesn't mean it's Easton's fault. I like the net. My only complaint would be how cheap the case is. The net is only convenient if you can fold it up, carry it and/or put it away. If the case tears, then what?
Awesome Net. This is a great training aid. Pops up in seconds and comes down just as fast. Reading all of the comments, you can't force it to fold up. Don't let kids or other parents fold it up if they don't know what they are doing. Easton has a great video on how to fold it, I highly recommend watching it. I use this mainly in my basement for my 9 and 10 year old to hit when cold or raining. I also use it with all 3 of the teams I work with. In fact, I have taken quite a few swings myself and had no issues, it is quite durable and has held up well, 2 years and still looks new.
