[Costco] Spikeball/Slammo knockoff - $9.97

Just got back from Costco Scarborough, and they had a Spikeball/Slammo knockoff for ten bucks. There were 2 pallets left, even the cashiers thought it was a steal. Must be a new product. Steel hoop too instead of plastic like other brands.

It may be OK for small kids, but I bought Go-Gater after playing with an actual spikeball set and there is a major difference. The ball is crappier (lost air easy), the net loosens very quickly and the frame is noticeably lighter and less sturdy. It's that poor quality that it ruins the game, I had to bring it back after the first time I tried playing with it. Well worth the few extra $ to get a good set, something that you will go back to and actually enjoy instead of sticking it in a corner and never using it again.

I watched Spikeball on YT for the first time, and I still don't see the wide appeal - you have to do some crazy acrobatics to keep the ball/bag in the air with 4 people - most participants looked extremely athletic, so not exactly the type of game you play with 'normal' people.

Guess for $10 bucks, meh.

My thoughts exactly but for only $10 it might be worth a try.

Anyone spotted this in GTA?

Its been that price for the past month. I picked one up at either Scarborough or Markham.

I haven’t used it yet but after watching the video, I’ll likely return it as it looks too hard for my 4 year old to play
