It's a really good net, good price, and I've never hated putting something together more in my life.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

Haha, so its not just me. Got one last week too, took me almost a week to put it together, broke 2 screws in the process...
What did you fill it with in yours?
I'm still debating water + some slabs on the top or full sand fill(9 packages of 20kg play sand)

if I use sand , it has to stay there forever i guess but its safer

I used sand, because the instructions call out that if you fill it with water and the base ever cracks, it could leak out without you noticing and become unstable, which made sense. Note that sand was also a colossal pain in the ass to get in....you either have to dry it out so it pours more cleanly, or spend forever putting it in cup by cup. Sitting there with a big funnel to put in 350lbs of play sand wasn't great.

I use water with mine (not the same brand, but same concept).

I do add water throughout the summer. Additionally, I empty the water in early October and store it in my garage until approximately the end of April.

It’s in perfect condition after more than 5 years of use. The system I have did cost me over $1,000 (Probably a combination of prices coming down over the years & mine having the NBA logo. Quality of this one looks really good).

I had another one at the cottage where I did the same thing with the water and it was stolen!

Thinking about getting this one from Costco for the cottage and using sand for the base. Let the thieves work for it, if they strike again! 🤬

We've had this net for 2 years outside, everything is just as tight as it was the day we put it together. Good quality.
