The directions were terrible with pages out of order, very little detail, and tiny photos impossible to decipher. However, its assembly was easier than the PROBounce because the looser bungee cords went on comparatively easier than the ultras on the PROBounce. The hardest part was the handlebar which really needed 4 hands, not just two to assemble. The handlebar was put on backwards because of a photo showing the knob on the mat side and I may be leaving it that way. The way I have the two bungees lined up, I can use the handlebar while on the PROBounce so I may like it in reverse LOL
Sadly, it is higher than the PROBounce and possibly the Jumpsport550 but lower than the Jumpsport 350/370. The mat is looser but has a nice bounce without going airborne and very quiet.
It seems very sturdy and well made so I see absolutely no point in getting the expensive alternative from jumping-studio.com just to avoid its assembly. * Just skip the handlebar altogether if you prefer LOL
Aliexpress.com also offers a 48 inch round bungee with 6 legs which may be a good choice to save a few bucks too. Just have to settle for looser bungees than the PROBounce Ultras.
(stay tuned for more impressions after I do a real workout tomorrow morning)
Of course if you prefer to spend more for a Bellicon or jumping-studio hexagon that is an option also but again IMHO, it is not which model you buy but how you use it that counts. Guess I have to do another self-recording to show how wonderful the bounce is on the ibounce Hexagon!
*ETA: the handlebar can make a noise so consider trying the hexagon without putting the handlebar on to decide if you really want it attached.
