We had the awesome opportunity to review a JumpSport trampoline recently (and Elite trampoline at that) and my initial reaction is WOOOOHOOOO! Most of us have bought trampolines from our local stores. We also have seen them blow away, fall apart, and just flat out break within a very short amount time right? Well one of the things I want to stress throughout this review, is that this JumpSport trampoline is of HIGH QUALITY-no ifs, ands, or buts. It’s exceptional.
First off is assembly of the trampoline. I opened the necessary boxes, scanned through instructions and began. You can immediately tell the quality of the structure. I loved it. We received 4 boxes total. While we did have a delay in shipping due to damage to a box, JumpSport was fantastic at getting a new one out ASAP! They sent me an email and even followed up to make sure I did receive the replacement.
So we started with the frame first obviously. My husband was at the barn talking to some fellers so I started without him. It tells you to layout the pieces in a circle. Simple enough!
Oh well look who decided to show up AFTER I have it laid out. That’s okay though, it was so easy I didn’t need a man! ;)
As you can see, it comes together super quick!! The directions provided are easy to understand, complete with photos, and concise. After frame is up, it was time to put the mat on. Another easy task! We unfolded the mat in the center to prepare.
It’s getting dark because UPS didn’t arrive until after 7pm. It didn’t stop us though!!! We could still see! As you can see, we placed the springs just like the instructions said. By doing it their way (and not your own way), it worked our perfectly and evenly. I keep bringing up quality and with good reason. The springs were strong, thick, and stout! You could definitely tell a HUGE difference in the JumpSport springs and other ones.
Truett couldn’t stand it, he had to jump immediately!!!
Then we made him right off so that we could put the protective pad on. Now I have to say….this pad is amazing. SOOO NOT like the ones bought in your local stores. It’s super high quality and very nice looking. Each end of a pad is connected and secured to a separate piece of velcro’d pad on bottom and on top. LOVE LOVE LOVE the design of it. And on top of that, it has safety loops to bring around the frame instead of the lame strings we all have dealt with.
We quit for the evening since it was dark but can you believe, it was the easiest, quickest 30 minutes ever?!!!
Now it’s time for the enclosure. I was scared of this part. Setting up a standing net around the trampoline was intimidating to me at first so I just took it step by step starting with pole assembly.
I let Tyler take my place on this part…..
But then I had to takeover on the actual net part….which was fine. It was easy to do!
I tightened all the places that needed tightening, secured spots that needed secured and VIOLA, we had our trampoline set up! We jumped our little hearts out!
Even my cat enjoyed the high quality pad.
Well that was fun yes? It’s completely clear why the JumpSport Trampoline cost more than the ones you buy in the stores…..QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY. I cannot stress that enough. It’s built to last for sure and ours has even endured golf ball size hail with no problemos! Bouncing on it is fun, feels safe, and the enclosure eases my mind when Truett is jumping on it, well, and his Dad too since he seems to fall into the net on occasion! HA!
This is for now but I have videos coming up in my next post so stay tuned. I also have health facts and tips for those of you wanting to get in shape, lose a little weight, and feel good! Until then…..
enclosure disclosure (haha..trampoline humor, get it?): JumpSport Trampolines sent me a trampoline, enclosure, and ladder to review. So far it has been the best thing ever for our family!!! Wel all jump. We all love it. We make it a family event! All opinions are my own and kept real here at A Cowboy’s Wife. That’s how I jump roll! (<–haha, more humor!)
