This is by far the worse product I have seen. It is no way easy to set up. The strings that attach the poles together broke; therefor it was impossible to assemble. The strings broke right away, with no real force. Look elsewhere for another net.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The net is not quick or easy to set up (not even for two people). I've used dozens of tents before and Skilz simply missed it on this one. The poles are extremely difficult to feed all the way through and after two weeks I've had the elastic rope inside the poles break and the nylon that the poles run through tear. It is extremely frustrating to try to set up and is better done once and just leave it up (but it takes up a lot of space with it's foot print).
On the positive side, it does do a good job stopping balls (I tried to use for my little league team to hit into off of a tee).
