select best trampoline

Finding the right company to buy online could be a big headache especially if you’ve never tested the item or even seen it. All you see is a website, some pictures, and perhaps a video on their site. If that’s the case, why not just go to a local sporting goods or a Walmart or Costco and just purchase one. These local stores are even cheaper than the online companies. So why not just buy it from them.

Well, many trampoline enthusiasts prefer all the bells and whistles that come with a high end trampoline. What separates one trampoline from another? What makes some trampoline cost over $2000 while others are like $500? There are many components that come with a high end trampoline. First thing to look at when purchasing a trampoline is their steel gauge. How thick is their steel? Always compare each company’s steel gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the thicker the steel. Steel is the most expensive part of the trampoline and the most important part. A strong steel support frame can endure a higher jumping velocity without the steel bending at impact. Whereas a weak support frame will bend at impact thus loses its bounce. Another area to look at is the spring count, the length, the shape. A quality spring will have more coils than others. Longer spring coils will have more flexibility. And tapered springs will provide the best strength for trampoline bounce. Next, look at the jumping mat. Mats that are made from Permatron material from the US is the best material you can get. Anything else is inferior or imported which will eventually deteriorate within 6 to 12 months. While many companies brag about their Permatron material, make sure that the stitching at the V-rings is at least 8 layers. This is the weakest point of the mat. All the stretching and pulling being exerted is at the v-rings being tied by these stitching. And the next thing to look at is the netting. While many advance jumpers prefer not to use nets, keep in mind that the one cause for trampoline injuries is not having one. I prefer nets being on the outer part of the spring pad rather than inside of the spring pad. This allows more jumping surface and one can sit on the edge if need be.

So when comparing trampolines, if you review all these points, you will definitely find the best trampoline for your money. Cheap trampoline is not necessarily the best trampoline.
