I started looking at rebounders about a month ago, and soon came across Bellicon and all the reviews about how it was the best out there. However, when I saw the price, I decided there was no way I could spend so much, especially since i couldn't try it out. I continued to do research, and decided to buy a spring rebounder, but then saw a side-by-side comparison on youtube of the Bellicon and the Cellerciser. The squeaking of the Cellerciser was awful. So, after a lot of thought, I took a leap of faith, and ordered the Bellicon. I am SO HAPPY!! As soon as I took it out of the box, all my doubts vanished. The high quality was so obvious as I screwed the legs on. But the bounce is amazing - so soft and QUIET! I feel like I'm getting a great workout, but no jarring in my knees or back, and it's so much fun! I know I will use this piece of equipment for a long time. It's a lot of money, but I see it as an investment in my health. Thank you Bellicon!
