This is my third rebounder and by far the best. My first was a cheap one from the sporting goods store. My body hurt from jumping on it. My next rebounder was top in class for rebounders with springs and I loved everything about it but the noise the springs made. Living in an apartment I had to time my workouts on rebounder to only when neighbors were not home. Although I had concerns about spending so much on a rebounder, I figured you can't put a price on health and used the payment plan. This rebounder is amazing! It is so quiet, and the bounce is perfect. Like others have said the craftsmanship really shows and it is obvious that is is very high quality. If you are reading this wondering if it is worth the investment, it is!
