Simply put: it's everything you've seen the positive reviews say. It's SO much smoother than a steel-spring unit. It's SO easy to use it for long periods of time due to the gentleness of the bungee-springs. It clearly is helping me with lymphatic stagnation health problems. The price is a bit of an issue, but yes it is a great mini-trampoline, the Rolls Royce of a so-called rebounder.
