I run a 4 court gym that does nearly exclusively volleyball with high usage every day of the week. Over the past few years we have probably bought net antennas from every major manufacturer, including Tachikara, Tandem, Porter, etc.
ALL of the clamp style antennas are junk IMHO and not any single brand lasted through more than a few months of use. Sometimes the clamp at the top of the net would break, but most often, the break would appear at the bottom of the antenna, generally where the metal rod inserts into the plastic bottom housing/clamp. I probably have 20 sets of broken antennas in the equipment closet!
Last October, 2012, I finally decided that if I had to replace them every few months, I'd rather do so with sub-$50 antennas than $100 antennas. We purchased 4 sets of these, and amazingly, over a year later we're still using the same ones! I highly recommend these and hope that every one simply stops buying the poorly designed and poorly manufactured clamp style antennas until someone comes up with a design that is durable and will actually last.
