I've bought two net's and the one I used most just fell apart at the orange area with the ring hole. You do need to buy additional string to tie the net to the poles. I have used it at the public park near my house every Saturday and it's been really great so far. I have been setting up the net really tight and used a type of truckers knot. I do recommend this net despite it's durability only lasted me 2 years. Just make sure you buy extra string and don't make the net as tight as you can.
The net was kind of hard to set up at the park; because i need to climb up like 5 feet above the ground to get to the top. I obviously didn't know how to tie the strings so it was a little loose (low). However, my friends had a great time playing because they were beginners. I returned the net after wards and got the one that cost $130 something i believe. it has no strings, just a circle hoops; so i could quickly insert it onto the pole. But if you want something to play for several years and you search on to tie a net, then this item isn't that bad.
The net works great and the cable line at the top is connected really well. I was a little disappointed that there were a few places in the net that weren't connect with the string creating larger holes, but it's an easy fix.
