Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
Have to make sure that the black rubber/plastic part is fully pushed down before setting the measurement (mine was up about 3/4 inch the first time I tried it). When properly adjusted, the net height setting for men was 8 feet, 0 inches, but that is not the correct height. The net height according to the international and USA rule book should be 7 feet, 11 5/8 inches.
Love this! It's especially helpful for those of us who cannot reach the top of a men's net without a chair, or are needing to quickly measure the net in between matches during ratings. My only suggestion would be to create a telescoping version that could fit in a backpack. Other than that, it's great!
This product is great, but Still...I wish It could be shorter. It's aluminum, and it could have been made shorter. I would have like it the size of a backpack that I could carry with me to all my Volleyball games. This one, still I do carry to measure the net, but I have numerous times forget to take it with me and or forget it at the field. So, Please make this thing shorter, so It can fit in a backpack.
