If you need some direction finding the right trampoline, consider the BouncePro 14-foot trampoline. Not only is it the ideal size for medium to large backyards, but it’s also great for jumpers of all ages. Its extra accessories (Spinner Flashlight Zone and Electron Shooter) make it a wonderful choice for families with kids.
This kids trampoline comes with a galvanized steel frame and UV-resistant jump mat. The Steel Flex safety enclosure has padded poles and UV-resistant PE netting for increased security. The enclosure also has a steel-cabled ring top for additional support.
You can choose to add the Spinner Flash Litez or the Electron Shooter as an accessory during purchase. The Spinner Flash Litez includes the Bonus Litez that attaches underneath the trampoline for light-up fun, which doesn’t interfere with your child’s safety. The motion-activated Electron Shooter includes targets that are easy to set up and attach to the enclosure ring.
Age and Weight Limitation
The BouncePro 14′ trampoline is suggested for jumpers, ages 6 and up. Like most trampolines, only one jumper should bounce at a time for safety reasons. The weight limitation is 200 pounds.
Bounce Pro 14′ Manufacturer
Sportspower Ltd. has been manufacturing trampolines and outdoor play equipment for at least 20 years, with retailers in the U.S., Mexico, United Kingdom, South America, Australia and New Zealand. They take pride in developing high-quality, innovative equipment, which meet industry-tested standards.
What’s Included in the Shipment
The Bounce Pro 14-foot trampoline ships in two boxes. You’ll receive a UV resistant jump mat, high-quality pad protector, and the accessory you selected during purchase – the Spinner Flash Litez or the Electron Shooter with targets. The Steel Flex enclosure includes padded poles, PE netting and a steel-cable ring top.
If you are apprehensive about loading the springs that hold the mat to the frame, you’ll find a spring-loading tool with your shipment, for easier installation.
What Customers Say About Shipment
While customers love the trampoline, one owner suggested buying a ladder, as it does not include one. Another was disappointed that the lights did not come with batteries.
In May 2012, there was a recall due to the brown enclosure mesh (netting) breaking apart. The recall applied to BouncePro 14-foot trampolines that were sold from February 2009 through February 2012. Owners were to discontinue using the trampoline and request a replacement black mesh from Sportspower at 888-965-0565.
There have been no other safety concerns reported, relating to the mesh since the replacement.
What Customers Say About Safety
Owners love that the enclosure holds tightly, making it safer for younger jumpers and keeping them from falling out. On the other hand, some mentioned that the springs do not have much bounce, which prevents a good bounce and causes the trampoline to somewhat sag.
The mother of a toddler reviewed the trampoline’s safety positively, noting that the poles keep the shape at the top of the net in place. Another parent was impressed with how secure the net was.
What Customers Say About Durability and Quality
Parents with energetic kids were satisfied with the durability of the trampoline. The poles keep the shape of the netting. This prevents sag and keeps the frame in place. Customers note that the frame is lightweight and easy to move.
One reviewer suggested that buyers invest in anchors to secure the trampoline during stormy or windy conditions. Without these anchors, the enclosure poles are said to bend when flipped, even though the frame survived.
There were a few complaints that the lights that came with the Bounce Pro were not as bright as advertised.
What Customers Say About Assembly
Several owners were satisfied with the decent instructions that came with the trampoline and found it easier to assemble. They especially loved the spring-loading tool that came with the shipment. Assembly took approximately one to two hours.
Most needed an extra hand to complete the installation, but a few were able to install the BouncePro on their own.
Where You Can Purchase a BouncePro 14′ Trampoline
The BouncePro 14′ Trampoline is sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and a handful of other online retailers.
The Bounce Pro 14′ trampoline costs about $260.
Care and Maintenance
As with other trampolines, proper care and maintenance will extend the life of your BouncePro. Depending on your location, this may include storage for the winter, anchors for high winds, or replacement of pads due to general wear and tear.
Why the BouncePro 14-foot Trampoline is Recommended
The majority of owners love this trampoline and only a handful do not.
Overall, the BouncePro is a safe, fun and durable outdoor equipment, great for larger areas and families with children, ages 6 or older. While families love the BouncePro with or without the bonus toys and lights, its innovative games make it stand out from other kids trampolines.
