Easton Junior Playback Elite
We set the upper angle to be inline with the bottom part, making one single surface plane. The kids use it for practicing basic throwing and catching (pre-k and kindergarten ages), with baseballs, basketballs, and my daughter even bounces her plush toys. Hey, if it encourages her to practice, so be it. :)
Some of the tethers were not needed, or they would be too loose. Not sure where to store them... I'm sure we'll lose some over time. But can't really fault the item for providing extras to keep up with.
The bounce is pretty good, and the device doesn't fall over too easily like some others. I threw a soccer ball at it from about 20 feet and it bounced back to me. The frame shifted a little, but didn't fall over. I supposed if I hit it high and hard enough, with a heavy ball, I could make it tumble back, but for kids, this is perfect.
Materials and paint coating seem excellent.
I made up a neat little drill for him to work on his infield defense without needing a partner. I tell him to pretend he's playing shortstop or second/third base. I then set up a bucket of balls next to him, this playback net in front of him, and a Bownet big mouth baseball net to his left (about as far as the first baseman would be). He grabs a ball from the bucket, throws it at this net, immediately sets up to field the grounder that is bouncing back, works on properly trapping the ball, then works on getting it to the first baseman quickly and with accuracy (aiming for the opening on the big mouth). He works through an entire bucket of balls (about 30), walks the bucket over to the big mouth, refills it, then sets up to start the drill again.
Needless to say, I'm very happy with my purchase of this net along with the Bownet Big Mouth.
Easy to put together. Doesn't tip over when a ball is thrown at it. Seems pretty well constructed. The s-hook attachment bands are pretty well constructed, but tend to slip off the back portion of the netting when the top part of the pitchback is angled backwards (and not straight up and down like shown in the pictures), but that is not a big problem since my son uses mostly with the top part angled (to practice catching fly balls). A good size pitchback for him, overall. So far so good!
