    Anyone have one of these and figure out an easy way to assemble? After tossing this thing across the diamond twice, I gave up on it.

    It's kind of hard to explain. But there's a sleeve on the bottom part of the net where you slide the base post into and once you do that it becomes so tight that it's damn near impossible to get the side posts in. With 2 people I guess you could do it...but a lot of times I don't have that luxury.

    I know this is fairly new, but was wondering if others had issues with this.....or if I'm just slow.....:(

    Looks the same as every other net out there. I have the Powernet and it's the same design, basically.
    I'm afraid you might just be slow. :D

    Lol, could be. The other net I had was not a closed sleeve at the bottom. It was all velcro and went on easy. Here's what I'm talking about:

    Put the bottom together, including the bar through the bottom sleeve.
    Slide the horizontal pole through the sides, and bunch it all up at the bottom.
    Put each pole in, then bend the right pole toward the left and begin sliding the sleeves up.
    When you get to the top, attache the loop to one pole.
    Bend the left pole toward the right and slide the sleeve the rest of the way up and attache to hoop.

    Appreciate this. Guess sometimes the obvious solution isn't so obvious to some. Thanks.

    I feel you...initially, it took a bit of time to set mine up...now, it's second nature.
