This trainer might not be really budget friendly for many people but it’s very affordable when you compare this with electric basketball rebounding machine. When I purchased this equipment, it came in a very compact and good packaging. The trainer was very easy to set up after reading the steps and guidelines written on the box. I used wrenches to assemble this system and took assistance from my father at the time of adjusting it on the rim. Since, it was heavy so I was avoiding any difficulties.
The trainer lead me perform variety of shots from different angles without having a thought on mind that I have to catch the rebound too. My miss and shots were all falling onto the trainer very easily. Though I didn’t counted but I took hundreds of shots within twenty minutes, which is impossible to do without a trainer. Overall, this product is recommended for the ones who want to be a professional basketball player and is very serious about making your game better by improving your shooting technique with high intensity.
