Skywalker Jump N’ Dunk Trampoline Review
With a popular name like Skywalker, I expected a sturdy, stable, structurally sound frame, and the Jump N’ Dunk didn’t disappoint. Like the Skywalker Round, it is made from galvanized steel and features T-sockets which won’t weather or weaken with time.
In fact, the whole trampoline seems to hold together really well. For example, the enclosure net fits together between the jumping mat and the springs, so there’s no danger of landing on the springs and causing yourself an injury. Skywalker has designed the net with a patented Stay-Put feature, which means that there are no little gaps to get caught up in.
One bonus that improves the value of this trampoline even further is that it comes supplied with a basketball hoop which secures onto the enclosure net.
I was impressed by the quality and affordability of the Skywalker Jump N’ Dunk – and I can totally understand why it ranks so highly on Amazon – but for the low price, there are some sacrifices which can’t be ignored.
Although assembly is fairly quick and straightforward (with a little help I managed to set it up in around an hour), the instructions are poor. The fitting of the enclosure net is particularly unclear, and if you get this wrong then you’ll end up having to re-do virtually the whole thing.
In addition, the basketball hoop is a nice touch, but it is quite flimsy. Consider that with every jump you will pull down on the hoop, and you can see how it won’t last for very long. I found that the hoop broke within a few days, but be gentle and you might get a little more use out of it.
