Looks like it will last a good while - the Easton net I tried ripped, I exchanged it and that one ripped (with 11 year olds hitting). The Juggs product seem sturdy enough to withstand a lot of heavy swings. Setup is easy once you figure it out (read the instructions!) and it's definitely easier with two people. Taking down you can do on your own, but again you have to read the instructions until you get the hang of it. Transport is easier and it's fairly light and manageable amongst the other gear. The package I got comes with a tee (not described well enough in the cataloge, but a servicable basic hitting tee) and with 2 dozen dimpled plastic balls. The balls are great to hit off the tee with, or to use on wet days when you don't want your regular balls getting wet. Overall, I'm pleased with what I got and would recommend this setup. I coach 7-8 year olds and 13-14 year olds and this package is very useable at both levels.
