I purchased the SPG-8 for my 4yr, 8yr and 10yr old grandkids. My daughter and her husband assembled it out of the box, probably w/o reading instructions, in just a very few minutes. It went up easily and was shortly in use. When using one of the targets, it does kick the ball out a few feet, making it easier to recover balls than having to go into the net and dig them out as is necessary with many other nets. It has worked well for softball pitcher, little league baseball pitcher and all three hitters. They are all happy with it and would recommend it.
