I was a little disappointed to have had to replace the top cross bar only after a few months. I purchased my net in September and in January the top bar was bad. Both end caps had come off and the pole itself had split.
The replacement poles are working as designed
I needed to replace the side and top braces, the process was easy, and cost effective. Spornia is a great company to business with.
Shipping was fast and the poles are fine. The only problem is that I called and talked to someone because I wasn't sure if the pole for the roof came with the side poles and wanted to know if I needed to order both. The representative I talked to told me the top pole would be included. It wasn't. If I had known that I would have purchased it separately.
