We got a jump flex for our twins just before they turned 3, absolutely fantastic. It even has attachments to add a slide next to the ladder fir a bit more fun.

Heavy as all hell so now wind is going to pick it up, large nets that go high up and keep the kids away from the springs which have pads over them.
Have had no problems at all with both the kids on it at the same time (they are now 3 years old), no broken bones, knocks or injuries of any sort.
If you are worried about injuries, just make sure you keep an eye on the kids at all times.
But as for us, probably the best thing we have bought the kids entertainment wise, it gets far more use than their trikes, bikes and scooters.

We had the old school no pads, n nets type when we grew up, and three boys playing on that, double bouncing each other higher for a decade or more and not one injury of any sort either.

Fabian:
Kiwifruta: We bought a jumpflex in October, the kids are 2, 5 & 7. Kids are on it 2-3 times a day. We also have the sprinkler attachment, great buy. If you are near Hamilton you can go to jumpflex and try their trampolines on their free trampoline park.

We are happy with the tramp.


what size did you get? we got the sprinter things as well, good to hear that's it's useful.
.

The largest one which is 4.2m (14') in diameter. I was going to get a smaller one but the wife convinced me to get the larger one. So glad she did. Sure beats video games. The kids' behaviour is much better.

The other pro to Springfree is the resale value
A 5 year old Springfree trampoline sells on TM for 90% of the new price (and still looks like new)

I have just joined here to dig up some info on routers fiber VoIP etc all fun and games, anyway just came across this while looking around.
In my opinion the Jumpflex ones are probably the best value-quality/safety proposition. One thing to take into account is that Jumpflex are the only ones with a galvanized frame.
In terms of injury I think some of the statistics have been skewed a bit, injury's due to multiple jumpers are just as high (possibly higher) than falling off or hitting the frame. The worst combination is an adult and a child, double bounce and broken leg, 2 kids the same size isn't too bad.

We bit the bullet just prior to Xmas and bought a 12' Jumpflex tramp.

 

 

 

They were fantastic to deal with.

 

We got the sprinkler attachment and the basketball hoop as well. Took me around 3 hrs to erect by myself and I am pretty pleased with the way it looks and performs.

 

The sprinkler was faulty - it came apart under the pressure of the water - they replaced it no questions asked and sent it to us overnight.

 

The kids have been on it every day - even in the rain. They have perfected flips and twists and all sorts of amazing tricks - to be honest it was the best buy of the year.

Hi. 

 

I thought I'd give this thread an update on a warranty situation we found ourselves with. 

 

We purchased a NZTramps trampoline May 2012 for our kids. It doesn't get a huge amount of use, but we replaced the nets when they started to get tatty etc. 

 

Whilst trying to fit this, we noticed SIGNIFICANT rusting and corrision of the rings attached to the Mat to the point they were broken or about to break. 

 

We called JumpFlex who appear to have taken over since NZTramps have ceased to trade. They have said they have no more spare parts as the spares from the original suppliers are not of the right quality and fit. They offered us a replacement which looks just like the original one we purchased, for $350 incl delivery to help "make it right" which I consider pretty reasonable value given they have no obligation to do anything as the original trading company is no longer. 

 

I was impressed with their attitude and shows they are in it for the long haul. We aren't sure if we will actually replace it given the relatively low use my kids get from it, but are contemplating it, and not doing it, won't be from fear that the trampolines won't last or they won't support them.

Hmm, our tramp from no1fitness is also rusted until broken ... I wonder if they will replace ... [other than that, highly recommended! nearly as safe as the springfree one - on that note, since we're not in chch there isn't much peer pressure to have the most expensive things money can buy]

I would think NO1 will replace, I'd expect CGA to cover you.

I recently bought a whole lot of these: http://www.trademe.co.nz/toys-models/outdoor-toys-trampolines/trampolines/trampoline-accessories/auction-1238353177.htm to fit to a similar vintage NZTramps trampoline with very rusty parts, also some springs from the same supplier.  It seems to be a good product

 

Jumpflex sold me a new net for $50 which I thought was very reasonable
