The FoldFast Green Goal has 1.5' inch framing that can stand up to some serious punishment. The 5.0 MM net is much heavier duty than the cheapies sold in the Big Box goals. High school and college guys can rip some serious shots and the 5mm is designed to hold up under fire. The non-invasive green tubing is designed so that your back yard does not look like an amusement park . Not game legal because of the green color, but a heavy duty option for backyard practice Easily assembled with lashing chord included for the net. You get what you pay for here folks. Those Amazon and Big Box goals are complete junk and you will end up buying one of these anyways after your kid destroys the cheap ones in short order.
