Really? Different make and £99.99 for the 8ft and 199.99 for the 10ft means that its £20 more expensive for the 8ft and £100 more expensive for the 10ft, are Plum trampolines worth the extra?

plum are the best make and lasts for ages provided you look after them etc cover in winter but with plum the springs are hidden unlike most trampolines.
please note if any trampoline says the netting (enclosure) is on the inside then please take about 2 foot off for example 8 ft would be actually 6ft and 10 ft would be 8ft etc etc

ladders don't come with hardly any trampolines but are priced at around 20 - 30 pound but some b&m stores if in stock are selling them off at a tenner if a store near you might have them in stock.

Friends bought this one and assembled it yesterday, springs were underneath, netting was on the outside..obviously any trampoline size has to accomodate the springs and trampoline itself so any trampoline is not going to be true to size against its diameter.

Wrong, net is on the inside. I'm looking at it right now!

i'd rather the saftey net on the inside. Had one previously on the outside and over time becomes annoying and somewhat dangerous. Reserved and heat added

Bought the 8ft 3 weeks ago at this price from Argos, decent price for what it is, HOT for sharing

Plum are not the best make at all, they are a decentish budget make but are not the best overall.
Do you really think you can get "the best make" trampoline for £100ish...?

Jesus wept, who thought a trampoline would cause such kerfuffel. A deal on a crap would be "mountain" bike against a decent starter mountain bike I could understand.

Sportspower are not an OEM chinese manufacturer with flowered up Argos own brand names stamped on them. They have websites, one for europe, a company profile here they manufacture trampolines through major retailers throughout the world, including the United States, the U.K., Mexico, South America, Australia and New Zealand.

They can offer spares, and yes the net does go on the outside of the trampoline not the inside, it is just not stretched out to the side support limbs like the "Plum" manufactured one. If it was then the covered springs would be more prone to being bounced upon rather than the fabric actual trampoline area you would want either yourself or your children to be bouncing upon.

Here is another picture here, if you want any trampoline to last, get a cover, make sure you teflon spray or some other waterproofing on your springs which are covered from the topside by the skirt.

I am surprised nobody has gone on biatching (usually those that never post a deal because nowt is good enough "criteria" for them to deem worth posting, yet somehow they strangely like registering and complaining on this forum) that this has been on offer at a previously slightly higher price, and that Argos "probably" never sell it at RRP...then I suggest you also look at other retailers selling this for the same price, and rival manufacturers selling theirs cheaper before biatching.

Please, people adopt some common sense when it comes to deals, I am sure a lot of people appreciate criticism where necessary from bad deals such as cheap safety frowned upon supermarket "mountain" bikes, but at least do some research into a manufacturer before biatching.

It really does put people off wanting to post deals on here, including myself who is a seasoned member here....or wait, is that why you registered to start with?

i registered to post some deals but because my deals were super valu or dunnes people voted cold because some people could not get them as they were in northern ireland but still i don't vote cold because i cannot get something because it is in morrisons or in ikea or anything like that so don't get all high and mighty with me! please i have posted loads of advice on other listings in the comments box and i did not vote cold on this item either as i got it today for 62.99 in argos buy the way as a spare for when my nieces and nephews come over for a party i am holding for my 3 kids and i have 23 nieces and nephews.
this site is for people to express opinion as to which the item is a bargain or not and vote either way and not for people who are pricks and vote cold with no reason as to why and bully peoples deals into which they took time to post and share and i welcome anyones opinion with everyone and check who voted hot and you will see i did so less of your crap.

My comment was a blanket statement, not directed at you personally, partially apparent to you and your comments here maybe, but please don't get narcissistic it was for "you" and only "you".

Bought the 8ft one at the weekend, must say I'm pretty impressed (and so is my 3 year old!) with it for £80. Would have got the 10ft but my garden isn't that wide.
Instructions are pretty hard to follow mind, but it still only took me a couple of hours to do it. Did it all on my own too except for a bit of help threading the safety net cable through the top of the netting.
I'm not supposed to bounce on it as max rating is 75kg, I'm about 85kg but it's pretty stable. Will double as a great sun lounger too!

Well there we have it then, I bow to your superior knowledge and take on board your 7 year extreme scientific trampoline test study.

Well done son, well done!

Well there we have it folks, treat any galvanized steel trampoline with care as long as they are "Plum" branded, and keep them in a shed as long as they are "Plum" branded and they will last you as long as a Vauxhall Astra.

Now I know where we went wrong, we bought a Vauxhall Vectra Dti instead and looked after it well, it let us down after 50,000 miles and we had to get shot of it fast and traded it in for a new car, and all this has lots to do with trampoline threads quite clearly.

Wow. Good deal op... but some crazy comments.

voted hot for the price!

but agree with plum make being superior brand then this one (personal opinion cicobuff, don't fight over it (_;) )

Main difference between this and the Plum is the Steel enclosure ring around the top of this adding rigidity.

Other difference is the netting is faced to the outside supports of the Plum, whereas the Sportspower has the netting on the outside of the trampoline area.

People will have differences of opinion over safety aspects of either.

Plum 8ft is available for £99 currently on offer at Tesco.





8ft is now £129.99

Cheers, good whilst it lasted, 10ft back to full price now.

Next best deal on an 8ft now is the Plum 8ft at Tesco for £99

10ft with home delivery (argos.co.uk/sta…htm) is still half price i.e. £99.99. But the reviews are totally different as compare to 8ft one. I am sure both of them have same quality but its just a coincidence!

I bought this last week, I'm very pleased. Haven't had a trampoline before but it's sturdy and seems to work well. All the complaints on argos' website would appear to be from people who can't follow the instructions. Putting the springs in requires you to follow them exactly, and it's very tempting to try and shortcut it (as you need to walk to the opposite side with every spring) but the unequal forces on the frame leads to the 'pringle' affect the negative reviews complains about. If you buy it my advice is count the holes carefully, I got one spring one place out and it was a PITA to remove just minutes later. An easy help is to write the hole numbers on the frame with a marker pen, just every ten or so. It gets covered with the pads in the next step anyway.

I got one of these today & was very impressed with the quality. The instructions did need a good bit of concentration to follow but unless you're an idiot & don't apply the springs in the order suggested you really can't go wrong. It took me & my 8 year old about 3 hours to assemble. Overall excellent value for money.

Have these got a PVC type base that cover the springs on the mat or are they the cross stitch type stuff ??

Here is my 2 penneth worth about the 'plum' stuff people are whining about.....
I just bought the 8 ft PLUM one from tesco and personally i think its ****. so much so that its going back tomorrow. The padding is not the normal pvc type that you get with usual plum products, it is the cheaper so called weather resistant stuff that falls apart after a year if left out, just like my B&Q one did couple of years ago. My 3yr old bounces on it and if he hits the padding on the springs his foot goes through it having just grazed his ankle on the spring!!!.

Its seems to me like Tesco have ordered say 10,000 units for arguments sake from plum to be built at lower spec which in my mind after seeing other plum products what friends have will in some way put people off buying plum ones again. The pvc cover for teh springs would costs an extra £49 from plum!!.

Oh yeah i didnt buy this because it was a plum make, i bought it because i got it for £10 less than the argos one after some kind person took the time to post a deal on here.
