By nice idea
from lake forest, il
agree with last review. The velcro attachments do not hold up. have to continually readjust. Many times the ball causes the attachments to fall off before getting through the run.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great concept, room for improvement
from Leawood, KS
Great idea, we've found that the hook and loop attachment method does not hold up so well to the weight of the balls. A cool track requires that the attachment points be wiggled after every couple of runs or the track falls apart. Could be a more solid connection.
