This is interesting. So you wound up on octagonal instead of round and you think it looks better, feels better, is more natural? Well, octagonal trampolines are all of that, although they aren’t as popular as their round cousins. I never knew why that was, although it’s probably the price.
Anyways, it has its own advantages. Octagonals are usually more sturdy and they last much longer. They are also of higher quality than round ones. But I, unfortunately, tried only one, and for that one, I’m going to write a review here. People have told me that it is the best on the market, but I can’t speak from experience about that as I have nothing to compare it to. I can only compare it to other round and olympic trampolines and I’ll tell you my opinion below.
Here is the review. If you have any comment, you can contact me at any time!
Magic Circle Octagonal 16ft without enclosure
Okay, so I’ve only tried this one from this category and if I may say that I was blown away. This tops all of the popular round trampolines cold. As far as jumping goes, this is far superior, both in terms of capability and jumping height.
As far as capability goes, it supports up to 450 pounds, so that will make you covered for your personal use or for some backyard parties.
As for jumping height… I could do double flips on this with no problem at all. My friend who owns this weighs 250 pounds and he’s doing the same. This really is insane.
It comes with a really high-quality spring, the same quality that is in olympic trampolines. They are of course rust-resistant, as is the frame. The frame is really thick – as thick as a nickel – so no twisting, no breaking, just jumping.
Also, this is one of the easiest assemblies ever; it took us only about 35 minutes, and it is a 16ft trampoline! No extra tools needed – you just unpack it, follow the instructions and there you go!
Just bear in mind that this comes without a safety enclosure so please be extra careful when jumping on it. My friend didn’t buy it at all and he had no problems whatsoever. Kids usually tend to jump against the enclosure if you have it. There is a version with enclosure, but it costs around $500 more and I don’t know whether it is worth that much. Just be careful.
It comes in three colors: green, purple and yellow. They usually deliver a mix of the three, so if you want a particular color, you have to be specific with the seller.
I really enjoyed my time on this one. It truly is a great trampoline and all of my recommendations go out to this if you’ve settled on the octagonal type.
