Heavier gauge steel base will stay balanced on any surface and withstand the hardest hits and pitches from the most elite athletes. The NEW one-piece base BOW™ frame is hassle free because there are fewer parts to lose. The connector (patent pending) is made of a tough glass filled synthetic polymer that combines the hinge and pole sockets for ease of assembly. Heavier, powder coated steel base BOW™ frame construction is engineered to outlast any frame on the market. Removed bottom sleeve transfers ball energy to outer bungees to reduce tension on the net and increase the lifespan. Includes an one-year manufacturer's warranty. With fewer parts, Bownet's Big Mouth X® sets up in as little as 60 seconds allowing more time for practice.
