OK, But Not The Quality I Expect From Mitre
on 13 January 2016
I have a similar experience to other reviewers really.
The item is packed well and looks sturdy enough, but the frame doesn't seem to quite fit together as it should. Not normally a problem with some items but when you see the "Unsecured Goal Can Fall Over Causing Serious Injury Or Death" you start to worry a little. Great that they warn you, but not so great when you don't feel that confident about the goal due to the fact the parts don't fit together smoothly. It does seem as if Mitre have cut corners to keep the costs down, which is a shame. I'm sure parents would happily pay a fiver or tenner extra knowing that the product is of a better quality.
On the plus side the net does fold down so won't be open to the winter weather as our previous goal did.
There are some plus points to this Mitre goal, ease of assembly, foldable, etc but also some negative ones, the quality of the fittings doesn't seem great and the goal is wobbly after construction; a real concern considering the almost hysterical "death" notice.
