Soccer nets come in different shapes and sizes. For example, there are portable nets available. Portable netting is perfect for those who move from soccer goals to practicing fields or other locations. Soccer goals can be portable or permanent. Permanent goals are designed to last for many years.
Soccer Goal Anchors Net – This net features one post and two anchors. The anchors are located on the opposite sides of the net. A two-foot ball with holes is put into one hole and the ball drops into the second hole and the net is closed. The reviewers did not like the fact that the anchors could not be taken apart. It also took a lot of effort to pull the anchor out.
Portable Goal Posts – These portable goals feature a permanent base and an adjustable top surface. The adjustable top surface can be hydraulically adjusted to any height. The net rises and lowers when the soccer ball is hit and adjusts to the angle of the landing. The net folds up neatly to store when not in use.
Solar Yard lights – reviewers liked the fact that this net was solar-powered. One reviewer stated that the light was not bright enough to see the ball when the net was down. Another reviewer stated that the light was so bright that it was distracting. One disadvantage to using a solar yard light is that the batteries must be replaced every year. This is not a major concern for most people, especially if the goal posts have an effective system to recycle the batteries.
Reel Locks – Many soccer nets have standard size reels. A few reviewers stated that standard reels are too small and loose in comparison to the locking reels. The locking reels are used for goalposts and are recommended by most reviewers. They are the size recommended for indoor nets. Most reviewers agreed that both the locking and non-locking reels work well.
Overall, the reviewers did not like the net. The net was good at trapping the ball, but did not have the overall strength of other higher end nets. However, if one wants to shoot for goalies, then this may be the perfect net. It does offer good overall value and should prove a worthwhile investment.
Portable Rebounders – Most portable rebounders are either the traditional net sizes or smaller sizes. The smaller sizes are easy to store away when not in use. Some reviewers stated that this net is very durable, but portable rebounders can be more susceptible to damage than larger net sizes. It takes time to assemble the portable rebounder, however, it can be done. The rebounders are very portable and can be moved from one side of the field to the other very easily. They can also be taken apart for transport, but this can be a hassle, too.
Goal Posts – Some reviewers stated that the smaller round portable goal posts are not as stable as the standard rectangular goal post. However, they were not as heavy as one reviewer stated they would be. The net is portable, but the weight may be a problem if the user is not careful. Some prefer the light enough net that one can handle a ball on the ground while traveling and other people like the stability of the heavier rounded net.
Pop-up Soccer Goals – These type of goals are easy to install and transport from the backyard. Some reviewers stated that these portable goals are easier to setup than regular net installations. This is because the goal pop-up can be collapsed into a small package. The goal pop-up soccer goals can also be moved indoors during inclement weather.
Overall, the reviewers were very pleased with the performance of the soccer goals. Most had a positive overall opinion about the netting. A few were a bit disappointed with one or two of the nets. The size, weight and portability of the nets were all mentioned by some reviewers. Some were not pleased with the bounce of the nets and did not like the net hanging over their heads.
