I certainly will, and I will even give you a sneak peak

I really wanted to give the backstop a good review, but it was not as good as I hoped it would be. I managed to put about 5 pucks through the meshing. The stuff that goes across the top is awesome, it held up to all my shots over and over (even returned them to me more than half the time!)

The side netting is strung WAY to tight and I think all the tension causes it to tear if you hit it with a good shot. I hammered some slapshots at it and about 5 went through and caused holes.

The frame and construction is really good though, it's just the netting on to two side stops that sucks (only if you have a hard shot though) One of our followers on facebook got it and he said he loves it.

Luckily there is a solution, I had old netting in my garage and I just laced it up and left some slack, so I am still getting full use out of it works well now with the minor adjustment

Anyways that's a summary, I will do a video, add pictures and post to my site in the next few weeks.
