    Rebounder bent during workout.

    I bought a rebounder and used it twice. I followed a 10 minute workout video.

    (Can't post links yet).

    The first time, I didn't have any issues.

    The second time, 5 minutes into the workout, one of the hinges bent upward, and the rebounder wasn't flat anymore. I had to stop.

    It took me more than 20 minutes of closing and opening the rebounder, to get it straight again.

    I then resumed the workout. A few minutes later, it happened again.

    The company is sending me a new one.

    Did I do something wrong? Could it be the height of my jumps?

    I had never owned one before.

    I've had a Reboundaire rebounder since 2013 or thereabouts and I do what I call 'power jumping' on it. I can't imagine that you went higher or harder than I do, so try to get your money back and then buy a Reboundaire. It's guaranteed for life.

    If you already have a replacement coming you just need to see if it holds up or was a defect in the first one. Hopefully they covered shipping.

    I'd refrain from any somersault/twist combos.

    Thanks. Can you link to yours? So I can make sure I'm looking at the right one.

    One of the reasons I went with this one is because it was quarter folding.

    The replacement is already on its way, so I might as well try it.

    I didn't have to pay for the replacement.

    What is the mat diameter of yours? Not the frame diameter, but the exposed mat diameter.

    If I were to get another one, I'd also want a bigger one. But there's not many options I see for rebounders that are quarter folding and with a much larger mat area diameter. My mat are diameter is 28".

    So I guess your power jumps are 1-2 feet high, and it's still ok?

    Yes the replacement was 100% free.

    In an email conversation, they also said rebounding isn't supposed to have jumps of more than 6" (6 inches).

    I am new to this, so I don't know if that's true or not.

    I haven't tried any somersaults. I don't think I ever would, it's hard enough doing some of the exercises and keeping my balance.

    What is a twist on its own? Just so I have the same understanding.

    Mine is the half fold and the mat is 28 inches, like yours. https://rebound-air.com/

    So the prevailing thought is that when I get my replacement, I should not try to limit the height of my jumps, and I should try to use it like I did the previous two times I used my rebounder?

    To see if it can withstand how I wanted to use it?

    And if it can't, then it's a sign that I should get something else?

    One more question. What are some thoughts on a spring rebounder vs. bungee rebounder? Until I bought mine, I didn't know that there were different types. Mine is a spring rebounder, so does the Rebound Air that @supramax linked to.
