Jumpsport Rebounder 350 vs 370

Sorry to start another thread but now I am trying to decide between these 2 models of rebounders. I can get the 350 from Amazon at great price with 20% off. I wish Amazon carry the 370 model, but they don't and the price from the manufacturer website is $140 more for the 370 model. So the 350 model would cost $239 and the 370 model would be $379. That's a substantial difference. I just wonder if it worth the extra price the get a little more jumping area? I know you also get stronger rebounder, but do I really need that. I also am not sure about the petals on the 370 model- do they work ok if you use sneakers.
For those who have the 350 model, do you find the rebounding area sufficient and if you lend on the skirt, is it uncomfortable?
Thanks so much for answering

If it were me, I would get the 350 at that fabulous price.
The petals have a slight advantage if you workout barefooted.
With shoes, they are just about equal.

who was able to try both mats because my first two petal mats were defective and ripped almost instantly

One week ago, I received my JumpSporst 350. I ordered from Costco.com.
http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...atchallpartial

With Costco the bar (normally $79.00) and the 4 in one dvd are included. I never used the bar with my old Urban Rebounder but I did see that some of the JumpSport workouts use the bar in the strength workouts so the free bar and dvd with Costco was worth it (Costco.com has free shipping too).

I have used the 350 for about a week now and love it. It is well made and super, super quiet! I have sufficient rebounding space. I usually rebound barefoot and have not had any uncomfortable moments when my foot landed on the skirt area. I think you will love the 350. I was told by Jumpsport customer service that the 370 makes more noise than the 350 because of the skirt design.

My first Jumpsport 350 was the Costco package. I loved the rebounder so much that when the Amazon 20% off promotion came up, I purchased a second 350 for another home; replacing a crappy noisy UR. I also have no problem with the jumping space of the 350. Gotta love this bungee rebounder; it's so smooth and quiet. Thank you, Barb S for promoting the bungee Jumpsport; they should be paying you commissions.

I agree, Barb should be getting the commission
I am going back and forth on this one. My ceiling is only 7 feet in the basement. I am 5' 4" and the jumpsport is 1 foot high, so with sneakers on I have only 5 inches or so to the ceiling (too close for comfort). The Cellersizer is 10.5" high, which gives me 1.5" more (I know is it not much). I really set my mind on Jumpsport.
Oh, I wish I could test/ buy this locally. I don't have Costco membership, so that's out.

No worries you will sink down below the frame even when standing still. The mat on a spring is much stiffer so less sinking. I had no trouble using it in my basement but son did with his head coming close to the ceiling so we moved it to the living room.

who can touch my ceiling in the basement without climbing on anything and measured it at 75 inches

Oh oh...I don't understand why I am being pulled to this . It is nearly impossible to back away from.

This is supposed to be non-impact or jarring but you still get a workout from it, which I don't understand how, because its bouncing up and down. The idea of it sounds like so much fun, to just relax and bounce.

I was reading the other threads about rebounders and bungee seems the way to go. Is this considered better then the UrbanRebounder which is fairly inexpensive compared to this one.

They have a 350 and a 250. The 350 is $299 and the 250 is $239, now I am stuck.

I have Amazon Prime, would it be better to get it from Cosco, and do you need that handle to hold on to or is that just wasted money?

I never got the stability bar but hardly used the one that came with the UR either. Folks who got the Jumpsport bar said it is tough to switch back and forth because two legs have to be removed. The Jumpsport people claim the bar is really for kids and the elderly and should be removed if not needed.

The UR killed my feet cuz I prefer to bounce barefooted. The UR feels like concrete compared to the Jumpsport. Although the Jumpsport is gentler and more fun, it has a sneaky extra intensity making the core work harder for stability.

(gee I should get a commission!)

who was lucky enough to get the Jumpsport when it was 50% off and got 3 replacement mats till they finally got the petal mat right but liked the skirt mat just as much

Yes you should, I am now stuck between the 350 and 370 because I like the extra room and bungee rating. This is a great Christmas gift, I keep thinking this would be fun just to jump on and warm up with before lifting weights, etc.

This forum is becoming ridiculously expensive to me.

Oh just perfect...my local Craigslist has a Jumpsport 350 for $200 and says its mint. Although the skirt looks like someone was jumping on it with dusty feet, maybe it is just a bad picture. That is $179 less then the 370, but it is used.

Would you all buy a used one?
