I found this net and post set to be very easy to set-up and take down. The posts are very heavy duty and the net is very durable.
I replaced the string with a heavier duty one which allows me to get the tension of the net very tight without worrying about breaking the string, and haven't needed to adjust it in month's.
The mesh fits into the bars perfectly. Maybe the manufacturer has corrected this issue since ppgear did his review.....
At $30.00 + shipping the DP-1 is a real bargain!

This is a great heavy-duty net set. It's the standard set up with heavy-duty posts, and the net bars slide out (as always).
The tightening is great, you can tighten it as tight as any other professional net set. If the beads come off, you can simply tie a better knot to secure it.
The one issue is that the mesh doesn't seem to fit perfectly with the bars. When assembling it, I always cut a little square (about 9mm in length) off the top of the sleeve, then it fits like a charm!
On all accounts it plays like a pro net, and costs about $20 less (or even greater difference) than the expensive nets. The comparable nets cost between $50-80 usually.
