Best Volleyball Nets - Outdoor


We've selected our best two volleyball nets to be featured here to help you figure out which one is right for you. We won't make a strict recommendation that one is better than the other, but with this information you can definitely figure out which is the better choice for you personally. While both of these Park & Sun volleyball net systems are great outdoor options, here are some of the differences.

As you can see from the table above, the Spectrum Classic uses 2" poles while the T-Flex uses 1.75". Both are certainly strong and sturdy enough made with aircraft aluminum, but the Spectrum Classic's hardware uses thicker poles as well as 3" of top and bottom net binding compared to 2" on the T-Flex. You might be sensing a theme here and we're going to continue with it. The pulldown guylines on the Spectrum Classic are 5/16" while on the T-Flex they come in at 1/4" (which is 4/16" for easier comparison). We also see the same 5/16" to 1/4" difference with the pre-measured boundary webbing with corner anchors. And lastly the T-Flex uses 10" steel stakes while the Spectrum Classic uses 12". You may not have understood exactly what all of those measurements mean, but you should be able to get an understanding of the theme here; which is that the Spectrum Classic uses bigger, heavier, and stronger hardware than the T-Flex. That is not to say that the T-Flex isn't strong though, just by comparison it's lighter!

One of the best thing about these volleyball nets is how easy they are to set up and that once set up their heights are adjustable. This makes them great for kids, friendly adult games, or serious competitions. If you want to set one up in the backyard and leave it there for the summer, that's great, but don't forget that both of these volleyball systems are totally portable. Something that our customers have told us about doing is packing these in their cars and taking them for some fun at the beach, setting them up in only minutes!

When it comes down to it the main difference between these two fantastic nets is the price and the hardware. The Spectrum Classic is more expensive, but comes with heavier-duty hardware that will help it hold up over the years (plus it comes with a 10 year warranty from Park & Sun) and also comes in multiple color options (blue, green, red, yellow, and (Sports Unlimited exclusive) red/white/blue. The T-Flex comes in at a lower price point, but still maintains the high quality we need. Both of these nets ship for free out of our warehouse (and will ship the same day you order if placed before 3pm ET on weekdays).
