Performance Trampoline Springs Are Widely Used For Competitions
Competitive activities and/or sports involving trampolines prefer competition springs instead of recreational springs because they provide a fair performance opportunity. It is possible for recreational springs to overstretch during a competition because they are not designed to withstand the force that competition springs are produced to handle. Competition springs are produced with a thicker wire to resist force. They are also designed at longer lengths to combat overstretching. The performance provided by competition springs cannot be obtained with recreational springs.
Due to the design and material used to produce competition springs, they provide the highest possible bounce. The extensive length of the spring grants the jumper deeper penetration, which results in the jumper going higher in the air. Professionals recommend DR competition springs for jumpers who are most concerned with going higher in the air. These springs provide half the tension of a recreational trampoline spring, supporting deeper penetration.
Please note that competition springs are recommended for experienced jumpers only. Standard size for these types of springs is 10.25 inch.
Before you place the order for trampoline springs, you need to make sure that you measured the length of the trampoline springs. The length of the spring includes the hook so when you are taking the measurement of the spring you need to make sure that you have included the full length including the hook. Replace over stretched or loose springs to make mat tenser in result to get the jump higher.
Trampoline springs can be separated into two main categories i.e. recreational and competition.
