    Either the plastic poles crack or the plastic stakes break. I'm only a recreational player, however can anyone recommend a set that has steel/metal poles and stakes that won't break with a strong wind and a recommended place to purchase the set? Thanks.

    This one has aluminum poles and steel stakes. Availible from Badminton Alley for about $160.. shipping might be extra. They also have a cheaper one for about $100. Best of luck.

    Thanks a lot

    I went with the cheaper one as I don't need the full width court and my lawn mowing guy can just move it out of the way. Great link! Thanks. Rick

    I like the set. It's made of what would seem to be aluminum, with a heavy duty bungee cord holding all of the pieces together. The net seems to be of good quality as well. I would like it to have been a few feet wider, but for two people, or perhaps four in tight quarters, it's fine. It's billed as a practice net, however my wife and I find it works fine for real play for the two of us. Easy to move around as well.
