I looked at those last summer when I totally refitted my 1981 H16 and the price seemed attractive to me too. I also read some discouraging reports on them. (That doesn't mean they're bad, it's just what I read at the time). I obssessed and researched the crap out of different choices of tramps. I opted for the trampolines sold by Slo Sail And Canvas. They have multiple rows of stiching. I'm 6'2" and 250#, I need a STRONG set up! I bought and installed a beautifully constructed black mesh trampoline and am VERY happy with it. You might want to check them out. They are at slosails.com. I paid like $215 on the tramp and $15 on the linecatcher. More than a Hobie Mill but less than a factory one. They are VERY good quality! If you get one from them tell them Bruce from Pasadena MD sent you.
Also when you get it installed spill some beer on it...tramps like it when you spill beer on them
