The strength of the bungee makes a huge difference in the feel of the bounce.

I originally got really strong bungees for my Bellicon, but replaced them so the bounce was less firm when the first set wore out.

Here's a link to the Bellicon page talking about how to choose the right strength for your needs.

I don't know how other models compare.

Sure it does. I got extra strong bungees (I'm well under 200lbs) and for me, the bounce is still too soft. Maybe the ultra bungees would make a difference, but they're not cheap and I just don't want to invest any more money in it.

I have to correct myself; I have the 44" Bellicon. I have the foldable legs and am glad I got them. I mostly store it just tipped on its side, but there have been times when I move it to another room and the foldable legs make that easier.
I have the strong bungees, which I replaced after 3 years. I have had other rebounders in the past but not a Jumpsport, so I can't compare with that one. I hear good things about them, though!
If you are on facebook, AngieFitness TV has an active rebounding page with lots of discussions about different rebounders. A lot of them like the Leaps and Rebounders brand (including Angie).

Just adding to this discussion to mention that the rebounder talk on VFF lately inspired me to get the support bars for my Bellicon, and I'm glad I got them! Really like having a bit of something for support.

Also thought I'd mention that the Bellicon GO models come in pieces that you assemble. Not foldable, but I'd assume it comes in a smaller package than the complete circle models.

My first rebounder was a folding model and I feared for my physical well being every time I folded or unfolded it!

My current rebounder is the small Bellicon with folding legs. Glad I caught it during one of Belliconís sales since I donít use it much. I have a hard time clicking with rebounding workouts.
