Blobs

Anyone had any personal experience using a BLOB? I have always wanted one ever since the YouTube videos started popping up. Just curious if anyone on here has ever used one them selves and if they though it was worth it?
Myself and a couple buddies have been talking about going in on one of these:

Just don't want to completely waste our money lol. We have a some perfect cliffs/ bluffs to jump off of onto the BLOB at my local lake.

Saw one on my lake a couple weekends ago.. Was really tempted to stop and ask the dock owner if we would play on it for a while.

Actually a lot less than I would have thought. Figured those would be an easy 5-6k.

$2000 will get a very nice one. You need to make sure that you get one that is about 20 ft long minimum for it to really launch someone.

I remember pricing them in high school and they were several thousand for a small one. I honestly did not think the new ones I found were to bad on pricing, especially with splitting the cost between a few people. Just don't know how well they hold up.

So that is what that thing is on my lake. The YMCA camp on my lake has one of those. Always wondered what it was. Never tried it.. but I can think of a couple folks that I am almost certain "safety tested" it some late night long past sunset...
