To adjust the "tightness" of it, you just move the middle piece of rebar in or out

Those bunkers took an absolute beating this past weekend and they held up great!

Update again for those wondering about the durability of them. They are still going strong! We have even been dinking around with poor mans speedball in some of these zones and they are still holding up great.

Ah, that stuff will hold up for a couple of years, actually. To make them last longer, it's best if you support the top edge and let the material absorb the impact energy instead of causing the paint to break. This keeps the bunker clean, and allows the material to reach that 2-3 year point before the UV light does it's due diligence and the fabric falls apart.

I think you are right on the length of durability. We have had temps in the 90's this summer and now we have over night lows in the 20's already. We played a game this past weekend, and they show no sign of slowing down. I am still amazed at how easy, cheap, manuverable and durable this stuff is.
