Get one from Dicks, there's a "Big Net" 8'x8' not normally for sale. Callaway makes an 8x8 net as well for about $159 also at Dicks. There was also a thread (on this forum) with someone getting one from a company based in Washington state that looked pretty good. I plan to get that as well as this one gets destroyed. The net part on mine works very well, the frame is made of that pop up tent material. It seems to have held up for about 3 weeks so far (I hit about 500 balls per day, so it might be unusually high wear). I broke two clips that hold the straps together, but just tied them together. You might want to setup multiple nets in your garage like they do at Dicks. That would be a cool setup.
My kids use our net setup during the day sometimes, and I use it to hit at nights after my kids go to bed. Sometimes, an early morning session helps get the body going as well.
I would invest a bit more on a full size mat that you can stand on. It is more comfortable.
