    Tools that use tension bands are preferable; the rebound is stronger, and they are much quieter. Other mini trampolines may use elastic cords whose performance is similar to tension bands.

    Some mini trampolines are noisy no matter what you do. Some even get noisier due to the constant wobbling motion if they are cheaply made.

The main diff between Regular trampoline and gymnastic trampoline is :

Regular trampoline beds provide relatively little air passage. Springs often give a stiff bounce. On average, athletes cannot do more than one rotation safely.

The springs and beds used in gymnastic trampolines are of very high quality. The bed is more porous. Springs have a higher initial tension but give the bed a softer bottom. Therefore a trampoline allows the athlete to jump much higher for the same maximum force. Top athletes can safely do three rounds.
Thanks for the information.
