Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely Portable I bought this a week ago for my grandchildren and well, I'll admit it, I like to shoot hoops too. I have a large poured parking area and still don't know where I want this thing. Most hoops I looked at don't have wheels so I don't see how they can call themselves portable. This one with wheels can easily be moved about or even stored in my RV parking area. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to assemble but I will add I am very meticulous. I followed the directions which were easy to understand. I have filled the wheels with water but have not yet filled the base until I get it where I want it and it is stable enough for light use as is which surprises me. It is very sturdy and everything is a tight fit. I am quite happy with my purchase. I waited on a good sale to buy this and would have never paid retail for it but it is a good value at the sale price of $329. I have looked at many over the last couple of years. Purchasing online at Dick's couldn't have been easier and it was in stock at my local store so I was able to pick it up the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation Purchased this for my kids for Christmas. Just finished assembling it. Easy to follow directions. I would recommend watching the video on YouTube. Definitely a two person job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50 gotek Excellent hoop took about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to put together by myself only help that was needed was with the backboard. Bought on sale for 299 dont think i would have bought for 499. Was well worth paying the 299 solid hoop and easy to put together. Everything in the box is all labeled. Be sure to not take plastic or cardboard off parts until ready to use because they have numbers on them. I also like that the base connects to a metal frame under the plastic holder for the water. Rather then the lifetime brands that are just connected to the plastic of the base that holds the water. Also worth paying 299 for the fact it only took about an hour and a half to put together and directions were very easy to follow. Also like that the backboard has metal supports behind it. Also very easy to change heights. Did also watch a install video before putting together. Would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design Having owned a number of portables over the years produced by different vendors, I was extremely impressed with the design of this product. The base and assembly materials are solid and well designed, although I would have preferred a thicker glass for the backboard especially with anticipated use in colder weather (which led to the demise of the most recently owned portable). Assembly definitely took longer than advertised, however, the instructions were unbelievably thorough and precise. It is a great product for the cost and overall, I am very pleased with the product so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and sturdy Basketball hoop The online purchase was painless and the pickup at the store was very easy. It did take a little while to put the unit together, but all the parts were marked and the instructions were easy to follow. On another note, I was disappointed when I received an email about a flash sale for the 54" hoop only 3 days after I purchased the 50" hoop. The 54" hoop was $50 less that the 50" I had just purchased and assembled. Since it was not the same product, I couldn't match the price and I didn't feel like taking this 50" back and buying the larger one (and putting that together as well) to save $50. Would have been nice if Dicks would offered some sort of extra discount on the 50". This is still a very nice hoop and the larger wheels make it easier to move around. I don't think my son will be able to move it himself, but two people can move it and time will tell if it can stand up to the high winds we get in my area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up / thoughts on moving / sand vs water I had a permanent hoop growing up and this is the first portable basketball hoop I've purchased.Why I chose this one: I decided on portable most notably on price, features, and the ability to re-position it occasionally if it turned out the original placement was not ideal after some use. I chose this over the other hoops because it seemed to balance form and function, with a raise-lower system that is easy and does not appear to be prone to long term failure. This also appeared easier to move than traditional portable hoops.Setup: This took about 2.5 hours going at a reasonable pace. Be sure you have all the tools because you will need them. Lay out a carpet or cardboard in your garage so the metal pieces don't get scratched. Don't peel the plastic from the pieces until you use them, they have the part ID on the plastic. Some people will need an assistant towards the end of the process to stand the hoop back up (I did not, but I'm a 6'2" man in reasonably good shape). Overall this was pretty painless setup.The base, sand vs. water: Why I chose sand instead of water. [1] I wanted it to be heavier to reduce the chance of tipping (dry sand weighs about 80-100 pounds per cubic foot while water weighs 62 pounds per cubic foot). [2] I didn't want to have to worry about it freezing or cracking in the winter. I live in NY. Cost: Sand is really cheap at about $3.00 per 50 pound bag. I used about 8-9 total bags which included some spillage and filling the wheels.The downside: Getting the sand into the base is a real pain, and getting it out will be impossible. It was a little damp coming out of the bag and as a result piled up at the fill hole vs distributing in the base like water would. I used paver sand as opposed to play sand because it is less sticky and easier to work with. I scooped from the bag and then used a funnel and a metal stick (old curtain rod) to push the sand down into the base. For the first few bags I actually tipped the hoop all the way forward (while I still could) to get the sand distributed into the front of the base. In hindsight, I might have laid out all the sand on a plastic sheet to dry it in the garage first, but then that's work too. Now that it's in I'm glad I did it.Moving it around: It is really heavy, especially with sand so I would recommend getting it into position before filling it if you can. If not though, I can still move it myself though it is a struggle. This works better with 2 people of course, and you will need at least one of them to be quite agile and strong. That said, I find it easier to move than the traditional style by comparison with my neighbors' hoops.Conclusion: All in all I'm happy with the hoop. It looks great, feels very stable (I lower it to the lowest setting when no in use to reduce the chance of tipping over in wind), and it appears to be designed to last. Recommend if you're looking to purchase a higher end portable hoop. One note, this will not fit in and out of a standard garage. Be aware of the height of your garage door opening if you plan to do this, as the way this hoop is designed it stays fairly upright when you move it with its wheel barrel base design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied Had the hoop for less than 2 months and 2 of the metal rings that hold the net in place broke off! Totally unexceptional
