Rated 5 out of 5 by Scoop on the hoop.... Ordered/purchased this online to be picked up at our local Dick's. All went smoothly... and even got it for $150 off the regular $499. Yay! It took my daughter and I about 4 hours to put it together. (I'm a grandma, 64 --shh!) Best thing to do for relatively easy assembly: PICK A NICE SUNNY DAY AND MOVE EVERYTHING OUTSIDE.((HAVE WATER OR SNACKS CLOSE BY! NO BEER!! YOU NEED A CLEAR HEAD AND FUNCTIONING BRAIN FOR THIS PROJECT!!) READ THROUGH ALL INSTRUCTIONS A COUPLE OF TIMES. GET THE PROCESS IN YOUR HEAD. . THEN, LAY OUT ALL PACKAGING IN THE ORDER YOU WILL NEED. ASSEMBLE ALL THE CORRECT TOOLS IN A CENTRAL LOCATION. START WITH STEP ONE AND YOU'RE OFF AND RUNNING!!! Everything went together as per assembly instructions. You will definitely need to gently hammer some of the long bolts into place, but they go in easily with a few taps. You must have at least 2 adults --- maybe an extra one or even a pre-teen available to hold/stabilize the hoop/pole as you near completion. The most difficult part of the whole project was raising the completed hoop and base UP & into place after base was filled with water. Once it's up and settled in place, you can break out the beer!! My 10-yr old grandson absolutely LOVES the hoop!! He can easily adjust the height from 7.5 ft up to 10 ft!!! (If you prefer not to tackle the assembly yourself, Dick's will provide someone to do it for you --- Here in WNC, the cost is $143.00 for the service.) March 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Could be better at this priice The goal is fine and is sturdy. I had to request a new lower tube part because there was not a slot cut in it to assemble correctly. No big deal. The problem is that this goal is pretty expensive and I think should have been $100 less for the quality of the backboard. It is a thin plexiglass and is a little wavy. It came preassembled so nothing that I did. The goal looks nice in the yard but when you shoot the ball against the backboard, I think people five streets over can here it. The back board could be beefed up a little and then it would justify paying $400 for the goal. Wait until the next higher up model goes on sale and you will be happier. July 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the money and easy to put together This is well worth the money. My kids are totally happy with it. And as for Dad it was easy to put together. Took less then a hour and the kiddos was playing on it. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hoop system! Purchased this for my 9 yr old son and honestly did not expect too much. I was delightfully surprised at the end result. It is sturdy, fairly mobile, and a great value. I was a little hesitant on purchasing this item based on some of the complaints from other customers. I can tell you that I am pretty handy, and assembled this myself in just under two hours. You do need fairly good tools, and more importantly you must READ THE DIRECTIONS. I took a few minutes the evening before assembly to review the directions, and identify the parts, and assembly was fairly simple. This is a great system for kids, teens, and parents who like a friendly game. Good rim response and backboard response for those types of activities. If you are an exceptional athlete that wants to have dunk contests, or do chin ups from the rim, you may want an in ground system that costs 5 times as much. For everyone else this is a great product. I have dunked on it at 8 ft and had no problems at all. ps. Use water, a cup of bleach, and some antifreeze to fill the base. It is much easier to drain (if needed) and much easier to deal with than sand. I would only use sand if I had water leaking out for any reason. April 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Assembly easier than expected I read many reviews of portable basketball goals, all of them discussed the difficulty in assembly and gave long time estimates, including this one. With my wife's and granddaughter's assistance we went from start to finish in just under three hours. I have considerable mechanical experience and do not know if this made any significant difference in the time. We only made one mistake, using a 7 inch when we needed a 6 and had to redo the bolts, but this was mere minutes to fix. The only thing I did not care for was the alpha coding of the fasteners. I am old enough that I am used to standard sizes 7/16 X 7 for example not AXB. This took up some of the time having to decode the hardware. The assembly itself is straight forward. Read the instruction completely first. Follow the steps and open the hardware bags as needed and the construction runs smoothly. All in all much less time assembling than anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by After reading many reviews, I got this one. I bought it at my local store (Pottstown, Pa), The help from both associates was great. I took it home and assembled it in about 3 hours with help from my wife (she reads directions, I follow). All the parts were there and clearly marked. It is very solid and looks great too. Absolutely no complaints. July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT!!!! We've had this basketball hoop for almost 7 years and never had a problem. My entire family uses it and loves it from my 4 year old daughter to my 37 year old husband. We are moving and are about to sell it and I am sad to see it go. June 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hoop! Pros: Adjustable rim, Strong backboard, Good for dunking. Cons: Rim breaks easily and gets loose if not properly fitted. Suggestions: Put about 1/8 gallon of anti-freeze inside along with water so it wont freeze in the winter. (I live in cold climate) Also, was very difficult to put together, put in the end it makes for 100s of hours of fun! November 27, 2014
