Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 143 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use! Great quality. My son is 13 and has no problem adjusting the height and moving it around the driveway. January 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase This was the perfect value and quality. It did take awhile to assemble but once it was up my family and I immediately began playing ball. We have a blast with it every weekend. My pre-teens love it and my husband and I get a kick out of doing out there and still trying to hoop-it-up. Great investment for the entire family!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, durable product This was purchased for teen grandsons. They are thrilled with gift. We all helped put it together as sometimes someone has to hold things or hand a tool or part. Was not difficult. It was easy to order online and have family pick it up at their local store. However when we went back to the store after Christmas, the price was lower and management refunded the difference to my credit card. How great was that? This is a top notch product, even I can adjust the height and I am a 70+ grandma. January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good basketball setup. Assembly was strait forward with adequate instruction. Appears to be a quality combination for the driveway. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Product Nice product set up by Dick's Sporting Goods per our request. I used it with our ten year olds. Has the feel of a real high school gymnasium backboard and hoop. Very satisfied with the product and the service. January 11, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband. I ordered it online due to it being half off. First, the box was in really bad shape when I received it. When he opened the box, the backboard was cracked. You could tell it had been returned because it looked as if someone had just thrown the parts in the box. We took it back to exchange it. They were out of stock. We ended up getting our money back. Do I recommend this product? Yes, however, I would not recommend ordering this product online. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hoop Well put together. Sturdy. Lots of fun. Assembly was easy and directions were clear. I had it up in less than 30 minutes January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Follow the instructions UPDATE Well, we have stood up the goal in the yard and started shooting hoops. this thing is very fun, sturdy, and well built. all the neighborhood kids are having a blast playing on this thing and I too enjoy the exercise. I bought a product called H2old that turns the water in the base to a freeze proof gel and makes it easier to move the goal around since the water isn't sloshing around in the base. The acrylic backboard is a bit loud but I gain satisfaction hearing the ball hit the backboard--that means my kids are putting it to use. I also recommend getting a ball return that hangs under the rim, it make play a little more enjoyable. get this thing and have a ball! (pun intended)! December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Product This product is a good mid-level basketball hoop system. Some of the other brands don't have an adjustment system as this system. The 52" backboard is the smallest I would consider since a regulation backboard is 72", smaller than 52" and a kid with low skills will have a harder time using the glass. I got this for my 9 year old son and 10 year old daughter for Christmas. Setup was pretty straight forward. Make sure you have two of each wrench, and I would suggest having a socket wrench and a box wrench. For a couple of connections you will want to use a drill with you socket and extension (use 1/2" to fit into the chuck). All in all, it took 3 hours to setup with the help of the kids and might have only taken 2 & 1/2 if I didn't have to keep them focused so much. If you have two adults, there is no reason this shouldn't take an hour and a half to complete setup. The construction quality is very good. The only thing that would be better is having shatter-proof glass, but that is over $1,000, so this is a good option. December 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just follow instructions.... I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my 11 year old son. I wanted to spend time with him hooping it up in the driveway. I read a lot of mixed reviews on this product and I don?t understand why there are negative reviews and comments. First of all this hoop is made in the U.S.A. that?s important and that?s always a plus. A lot of people said the instructions are vague and that is far from the truth! All hardware is bagged into groups with labels that correspond to the appropriate steps during assembly (BGR, BGS, etc.). There is also a comprehensive parts and hardware inventory list so you can account for all parts in the package. There is a tools required list on every page and it tells you what tools and hardware that you need for each step during assembly. I suggest that you go to the manufacturer?s website and search for the manual for this product so you can decide whether you want to build it yourself or pay for assembly. I saw bad reviews for it taking 4-6 hours to build this?it took me 1 hour and 50 minutes and I did it solo, so it isn?t that bad; but you need to be strong if you go it alone! Another bad comment was ?backboard was scratched??there is a plastic film over the backboard to protect it during assembly, just peel that off AFTER you finish assembly. The parts were all there and packaged very well, they were all lying inside the bottom of the base. Make sure that you take your time and carefully identify all the parts and how they clock or orient during the assembly. If you read the instructions carefully both before and during assembly, then you will be just fine. This thin is very heavy, very well made, and very sturdy. The backboard is a thin acrylic and yes it does seem flimsy, but it should hold up just fine for a family who wants to shoot hoops from time to time. NCAA and Pro ball players have tempered glass in their backboards so yeah, it rebounds better; but who needs that in their driveway anyways? The absolute worst part of the assembly process was putting the springs and retainer plate together under the hoop. Just slip some needle nose pliers between two of the coils and squeeze the handles to help compress the spring enough to start the nuts. 20 minutes of my time was spent doing this step and remember it still took me under two hours to finish, so think that over. Once you attach the backboard and hoop to the pole, FILL THE BASE BEFORE STANDING THE GOAL UPRIGHT!! It will fall over if you do not fill it before standing it up because the backboard and hoop are REALLY HEAVY! This is clearly stated in the instructions so throughout assembly FOLLW THE INSTRUCTIONS STEP BY STEP! Once we get the goal out in the driveway, I?ll update my review on how well this product plays. Take your time, have a friend lend a hand, and carefully follow the instructions and assembly will be a breeze! November 30, 2015
