Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Hoop!!! The hoop was very easy to put together, a socket set will help quite a bit!!!! April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Worth the money Bought for 7 year old grandson. Friend and I put together in about 2 1/2 hours. Saw horses are helpful. Great product for money. Looks good and can't wait to see grandson use it. April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby I'm pleased with this purchase I read a number of reviews for hoops before I purchased. One item of concern I ran into a lot was how poorly the instructions were and that the backboard was all scratched up. I decided to purchase this unit and I found assembly to be reasonably easy and didn't have any problems assembling it. The hardware was put in separate wrapping for each section it was intended for. Also, I think the issue with the scratched backboard is that there is a very thin plastic film on it that needs to be removed. My son absolutely loves it! No leaks on the base and everything appears to work as it should. Since it's not a solid, in-ground unit, or $1,000, it's not as firm/solid when using it. But it works great for what I paid for it. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Ordering was simple also. April 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Seems like solid equipment When my son and I were finished constructing the portable basketball hoop we were glad to see that our efforts produced a solid structure! The hoop did not seem like it would fall over, the backboard seemed level and the hydraulic system worked well! Getting to the end product was definitely a task. Most of the instructions were good, but some required the builders (us) to make some logical deductions rather than just relying on what was printed in black and white. The hardest step was early in the process, where we had to connect the pole to the base. Getting the axle to go through the wheels, the base and the pole took an act of God to accomplish. We got it to work, but man, did it cause some sweat and moments of having to walk away to access the task at hand! Also, causing a challenge was drilling screws into the metal pole to secure it before the task of hooking it into the base was faced. To compete this step, we had to purchase a 3/8 inch hex driver from the hardware store. Once we bought the hex driver, the step was easy, but beware, you will need a hex driver or a drill that can open to 3/8 inch. Also, it should be noted that one piece of the pole (it comes in 3 pieces) will look dented but that is OK, it should have the dent/fold in it that it does. With all this said, I would still recommend the product. It was a good father-son project (took about 6 hours to complete) but the end result looks promising! April 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Good Quality, Tough Assembly Make sure you have appropriate tools, wrenches, a drill with specific attachments or you will not get it together. We were missing a nut at the end and actually had a nut that the book said was required but the book never listed where it is was used. It took several hours with two people. If your not a "handy man" type person you will be better off paying someone for assembly because you will get frustrated. It seems to be good quality but its to early to know for sure. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Hoop, took time to put together The final product is great however it took me 6 hours to put together. Here are my thoughts on putting it together. 1. Putting the poles together = easy 2. Attaching poles to base and putting wheels on base = easy 3. Attaching rim to backboard = hard 4. Attaching backboard and rim to pole = hard (it was just myself and had to prop up the the pole on a ladder for this part, having a second person would help) 5. Attaching handle and adjustment piece (easy) 6. All the hardware for each step was in its own bag and labeled. The product is worth the time it took to put together. There were a couple steps I had to do twice do to unclear instructions but that was it. One thing I will say after completing this product is that with the base full of water it is very hard to lean forward and move. I had to drain water out of the base and move it to the location I wanted it in and then refill. That would be biggest completed product complaint, it is very hard to move. Adjusting the height is easy. April 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Easy to adjust, two people to put together. Ordered this online, if you do this, expect the box to be beat up. The package is over 100 pounds, it is going to be difficult to get this without damage to the box. When putting together, read pages thoroughly all the way to the bottom before starting that step. Important info at the bottom of the pages. Some of the bolts took some gentle banging to get into place. Also, it is very top heavy, be prepared to fill it as soon as you get the backboard assembly connected to the pole. Easy to adjust, my 11 yo can adjust this very easily. Spent the weekend shooting hoops and getting a sunburn. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Amazing I bought this online and that same day I went to the store and picked this thing up. The manager at the store was very nice and helpful as well. When we got home and started setting this up it took about 2-3 hours which was very long. But take this from me this is very heavy espiacially the backboard just be careful look at the instructions and it is amazing. April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great buy Easy to put together. My kids love it! Recommend it April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Did a lot of shopping. This was the best hoop for the price For my budget this was the best hoop for the price I could find $350. I didn't mind spending a little more for a better quality court because these thinks can last 10 years. It comes with a 6 year warranty. It takes some time to assemble. 1 hour for me and my buddy. But all the bolts come in bags that are numbered which made it easier to assemble than a lot of other things I put together my self. The back board and base are strong and steady. The rim has springs that let you dunk which is dope but don't hang on the rim because it is a portable base which is obvious. I like it because anyone who can reach the handle can lower and raise the hoop. So my son can grow up playing on this. But I'ma put my work on the court in the mean time. One last major plus is free shipping when ordered online. It weighs 100lbs and came via ups free. That saved me a lot of time and money April 13, 2016
