Rated 5 out of 5 by Free Just a nice piece of equipment I've had the Beast now for 2 months now. All I can say is it is really nice, well made, and easy to operate. Took my Brother and me 3 hours to put it together. Here's the deal, follow the instructions, don't over tighten bolts/screws that are going to need to move or be near/on glass. It seems simple in concept, but something we sometimes overlook. I bought the unit in the store, of course they don't stock these, so the shipping is quite expensive, (over $200#, but that's just the way it is. I used a 20% off coupon so that more or less covered the shipping. It comes scheduled delivery via LTL carrier on two pallets. The base is pre-assembled from factory, so that saves a little time. Take your time, and follow instructions, lay everything out, and get to work. If you know what you?re doing, then you could probably have this assembled in 2 hours or so. My Brother and I ate some pizza, listened to some music, and had several diversions, so we took our time. The build quality of the goal is excellent, everything is powder coated, and engineered for the long-haul. The backboard is solid, and has a much different feel #similar to a pro goal) than the old flimsy portable goals everyone is use to. This is pro-grade. I've attached a just put together photo and then on from May 22. The little NBA sticker is losing its color, but the Texas sun will pretty much fry anything have many days in the direct sun. Everyone deserves this goal, it's portable, solid, and just fun to play on. Adjustable goal height, so even I can dunk. May 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike 50 The Beast by Spaulding is easy to put together and high quality materials . Just finished putting up "The Beast" and was impressed with the ease of putting it all together by myself and the quality of the material. Directions and organization of parts was excellent . Took me about 3 hours total from box opening to standing it up . Haven't used it yet as it is a birthday present for my grandson and he gets first shot . Very happy so far and am hoping it is going to be worth the extra dollars at checkout . I would have given it 5 stars had I used it for a week or so and all was still in good working order. Expect it to be a 5 for most users. Mike May 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hens Better than expected, and I was hoping for the best! I have played basketball for over 50 years, taught and coached as a profession. I was so particular about the type of hoop I wanted on my driveway twenty years ago that I actually had it built from wood to duplicate playground and summer camp hoops I treasured. I was especially concerned when replacing my driveway basket with a portable hoop that it would turn out to be flimsy with a lot of reverberation and a clanky rim. The Beast turns out to be everything I wanted and more. It is incredibly sturdy with a professional appearance, and rivals any basket in a high school or college gymnasium (and I've played in both). It took my wife and I most of a day to install but we actually had fun doing so. The materials out of which it is made are of the highest quality and feel and look like they will last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alelovesbasketball98 This hoop is awesomeee!! Heey, the hoop is excelent, I just wanted to ask, how much does it weight? I love it! August 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by David Half hour of use...then shattered One of my 6th grade students (who weights about 80 pounds) dunked the ball. Didn't hang on the rim at all. The backboard completely shattered. The hoop lasted for exactly 28 minutes after setup. May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by bsiska Very sturdy goal This is a really solid, well-built goal set. It's kind of a project to assemble, and some of the tolerances in how the holes line up are off, but it is quite doable if you have an assistant and a decent tool box. The rim and backboard deflect the ball about as well as any fixed basketball goal, which surprised me, because I was used to more flimsy goals. A great alternative to an in-ground goal. The beast can be easily moved to the most level part of the driveway. May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by HoopsDad Great hoops system Our first purchase was a smaller hoop w/shatterproof glass. Shatterproof has a deadening effect on the ball when it hits the backboard - a good idea if you are confined space and don't want to chase balls all over the place. Downside is that it does not simulate a real backboard and for kids, they are in for a surprise when they take to the court in a gym. There are less expensive ways to get a real bounce off the backboard than the Beast but I made the mistake of buying a cheaper/lesser quality system last time and did not want to do it again (what other surprises would I find). The Beast is awesome, everything about it is heavy duty and screams quality. My kids are out there every day and absolutely love it. Definitely get the assembly offer, Dick's doesn't stock this thing so you are going to pay for delivery anyway, it's not that much more to add assembly to it and they are done in an hour.
