Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken Goaliath 60" assembly I read lots of reviews prior to buying, most reviews commented on how much the assembly would sway- I followed the directions and watched youtube videos on installation. took my time and followed them to a "T". must use 4 people to install the glass. we stood in the back of my pick up so we didn't lift as high. my daughters and i have played basketball everyday since installed, the hoop does not rock or sway and is very sturdy. (we had a portable hoop prior and it was real unstable) my opinion, if you follow the directions and take your time (about 3 hours after base is set in concrete for 5 days) you will be very happy. i compared similar products from Great escapes, and other local sporting goods stores this was the best package for the money. kit included the glass pads, yard protector and pole pad. also filed out credit application for an addition 5% savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by iPlay No complaints Was a little skeptical going with a 60" backboard on a two piece 4" pole but it is as solid as it's going to be. Good, solid action off the glass and minimal vibrations unless you really brick one. I really liked how all the hardware is laid out on a piece of cardboard and labeled for easy identification. Directions were clear and easy to follow and apart from the digging and pouring, took less than 90 minutes of assembly, install and adjustments. Great driveway system but it would certainly hold up to more intense play if needed. Great value as well since I got it on sale for $600 and used a $50 coupon off that. Some tips:Build a square form for the top of the concrete pour. Makes leveling easier and looks nice when it's finished. Mix the last bag or two of concrete a little dryer/stiffer. This will keep the anchor plate from sinking in. When setting the pole, do not make it plumb to the court. Keep it out of plumb leaning away from court about 1/2". When the backboard is attached, the weight will pull it forward to plumb. June 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary13 Not the best of the best but... I researched several hoops and couldn't justify spending $1200+ since I was just looking for something to shoot around with the kids. I didn't want anything too cheesy either. So I went with the 60" Goaliath w/Yard Guard. This unit is everything you would expect. The hardest part of the install is digging the 16" x 16" 36" deep hole (95% clay ground). DO NOT skimp on this part if you want your hoop to be sturdy and last for many years. Other thoughts: *Need 3 capable adults to install the backboard. I used my pickup truck bed and found this was better than any ladder, it was a breeze. * The Yard Guard is a nice feature and folds up nicely to the unit. * Watch you tube videos for any installation concerns (slamming the poles together and pouring the concrete. They recommend getting 9 80lb bags, I used 7. All in all this is an excellent hoop, very durable, no vibration and straight forward installation. You can have it installed for $400 if you don't want to mess with it but then your up to $1200. Just follow the instructions and don't skimp on anything April 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 65ACcobraman Very good quality product I bought this equipment for my 8 year old daughter to practice on and it seems to be well designed and the component quality is very good. The instructions are well done and easy to read. All of the hardware bolts, safety nuts, backboard, hoop are heavy duty and the coatings on all of the components are tough and look good. The only down side to this system is it takes about a week to do the installation correctly. It's not an easy install. 800 lbs of concrete is needed and a minimum of 72 hours of dry time for the concrete. So don't think you are going to complete it in a weekend. Overall it's a great system just be prepared to put in more than a few hours on the install. July 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by GoCards Very nice product First of all, the instructions were very easy to follow. Most anyone should be able to put this up, but you will need extra bodies to install the backboard. We just installed this weekend and have played several games. The backboard has such good bounce to it and the rim is solid. Just like being at a gym. The only turnoff is the movement of the goal. Seems like the weight of the backboard makes it wobble more than expected, but it really did not bother our game. For the price ( and I looked for a long time at all products), it is a good deal. I may try some ideas of others to reduce the wobble a bit. Including adding concrete to the inside of the pole. I did use larger rebar than what was provided in the kit. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Goody Very Good System Easy to put together. Recommend reviewing you tube videos prior to digging hole for cement. I didn't until after and this would have saved me time by understanding how professionals do it, simple once you know. We use it nightly and it has been working great! June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AL Great Hoop I bought and installed this hoop exactly as advised with concrete and have never had problems with the shaking others are talking about, March 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by backyard hoops It's not a Goalrilla Purchased this system about 2 weeks ago. I did not put it in myself. I found a reliable company on craigslist that installed the hoop for less than the Dick's price. Overall, I knew what I was getting compared to the Goalrilla systems. It does have some backboard movement on certain shots (ie 'wobble). Obviously, the farther away we are from the basket when shooting, the more 'wobble' we see. However, by the time we get the rebound and shoot the next shot, the backboard is back to stable. I kind of knew the wobble would happen but I wanted a 60 backboard system and didn't want to spend $2000. August 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by - Happy so far! Kids love it. Looks great. There is some movement of the pole when you thow a brick....but overall it's perfect. We paid much less than the Goalrilla (which is certainly more sturdy) and it seems perfect for driveway basketball and practice June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spur Good Good goal. I poured the pole with concrete and get minimal deflection on the pole. Not sure of the wobble I see others talking about. February 11, 2014
