Rated 4 out of 5 by Tournament Baller and Dad A True Perspective 1st....this is a true investment, so it's understandable if people complain about the wobble. Is there one....sure, but not to the point that I'm going to take it back. As for dunking....My friend is 6'5 and the very 1st thing I wanted to see was the dunking resiliency. At 10', with the hoop being at the highest flex point due to physics...the hoop performed very well. Do yourself a favor....look at the total construction (this is what I did). I took a ball and threw against the backboard in the store to hear the sound it makes and to see the wobble. Goalrilla sounded and looked way more solid. 2 reasons....the patented construction of how the arms surround the backboard (instead of in the center) and the 1 piece solid pole that is 5.5" squared (instead of a 2 piece post at 4" squared). That's why Goalrilla hoops cost 2x the amount. If my budget would've allowed me to get a Goalrilla hoop, I would have........BUT....I knew that this hoop was going to do this before I bought it and I still bought it. Why? It does exactly what I want. A great product that wobbles and sways a little bit (heavy backboard/slim arm base/4"post) that doesn't affect my shot. The function of the product is great. Most of all.....It's half the price of a Goalrilla hoop. Totally awesome for the price. Out of pure respect to both companies....If you want a pristine product that doesn't sway at all, wobble at all and it can withstand a beating of high flying dunks. Get a Goalsetter or Spalding basketball system worth $2600 . If you want a upper mid level hoop that can withstand the dunking but still wobbles. Get a Goalrilla. $1100 If you want a middle of the road hoop that does everything the others do. It does wobble a little and sways in strong winds due to the construction, but absolutely great for family use. Get a Goaliath. $500 Always remember. You get what you pay for. If it's cheaper than the others, it's for a reason. Do your homework. June 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Weekendballer Looks great, some wabble on shots, good deal. I decided to go with this goal primarily because I wasn't interested in dropping over 1000 bucks on a basketball goal. My kids like to shoot basketball, but I am under no delusion that they might make the big leagues. I picked this one up at my local Dick's on Black Friday for $350. The install takes some time, you will have to dig a monster hole in the ground. I dug the hole one evening, and then poured the concrete the next day. It took 7 1/2 bags of 80 pound concrete to fill the hole dug to specs. Setting the base in the concrete is fairly simple, the only painful part of process is the hole-digging and pouring the concrete. I had no problem getting the two pieces of pole together. Watch the YouTube video from the company's website, and you should not have much difficulty getting the poles together. I misread the directions in the manual, and I suspect many other do-it-yourselfers misread them as well. Seeing the video is very helpful. I did spray WD-40 on the poles, which was not shown on the video. It took me and a friend to hold up the back board, while my wife inserted the bolts. The rest of the process I did on my own. It took two weekends to complete the install, primarily because you need to let the concrete cure and I work until it's dark. You will notice that the backboard shakes, but it's not significant enough of a problem to concern me. The shake seems to do with the thickness of the steel in the pole. You can knock against it with your hand and see it move. I was concerned about this before hanging the back board, but once it was completed, and we started shooting basketballs at it, the shake seemed minor to me. I haven't tried putting sand or concrete in the pole, I'm not sure that it is warranted. If the shake bothers you, it might be worth a try. The ball bounces very well off of the glass, and you will have a great experience with this goal if you are not on hanging on the rim. It doesn't look like the poll is built to withstand hanging from the rim. If you expect your children or the neighbor kids to hang from the rim when they are fully grown, get a more expensive goal. But for how I plan on this being used, it looks really great by the driveway and should give my kids a lot of good exercise. December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky67 GREAT BUY! Great buy! The ONLY thing I found was that the rebar that comes with the system could be a size bigger.( At least 1/2 inch) To make the base MORE sturdy I inserted two 1/2 inch pieces of rebar in the ground in the side walls before I poured the concrete in the ground. I also put holes in the center of the base plate and, put four pieces of 1/2 inch rebar in the center of the foundation and poured about a foot of concrete over the rebar AFTER I put the completed goal system up. I poured it at the top of the goal BEFORE I capped the unit. I LOVE GOALIATH!!!!!!!!!!....HAPPY HOOPS!!!! July 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ARaj Nice Basketball Goal! I?m very happy that I bought this product instead of expensive Goalrilla and this is strong enough. The instructions were so easy to follow. I let the concrete set for 4 days as directed in instructions. On 5th day, I tried to put the pole up first and then attach the back board to it, but I found it really hard. So, I had to take pole down, attached the back board to it and lift the whole thing up. I found it easier this way. I wish I had attached backboard pads before lifting; I found it hard to drill holes once pole is up. Even though instructions say you need 4 people, it took 2 adults to hold the pole up and one more person (my 8 year old son) to put the bolts on. I didn?t try to dunk since the label on the pole says ?Don?t dunk!?. Some reviews said that the pole vibrates, but that is not the case, it?s sturdy. July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fyver Strong hoop, good quality Just installed this hoop over the weekend, but so far so good. The installation is easy enough, but a few pointers: 1) Make sure your concrete has enough time to set (min. of 3 days) 2) They're not joking when they say 4 adults for assembly. The backboard on this set is HEAVY and you'll ideally want to two guys to hold in place while the other two set the bolts. Also helps to do this from the cab of a truck if possible. Impressive quality and we're happy with it. June 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin Great value! Not sure what the problem was for the 2 unhappy buyers...sounds like they skimped on concrete or didn't know how to install correctly. Our goal is like the rock of gibraltar....NO movement at all.....I used a lot of concrete - as its a heavy cantilevered load....no issue and we never clean the backboard glass and it looks great! Very happy (4 years now) Solid value. May 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob worth the money I have only had the hoop up for 1 week, but it has met if not exceeded my expectations. Installation was easy enough and I find the system to be pretty stable. The stability and glass backboard create better than average shooting experience. May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by HuffDaddy 11 years and going strong! Don't believe the 1 star reviews. These might be guys who had trouble installing or maybe you get a bad part now and then? Obviously you should get an expensive Gorrilla if you plan on doing "gorrilla dunks" but if you are just shooting hoops and have no big dunkers in the family yet this goal is great. 11 years later mine is going strong. The plexi can seperate from the frame since it is glued on but a little silicone and it is right back to new again. I am thiking about buying another one while they are on sale since I can just drop the unit right on to my existing lower pole that is conreted into my drive way. See guys, the "2 piece pole design" might not be so bad after all. I will end up with a brand new goal and could give the old one to a friend since it is just fine, only faded and worn looking after 11 years...... Very good bang for the buck is what I am saying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJ Easy to install, quality hoop Install directions were easy to follow. Individual parts were labeled appropriately. Took 2-3 hours to dig hole and fill with concrete. Waited 2 days and completed install with wife(although I would recommend having 2 additional people for hanging backboard) in 2 hours. Great value- paid $499 in June 2013. July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sean Great for the price! Bought it to shoot hoops with the kids...not to make the NBA draft. LOL It does wobble a bit but nowhere near the amount that my old portable hoop did. It was easy to assemble and install if you follow the instructions. If you want a relatively inexpensive glass backboard then it is a great unit...if you want a sturdier and more solid unit then buy one with a 6"x6" single pole and pay the extra $600+. You often get what you pay for, but I think at this price you get more. *** If you want a Mercedes then pay for it, if not then please don't act surprised when your Chevrolet is not as nice *** June 11, 2014
