Rated 4 out of 5áby 51 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby For the price, great! After reading some of the reviews I was skeptical about installing myself. Generally pretty handy around the house, but digging holes and mixing/pouring concrete I've never really done before. As other reviews stated, the hole was definitely the most labor intensive. It really wasn't that bad, but it required the most work of the process. Regular old shovel, a spade, and a post hole digger. I took another reviewers advice and added more rebar. Don't know exactly if it's necessary, but figured it couldn't hurt. I drove in 3 rods of 1/2" - 4ft rebar. Left them about 2ft out of the bottom of the hole. After beginning the concrete pour I used the rebar that came with the hoop. I didn't use concrete forms. In hindsight I should've. It would have made for a nice flat top of concrete. It seems that after shifting around the base plate to get level, I created a low point in the center. Not the end of the world I would guess. I let the concrete cure quite a while only because we went on vacation. The pole assembly just required some attentive reading. Another review recommended greasing the bottom pole to slide the top pole over. I did that and had no issues with getting the top pole to the recommended mark. Leveling was easy because I was overly meticulous with the base plate. A buddy helped me with the backboard, but I could see how some people would use three people for this step. We got lucky because once we set up my ladder (gorilla ladder) and lifted the backboard to the top of the ladder (he was on one side and I was on the other), the lower arm was lined up on my side. We used a scrap 2x4 on top of the ladder to push up the other end of the backboard because the driveway is on a slight slant so the ladder wasn't level. It all worked great. 2 & 1/2 hours on the hole and maybe 90 minutes on the pole/backboard. There is minor sway at 7.5' height and practically none at 10'. Use your muscles and tighten it down at the base. For $600 it's a great deal. If you want it perfect with no sway and whatever else the others complained about, go spend more. Knock yourself out. This hoop looks and plays great in the driveway. I would recommend it to anyone. July 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby So far, so good We've only had this hoop in for about 5 days, but so far, so good. As many other reviewers have said, there is a fair amount of wobble in the hoop, but it doesn't adversely affect game play or anyone's ability to have fun with the hoop. It is really nice looking, and raises and lowers easily enough for my older kids to do it. We have four daughters, ages 6-13, and they are all loving playing basketball with this hoop. We did opt to have the hoop professionally installed, using a company other than the one Dick's contracts with. I read terrible reviews about their contractor, but our installer did a great job. I do think we could have installed it ourselves, but without the professional equipment it would've taken much longer and I don't think we could've done as good of a job as the professionals did. Anyway, we are nothing but pleased with our purchase, great value for the money! June 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Nice hoop at a good sale price Hardest part was digging the hole. Assembly was very easy. My son commented on the perfect size of backboard. June 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great hoop for the price This has been a great investment for our family. Our 7yr old loves it and there seems to a gathering of neighborhood kids here everyday to play. Installation was pretty easy. Spent one day digging the hole and putting the post together. One day putting in the concrete and setting the base. Finally, once the concrete cured, I installed the post by myself and attached the backboard with some help. For the backboard, it can be done with 2 people. I would recommend 3 to be safe. Some reviews mention that the hoop shakes and it does from a hard missed shot off the rim or corner of backboard. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5. This is an excellent home/recreation hoop. It fared well through the winter (In NC so not too extreme but some ice and snow). It appears to be holding up well in the summer heat too. I would definitely recommend and buy again. June 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5áby Awful Stick with literally any other hoop! Everything is just terrible June 16, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5áby Well worth the money Good instructions, goes up easily and the kids love it. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Easy install This product went together easily, nice sturdy construction! Hope it holds up to the Michigan elements. April 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Easy installation and works well Good installation instructions and well designed. Good performance for the price point. Bankboard vibration is acceptable for a 4" square pole. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent Hoop Excellent goal, first off this was on sale for $499 and installation was a couple hundred. Installation was within a week or so and looks and performs well. I've had this for about 6 months and it still performs well. I do suggest to tighten some bolts here and there as it tends to get a little wobbly every once and a while. This can be lowered to 7.5 feet to help with skill level. Even though it doesn't recommend you dunk on this goal, it can take some heavy slams from time to time. The goal is used daily or sometimes weekly. Overall, after 6 months this is a good, high quality goal and is still going strong March 20, 2016
