Goaliath 54" In-Ground Basketball Hoop
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.

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.

I'm not sure bout these other 2 reviews, but I've had this same system for over 5 years now and it has handled a lot of abuse. Doesn't wobble and is still level after 5 years. The light is kinda cheap but.... That's not a big deal. Great goal.

The pole cannot withstand teenage boys dunking/hanging on the rim and it actually bent. Came home from work one day and it was lying in the yard where it had fallen down. It was concreted in the ground and still fell? Spend the extra money for a better system.

Buy a good one
I'm giving up. We have had this goal now for 2 years...I thought I would save a little money and not by one of the sturdier models. Big mistake. I installed the goal per instructions and even with extra concrete it wobbles terribly. Additionally, I'm now on my 3rd light as the very cheap halogen light fixture has small ceramic insulators around the bulb contact that can't stand the wobbling of the light fixture in the wind. The backboard is impossible to clean. My advice...buy a more robust system. You'll be happier in the long run.
