Goaliath 54" In-Ground Basketball Hoop 30 30
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
Great for D buck Easy install me and my sons did D Nstall great goal for D price love it. Go and buy one ur kids will love it and love U so let keep love going around.BUY IT December 5, 2014
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!

Good Value - but does have movement Overall, Dick's contractor did a very good job with install, professional and the quality and materials seems very good for the goal. One thing is that the goal has a good deal of movement/jiggling after a ball hits the backboard or goal. The installer said that is normal due to the construction, thickness of the pole and leverage. Considering it is "inground" and concrete, I must admit I am a little surprised with the movement but I paid $400 for this versus $1000+ for a Goalrilla. From a value standpoint, for the money, I still think it is a good value for an in-ground goal. November 13, 2014
Nice set up for the money Very satisfied with this hoop for the money. Easy to assemble and install. very good instructions. would recommend November 11, 2014
Not a great goal We bought this goal recently, thinking that we could save a bit of money instead of buying a Goalrilla, as we heard that the same company that makes Goaliath, also makes Goalrilla. Well, we were right about the same company owning both brands, but were dead wrong in thinking they were similar quality! If you are buying this goal, thinking it is going to be similar to a Goalrilla, you are wrong. This goal has a two-piece pole that WILL bend over time. Ours did, I've read tons of reviews now that corroborate what happened to me. The goal will lean forward, because of the weak point where the two poles are sandwiched together. Goalrillas are DIFFERENT than Goaliath's. They use a one-piece pole that WILL NOT lean forward. I have two neighbors who have had Goalrillas for years and neither of them had the problem that I did. Don't fall into the trap that I did, invest in a Goalrilla for a few hundred dollars more. November 3, 2014
Great Investment I was skeptical about this product at first due to some of the reviews that stated it was wobbly. Being my first inground basketball system I did a lot of research before I bought it for type of construction material and price and I must say I am very satisfied with this product as it very stable with very limited wobble that can't hardly be seen and does not have any effect on any type of shot. This system is a great value for durability, quality material, stability, and price. Instead of having a hole 16in diameter, I made it 20in diameter. I also squared off the hole 4in from the top. Took a little more concrete but I think it will be well worth it. This product was very easy to assemble by the detailed instructions. I was able to install the complete system by myself. I used a small amount of lubricant to put the two poles together. I stood on something about 3ft high to really get some height and good downward force when picking up the poles and slamming down. Still took a little bit but was able to get the top pole past the bottom pole line somewhat easily. I used a step ladder to put the backboard on by putting the lower arms at the height that when I placed the backboard on the top of the step ladder it would line up with the lower arms to install the bolts easily. I also checked the levelness of the system throughout the installation many times to ensure it was accurate. Overall it took me approximately 3 1/2 hours to dig the hole and pour the concrete and another 1 1/2 - 2 hours to install the system after the concrete cured for 96 hours. Once I started to play on it I was very impressed by the stability of the system. This will provide numerous hours of enjoyment for many years to come for myself and my son. This product is definitely a great value. A very satisfied customer.. September 22, 2014
Don't be skeptical! I wanted to write this review (which I never do) because I (like you) went back and forth through all the reviews on this goal...I just bought a new home and it has a 3 car driveway, so I knew I wanted to purchase a goal that would fit within my budget and would be a durable hoop that would react normal when shooting 3 pointers and give solid rebound reactions. I will admit that I was a bit concerned by the recent reviews in 2014 that this goal was wobbly and customers didn't like it, but the reviews in 2013 seemed to be all satisfied. I decided to go ahead and bite the bullet on this goal vs. spending the extra 700 - 1,000 dollars on the Goalrilla....Since I work 7-5 I knew that finding the time and patience after work to pour the concrete and worry about getting people over to help set it up would be a pain in the butt, so I decided to hire a local contractor to install the goal for me....BEST DECISION I COULD HAVE MADE! I bought the goal on Sunday and was playing on it by Thursday after work and they did a fantastic job and it was well worth the extra $$ for the professional install. My goal hardly moves at all, I had a Goalrilla growing up and this goal moves and reacts the exact same as those other high end goals! I am more than pleased with this product and you absolutely can't beat the quality for the price! Do yourself a favor, quit contemplating about getting the higher end goal and save some big cash and hire a professional to install it for the money your saving and since your saving some money buy a NBA regulation net too! I promise you will be pleased. August 22, 2014
Unbelieveable Customer Service I have never worked with a company with better customer service. We had a problem with a weld which was missed on the net hangers. It was obvious it was manufacturing miss as the rim was painted where the weld should have been. I snapped a couple of pictures and emailed my information. They responded quickly with and email and shipped a new rim. The new one was perfect and we can continue playing some hoops. July 21, 2014
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
