Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy I bought this 1 month ago and we love it. The height is easily adjustable and so far the backboard has been sturdy. Recommend having it professionally installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USE EXCESS REBAR - Concrete is most important part!!! Unit raises and lowers with extreme ease, and is exactly what I wanted in a tempered glass unit. Unit has NO wobble under normal play (see my installation method below to understand why). Backboard is perfect size. I would definitely buy this goal over the more expensive tempered glass units. I'm 29 years old, and bought this goal as a Christmas present for my 6 year old, and 2 year old for future use (and myself to be honest). I grew up playing travel ball year round as well as playing in college and always wanting a unit like this. I had friends in my teenage years whose parents bought them the expensive tempered glass units when they first hit the market for outdoor use, and I knew "wobble" could be a problem. I believed the problem to be caused from poor concrete installation. So upon installing the unit, here was my solution and it worked perfectly. 1) Dig the hole as directed in the installation guidelines. You can make the hole bigger but definitely NOT smaller. I only went 28" deep. 2) Take the 1/4" or 3/8" rebar that comes with your unit and trash it. Better yet, recycle it and use the money to help you buy a heavier gauge rebar. I bought 6 pieces of 4' long x 5/8" rebar from Lowes. Cut them in half (Lowes will probably do this for you), and use all 12 pieces in the concrete to strengthen it. 3) Place 4 of the pieces as directed in the installation guidelines, and place the other 8 pieces randomly throughout the concrete (see picture for reference). 4) Follow the rest of the installation guidelines making sure you allow the concrete to cure properly. I live in NC and the day I poured the concrete it was in the mid 30s and stayed that way 3 days. Then cold rain followed the next 2 days. Therefore, I allowed the concrete to cure for 2 weeks. The unit has NO wobble under normal play. Even when shooting bank shot 3 pointers, the unit holds strong. The only time it wobbles is when I dunk. Even then the unit will only wobble for 10-15 seconds before equalizing. (Note: Dunking is fine on the unit as long as you don't hang on the rim, or dunk with extreme force. In other words, just slam the ball home without causing your weight and force to break-away the rim. Do so at your own risk).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jim Product is good so far (it's only been up for a few days). Ordered it from store and it was ordered incorrectly, so had to return original back to store and reorder. So wasn't able to get it set up in time for Christmas as intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Vibrates a little, but it doesn't affect our play at all. We had it professionally installed through Dicks without a hitch. The whole family loves it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I purchased this for my teenage son and friends. The directions are fairly straightforward and I had no issues putting this together. I added a step to the "manufacturer's" instructions and filled the bottom pole with concrete to help with stabilization. I don't know how well it would have performed without adding concrete, but after reading the other reviews, I didn't take the chance and eliminated any "wobble". It's not a $2000 system, but definitely worth the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fixable this goal is not worth the price after installation. the backboard wobble is terrible with any balls hitting the backboard. thus, creativity was needed to get it the point where it is adequately stable for routine basketball play.so, I was able to stabilize the goal by the following:1. pour ready mix concrete into the pole ,just up to the first screw. it took me to 2.5 - 60# concrete bags to get it nearly full. you should let it set for a full week before any ball play on it.2. get 2 metal 2 inch 4 to 6 foot "L" struts at Lowe's etc. you must cut them in spots and bend them to create an additional cross strut that goes to the EDGE of each side of the backboard. this is where the wobble originates. I believe that if you do not want to do it yourself, or you do not have a good handyman to do so, alternatively, you can likely order the two side struts of the 54 inch similar goal, from the "goalrilla" parts store and drill your own holes on the main pole and on the metal side of the goal. you would also have to drill some new holes on the purchased struts as well.alternatively, I did not do this, but it is probably worth the $60 gamble to fix this poorly engineered goal. or make your own via the L STRUTS AND drilling holes.. if you decide to do this, I recommend that you drill your holes about 4inches in parallel from the top bolt in the main pole and measure the IDENTICAL distance on the basketball goal frame. they have to be precisely positioned or the vertical adjustment mechanism will bind up. you will need appropo screws, nuts and Bushings , all available at lowes, etc.I am also going to screw in a 3rd L steel pole horizontal parallel strut into the new moveable struts about 4-6 inches from the back board. 3. I was able to twist a wire attached to a tree near my goal to further tighten up the goal by using single stranded 14 gauge wire and twisting with a screw driver in the middle of the wire looped around the top of the goal..voila, now you have a fairly stable goal with only a hint of wobble. thus I prevented myself from tearing out the whole danged thing and starting over. I cannot believe that this store will not get an aftermarket set of struts to fix this problem for the legions of unhappy folks. or perhaps insert a third set of struts in the original packaging. this is a lot of work to fix this thing. if you do not get the goalrilla parts , make your own.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent hoop but expect wobble followed installation as instructed. dug hole and poured concrete base with anchor kit positioned exactly as instructed. 4 days later assembled hoop and finished installing hoop. the instructions were fairly easy to follow and all hoop parts seemed good quality. however i am disappointed in the wobble with this hoop. i expected some brief wobble after a shot but is worse than i expected. any shot to hoop causes continued wobble well afterward. whole backboard wobbles for continuous minute following shot.not a violent wobble but noticeable. appears 2 piece pole assembly is constructed with thinner flexing steel which probably results in the wobble. not a bad hoop for money but still disappointing. if you dont want wobble you better splurge and buy a higher end hoop such as goalrilla. i contacted escalade sports and they just told me that some "vibration" as they called it is normal with this model. also this hoop is not designed for dunking as clearly indicated by manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
