Nice product, but a bit flimsy
I recently purchased the Lifetime 71799 and installed it according to the directions. Did not use a ground sleeve, but did put into a 22'x18' square with tons of concrete. The base is very sturdy, however, the rest of the pole and backboard seem to be top heavy! There is a lot of play and bounce when a ball hits the backboard. I realize I did not buy the top-of-the-line system, but I did expect it to be sturdy. We will see how it holds up during heavy use (by my 9 year old son) and through the winter. As for the folks at Competitive Edge Products, they were great with helping me get the best deal on this goal. The item was shipped and arrived faster than expected!

Competitive Edge was a delight to deal with, but the product arrived missing hardware and with defective poles. The instruction book does not label the main pieces- only hardware, until the step dealing with that particular piece. So if you want to take inventory before assembly, it is very difficult. This definitely requires 2 people and is not for a beginner builder. I recommend using with an in-ground sleeve for stability for a number of reasons, including stability. The product appears to be of decent quality.
