Great Product
This is the best looking basketball net on our street. For the final stage of assembly, you should get a couple of buddies to help put it in place. Also, buying the inground sleeve is well worth it. Keep in mind that in the northern States and Canada, you should dig the hole three to four feet deep, make sure you go below the frost line. Excellent product, great customer service and delivery.

Best Price Anywhere!
Free shipping, best price around, quality product; took a little time to assemble - some redundancy and not always completely clear directions, looks much more complicated than it really is! Every part fit perfectly, all holes lined up, all parts were included. Just put up last night, overall assembly took approximately three hours with two people going slowly and as the old adage goes "measuring twice to cut once." I expect we will be very happy with this product!

Great product, well made.
Just when I thought customer service was dead Competitive Edge Products made me a believer again. They could not have been more accommodating. Charles was my contact and he was outstanding. This product is better than the description. Well made and sturdy.
