The 90020 features a 48-inch wide polycarbonate backboard, a Slam-It double-spring compression rim, and a 3.5-inch round pole.

Price is right!
We checked out a lot of hoops. For our first one, we wanted to make sure we got quality without spending a lot of money. This is a great hoop. My kids are 11, 8, and 5 and they all play on it and love it. Fast delivery and what we were expecting. Good deal!

Decent product - instructions are terrible
I just got the goal installed, and unless you are an experienced handyman you could find yourself stuck on day 1. The instructions tell you to fill the hole with cement , then install the pole, which unless you have a soupy concrete mix (which is not as strong as a drier mix), you will need to remove some concrete to get the pole down to the instructed depth. It also tells you to install a Rebar after installing the pole, but since the Rebar is inside the pole you'll need a 1X1 block to put in the pole to hammer it in, and offers no suggestion on how to center the Rebar inside the pole. Also, the parts diagrams say that the pictures are actual size (unless otherwise noted), but most of the pictures were not actual size, which means you'll need to measure the bolts to make sure you use the right ones. I cant speak to the durability yet since we just installed it but I'm leery of the plastic backboard frame. I was hoping to be able to use the metal frame from my portable system but the pole does not go 10 feet up (the adjustment mechanism raises the goal to 10 by angling higher than the top of the pole). It was the cheapest in-ground system I could find but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm replacing it in a few years

works great!
I received the item in about five days and every piece was accounted for. It took me about a total of four hours to install the whole thing, minus the 72 hour waiting period. The system is solid and the adjustable rim is great for the kids.

just what they wanted
Thank your for your prompt service. It would have been here in time for Christmas but the snow storm out west delayed it, but my kids were excited to open and assemble 2 days after Christmas. Great product and loved the price and NO shipping. Thanks and have a great day!
