Overall nice but instructions were horrible!!!
My two boys love the hoop but it was a pain in the rear end to put together. Next time I will happily pay $100.00 to have installers put together. Also, the back board came damaged on the back but it wasn''t enough for me to package it back up and send back. When I lifted the top of the box, there was no foam to protect the back board. Hence why it was damaged. You definitely need two adults and a third person would be an added plus. The directions were horrible! Make sure you read them very carefully and do not attempt to do it on your own. It took us about 4 1/2 hours because we had to do a few things over.

do not NOT BUY
Do not be swayed by all of these good reviews! This goal is actually completely terrible. First off, the rim bounces WAY too much and I have had multiple people come to look at it and it was concluded that it was a bad design. Next, this is not for competitive play whatsoever. When it is dunked on it shakes everywhere, much more so then lower end models that I have seen. Also, the setup is very complicated and requires a mechanical engineer for some parts like the lift system. The backboard is paper thin and after just a little bit of use it has started to cave in on itself. If you want something that is anything other than a low end starter goal, get something else. I have no idea why this go such high reviews, this is honestly a completely terrible product.

This is a fantastic system. It took 7 hours to assemble but that was the only bad thing. Great deal for the whole family.

Great Product - Best Price Around
This was a pretty straightforward and easy assembly ... took a couple hours and it would have gone quicker had I had a helper. Very pleased with the product. Height adjustment is incredibly easy, so my 5 and 9 year old can play at their respective heights, and mine as well ... Very pleased with the product, and it arrived quickly, and as promised.

Nice Basketball System
Glad I bought this one. Easy to follow instructions but time consuming. Must be a small rim though, when I shoot, ball doesn''t go in like lbs does.
