Product: Spalding Portable Basketball Hoop - The Beast - 74560 60 inch Glass Backboard Goal System.

Shipping Costs are included in the pricing of this product to the continental 48 states.

While most every other consumer end basketball manufacturer does not produce a portable basketball hoop backboard larger than 54 inches, and certainly not made of glass, the Spalding model 74560 portable basketball system features a 60 inch glass backboard. Glass is a superior product to comparable backboard sizes made in acrylic or polycarbonate because glass provides you a better rebound comparable to what is used in a collegiate or even professional setting. The 60 inch backboard size gets you as close a regulation sized backboard as you can get in a portable system. The Pro-Image breakaway rim helps stand up to aggressive play.

Spalding Beast-Holds its name
The truck delivers the unit in 3 large boxes. It does take a very long time to put together (at least 4 hours) but it is pretty easy except for the lifting parts. My 3 kids did the most of it except for the lifting parts. We used water to fill and went according to the instructions. It does take at least 2-3 people as some have to hold while you fill so the unit does not tip. With water it is still very sturdy. After finally getting it together to use my twin boys think it is AWESOME and one of the best things they ever received. They are going to be starting Freshman (HS) basketball and this unit is definitely better than what we had. The glass makes a super difference. Enjoy!

Well worth the investment!
It took some time (3 1/2 +/- hours)to assemble, yes. Follow the directions and its simple. The hardest was part was filling with sand (my choice) because you had to stand it up every 50 # to get it to slide to the other end. When we passed 400 pounds it took 3 people to get it to tilt over, at 600 it took 5 people. My thoughts were if it were to blow over, it will make one hell of a mess as the glass will shatter, so why not fill with the heaviest possible. If your intent was to create a stiff (not wobbly) and realistic portable hoop/backboard, then this is it. It is truly portable within some realistic boundaries. In other words, it will not be able to go four wheeling without sinking. The unit weighs over 1,000 pounds now and will roll on a hard surface but its not going to go real far without a relatively flat hard surface and with several people to assist. Love the pivoting front wheels. Bounce from the glass is very realistic, unlike the previous composite backboard system we had. The rim has very little shake after impact due to the 6" square tube and 4 braces that hold the backboard. I wanted to give both my kids (both play year round and are either currently a varsity or will be a varsity HS player) the opportunity to play on a realistic hoop. I have achieved what I wanted. I was worried about The $1,000 purchase price at first, but now that I have it, I am very happy with my selection.
