What do we think about this model?
This is a very popular model. The competitive price, free pole pad, lifetime
warranty, and free shipping are all huge benefits with this model. This model is
manufactured by Mammoth, but it is marketed a little differently. It has the "Competition"
logo instead of the "Mammoth" logo. Its very similar to the 98862 model the big
difference being that this model is Acrylic and the 98862 is glass. The glass is
considered an upgrade and is more expensive to make. That accounts for the difference
in price. Many customers who have purchased this in the past might assume that it
is glass since Acrylic is the next best thing and plays similar to glass. These
are definitely high-end basketball systems. You do not see these in drive ways as
often as the lower-end goals.
Assembly on this takes about 3.5 hours with two people (5-7 required when hoisting
it onto the anchor plate) and is well worth the time. They do not wobble or shake.
Its very similar to playing in a high school or gym. Because of the size of the
pole, these poles anchor into the ground. Do not be intimidated by the cement work.
Its a piece of cake. You simply follow the instructions one step at a time and you
done before you know it. The instructions are designed for parents to assemble;
not contractors so even if you are not too handy you should not be worried. There is
some prep work you can do while this is in transit on the way to you. The hole that
you dig is 4 deep and 21"x21" square. It is recommended that you put it right next
to the playing surface. These are too large to ship with UPS or FedEx so they ship
on a pallet via Roadway or ABFS. They call you to schedule a delivery as someone
does have to be home to sign for it. It comes in three large boxes. Give our customer
service a call if you have any questions.
