Should I fill the portable base with sand or water?

That depends entirely on how much weight you think you will need to hold up to how the system will be used. As noted on the product, when filled with water, the base weighs about 248 lbs. When filling the base with sand, the base typically weighs about 1.5 times the weight of the base filled with water, depending on the density of the sand you use. Note that the heavier the base, the sturdier the system; but, the system will also be more difficult to move.

What are the differences with the 71522, the 90088, and the 71524?

Differences between models 71522, 90088, and 71524: The 71522 has an Acrylic board for improved rebound and less flex, but is less strong than the polycarbonate boards that the 90088 and 71524 have. The 71522 has a 1.5-inch thick backboard frame. The 71524 and 90088 have a 1-inch thick frame. The 71522 and 90088 have rigid extension arms that mount directly to the board frame. The 71524 uses standard straight extension arms that mount to a Y-bracket instead of directly to the backboard. They are all great systems that will last many years.

5 out of 5 stars 54" Backboard Model 71522
by rsc92 from New York on 4/15/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This replaces a 52" basketball system that was destroyed by a neighbors contractor (long story). Assembly was quick and easy, perhaps because we had recently assembled a very similar unit approximately one year ago. I found the instructions and diagrams adequate. My 11 year old son and I put it all together in about 3 or 4 hours. The backboard has good bounce and the rim is solid! This time we elected to fill the base with water instead of sand. In my opinion, if you never intend on moving the basketball system, then sand is the way to go, however, if you may need to relocate it, then water is a better option. Although the water filled base weighs less than a sand filled base, it still seems very sturdy. For extra piece of mind, I may put a sand bag or two on top of the base, but it probably is not necessary. Overall, I am very happy with the unit. Like I said earlier it replaces a very similar unit which we had for about a year before it got wrecked. The unit is well made and the power lift system makes raising the lowering the backboard effortless. I would recommend this unit to my friends.

4 out of 5 stars Solid product - good quality
by SSK from Maryland on 9/17/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This system took professionals about an hour and 45 minutes to assemble. The system is solid and the backboard is stable with very little movement on shots. Huge backboard. The lift system is excellent though a little harder than I thought for say my 7 year old daughter. The backboard makes a sort of strange sound on bank shots, like a drum, by no big deal. Overall I like the system a lot and would recommend it. On odd thing is the base does not line up directly under the backboard. In other words the base is positioned slightly angles in order to get the backboard lines up square with the driveway. That could have just been the assemblers fault though.
