I purchased it for my 9-year-old son. It suits his purposes. The reality of purchasing these basketball "systems" is that you can spend big bucks. You can buy the 4inch thick post and the glass backboard. I guess Lebron James would buy something like that for his kid. However, those of us who must count on saving money need to buy something that is workable. The shipping cost was right (free) and Fed Ex delivers. I'm a satisfied customer.
The cost of basketball systems has an extreme range these days. This system by Lifetime is an excellent buy! The materials and construction are excellent and well worth the money. The savings for what we paid for this Lifetime Basketball System on Overstock saved us hundreds on what similar products cost at local sporting good chains. We love the price and the fact that this system has the one lever system to adjust the height of the hoop without needing any tools. Great Basketball system I would recommend to everyone.
Very well made for the price. Back board Tends to move when you hit the ball but very minimal. Will preffer $** tempered glass if budget permits. Easy to assemble, confusing instructions at times.
This thing is very heavy and you need 2 people to put it together, but once done it's very sturdy. Adjusting the height is very easy. The base is very large and holds it to the ground very well. My only issue with this goal is the sound of the backboard when hitting jumpers off the glass. It has a kind of thud sound. This is a great hoop though.
