Great for the price, but the assembly instructions were very poor. You must really study the instructions to figure out how to assemble the hoop. But, if you can get past that, it really is a good hoop. Many of the online reviews stated that the pole was subject to rusting through, from the inside out. After reviewing some of the pictures posted online, I wasn't sure if the poles actually rusted out or because they were full of water, it froze and split. Either way, to remedy the situation (after the hoop was fully assembled and installed), I ran a 1/2" piece of rebar all the way to the top. Then filled the pole with concrete, mounding the concrete on top, in place of the cap. The pole is very strong, should last forever, and rusting/freezing should not be an issue. The extra work and the $2.33 (on sale at Menards) for the extra bag of concrete was well worth it! A family friend is planning to buy one for his son's birthday (this Sunday) and assemble it the same way!
I bought this basketball hoop for my daughter. She absolutely loves it! The backboard is nice and wide. It is very easy to change the height of the hoop. It does take a couple of hours to put it together, but the directions are simple and easy to follow. Filling the base with sand did prove to be a bit of a challenge however. We decided to just place the sand bags on top of the base instead of filling it. Still stable. My daughter has played with it every day! I can't ask for more than that!
Must have wrench set and a partner for about ten minutes. Look at poles and holes with screws so you don't make mistakes of attaching wrong ends.. Sturdy enough for three growing rambunctious boys. This was a gift to my Cousin's boys and my gift to her and her husband was that I put it together. I'm a buck o five. 30 minutes tops
