    Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 89reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by We just got this for our son. The shipping box, as other reviewers have mentioned, is not strong enough. Part of the contents fell out when I moved it from where FedEx left it. At least nothing was lost nor damaged.I started assembling the back board this afternoon. The instructions are awful. The pictures are helpful but there isn't enough detail. I had a few things I had to redo because the instructions were so poor that when the next step was needed it wouldn't work because the previous was off a bit. I enjoy assembling things and like puzzles (my husband hates it). This has been quite a challenge. Some of the assembly I had to figure out based on what seemed logical the instructions were so incomplete. Once the cement is dry and we can get the whole thing up, I'll be interested to see how that goes.The back board is some what flimsy feeling, I thought it would be thicker. We'll have to see how it holds up to teenagers.Be sure to read, reread and finger tighten only, until you are sure everything is together correctly. 07/30/2012
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by For the price you can't go wrong. It's made somewhat well, was disapointed with the backboard - not the greatest material.But overall happy with it. 06/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by hoop-la Our recent purchase of an inground basketball system has prvoen to be very successful. It was easy enough to install and the kids are getting alot of use from it. 08/10/2009
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by You get what you pay for. Product is of high quality and easy to assemble, however you get what you pay for and the overall material is average. The goal is the size it says and is OK for beginning players. The pole material is well made but a little thin and will flex some when you are shooting long ones. If you are looking for a goal for beginners and are willing to change when the players get better and need a steady backboard or for the best LOW cost unit, then this is the unit for you. 06/25/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great purchase My 9 year old loves the net and now we have a family activity that even my husband and I and the adult neighbors will play with him "shooting hoops" - we shoot on my lunch or right after school - nothing to pull out or clean up. Love the adjustable height. 09/09/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by You get what you pay for! The assembly instructions need revamping! In the manual, there aren't any clear directions as in where the (MK# 1/2" x 2-5/16" metal spacers are to be installed. I later learned that these are vital to the proper spacing/alignment of the #LB/RB) brackets. You can get a much clearer look at how the spacers are to be installed by going to Take a look at the basketball system 90084. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the instruction manual link. "Open" the .pdf file. Scroll to page 27 of the manual and look at sections 3.1 and 3.2. There, you will see a MUCH better broken down diagram for this part of the assembly! 03/25/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great hoop I wasn't sure what to expect with this since I ordered it online. It's a good hoop and seems to be made pretty well. I have seen a lot of people complain about the instructions being complicated but I actually found them to be pretty easy to understand. I don't know if maybe the company improved the instructions after other people posted complaints but I didn't have any trouble understanding. 04/09/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Excellent In-ground basketball system! This is an excellent product for the price. The instructions were easy to follow in most cases. The backboard is made of Plexiglas and is pretty loud when the ball bounces off. 06/08/2014
