Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★by 65reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great product. Directions a bit vague. My 14 year old son and I assembled the basketball hoop in about two hours. I had him do most of the work as I supervised and thought it was a good experience for him. I took the suggestion of a previous rater and removed all the hardware from its packaging, placed it on a piece of packing cardboard and labeled them. This took a little time but made the assembly process go smoother. My only complaint is that some of the steps are vague. Both the written instructions and diagram need to be studied thoroughly before you complete the step, and it doesn't help that the first step is the most complicated. It is also very important that the three sections of the pole are assembled correctly. If not, the unit will not work. Take a look at the picture of the finished product and it will help. All in all, with a little time and patience, you will be playing in no time on a high quality backboard. 11/27/2013
Rated 4 out of 5 Good Stuff, worth the extra $100-200? Not so much I live in Fl, and bought this system about 3 years ago. I wanted something durable and that could handle my weight when dunking. It has held up well until recently. In the past few months, the base developed small pinhole leaks on the bottom. Of course, I tried patching, but to no surprise it didnt work and I resorted to stacking heavy things on it to keep it on the ground. Recently playing with my son, I cracked the backboard from a one- armed +3 point range shot, then my son finished the cracked section off with another direct bank shot near where mine was and it promptly shattered that area of the backboard. I will say the environment and use is at least partly to blame. Anything left outside here in sunny Florida gets aged a lot faster than normal. Heat does crazy things to any kind of plastics or canvas. That being said the base this past year has been moved and drug on and off asphalt , whereas previously mainly concrete. I priced a new base, $70 shipped and a new backboard, $124 shipped) So now I'm looking at spending $200 to rebuild, $325 + tax for exact new replacement, or $250+ tax for a little bit lessor of a system. Hmmmm 01/07/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★by Error in assembly instructions I found the instructions easy to follow along with except for attaching the cross braces that attach to the base. The instructions indicate a 5/8" screw that was mentioned in the parts list, but not in the parts identification section. I would up going to the hardware store to purchase the parts. I even bought 3/4" long screws to give myself a little extra length to make it easier. I was barely able to get the 3/4" long screws on. After the assembly was complete, I found two longer screws (about 2") that were left over and would have been more appropriate (and would have saved me a trip to the hardware store at 9PM!). Once assembly was complete and the base filled with water, I was very impressed with the sturdiness and design. This was definitely the best hoop I could find in the price range. The hand crank works great for infinite adjustments instead of having to move it 6" at a time. It also makes for easy quick height adjustments when the kids want to slam dunk. 08/06/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★by Seems to be ok missing pole pad Did not come with Pole Pad or threaded water level indicatorCalled Spalding and they stated that the model I got does not come with it.Amazon also lists this model with pole padI find it curious how the spalding website doesn't have it on it, maybe they are trying to cover for their own mix up.I assembled it myself it was a little awkward to handle alone installing the back board but I had a sawhorse and the back of my pickup to keep it aligned just had to place the wheeled base up on a block so it didn't roll out.Parts tray has all the parts and then some just go by the length of the bolts one tray has 4 bolts in it and 2 of them are the ones your looking for to bolt the base on they are threaded the whole length not like the pic. I would have preferred a grade 5 or better bolt for the pole but gravity works with it so it'll probably be ok. In my opinion all of the fasteners should be Stainless though.I plan to fill it with Sand once I decide where it will stay for a while. 01/15/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by GREAT B-Ball Court & Best Price W/ FREE Shipping!! Me, My Son & Friends Love it! We Just Wheel it Out onto the Street & Play Games in Front of My Home. We’ll See how it Holds Up W/ Time Though (Built March 2013)?? 03/13/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★by Very good system but not as advertized/pictured This basketball hoop is good quality and was relatively simple to assemble. It appears like it will last several years and was a good investment. The main issue is that the item is pictured and is described as including a pole pad though it is not included. This needs to be corrected in the photo and description. 03/04/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★by Did not come as advertised The hoop was very difficult to assemble. The pole comes in three separate sections and it was nearly impossible to fit them together. The hoop also did not come with the rim that was advertised in the picture also it did not come with the pole pad. I called spalding and they said this model does not come with a pole pad and that they have told walmart this but walmart continues to advertise it that way. Once together though my kids love it. Good price but lots of headaches. 04/15/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by great hoop! High quality for great price! Very sturdy, but definitely need sand or water due to heaviness. Would recommend for all ages- crank style to raise or lower, very easy to use. 04/14/2014
