Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 16reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Beast of a Product, Before AND AFter Assembly I conducted a decent amount of research on the Internet before deciding on Spalding's "Beast" as a portable basketball hoop for our driveway.Fearing that cheaper models would blow over and/or wear out quickly, I looked at more robust models and since other reviews of the Beast were very positive, I paid the extra $$$ for the quality.Simply put, it's a great outdoor goal. It's big, strong, and most importantly, a lot of fun for my two boys and their friends who now frequent our driveway seemingly day and night.There is a caveat, however, and that is that the Beast is far from easy to assemble. Other reviews stated the same thing but since I'm pretty mechanically inclined, I discounted the accounts of taking two to four adults four to five hours to construct. Boy, was I wrong.It took us Saturday and part of Sunday, mostly because I sheared off a bolt when assembling the pole to the base unit and had to go to the hardware store to buy a replacement. It was a little frustrating but as I mentioned before, the bottom line (now that it's installed) is that it's a great hoop and we're having lots of fun.Just don't buy this product if you're thinking it's a snap to assemble... Be prepared to invest a significant amount of time and effort before the fun can begin. 06/08/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Basketball System Love it so far. Shipment arrived on a pallet in three boxes. Assembly was a breeze! The first assembly step, attaching the lower tank to the base frame, was already done for me. I took the advice of other reviews that I've read and greased the ends of the pole sections prior to joining them, I think it helped somewhat. All hardware (nuts/bolts/washers) for each assembly stage were packaged in seperate, color coded blister packs, really nice! Took the guesswork out of it. After you get the backboard on, you will definitely need two adult-sized people to lift the goal upright. All in all, took me about 2-1/2 hours to put together. I opted to fill the tank with water (plus non-toxic antifreeze). My kids and I managed to get a half hour or so of hoops in before it got dark, and this thing is pretty solid, almost as good as playing in a gym. I was really struck by how large and substantial the metal components of this system are. Makes our old system look like a tinker toy. You definitely get what you pay for. It's pretty easy to move around, given its weight. The wheel/handle system works almost like a pallet jack, you can actually steer it. If you need a portable system, and can afford this one, get it. I'd guess you'd go through 2 or 3 systems of lesser quality before this one would wear out, and it's a lot more enjoyable to play on. 03/17/2010
Rated 4 out of 5★ by nice hoop, assembly about 7hrs,does have some shaking after a missed shot,easy to move around even with sand in it.looks great and plays nice 07/14/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by The Beast by Spaulding This basketball system was received quickly. The wheel brace was missing out of the original packaging, but customer service sent it directly to me within one week. After consideration of all the other reviews, and many where very helpful; leaning the system up against a tree to brace it and using WD40 to lubricate the pole were the most helpful tips. The instructions were plain and simple. Just one other strong man and myself put it together in about four hours. It is an excellent basketball system. I love it, the kids love, my wife loves because she has a daycare and when it is lowered even the smaller children can feel they can make a shot. 04/26/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by beast this basket ball standard is a great buy solid product and very easy to assemble I DID IT BY MY SELF IN 2 HOURS THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE VERY EASY TO FOLLOW. i NEVER HAD TO GO BACK AND LOOSEN OR CHANGE ANYTHING. BUY THIS ONE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG 11/29/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Spalding Beast installation It took about 12 man hours to put it together. The biggest problem was fitting together the two steel posts! The directions said to have two able men stand the two posts on top of each other with the bottom one on a flat board and then jiggle them together. They are both very heavy and would not jiggle together. We had to lay them down and fit then ends together and put the bottom end against a large oak tree and use a sledge hammer to pound them together. That process took about an hour and we were still about 1/4 inch short of the spot we wanted to get to. 05/04/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by The Beast Reviewed Great product. Was delivered in 3 very large and heavy boxes for only $50 shipping. No missing or damaged parts and the documentation was good. The assembly took roughly 5-6 hours spread out across 2 days. The key was to follow the setup instructions exactly step by step. Don't try to take any shortcuts because the parts are so heavy and fitting is so precise that everything has to be done in perfect order for success. The only holdup was attaching the main post which consisted of 2 heavy posts where 1 inserted into the other with an extreemly tight fit. We wasted a little time trying to lift and pound on plywood over asphalt which has a little give and didn't provide the full impact needed to join the parts. Once we moved the plywood over a solid concrete slab..bam! everything went together in a couple of tries. The hoop and backboard plays beautifully and my kids love it. 04/11/2011
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Quality Control lacking. Pole marked incorrectly, rim bent and alignment was off. Unlike the first one we purchased it took a long time to put together. Spalding Corp Customer Service has been very responsive in resolving our issues. 10/29/2010
