Rated 5 out of 5★ by m5fromns Are you kidding me....... .....is a typical response as people enter the back yard basketball court for the first time. This hoop is awesome. It lives up to it's name 'The Beast'. Wal-Mart's $798 deal is AWESOME. Everywhere else is $999-$1499. Shipping was fast, no problems. I set it up with another guy and it took 5 hours. Not as bad as I anticipated judging from other reviews. Play is awesome, just like an arena hoop. This thing is solid. Ground hoops shake more then this thing does. People complained about the backboard shattering? Yeah right, how bout you not hang on the rim like crazy. This hoop is solid. Get it now! 04/14/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Kidsports247 Make sure you have strong adults to assemble This is very aptly named The Beast. It is fantastic once assembled and very very sturdy. The instructions to build were very clear but you need a lot of muscle power. It says 2 capable adults. We had 2 adults and 2 teenages and it took all we had at some points to man handle the item. All in all it took us about 6 hours to assemble!! 04/20/2009
Rated 5 out of 5 Great product. Shipping was faster than advertised. Assembly took roughly 4 hours. not issues at all. Play of the backboard is great. Very portable even when full of water. 04/28/2009

Rated 5 out of 5★ by kdoed quality product this basketball hoop was easy to construct with two people in a matter of hours. It is a quality hoop and the kids as well as the adults love it. I recommend spending the extra money for a quality product rather than going cheaper and replacing it in a few short years 02/20/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by smithbeast Good quality, easily movable, challenging assembly I ordered this for my son and me and it came in three big boxes delivered to my doorstep. It was a challenge to put it together in a timely fashion but I had the help of my 7 year old son and his two buddies who are 10 years old. Most of it can be assembled with one person (adult), but the two big posts that connect were really difficult. I had to get another guy (adult) to help me slam the thing together (per directions) but once that was completed the rest went on with out a hitch, thanks to my little helpers. All in all the total time to assemble was about 7 hours. But I must disclose that I did mess up the post connection and put the top part on backwards which could not be taken off once it was together because it simply would not come apart. SO, I had to take the time to measure and drill new holes for the arms that hold the back board. this set me back a couple hours. It is a high quality goal, and you pay for it but you get what ya pay for and i am generally very pleased as this will clearly last for years to come and is easily adjustable. 05/10/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by AbsoluteValue WOW! This thing is fantastic. I spent a few weeks trying to decide if I should purchase The Beast. I wasn't worried at all about people's claims that it was very difficult to assemble or that the holes didn't line up correctly. I was mostly worried about whether or not it would live up to the price. Well, it most definitely does.It is well designed, extremely solid and surprisingly easy to move around my driveway, even when full of water (making the weight about 600 lbs). Having a large, real glass backboard is wonderful. The action off the backboard is better than any other portable system I've ever played on. If you have the money, and you want a portable system, this is the one for you.As for the common negative comments that it is very difficult to assemble and the holes didn't line up. First, it is difficult to assemble. You must have at least two people to put it together. But I can honestly tell you that my 11 year old son and I did it together, in less than 3 hours. I used good old fashioned elbow grease to push, pull or twist things into place while my son would slide in the bolts or twist on the nuts. Second, there was a couple times when the holes (that a bolt was meant to go through) didn't quite line up. At these points, I had to use some serious force to push up or over on the main post. Then, my son was able to get the bolt into position. The fact that I needed to use a little muscle in order to line up the holes only makes me appreciate this system more. I believe that it means it is very precisely made and must be precisely assembled.It has been up in our driveway for about a month now and has seen many hours of play time. It's fantastic. We have also received numerous positive comments, from neighbors and passer-bys on how impressive it looks. 05/26/2014
