    A Beast of a Product, Before AND AFter Assembly

    Customer review by TexasLou

    5.0 stars by TexasLou

    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.

    Customer review by Berkle

    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.

    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.
