Great product for the price. I've looked around for an in ground system and at [$], you can't find a better system. Easy to setup. Most review complained about the instructions being difficult to read. Most instructions are difficult to read because they can't make it dummy proof. All the parts are there and are clearly defined. Pole appears to be very sturdy with the optional in ground sleeve (highly recommend it if you plan to remove it in the future).

          Comments about Lifetime 71525 54 Inch Competition Shatter Guard In Ground Basketball System:

          the product is good quality, good looking, instructions are clear. Assembly was relatively easy. The only negative is flimsy/shaky backboard, even after all nuts completely tightened. Backboard material is also too thin and reacts too sun by buldging in and out of plane

          Hoop is fine, cost more to install than the cost of the hoop,which is ridiculous. the only con really is that the backboard shakes which is merely annoying. But other than that my kids are having a blast with it.
