Comments about Spalding 88830G NBA Tempered Glass 60 Inch U-Turn Pro In Ground Basketball System:
We have owned this system since '07. This is the second time the adjustble cranking system has broken. $135 [...] for replacement parts that you have to repair. Warranty is 5 years backboard and 1 year all other parts. This sytem can get costly if you have small children who like to adjust it frequently.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
