Comments about Spalding 79564 NBA Acrylic 54" Arena Slam Basketball Backboard and Rim Combo:
The other reviews kind of scared me off but I did a little more research and found out this COMBO was in fact a nice system. The price was right and the shipping was fast. I can see how some would receive a broken backboard if the UPS guys were rough on it. The packaging is very thin (factory box). I blame Spalding for that but luckily mine came in great condition. The rim is very nice and the backboard is true. I've had it a couple months and couldn't be happier. I did scratch it a little while installing so be careful as the "plexi glass" will scratch easy. I replaced an old backboard from the early 90's that was mounted on a 4 in square pole. I also got the Spalding U Turn bracket. It works great and was fairly easy to install. Overall I really like the Combo and would buy again if it came down to it. Hope this helps someone out there on the fence after reading the bad reviews.
