    My boys love the new hoop! Our kids range in age from 9 to 15 years old. This product is versatile and adjusts to meet the needs of all their sizes.The only negative comment I can make is that the set up was a bit of a nightmare. It took the better part of the weekend. We were not expecting to have to go on a hunt for rebar at the local home improvement store which was required to add stability.

          We haven't been able to use it yet because we can't afford to have it installed. Installation cost more that the product does.

            This is a basic system at a good price. You will need two people to lift into place once bottom pole is cemented in. I dug down nearly two and half feet and dumped in post cement till it reached ground level. The added cement in the bottom pole with rebar seems to make it more stable. The backboard does make some sound when the ball is bounce off, but expected unless you purchase the upgraded tempered glass version. The front height adjustment is a breeze to operate and effortless. All in all its what I expected for the price and my kids love it.

            This hoop is not bad for beginners hoop to get. Its not the best but its better than the stupid portable ones wear they make a ton of noise. You have to always add sand bags or fill it up with water. This hoop may be heavy but its worth it for kids to improve their basketball skills. Just to shoot around in their backyard or on the driveway whereever you are great use. Nice rim w/ net. Kids shooting range will deifnatly rise and will grow skils. Looks like a college hoop with the graet features. Buy it now!! it was a great use for us. You or your kids will become the next Michael Jordan, LeBron James, or Kobe Bryant.
