Usage: The hoop itself is great looking and does not rattle or shake at all when shots hit the backboard. The base can be filled with sand or water. I live in a temperate climate and have to move every few years. That being the case I opted for water since it can be easily emptied. Be aware if you live in an area with common freezing temperatures, water may expand and possibly could crack the base. Please note that the sand is not included. Raising and lowering the hoop was able to be accomplished by my 9 year old and is pivoted which does not require lots of strength to accomplish. One does not have to bear the weight to move the hoop up or down. Additionally the height adjustment is done by gripping the two handles in the middle of the pole and squeezing the "triggers" then you can easily raise or lower the hoop.
Wheels are no the bottom of the base but are really not easy to engage. The backboard comes with a nice protective film over it and looks great once removed.
Market Research: I did look at other hoops and they often had inferior components such as lackluster smaller backboards, insufficient bases, and difficult height adjustment methods. This is a shatter proof backboard, with a spring system on the rim. From a safety standpoint the materials and design make this a step above other hoops I went and looked at. I have no regrets on this purchase and my kids love it.
Now the major issue during assembly is that this thing is really big, awkward and VERY heavy (as you would expect). The instructions clearly say 2 people for assembly. My wife helped me a couple times to hold stuff and without her it would not only be tough but you would probably end up with it on your head.
Overall it took me 3 hours from start to finish. I only ended up with 2 extra screws for placing the plastic guard on the bottom of the backboard. The package says 10 and there are 10 included but I could only see where I needed 8 and during the install it asks for only 8.
I haven't used it yet as it is a surprise for my son's 7th birthday, but it looks straight and it seems very robust. I'm sure it doesn't have the feel of a $1K one, but for kids, it is more than enough. Very legit. Moving it once it is full with water is near impossible though. It is VERY heavy. I'm glad I didn't fill it with sand before testing that. Wow.
We'll see how it holds up but it went together very well with everything exactly as the instructions stated and everything seems perfect built so I'm hopeful it will last. Now if it only fit in my garage...
Be aware that each part of the directions corresponds to a sealed plastic bag of parts, kinda like a lego instruction guide. This was good. Also be aware there are no extra parts, washers, screws or nuts. So be careful not to lose any.
As others have said, it takes two people to set this up, I did it with my wife who is not mechanically inclined.
In the instruction manual it only states to use 375 pounds of sand, but on the base itself it says you can use water. I went the water route and it is more then adequate for the weight of the basketball as well as for dunking.
Overall it is a solid hoop that I am sure we will get 5+ years of great use. Just displeased with how it was shipped, and that it really required two sets of ratchets.
I am glad I bought it off of Amazon because they were able to refund me some money for the damages. To bad they couldn't just ship me a new backboard to replace the damaged one.
The assembly was not that bad. All the parts were there. The instructions were not that descriptive at all. You had to figure out what was going on just by looking at the picture. That was difficult. None were missing. But you need a drill, a ranch, screw driver and more. The backboard came with a lot of scratches. By a lot, the scratches were everywhere for some reason. But when I play, it does not affect the hoop.
Now, the hoop
The hoop itself is great. The backboard only shakes more when it is at 7.5 feet. When it is at 10 feet, it is stable. The bad thing is that when I shoot the ball and bounces off the rim, it always makes a sound. I guess that is how it is supposed to be because of the springs, but overall, the hoop is great. Especially for the price. This is worth 4 stars
