Amazon.com Basketball System Buying Guide
With the high-quality construction of many portable basketball systems, turning your driveway into a basketball court can be as simple as hooking up your garden hose. But while a portable system may ultimately be your best choice, there are reasons you may want to consider an in-ground or wall-mount system before you decide.

In-Ground Systems
In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground--either via a bolt mounting kit or directly into the ground--and are generally more rigid and take up less space than portables. In-ground systems often require that you hire a professional to complete the task, but when the cement dries you'll have a hoop that can take punishing dunks with ease.

Many in-ground systems are height-adjustable, include removable post features that let you take the system down for off-season storage, and feature heavy-duty break-away rims. You'll also want to research the adjustable mechanisms on the systems, as there are several types to choose from. Some feature a counter-balance spring that lets you perform easy, one-hand adjustments while others may feature a sturdy, pneumatic system.

Wall-Mount Systems
Wall-mount systems can be mounted to the side of a house, a tall retaining wall, or a garage. Generally sturdier than portables, wall-mounts have the added advantage of optimizing your existing ground space for the court, since you won't take any space up with the base or pole. Not all systems include the necessary hardware, so make certain you add a mounting kit to your list.

Portable Systems
Portable systems require minimal installation and offer ultimate convenience. These systems generally feature a base that can be filled with sand or water to stabilize them and include wheels for portability. Although they are not as sturdy as in-ground or wall-mounted hoops, portables are simple to set up and can often be folded for convenient storage.

Backboard Considerations
Regardless of which system you choose, you'll want to brush up on Backboards 101. Most residential systems feature backboards made of acrylic, fiberglass, graphite, or various other composite materials. While clear acrylic gives the professional look and feel of glass, it is not as rigid as fiberglass or graphite. Some systems may offer steel or aluminum backboards, which are virtually vandal resistant, but don't offer the true rebounding action.

The regulation size of an NBA backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most portable hoops are 42 or 44 inches wide and 36 inches tall. In-ground systems tend to be a bit larger, with 54-inch and 60-inch widths being the most popular. While rectangular shaped backboards provide more bank shot opportunities, they are generally more expensive than the streamlined fan-shaped board.

The product may be good, but the communication on availability and shipping was terrible. I was told via e-mail and on-line that it would ship and be delivered on a certain date. When it did not arrive as promised, I e-mailed the company and found out that it would not ship for another 2 weeks and would not have it for almost 3 weeks. I canceled the order and ordered the same product for another on-line source. I paid a little more, but at least I am getting the product. From Competitive Edge: Delivery times are provided based on past shipping experience, but never guaranteed. This product ships directly from Lifetime Products, the manufacturer. If they have any production issues, like in the case of this order, we are beholden to the dates they provide us. We also offer backorder discounts whenever there is a delay while we wait for Lifetime to complete production.

Debbie
Great product, great price. Well built and lots of fun. Company honored their advertised "beat on-line price by $10" plus no tax or shipping. Couldn't have done better.

BB Jones
This is my second one of these. It last two years and then the base metal pole will rust as will the basketball hoop. The rust will drip into your pool and mar the pool floor surface. Its a good product, but protect it from rust with whatever creative way you can!

NJMOM
We just got this pool basketball set last week, and so far, my kids haven't stopped playing with it. I have four kids, aged from 12 to 21 -- 3 girls, 1 boy, they all love it. It is taking some really hard hits (particularly from my son, of course) and the backboard is taking it fine. It is a very good looking set, we have a really beautiful pool with a waterfall, and my husband was concerned that this would ruin the look of our pool -- but even he commented yesterday that the basketball set looks really good out there. I am very glad I went for this one with the clear backboard. Also, I have to commend Competitive Edge, they honored their price guarantee, when I found a lower price on-line, they beat it by $10. as their guarantee states. Also, this item was on backorder when I ordered it, and I was concerned that the backorder date would keep getting pushed back (as so many other companies do), but it came in exactly on time, and was shipped promptly after that. My only slight negative was that I found assembly a bit difficult (I did it myself) but I was still able to assemble in a few hours. (Not bad for a girl). Also after reading some other reviews I am concerned about the rust issue -- but I intend to keep an eye on it and touch up any rust spots. with paint or clear coat. But so far, no problems. Overall, LOVE IT! BUY IT!!! (Updated on 6/23/2013.)

Poolmom
This pool basketball hoop is sturdy, solid and very good quality materials. Have two boys, ages 11 and 16. They love it! Hoop is full-size and higher off the ground than previous hoop we had. Great value for the price.(FYI- basketball not included.)

JLong
We haven't used the basketball goal by the pool at the time of this review, but have it in the driveway. Great. Instructions were a little hard to understand but product itself is going to be just what we were looking for in a pool side goal that doubles as regular basketball goal.

ABC
Very nice product and showed up in a reasonable timeframe to the house. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes basketball. Price was best on the net as well.

CEP Customer
This hoop seems very well made. It was a bit complicated to assemble,and we have only had it up for a week,but so far we are happy. It is a serious pool,basketball hoop that seems will stand the test of time. My kids love it.

Allow a couple of hours to set it up, but once its complete, it is awesome. My son (11 years old) and his friends love it.

ginpal
Very sturdy and looks professional

Libster
I have 3 sons 15, 16 and 18, all are avid BB players. They love this. Very sturdy and competitive for them. Their MANY friends enjoy it too!

Will
Great Pool side Basketball goal. Seems to be very sturdy and looks great. The kids are loving it.

EJH
Strong, easy to assemble, safe. Will last a couple of seasons in saltwater coastal humid outdoor environment before too much rust sets in. So far have bought three over the years.

MDuncan
This basketball net has been great so far. My 13 year old son could not wait for me to assemble, so he did most of it himself. I helped with the heavy stuff but he did most of it. the product looks great and seems to be very safe, but I have only had it a week. Very happy.

RAM
Very sturdy product but hardware flaws. I used this hoop for one (5 months) season and the hardware rusted so severe that it left rust stains on my concrete and the hardware needs replaced. I took the unit in for the winter so it was only exposed to the summer weather. This hoop would have easily been a 5 star and highly recommended if they used stainless steel hardware. The rods for the wheels are completely rusted and for the most part unusable. The bolts used to hold the hoop and braces are all rusted and need replaced. I understand there will be maintenance to the steel components like the post but to not use stainless steel for the hardware is inexcusable. Come on Lifetime, FIX IT!!!

Beent
We are having a great time playing basketball with this pool side hoop. It is a very attractive addition to our pool

CEP Customer
My kids, their friends as well as myself have really enjoyed this product. It is very sturdy and the wheels make it fairly easy to move around. The colors and backboard help make it look great next to the pool.

bobby
great product with a great price

bobg
If you are looking for a real basketball setup this is the best product for the price.

Jung
This is a great hoop! It has become the attraction for our pool area. Its sturdy and holds its ground even when the big guys have their dunk contest. Its also easy to transport when you tip it on its wheels. Would buy it again!

JJohnson
The hoop is perfect, my Grandson loves it The service from Competitive Edge was great. We received the item in just a few days. We are very happy and would purchase again from this company.

EHIV
Very sturdy and a very good value. Easily assembled. Good materials for a long life.

Jamie
I received the goal two weeks ago. Easy to assemble for this mid fortes guy. I do not believe the goal would have a long lifetime with rough play but should last several years without abuse. Looks are very nice. I would not pay anymore than $150 for the 1306 model.

vsmith
My basketball goal arrived quickly. It took a couple of hours to set up, but well worth the time. the components are high quality and with proper care and winter storage it should last for many years. Good quality.

GHETTOKOP
INITIALLY WHEN COMPARED ONLINE I THOUGHT THIS SITE WAS SELLING REFURBISHED OR PREVIOUSLY OPENED ITEMS BECAUSE OF THEIR LOW PRICES. I GAVE IT A SHOT AND I WAS IMPRESSED. THEY UNDERSOLD MY LOCAL STORE EVEN AFTER SHIPPING, AND THE ITEM WAS THE EXACT SAME ONE STILL IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKAGE. I do not KNOW HOW THEY DO IT, BUT I ALONG WITH MY KIDS LOVE THE COURT. GOT A MUCH BETTER COURT FOR LESS THAN I WOULD HAVE PAID FOR THE CHEAPER ONES. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SITE AND ITEM.

Anna
I have this over a month and so far it looks great. The kids are having the best time using it. I hope it doesn't rust like one of the other reviewers said. I will keep you posted!

customer
very fast delivery! great product!

Utahcamper
I recommend this basketball hoop. It looks as nice as the picture shows it. I like the see through transparent board. It looks very nice next to the pool.

Nate
I have been very happy with this product. It is very sturdy and I would recommend it to anyone. Do remember to remove the protective film from the backboard. It took me a month to notice that there was a film. Good luck and have fun.
