This is a nice hoop for the money. The package had no damage when it arrived but my system was missing the trigger for the adjustable backboard. Lifetime customer service was great and quickly sent me the missing part. The system seems to be good quality but after assembly I noticed that my backboard frame was warped a bit. I was not about to take the system apart to replace the backboard. The directions are not the greatest but it went together pretty easily with the help of my 13 year old son. The basketball hoop looks great in the driveway and is pretty sturdy. One thing to be aware of is,if you are looking for a backboard with no movement at all you will have to spend a lot more money and buy one with a glass backboard.

So excited to get this hoop installed. Fun family project with my boys. 3 hours to build it. 1 hour digging (hard dirt). 1 hour cement pour and shape. Product seems like good quality. Everything works and family is having lots of fun.

A great product. Easily installed because of precise instructions. The position mechanism works perfectly. I needed a steady and beautiful looking goal. This goal served that purpose at an affordable price. Enjoy seeing it in our yard

This in-ground basketball system was a perfect addition to the sports activities night we do every week for the Kids in the neighborhood. I put it together by myself. My wife, who has absolutely no arm strength, helped me with the final step attaching the backboard to the pole. Easy! Then we dropped it right on to the cemented post. I have already started playing with it myself and am wondering why I did not buy two! Thanks for beating the competitions prices and for great customer care, fast shipping, etc. Be perfect, stay perfect!

Ordered this for my grand kids after much research. The Grand kids were waiting with their basketballs in hand when Grandma and I arrived to start the setup. Some of the instructions were a little confusing but it took about 12 hours total. The grand kids were not real happy when they found out the cement had to set for a week. As it turned out the "shatterproof" backboard had a scratch. Our concern was that once a basketball hit it - the scratch would continue from one side to the other. Called customer service on Monday and told them-also told them we had grand kids that were sleeping with their basketballs waiting for the court to be up and running by the following Saturday. There was no hesitation-the new backboard was sent out that day (Monday) and arrived on Wednesday. Wonderful customer service! The Grand kids are having a ball and we feel the system is safe and will bring much joy for several years! Highly recommend!

Outstanding price and very fast delivery. Quality appears to be very good and the operation of the adjustable height is very easy. Instructions were a bit confusing in a few places and backboard edging did not fit quite right. Overall a great value at a super competitive price!

I had to look twice at the price compared to the sporting goods stores in my area. This was an exceptional deal and the delivery was fast. I will shop this site again. I just wish they dug the hole for the pole as well.

This is a very nice basketball system and you cannot beat competitive edge pricing and super fast shipping. The instructions were wrong in two areas but if I can do the assembly anyone can. My sons love it !!!!!

Why is this goal so much cheaper than anywhere else on the web? Is the goal actually in the box. These were some of my questions when I saw the price cut compared to everywhere else I looked. I took about a month to research goals on the internet. I wanted to buy a quality goal, but I did not want to pay a lot and I would not be slamming on it (even though I can if I need to with this one). This goal is by far the best on the market for home use. It was easy to install (with the purchase of the ground sleeve for another $30) and I was able to do it while watching my 2 year old in the front yard. I am very weak and I am not usually mechanically inclined, but this only took me 2 days (1 day for the concrete, 1 day to install the goal). I did it by myself! We have had it a few months and I am very happy with this purchase. From Competitive Edge Products: the ground sleeve mentioned here is model 0023, which can be found by searching that model number in our search field at the top left of the product page.

A great hoop system @ a great price. I'm a contractor and I found the instructions vague, feel sorry for average homeowner, some washers were missing also. My son loves it.

nice goal for the price, kids love it! looks good, easy to put together if you follow instructions, most of it by myself and some help from my 16 year old at the end. I would highly recommend the in ground sleeve-I installed one about 6 years ago in concrete, during a high wind storm this spring my old lifetime goal was bent over, I was able to get the pole out of the sleeve with the help of a bobcat, ordered this new one and put it right back in the same sleeve in the ground instead of having to dig out concrete and start over. also I would use anti seize on the pole in the sleeve so it does not rust together and make sure the cap stays on top of the pole or it will fill up with rain and rust from the inside out.

I was hunting for a basketball goal to replace a broken one for my son when I ran across this site. This goal was on sale and over $100 less than other stores. It seems to be a quality goal. It was very easy to assemble. You have to wait three days for concrete to dry, but that is the same for most goals. The pole and backboard brackets are much stronger than the goal I was replacing. I am expecting many years out of this goal.

Best price anywhere for this basketball system. Fast shipping. Saved over $130 from big name sports store locally

your site came to me from someone who purchased what I wanted they were extremely satisfied with your service and products.

We were not disappointed at all with the quality and easy of putting together and installing this basketball goal. It is a very good product.

Excellent value! A considerable amount of savings over in store prices. Bonus- FREE shipping. The whole family is having a great time with it. After the in-ground cement installation, it took my husband about 2 hours to finish installation.

Everything went together according to the instructions. Allow for pretty much a whole afternoon to assemble the backboard and lift system. I cemented the base pole as instructed and waited a few days to put up the rest according to the manual. Everything works properly and overall this is a very nice outfit. The only complaint I have is that the backboard/frame was warped. If I had not already assembled most of it I probably would have sent it back. Having said that, it was not warped enough for me to go to all that hassle. I would give 5 stars if not for the backboard problem.
