Very good product for shooting hoops in the driveway. Not for dunking (not breakaway and only 12 Gallon base. Really like the portability as I plan on storing it in my garage during high winds or during most of the week when not using it or in the winter due to to HOA rules. Soft/forgiving backboard, but it's ok, getting the nothing but net shot back. Easy to put together. Got it on sale...so can't beat it for the price. I was looking for the smallest footprint and easily moveable goal as possible. Very light and not top heavy...easy to move around in the driveway and roll into the garage. The telescopic adjustment is ok, but need a step stool to make it easier and also you have to take the bolt all the way out to adjust. But the back board is light so I can slide the and hold the upper pole with one hand while I manipulate the bolt with the other.

This basketball hoop is great for young children learning the game. But if your kids are serious about b-ball, it's weak. The backboard is rather flimsy, which makes for a very friendly rim (the ball doesn't bounce off as hard as a regulation backboard, resulting in more made baskets). My boys (6 & 8) love it right now, but if they ever get serious about playing, we'll get a higher quality system in a few years. It was fairly easy to put together. I did 90% by myself and had a couple neighbor boys help with a few of the final steps. I put 150 lbs of sand in/on it and the base is stable. But the backboard is not braced well enough to the pole. It's not bad at all for the price, but I can't give it higher than 3 stars because it is "Average/Ordinary." You get what you pay for.

        Comments about Lifetime Products 44 inch Portable Basketball System:

        Read nearly all the reviews on this and others sold by toys r us. Settled on this because A) the age of my kids who are old enough to use (11.5 yrs, 10 yrs, 8 yrs, 6 yrs) this one had the Best height options. It is adjustable from 7.5ft up to full height (10ft). My 6 year old has no problem trying to shoot balls when it is raised to where the older ones need it (which I think right now is just on the lowest setting at 7.5ft). B) We won't ever need a new one as this is well made besides being able to grow with them. C) easy to assemble if you read other people's mistakes in their reviews....COUNT AND MARK OFF ALL THE PARTS ON THE MASSIVE PARTS LISTS BEFORE STARTING. There are like 3 different lists, one for each of the main components. There are just lots of little parts. AND READ ALL STEPS first and make sure you understand them before doing because another reviewer said there are irreversible steps. My husband and kids had no problem and no missing parts.
        My husband is an engineer. But even someone who is not could assemble easily. Instructions are clear, just pay attention and grab the right parts! Took about 2.5 hours on a sunny early morning outside to unpack, count parts, lay everything out by their list, read instructions, assemble and fill with water.
        It appears that you unscrew a knob thing, pull a bolt out and push the pole up to change hoop height. If you want to complain like some other reviewers did that this isn't easy enough or did not work how they thought it should (by turning the "knob").....then buy a more expensive one for several hundred more! That thing isn't a knob to crank the height as far as we could tell and it doesn't claim to be anywhere. You won't be adjusting constantly so it isn't a big deal.
        So, height adjustable options are great, well made, easy to assemble and ours was missing no parts and all lined up as it should, and we have more kids not even old enough to play yet who will get to use some day because I know it will last.
        Also I worried it would look ugly on our new driveway in front of our newly totally remodeled house that we are about to list for sale....the black makes hard to notice when looking everything from the street. Our neighbors have one that is probably 20 yrs old...the black pole still looks awesome but the light colored backboard looks nasty after all these years! But the thing is still standing! If using water to fill the base rather than sand....probably need to swap for winter...just thinking about freezing.

          This is a great value for your buck when it is put together but I had one and put it together wrong then returned it. Bought another one, had an engineer put it together but even he had to go to Home Depot to get parts. Now that it is up it is great. Just follow the directions closely, go to home depot for extra parts as it is easier then returning it. Enjoy, my Grand kids love it.

            My son wanted a basketball goal for the past year. We ordered the item on Wednesday and it was delivered on the following Monday. My son loves the goal. He is 8 years old and is able to make shots from different ranges. It was pretty easy to put together. Instead of putting the sand inside, we placed bricks on the bottom portion so that it wouldnt move. I wanted to be able to put it down when my son is away.

              The directions for this product are not easy. It is all figure's shown, no written words and it makes it complicated.
              To raise and lower the hoop you have to unscrew a round circle object, which is not what I had wanted. You have get a ladder, unscrew it and either push the pipe up or down.
              What is nice is that the base is big and in the back, so you don't have to worry about the ball rebonding off the base to much.

                My 10 year old who plays basketball for a team, really wanted a basketball hoop for herself. This one was a good price and she loves it! It is of good quality and not too difficult to put together for my 66 year old husband. It does require 2 people for part of the setup. It needs filled with water as it tipped over with the first wind (which the directions say to do, we just failed to do so). It is very well made and I really like the solid backboard instead of the see through, as she plays on outside courts that have a solid backboard. Great product with a very good price!
