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.

    The assembly was very difficult. It took me 4 evenings to finish it. To make things worse, the last step had a bold that was not enough long enough. I had to get one from Home depot to finish the awful project.

            being short i thought it was going a very hard task, i asked my teen nephew to give me a hand and it was very simple to ensemble, that is if you have some logistical skills and good common sense because the instructions came in German and i think Chinese! that made the task longer but not impossible. I filled the base with water and it has been very steady.

            Comments about Lifetime Products 44 inch Portable Basketball System:

            My sons wanted a Basketball Hoop so we looked for a good price. This one happened to be a great price and online it was even cheaper. ToysRUs saleswoman in Staten Island was wonderful and kind enough to help us look it up online and told us that they would honor the Online Price. Instructions were in all different languages and only pictures. With Lousy instructions and being handy I decided to wing it but realized that the top post needed to go through the middle post but only after assembling the backBoard. Small but annoying mistake but after thinking about the price it was worth it. The box describes being able to adjust with a broomstick which is a lie due to the threaded nob and bolt that needs to be removed and re-installed after adjusting. Overall it is adjustable with some effort and very affordable. A suggestion would be to include better written instructions but only if it would not affect the price.

            We bought a portable basketball net. We thought the price was awesome and the customer service was magnificent. I am the one in the family who puts all the new items we buy together and fixes anything that's broken. This basketball net was atrocious! It was took the longest time to set up out of everything we have ever bought. I was frustrated and annoyed. However, once it was up it was nice to create memories with my loved ones.

                  Perfect height for a 7 yr old and up. Very hard to assemble. Needed to buy other screws the long ones are not really long enough to get it together properly with any room to tighten the nuts. Otherwise once done very nice.

                  I was hesitant to buy this at first. I am really glad I did. My 14 year old son wanted one for his birthday. He loves it. It is very sturdy and easy to raise up or down. It's simple and the price is awesome. Very happy with the purchase.
