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:

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.

Comments about Lifetime Products 44 inch Portable Basketball System:

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.

              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.
