I looked at a lot of goals. I thought I would give this a try because of the low price. I was worried because you get what you pay for. This was different. This goal is great. It was not easy but not hard to put together. Be careful when you get it together and stand it up because it can tip over until you can get weight in the base. It is a very sturdy goal, I filled the base with water and have five sandbags on top. I am very pleased with the goal.
I'm satisfied with the product but like many others mentioned assembling the pole was hard . Make sure to put lubricant and if its stuck at halfway, it does matter how much u bang the thing it just won't go in. Other review said to lay it flat on the ground with wood chunk on each side and hammer the joint but I simply pounded with my foot above the joint. After that it went in without issue. I bang the poles for an hour when it got stuck but no luck. after this it went in with 2-3 bang.
Just purchased today for our son. Seems to be a good quality goal. The backboard is a little flimsy (thin plexiglass) but appropriate for a goal of this price. Time will tell how well in holds up. We love the easy height adjustment. Using sand in the base. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I had read the reviews of how difficult it was to assemble but totally disagree. I laid out all the parts and followed the instructions step by step. The parts aren't labeled but are easy to match to ... the instructions (poles are labeled Top, Middle, Bottom). Very pleased with this purchase.
I purchased this in lieu of the 44" Huffy system. It is very sturdy, but has too many pieces and is somewhat complicated to put together. I also had to use a hammer to force the long bolts to go through the holds. Other than these problems it is a very nice backboard, but somewhat pricy.
Bought few weeks ago. Just got it installed. All went good. One thing to caution is: Filling in the concrete inside the Pole didn;t go good. There weren't any extra information in the manual to that effect. I filled in a regular composition of concrete to a pole stading at about 55 - 60 degree angle. due to the bolts holding the parts of the system going through the pole, the concrete were stuck somewhere in the middle and I don't think the pole got filled in with concrete completely. I ... think it's about only 1/2 got filled in. So, I suggest you make concrete a bit more watery so it will glide down easily to the bottom of the pole. I gave 4 Stars due to this lack of instructions in the manual. I think it should be 4.5 starts, but it is not possible.
anti corrosion sleeve is not good and did not use, it is loose and would allow goal to move more than desired. Mounted bottom pole first assembled the rest separately and then attached as opposed to the directions version. Goal is solid and kids love it.
My son was looking for these and I was pleased to find them here and for a great price. Me being green to this type of time, I ordered a medium for my 13 year old, 114 lb son, but quickly discovered after receiving it that he would have to exchange it for a large. He's very happy with it and it completes his basketball look
Got these for my 11 yr. old nephews at Christmas. Quality is equal to the pricey name brands we usually buy (UA), at less than 1/2 the cost, and the boys love them. Will be ordering more!
I bought this system about a month ago after my boys ensured me that they'd use it. I live in the country an most days are very windy, and by the end of the day most portable goals are laid over. The instructions are pretty straight forward and simple. I uploaded some photos to help out with any bracing or leveling issues
My family loves this goal! Took a lot of cement but overall great gal! I would buy this again.
I bought this for my grandson's 14th Birthday. The old backboard had a hole in it from a baseball. This new one was the right size although the "glass" is not as sturdy. It was not easy to install. It took over an hour. Be sure to lay the old backboard down on the ground before attempting to replace it. Take note of exactly how it was connected and then copy the way it was done. Throw the confusing directions in the trash!! Only time will tell how well it is made, but my grandson was happy to be ... back shooting hoops!
We bought this backboard and rim to replace a huffy basketball system. FYUI- If you are trying to place it on another system's pole then buy the Spalding universal mounting bracket of which you can purchase in any Academy store for $19.99. It has been a month now and it is holding up well so far. It is very sturdy and not cheap looking. The longevity is what I'll have to wait and see =-)
I bought this basketball goal some time ago, but just recently received the correct parts. I had to call and email Spalding at least 4 times to obtain the right parts and the correct manual. This was a total lesson in patience to review each packet of parts and determine what was missing each time. I think I finally have everything, but have not been able to get it installed. Spalding should do a better job of identifying the parts and communicating the installation process.
So, I original bought this same basketball goal except with the water filled base. One, if you do that, make sure you fill it with water, and then, anchor it with sand bags on top or physical anchors. Mine fell over in a storm. Some people said I should put sand in the base, but I would only do water if you go that route, so it is easier to move. Also in my case, it busted for me, and that would have been a nightmare to move if it had sand in it. So, I was going to get the base replaced, and ... then, I figured out I could buy this base and anchor bold it to my driveway slab. I had wanted to do this in the first place, but I wanted to avoid the $600 price tag, and my wife wanted it "portable". My comment is the $600 price was worth it, and I should have done this in the first place for our layout. Also, I used anchor bolts with exterior Gorilla Glue. That was probably not necessary, but the holes did not drill out real clean. In retrospect, if I had used a higher-end hammer drill, the holes would have been cleaner and I could have gotten away without the glue as well.
My grandson needed a special size basketball for his school activity. 28.5 inches. I didn't know the difference but the person on the phone helped me. It was delivered in time the cost was as expected and the grandson was very happy. I'm very proud of all amazon orders I've received and would definitely recommend it to others.
WE PLAY ALOT OF BALL OUTSIDE ON THE CONCETE AND THIS BALL HAS BEEN GREAT FOR OUTSIDE BALLIN!!!!
I gave this ball to my grandsons for Christmas and they really seem to like it. They say it has a much better grip than the previous ones they have had. I would recommend this product.
The Spalding NBA Pro Grip Basketball is great for playing indoors or out and the texture feels wonderful.
My son loves his accessories. His upper arm is about 7 1/2 inches and the small/medium fits but is almost too big (it slides down a little)
Grandkids wear the sleeve when playing in their basketball leagues and say it has improved their game.
Our old basketball hoop had issues and needed to be replaced. We ordered our new one from Academy. My teenage boys (12 and 14) took the old one off and put the new one on! It was "easy" enough for them to figure things out and get the job done!
bought this to replace a broke rim, rim is fine. Net is a tiny little cheap thing.
Our son wears shorts to school year - round.....no matter what the temperature is outside. These shorts are his very favorite and we have ordered almost every color. They are plenty long and very lightweight. I line dry them - so I don't know if they keep their shape if you put them in the dryer. I feel like they snag fairly easily.
I bought these a few days ago and they're pretty comfortable. Seem to be a great pair of shorts. Nothing super special just got them for a good deal.
Got this shirt for my son for Christmas. He really likes it, as he likes Nike apparel. This particular style is difficult to find elsewhere.
I thought it was more of an exercise shirt, with the thinner 'wicking' material - but it's a normal cotton t-shirt. That being said, it's very comfortable.
I bought my children a basketball goal 2 mini basketballs and a regular street basket ball. My children love their new system together. Each of the mini basket balls were inflated but immediately one of the mini basketballs began to deflate on its own. Unfortunately my daughter wasn't so happy bc it was her favorite color pink. She still plays with the other balls though and we did not return the item. So 3 stars would be four if the ball did not deflate.
great color for girls, nice size for children, got all 10 to me quickly
The product is decent, however, I had a nightmare with the instructions--or lack thereof. It was like 3 or 4 pages were missing. In addition I was missing a bag of parts. Customer support sent another set to me, and the replacement bag was missing parts. They then sent me another "complete hardware kit", but it too was missing parts. I finally got it together, but not necessarily with the right parts. Customer support said I would get Saturday delivery on the parts, but they didn't show ... up until the following Tuesday. Some of the plastic parts were brittle and broke. I am sure Customer Service will replace them again, but this is quite ridiculous. The movement of the hoop up and down is smooth and easy, but I have NEVER seen such horrible instructions in my life. It isn't an exaggeration. They were absolutely awful. Missing parts seemed quite common for my experience. They said it is rare, but to have customer service ship me parts 2 times and to still have missing parts is ridiculous. If I were to do this again I would probably order from a competitor. As it was I went to the store and saw it there and purchased it. I gave 3 stars because the finished product is decent, but did I mention how horrific the instructions were?
I bought this a week ago and it's the best decision I've ever had . Also the Academy is the best store in the world. The people that work there are very friendly and help you with anything you need .
I love my referee jersey. No shipping fee and it arrived much earlier than I expected
I bought this as a Halloween costume. Both of my kids have borrowed it for different events.
My son loves these shorts! We bought the red and black. His only complaint is the piping on the bottom sometimes bother him, but he really doesn't care! Great shorts!
I have bought 15 pair for my 2 grandsons and they wear them every day to school and for play. They love them!
Awsome sling back pack thick light weight but strong
