  Triple Threat Hoop
Nathan - Ohio   (Wednesday, December 30, 2015)

We bought this hoop as a Christmas gift for our 14 year old daughter. She is a top player and she loves the feel of the ball off the backboard on this hoop. Very solid rebound and it gives her the same feel as playing in a game. We highly recommend this product.

  Great Hoop!

Wherever I move I always install a basketball hoop. This is the first time I didn't get a basic box store hoop. And I am really glad I didn't. This hoop is fantastic. Belopw is my installation experience.

It took me about 4 hours to dig the 48' deep hole because I had a lot of rocks. Mixing the concrete was fine, but it did take me nineteen eighty pound bags of quickcrete. I suggest you screw the 8 nuts onto the J-Bars for the base plate before starting the concrete because that took some time. I also added and mixed the water for each bag of concrete in a wheelbarrow. THis took me about 90 minutes for install and cleanup. I know some people just dump into the hole but I think pre-mixing ensured a good cure.

Once everything finished curing, leveling the main pole was fairly easy. I raised the base plate nuts up a 1/2 turn or so before tightening down the top main post nuts. This gave me some flexibility in leveling the pole. This took 30 minutes. Once that was down adding the arms and and spring was easy and took less than 30 minutes.

The backboard is very heavy. So I rented a drywall lift for $25. One the backboard was on the lift, it took 5 minutes to insert and tighten the bolts. This approach only required one or two people since the lift carried all the weight. I just need a little help lining up the holes to insert the bolt. Once the backboard was tightened, I tightened all the other bolts.

Installing the rim was quick, and I was ready to take my first shot. Unfortunately I missed, but now I have a great hoop to practice on.

The hoop is well manufactured and I am looking forward to years of enjoyment. I highly recommend this system. Even my wife was impressed at the quality of the unit.
