We love this hoop. Spent a lot of time looking and comparing. This was easy to assemble with two people and had great directions and all parts included (always a plus). It looks amazing, definitely the best in the neighborhood and there are a ton! Durable, easy to raise and lower and a hit with the kids!!! Great product, we are thrilled! Price can't be beat!

Wobbly. Entire unit wiggles with each shot. No amount of water or sand or level surface works to stabilize it. Also, plastic shield at base does not fit properly. Holes for screws do not line up. After calling and getting a replacement shipped, it still doesn't fit. I'd spend a bit more for a more solid unit if you have teenagers.

Comments about Spalding 50 inch Acrylic Portable System:

My son is 15 and was ready to upgrade from his old board....he can't believe how much better he can hit his shots because of its' stability. We almost went with the 44" back board and we're glad we opted to upgrade to the 50". The newer base is a great improvement over the old design and the bounce-back is a nice bonus. Son is 6'1" and had a hard time adjusting the height to 10 ft by himself---it's a two man job to hold it up and place the pin in---but he won't need to adjust the height very often if at all. Our neighbor has the Lifetime board and I think the Spaulding is better quality. Husband is a mechanic had has all the tools and brains but it will be a project for most.....took them about 3 hrs. ----but no real complaints from them.

Comments about Spalding 50 inch Acrylic Portable System:

Bought this as a 2010 Christmas gift for my 10 yr old son. He loves basketball, and shoots hoops on a daily basis.

Assembly of this unit took a few hours, but overall I think the directions were clearly written.

Cons: It is rather difficult to move from place to place. While trying to move, the base cracked. Searced the Spalding (Huffy) website, but a replacement is not offered. This would be an added plus; otherwise, I would have to replace the entire unit.

    REALLY time consuming to put together but my kids love it! Hope you're really good with tools- also make SURE you have a good socket set- it took assembly from 4 hours ( from what I read on previous reviews before purchase) to only 2 1/2 for us!!!

    Comments about Spalding 50 inch Acrylic Portable System:

    This is a nice hoop for the price. Quality is good. Stability is good. However, it is not easy to assemble. Follow instructions closely. They are good instructions. Difficult to move once you have water in it. This system could really benefit from a drain cork.
