Product Description
Designed to sit in a driveway, backyard, or any other open space, the Spalding 60-inch portable basketball system will turn your paved landscape into a jump-shooting haven. The system starts with a 60-inch acrylic backboard with a heavy-duty steel frame. The board offers the same look and feel as pro-style glass backboards, helping you shoot layups and bank shots with confidence. The Arena Slam breakaway rim, meanwhile, holds up well against the force of emphatic dunks--a must for modern hoops. The rim includes an institutional-style wrap with steel support braces, along with an ultra-smooth spring action that's designed to flex when pressure is applied, helping relieve stress from the backboard during game play. And hops-challenged players will love the hoop's Screw Jack lift system, which lets you adjust the height from 7.5 to 10 feet in infinite increments. When the hoop is at your preferred height, the handle removes to prevent tampering or accidental injuries. Other features include a two-wheel, 40-gallon base that fills with sand or water for maximum stability and safety; a front cover that acts as a built-in rebounder during play; a 16-inch board offset; and a three-piece, 3.5-inch-diameter round pole set at a 20-degree angle from the base.

Owner Comments & Criticism
My biggest fear in buying this hoop for my son was that I'd teach him a few new bad words if he helped me assemble it. I am NOT "handy" and have "learned" over the years that instruction manual authors and illustrators undergo special training so they can convey ambiguous and deceptive directions. But the assembly was such a pleasant surprise and the end product so awesome, I had to post a review (my first ever, for anything). The end product is attractive and solid. We live in the Midwest and I was afraid the large backboard would act like a sail on windy days. Being able to lower the backboard when not in use is a big plus and it's very easy to do. We filled the tank with water and, as per the directions, 2 gallons of antifreeze since we live in a cold climate. I believe that will work fine, but the day after final assembly the weather forecast called for 40-50 mph gusts. So being a bit of a ninny, I put an extra 150lbs of ballast (bags of rock salt) on top of the tank. The hoop is solid as a rock both in the wind and during play. Assembly was pretty painless and took about 5 hours altogether. Contrary to what I've come to expect from instruction manuals, this one was pretty decent. A couple of assembly tips: 1. Tools needed. I can't imagine trying to assemble this without a socket wrench set. Also, most of the time during assembly the pole will rest on sawhorses - make sure they are tall enough before you start (at least 38" high). You'll need that much clearance when the backboard is attached. 2. The instructions advise to check that bolts fit smoothly thru their intended holes in case dried paint around the hole opening impedes that. Good advice. I encountered that issue in step A 11 when attaching the "elevator tubes".Read more ›
