Love this basketball goal We bought it as a replacement for a 4-5 year old Lifetime goal that was weathered a little smaller. After looking at all of the options costs decided to give this one a go based on reviews. solid play. Even though its portable its heavy easiest to move with 2 people once the base is filled. We used water BaseGel BaseGel Basketball Goal Portable Bases Polymer 16-Ounce which is working great. Assembly took a couple of hours. Having a second set of hands for some of the steps makes life significantly easier.
