It features a Pro Court base--which can be filled with sand or water for weighting--and a 44-inch sturdy acrylic fusion backboard, giving you the confidence to go up strong without fear of breaking it. The backboard also offers screen-printed graphics with UV-protected inks, and fade-resistant color. The classic rim comes with a nylon net. The three-piece, 2.75-inch round telescoping pole joins the solid base and backboard, and it adjusts from 7.5 feet to 10 feet in 6-inch increments.

Lifetime's 1269 Portable Basketball System will adjust from 7.5 to 10 feet tall in six-inch increments.

Amazon.com Basketball System Buying Guide
With the high-quality construction of many portable basketball systems, turning your driveway into a basketball court can be as simple as hooking up your garden hose. But while a portable system may ultimately be your best choice, there are reasons you may want to consider an in-ground or wall-mount system before you decide.

In-Ground Systems
In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground--either via a bolt mounting kit or directly into the ground--and are generally more rigid and take up less space than portables. In-ground systems often require that you hire a professional to complete the task, but when the cement dries you'll have a hoop that can take punishing dunks with ease.

Many in-ground systems are height-adjustable, include removable post features that let you take the system down for off-season storage, and feature heavy-duty break-away rims. You'll also want to research the adjustable mechanisms on the systems, as there are several types to choose from. Some feature a counter-balance spring that lets you perform easy, one-hand adjustments while others may feature a sturdy, pneumatic system.

Wall-Mount Systems
Wall-mount systems can be mounted to the side of a house, a tall retaining wall, or a garage. Generally sturdier than portables, wall-mounts have the added advantage of optimizing your existing ground space for the court, since you won't take any space up with the base or pole. Not all systems include the necessary hardware, so make certain you add a mounting kit to your list.

Portable Systems
Portable systems require minimal installation and offer ultimate convenience. These systems generally feature a base that can be filled with sand or water to stabilize them and include wheels for portability. Although they are not as sturdy as in-ground or wall-mounted hoops, portables are simple to set up and can often be folded for convenient storage.

Backboard Considerations
Regardless of which system you choose, you'll want to brush up on Backboards 101. Most residential systems feature backboards made of acrylic, fiberglass, graphite, or various other composite materials. While clear acrylic gives the professional look and feel of glass, it is not as rigid as fiberglass or graphite. Some systems may offer steel or aluminum backboards, which are virtually vandal resistant, but don't offer the true rebounding action.

The regulation size of an NBA backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most portable hoops are 42 or 44 inches wide and 36 inches tall. In-ground systems tend to be a bit larger, with 54-inch and 60-inch widths being the most popular. While rectangular shaped backboards provide more bank shot opportunities, they are generally more expensive than the streamlined fan-shaped board.

First off, the picture that is associated with this product is not correct. After looking at plenty of these systems to purchase and reviewing the picture supplied with this item I thought this system was going to have an adjustable height mechanism which could be done by a handle on the backside of the backboard. If you look behind the backboard in the picture that's the kind of height adjustment mechanism shown BUT that's not the one you will receive. The mechanism to adjust height on the model I received is more tedious. You must remove a bolt, lower the unit to where you want and reinstall the bolt. I know, not that big of a deal but I do think the picture supplied for the product should be accurate and in this case it is not.

With all that said... for the sale price I got on it including shipping ($130) it's not a bad unit. My kids are 11, 8 and 5 and I didn't want to buy an expensive unit to find out they could care less about it. They have enjoyed it so far (1 month) and it's another sport we can all take part in so overall I'd say it was a good purchase.

This basketball goal and base by Lifetime is economical, relatively simple to put together, and pretty sturdy. The instructions are easy to follow, and no drilling or special tools are required. Because of possible liability concerns, safety is stressed. Although at a couple of steps, it states that two adults are required to complete the task, one adult with moderate strength and weight, exercising care, can safety get the job done. I put it together by myself, however if another person is available, it would certainly be advisable to follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

The hollow plastic base can be filled with either water or sand to provide the required counterweight to support the pole and rim. It will cost more, but I recommend using sand rather than water, especially if you live in a cold weather area. The instructions state that 319 pounds of sand are required. Not sure about that, but it probably takes between 3 and 4 cubic feet of sand to fill the base.

The base has a pair of small plastic wheels that help you to move or position it. Once in place, you fill up the base to about half capacity, raise the goal upright, and then fill the base to capacity. Unless you are capable of moving a football blocking sled, don't' plan on moving the system very far, after it is filled. The pole and backboard will bend back and wobble during normal play. This is to be expected, as the system will not be as rigid as a regulation goal. The plastic backboard is smaller than regulation, so your angles for bank shots are tighter, but at least it is rectangular rather than rounded at the top. If you can dunk, take it easy or you could take the hoop down. The rim is black rather than orange. The net is low quality, and does not slow the ball down after a goal.

This worked perfect for our needs-my son is 9 yrs old and will not be doing any dunking, etc yet. I didn't realize that the backboard did not come out from the pole until I realized that other people's basketball systems all had this extension pushing the backboard away from the pole and ours came right out of the pole-you would hit it as you dunked.

Still, he won't be dunking and the price was good for us-necessary to be able to afford it, so it still is good. You should just know there are differences.

We were looking for a decent basketball system my 9 year old daughter could use as well as family. I put it together by myself and took about 1 1/2 (not including filling up with sand). Instructions overall were easy to follow. Basic wrench and socket set along with Phillips head screwdriver was all that was needed. As for sand we went to home depot and bought 6 bags of 50lb play sand is worked perfect. Also will need a funnel for filling base with sand. For loading with sand is easier to have 2 people. One holding funnel and one pouring sand. When loading sand you wand base at about 60 degree angles to sand goes towards pole to fill as much as possible.
The system seem very well built and sturdy. To adjust height you do have to tilt board forward, loosen nut on back, take out bolt, raise or lower to next hole, insert bolt again and tighten nut. I have seen easier ways to adjust height. The good thing about this type of system is less chance of failure. For the price and type of backboard I believe this is one of the best deals out there. We ordered the item through seller Wayfair and it arrived in about 3 days.

After year update:
Still looks and holds up great. We love it and glad we went with this one. Still looks new and is easy to adjust.

This was a gift for my daughter, who enjoys shooting hoops but is not a serious player. It wasn't too difficult to put together, with the instructions being pretty clear. Just a couple of small parts weren't clearly pictured in the instructions so at first I thought they were missing but everything was there. I think it took me less than an hour to put together. But filling up the base with sand was quite a chore. It would be easy enough to fill with water, but I plan to leave this outside during the cold months so it was highly suggested that I use sand instead of water which would freeze and wreck the base. The backboard is sturdy and solid. This is my first portable basketball goal, so I was curious about how sturdy it would be -- but it doesn't wobble or move at all when you slam the ball into it so I'm quite pleased with it.
