Fun, but you get what you pay for with this hoop
on September 1, 2014
I bought this hoop as it seemed like a pretty cheap price. Bottom line, it is not a bargain - the price is an accurate representation of the quality. That being said, I've had this hoop for over a year and it's still standing.
Assembly was challenging as the instructions were poor. It took several hours over 2 days to put together.
I give this 3 stars because my kids really like this and use it constantly. The game is a set of 2 side by side hoops with a mesh ball catch. It has an electronic scoreboard and a mat extension that can detect where you are standing to give 2 or 3 points depending on distance away from the hoop. There are multiple versions of scored games that you can choose to play between (solo or double).
The electronic mechanism for tracking shots made stopped working after about 6 months. The bolts and screws come off regularly requiring refastening about once a week.
Overall, I recommend this hoop recognizing that it will be a lot of fun for the period of time that it holds up, but that it is not going to hold up long-term. If you want something sturdier for the long term, I imagine you would be better off with a different product that is likely a higher price.
