Cons: Can't move once filled unless it's on a very hard surface because wheels are only 3.5 inches in diameter) and the approx 350 lb system creates a large pressure on those small wheels (300 lbs of water) and it digs into grass. The fill cap has no rubber seal, so water may leak when it is tilted, moved, or the base stepped on. One important problem with the instructions (read below) will only permit maximum height of 9.5 feet instead of 10 feet.
Instruction problems: This is relative to instructions dated 07/07 (ID M7221242). Page 21 shows bracket 27 and 34 attaching to the two lower holes and instead should be attached to the two higher holes. Using the two higher holes allows the 10 foot height to latch. Another minor problem is that page 24 shows lower elevator tube positioned backwards (that middle hole should be closer to the pole as it is correctly shown on pages 23 and 25). I notified Spalding of these two illustration problems.
i use it almost every day and since i live on a culdesac i have to utilize the portability aspect every time.
my one and only complaint? the directions are horrible. the pictures/figures contradict each other and due to that it took me 3 times as long to assemble it. there was no way for me to tell until it was almost done which drove me crazy.
however, i'd rather have that be the problem than anything else.
that being said, i highly recommend this product. just watch out during the assembly!
Update: The durable polycarbonate backboard lasted about two years before it split or should I say opened a hole as big as the basketball.
With that said, now the product. Seems very well built and the best part is the "Powerglide" height adjustment feature. Very easy to move up and down as desired and quickly when needed. The wheels are a negative because they are rather small and seem to be disproportionate in size to the system. But I will not knock it because I do not really intend to move the system while filled. It does.move perfectly when the base is empty. The rim is heavy and durable and the net is nice. The polycarbonate backboard is an upgrade to an acrylic one and bounces decently. Just remember you are paying less than $200 for this system and I feel it is definitely a 5 star product for the price.
Update: 4/27/2016 - since this review we moved and I transported it to the new location in 1 piece. It retained its shape and stability and has NOT rusted in any place like I have seen from a previous one I owned. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. BUT remember - you may be better off getting it at your local sports stores - as vendors have a tendency to resell items that have been returned and they often don't check for all the parts.
