This had real potential. Just didn't turn out as well as I had thought. The balls have as much bounce as legal basketballs. This might be where some of the issuses are with this product. The clear backboard is nice however it's too thin and under the weight of the balls it ships with causes the backboard to be flimsy. The flex spring hoop is a nice touch but again the backboard is to thin causing way too much flex. You will likely need to add a washer to tighten up the spring as well. I ended up cutting the foam from the packaging glueing pieces behind it to sure much of the flex in the backboard and command stripping base of the backboard down to add stability. In short if the backboard had been twice as thick and was backed entirely in foam it would have made the rest of build of materials shine.
