There are a few problems that I have faced while using this product.
Primarily, it is not sturdy. It moves about 4 inches backwards and then swings when the basketball hits the backboard. It implies that a person who has practised shooting in a sturdy system will find it a bit difficult to shoot in this one with the same accuracy as before and it is the same when a player used to shooting in this system tries to shoot in a proper court. It takes just about 30 minutes to adapt to it, but to some extent, it does ruin your skills. Whenever the ball hits the backboard, it makes an extraordinarily loud sound because of the lack of sturdiness.
Another problem that I have seen is that small kids keep pestering other players by asking them to decrease the height, even when they cannot shoot at any of the height options (my apartment had it installed so those kids have a right over it. Everyone might not face this problem).
I do not know much about the installation as the apartment management did the job.
I would conclude by saying that it is good for playing casually, but it is not satisfactory for professional games.
Thanks for your detailed feedback. Appreciate you taking out the time for this review. This model is actually only for practise and not professional usage, and thus the material used in the board is not very sturdy. It is only sturdy enough for leisure usage.
We will still work with out Product Team to consider your kind inputs
Just finished putting this together. It's a little bit fiddly doing it yourself but straight forward enough and the finished product is excellent. Rock solid and very professional feeling - my kids love it!
