71525 basketball system Review by baller
Stars
I really like this system. Took a total time of about 4 hours to setup. Had some difficulty figuring out directions, but figured them out. As soon as I had it setup, the family came out to play and played until after dark. Good choice and good product (Posted on 12/30/2014)
best price on the web! Review by tcpuccio1
Stars
Cant beat it for the price. I wanted to get a in ground system. I live is a VERY windy area and all the water/sand filled systems blow over in the wind so this was a no brainier. The instructions were pretty clear Only had one glitch putting ti together The handle for the height adjustment the directions do not mention which way is up or down. It took me longer to dig the hold in my rock ridden front yard then it did to build the rest of the the unit. It took me about an hour and a half to put the thing together. The unit is pretty sturdy even throwing the basket ball directly at the back board it doesn't have much movement at all. My 7 year old is going to get plenty of use out of it. As for Competitive edge good web store to buy from. the unit was on backorder when I bought it the manufacture direct shipped it to me Via FedEx and it shipped ahead of schedule. The box arrived in great shape which is more then I could say if it were shipped via UPS. (Posted on 12/30/2014)

Bought basketball system for a Christmas present. Product shipped ahead of schedule. Worth the price. Instructions clear and precise. Looking forward to some warmer weather to enjoy fully. (Posted on 12/30/2014)
71525 Basketball System Review by Merrick
Stars
I shopped everywhere for the best basketball system I could afford with the largest backboard available, and the 71525 was my choice. The quality of the 71525 is pleasantly amazing, but understand, its assembly and installation is a project. The instructions can be confusing with parts sometimes mislabeled, and in my case, two spacers missing (a trip to the hardware store fixed that problem). It took 9, sixty pound bags of concrete to fill that 18" X 24" hole, and winter weather delayed everything. Do yourself a favor and buy the 0023 ground sleeve because the system will install much quicker and easier. It takes patience and a bit of time to assemble everything properly. In the end your diligence and hard work will be duly rewarded. (Updated on 1/12/2013.) (Posted on 12/30/2014)
Solid Goal Unit Review by Trey
Stars
I went together relatively easy - directions indicated putting the wrong length bolt in one spot and had to made a trip to the hardware store to solve this. I read the product description as a 1" thick backboard, but the frame is 1" thick, the Plexiglas is the typical 1/8" thick. It is super easy to adjust and seems like it will last for many years (but we only have had it up for 1 week). I assembled and installed by myself and wasn't too bad. I did not use the inground sleeve. Shipping was fast and arrived undamaged with no issues. All-in-all ... it was a good purchase and good transaction with Competitive Edge - I will continue shopping with them. (Posted on 12/30/2014)

Great Basketball Net Review by Sue
Stars
My son received as a gift for his great report card. The directions to put together where sparse, but if you read and reread them you will not have a problem putting together. Digging the hole was the most time consuming. The product is of good quality, and hopefully will last through the winter, as where we live in Buffalo it gets super windy and snowy as we are in the snow belt area. I have neighbors coming over and looking to purchase basketball nets for their kids. I have recommended them to shop at Dicks, Target, Walmart, and anywhere else you can purchase, then go through Competitive Edges web site and get the best deal. My son and his buddies play basketball daily. The kids range in age from 9 years old to 14 years old. I also would like to comment on Competitive Edges customer service. I had contacted them by phone, as I wanted to get advice on the better systems they were awesome ... .. (Posted on 12/30/2014)
Not too sure yet Review by Young kids
Stars
Competitive Edge is great- Lifetime, not so sure. Instructions are not the best and the "Actual size" of the parts are off. My main problem is the 2 mounting holes drilled into the backboard are about 2" off. Still working with Lifetime to settle issue. I am at a stand still until I hear back. I did order the ground sleeve and it seems like it will make installation much easier. (Posted on 12/30/2014)
Lifetime 71525 Basketball Backboard System Review by Huff
Stars
Great price and fast shipping, but very complex. Directions were hard to follow and a piece of hardware was missing. After I finally assembled all the pieces, the kids love it ... .. (Posted on 12/30/2014)
Good price, questionable quality Review by Mal
Stars
Great basketball hoop, easy assembly if you follow the directions. Got the entire hoop concreted in the ground, put together, had 11 kids playing basketball at one time. Only had the hoop up for 4 days when the shatterproof backboard gave loose on one side. Had to run to the hardware store to by glue to glue to backboard back to the metal. Then duck tape the backboard. Not sure how this happened, or why, but the product is nice just wish it would have lasted a little bit longer before having to repair something. Kids have really enjoyed it for the 4 days it has been up. (Posted on 12/30/2014)
