portable basketball system
Basketball backboard was scratched on the back side in transit. it needed to be packed better, box was also torn in transit. After correspondence with the company, Competitive Edge, they went out of their way to "make it right with the customer", I am very satisfied with them even though it was totally Fed Ex's fault, they took the time to satisfy me and I would strongly recommend buying from them. It is not that often anymore to see that type and level of customer satisfaction. Thank you. (Updated on 8/7/2011.) - MICK - Binghamton, NY

This portable system is ample
This system looks great when completed per instruction manual. I put mine together in about 5 hours. The manual recommends an extra person to help. I did not have that luxury; an I improvised. Gotta take your time with this. You'll be glad you did when its done. I look forward to many years of use with this. - keith42 - Chatham , VA
