Backboard is weak, hardware is great as donor parts if you get a sheet of 1/4" plexiglass elsewhere
Reviewed in the United States on December 25, 2018
I actually like this thing, but don't look at the backboard on it and think its solid. Its very flexible, and the rim is heavy and solid steel. So you could do some damage with this thing if you let kids get out of hand. I have it hanging on their closet door. The back is padded with about 1/8" foam, but I will likely go buy some weatherstripping and add to it. The rim is pretty cool, and if you broke it, you could definitely re-use it and rig up some garage type mini goal or something. The tensioned required to pop the little breakaway rim down is enough to bend the back board pretty bad. So little kids dunking on it, well, I guess we'll see. Something tells me I'll be re-painting a door down the road. The little ball it comes with is kind of heavy. In a bedroom full of stuff, it could do some damage. I've forbidden the use of it already (because I don't want broken fan globes) and restricted it to foam ball use. Still, its 4 stars. I tried to cover the negatives. Its good, and is roughly the cost of a couple of old nerf hoops.
Update - 2/419 Got this at Christmas for the kids. They broke the backboard this past weekend. Snapped it in half right above the rim. Dropped it to 2 stars, because 10yr old kids were able to destroy it. Although the hardware is still made of metal, and I'll end up going to the hardware store and having a piece of plexiglass cut, get some thick weatherstripping to line the back of that, and reinstall the hardware and rim back to that piece. Back to the original title - Backboard is not solid if thats what you're thinking.
Update 2/19/19 - Ordered a 1/4" sheet of 12x18" plexiglass from Ebay. Used the broken backboard as a template and drilled out new mounting holes. Had to use a little longer length screws on the upper mounts than what was on the original, but the original rim nuts/bolts worked fine. Just have to hit the hardware store for some weatherstripping, but by using the original setup as basically a donor (because I knew it would break), this is going to be a ridiculously awesome bedroom goal. New backboard is as solid as a piece of plywood.
