XL Base, 52" Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Power Lift (Elite) is rated 4.666666666666667 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable, Easy to use We have had our hoop for over two years and it looks brand new. It is very sturdy and fun. We live in a windy area, and all our neighbor's portable hoops blow over and break. Ours stays put. It is a great size for a backboard. My only complaint is that it is a bit hard to adjust the heighth, my husband is the only one strong enough. It might be because we bought it at a outlet store and not right through Lifetime. Lifetime would probably give me other parts if I asked. Great company, great service. We have lots of their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed I've been assembling this and have been impressed with the quality of the materials and the clear instructions. I really like using it. I had a minor issue with a couple of bolts, but customer service really stepped up and quickly took care of the problem. A pleasure to work with an organization that still exhibits great values. Would do business with you again, no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great System Bought it at Xmas, finally put it together at March Break (snow was the reason for the delay). Like the easily adjustable height. Since my son is 9, we will be able to increased height as he gets older.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product with poor directions We are really excited about this product and happy it is up in the driveway. It had better last a lifetime, because putting it together was a once in a lifetime experience. It wasn't actually difficult, and could have been easy- if the company had spent a little more time making sure it would be hassle free. Color coding the proper bolts and holes would have been helpful. Within one bag there might be three long bolts, one slightly smaller then the others. But the directions that use that bag of bolts might be spread out over three pages, making it hard to notice which bolt was correct until you have chosen the wrong one. Im very happy with the product but it was not one of the easier products we have put together in our 13 years of parenting.
