We gave this;8 to my son for his 13th birthday. He loves it. He goes out to play in the cold wind, a couple of rain showers. Continually asks the rest of the family to join in one-on-one. He choos;6es it over his phone at the moment, but this will change.
I was a bit nervous of some of the negative assembly reviews, but decided to purchase anyway. It's just a few metal pipes bolted together; how bad could it really be?
The packaging was good with all parts in the box. The instructions are simple and intuitive. We took a bit over an hour to construct it as I made my son build it, with help where the parts were tricky to manage as it is over 3m tall.
This is an excellent basketball set. Easily put together, I recommend filling with sand rather than water. Around 50kg of sand should suffice, sand will not freeze like water in the winter damaging the plastic base.
very impressed with the Tarmak basketball basket for my children. good price and hours of fun
In constructing the unit, the 2 vertical tubes that should sleeve over one an other don't. the internal diameter of one of the tubes and / or the external diameter of the other have no clearance tolerances so the height cannot be adjusted. It can only (just) be assembled in its highest position. Fortunately my son is 13 and this is the recommended height. Had he been younger then the unit would not have been usable. Besides this it is a good product, sturdy and stable.
Poles don't slot together. Still trying to sort it out since christmas. Part missing too which meant an extra trip to the store. Will be phoning again tomorrow.
Very poor product.
4 very unhappy kids.
Some plastic securing parts of the backboard became brittle in sunlight and fell apart. The backboard is no longer straight . Total waste of money.
The final step to connect the adjustable pole did not work. Connection between the upright poles kept getting stuck. Tried to lubricate with oil but still did not work. Left with the hoop in 2 parts. Have to work out an option to attach the hoop and backboard to wall
It was for my 13 year old son and he is happy with it,good size and solid build .
Excellent product, really sturdy, great hit with son.
Bought for my son's 9th birthday. He loves it. Great height and will go higher! Need own spanner etc to build it.
