My Mega Slam is perfect
As a practicing mechanical engineer, I understand product durability and quality. The Mega Slam 72 excels in both areas. The support, backboard and rim are all very heavy duty and the construction details (welding, powder coating, etc.) and hardware are top notch. The ordering process and website are first rate and the product arrived both on time and in excellent condition. Unfortunately, the shipper literally dropped the pallet off the back of his truck and I thought for sure the backboard would be broken. However, due to very good packing, there was no damage from the drop. Installation was straightforward with clear instructions. I particularly appreciated the temporary hinge design used to stand-up the support and backboard. The unit is so heavy (which is good!!) it would have been very hard to assemble otherwise. Overall, I am very satisfied with the product and buyer experience. You won't go wrong with the Mega Slam.

Big Boy toy
I have no kids, this purchase was for me! Best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I have always wanted a professional level basketball system. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait. Matt was very helpful during the sales process and even helped me iron out a snag with the delivery company. Thanks again Matt, I appreciate your help and thanks for making such a great product.

Neighborhood loves it
Our HOA implored me to find and manage the installation of a new basketball system. I played college ball so I know a thing or two…After much research I settled on the Mega Slam FX 72. Not having seen the product in person made me a bit nervous but once the parts started coming out of the box I was quickly at ease. The precision and craftsmanship were impressive and the product weighed much more than I anticipated. The method of raising the pole into place with the hinge was very helpful and the instructions were very straightforward and easy to follow. We have received nothing but great feedback from the other residents and are very pleased with our purchasing decision to use Mega Slam.
