Two words...PROFESSIONAL GRADE!
I’ve been in need of a new goal for several months because our old one was destroyed by the Colorado weather. After several weeks of research I purchased the MEGASLAM 54. I would have preferred the 60” goal instead but it was out of stock. I’m glad I didn’t wait because the 54” is a great size and is more than enough for my teenage boys. From the time I ordered the goal I have been impressed with the company. I ordered the goal on the evening of 4/21 and it was delivered by UPS freight (18-wheeler) the morning of 4/29 (less than 8 days later halfway across the country). The delivery package is big and heavy (600 lbs) and comes on 1pallet. Fortunately my boys are strong and we have a moving dolly so we were able to break the pallet down at the curb and get it into the driveway fairly easily. Digging the hole and pouring the concrete were the hardest part but we followed the instructions and online videos provided by Megaslam and everything went smoothly. The project called for 20-22 80lb bags of concrete. I bought 23 just in case and used 22.5...so buy a little extra just in case. After the concrete set for 4 days, assembly of the goal was easy...but still heavy. Make sure you follow the instructions and watch the assembly videos on the Megaslam website and DO NOT TIGHTEN the bolts until instructed to do so. My next door neighbor and I used the “ladder method” suggested on the video to mount the backboard and it was a piece of cake. Total time to assemble the goal was less than 2 hours. The first thing I noticed when assembling the goal was the high quality. The 5 gauge steel used in the 1-piece pole told me I had made the right decision. All the welds are high quality, the holes all lined up, the pole ends are all sealed for water tightness, the paint is beautiful (touch up paint provided too) and the pole pads look great. This was not an inexpensive goal but I got what I paid for. It is solid. It does not sway when a shot is taken, a ball is slammed or the strong Colorado wind hits it. I didn’t buy it for the looks but several neighbors have commented on how nice it looks and asked where I bought it. My only question is how well the pole pads will hold up in the brutal Colorado elements....so more to come.

Mega Slam Hoops are the Best!!!
I was looking for a great hoop for my yard and I definitely made the right choice. My Mega Slam 54 is professional grade and recommend to any looking for a hoop. Assembly was easy but you need at least 3 people to attach the backboard. Great product and glad I purchased this hoop!!!
