Mini Pro Xtreme Basketball Hoop Set
Product Review (submitted on September 24, 2012):
I think for the price of this hoop it should come pre assembled.
Although I tried the best i could i couldn't get the metal corners perfectly aligned. The bottom corners are covered with foam rubber but the top has no protection at all. The top corners should also be protected. When playing indoors it's not impossible to come in contact with the top corners (and they can be very sharp). I filed down the edges with a file. For what I paid, I shouldn't have had to do that.
Other than those 2 issues I'm happy with this product. (Original 3/9/10)
JustInTymeSports says: While it would be expensive to ship a hoop fully assembled, the backboard comes pre-assembled as does the rim reducing assembly time by a significant amount.
