I would recommend this to a friend

The rim was simple since it is at 5' when you install it---I had it resting on my shoulders when I bolted it to the backboard. This main post is extremely rigid. I leveled it and left it slightly tilted back, assuming it would deform a bit when the backboard was attached and hanging 4 feet away. I checked it after everything was installed, and the level was in the exact same place. It hadn't moved a bit. The backboard has a solid bounce, and the break-away rim prevents too much shock loading on the post.
