These are a few hundred off the regular price. They sometimes include installation for free but not at this price. You'd still pay for materials anyway so dig a hole if the ground is not frozen or wait til Spring.

$460 more and you could have had a Goalrilla 60" on BF. Would prob wait again for that as this one can't hold a candle to it

Thats BS. The Silverback is a pretty heavy duty home system that works great, I've been playing on it for years. The Goalrilla is great too with thicker steel but they both play great.
Either one of them are very steady and stay up year round (heavy winters here in PA). These are professional quality baskets....either of them.

I've had my eye on this hoop since the last time it popped up on Slickdeals and the price has been consistently at $899 (rarely ever drops). If you can install this yourself or with a friend, this is a steal!!

I'd agree that the Goalrilla is the better hoop but $460 difference on a $560 item isn't exactly a apples to apples deal comparison.

This is a good deal, but Amazon won't ship it to Hawaii.

Couldn't get in on the Goalrilla deal for that reason, either. Nor DickSportingGoods nor AcademySports. Even CostCo won't ship hoops to Hawaii.

Note: Some of the orders were initially processed by the above vendors, only to be later canceled due to shipping costs.

Eventually settled on Home Depot. Lifetime 60" for $1100. Not a good deal, but that's the only in-ground system that I could find. I'm just hoping that it arrives before Christmas.

EDIT: Home Depot canceled the order. Back-ordered was the reason that they gave, but I think it was really canceled because of the shipping costs.

My only remaining option is to use a freight-forwarding service. Depending on the actual shipping weight and dimensions of the product, the additional freight charges will run me somewhere between $700-$900

The Goalrillas are all 5x5 one-piece poles. The Silverback is 4x4 2-piece pole. The Silverback will be very slightly less stable but main thing is it probably can't handle hanging dunks due to the 2-piece design.
