When you shop for basketball hoops and basketball goals, there are important features you need to look for. You want to find equipment that is easy to assemble, easy to set-up, well constructed, and durable. When shopping for portable basketball hoops, be aware that pole gauge can range from 3.5" to 4.5". Thicker is better for setups, more solid, and less prone to sway. Adjustable height is recommended for portable hoops. For in-ground basketball hoops, height adjustable mechanisms tend to add sway. Of gas assisted lifts and crank lifts, gas is more convenient and lasts about 6 years. Crank lifts are simpler, last forever, and offer a finer degree of control. For maximum stiffness, get a non-adjustable mechanism. You want to be assured that the hoops will not break or bend. You want rugged shatter guard back boards and stable bases. Backboard material can range form stamped opaque plastic to clear acrylic to clear glass; glass is the best material as it is 33% stiffer to allow for truer bounces. Backboards range in size form 44" to 72", the bigger the better to allow for more backboard shots. It is important to purchase durable, weather resistant, quality sports gear for your basketball hoop and basketball goal equipment to insure years of fun for you and your family and friends. Look to JumpUSA.com for all your sports equipment needs.
