When you think about Basketball Systems, what comes to mind? Some people would say it refers to a basketball inground system, or a portable basketball goal, or even a basketball wall mounted system. As those hoops may be the common terminology, but don’t forget about ceiling mounted backstops, roof mounted Basketball Backboards, and basketball swimming pool systems.
Whatever the case may be, all basketball systems have three common elements, a backboard, rim, and a net. Where they will be played, the players skill levels, and economics will determine the type of basketball system you would want to purchase.
There is a lot more to a basketball hoop than a backboard and a rim. There are many variations of all the essential components.
When it comes to basketball, the sport is fast paced and aggressive. The equipment used in basketball gets a lot of abuse over time, whether you are a recreational player or a professional one. Fortunately for basketball players, if any one part of the basketball hoop system becomes damaged the individual part can be replaced, whether you are talking about the pole, the rim or the backboard.
If you are interested in replacing your basketball backboard, you need to know a few things. For example, the dimensions that you want to use. If you already were using a backboard but were unhappy with the shot support received from the backboard, then you may want to go larger. Basketball backboards are available from 40 to 72 inches. 40 to 60 inches are your typical home sizes and 72 inches is regulation. The rule for basketball backboards is that the bigger the backboard the easier it is to make a shot.
Basketball backboards are also available in a couple of different thicknesses. Regulation is 1/2” thick, for home use; however, you should determine the thickness based on your need and amount of use it will receive. The thicker the backboard is, the longer it will last and the more durable it will be. However, affordability will most likely play a big part in your purchase, especially for a home purchase, and the thinner the board (as well as the smaller) the less expensive it will be.
We offer basketball backboards in a variety of materials. Glass is typically used in professional sports for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it looks professional, secondly it is more durable than other options, and thirdly it allows for fans to see the ball in play through the backboard without having to adjust their positions to see around the backboard.
Other materials available for our basketball backboards are acrylic, tempered glass, plastic, aluminum, steel, and fiberglass. Each one of these materials has their own merit for basketball players. Most decisions are made about materials based on durability and affordability. Using the different kinds of materials while playing basketball will often make it easier for you to make your decision when the time comes.
When choosing your shape you have two choices, either rectangular or fan shaped. Each one has their own benefits. The rectangular shape is best for making shots and improving free throw and other shooting skills. The fan shaped is typical for a home setting, this is because it is much more affordable than the rectangular shaped. However, if your game is already good, then the fan shape will do fine for practicing.
Whether you are purchasing a backboard to replace a broken one, or you are looking for an upgrade, you are sure to find what you need here. There is a backboard for every budget and for every situation, whether for serious play or for recreation. Choose the right size and materials based on your needs, your support equipment (such as the pole) and your budget and you will be happy with your purchase.
PORTABLE Basketball Backboards VS INGROUND
Portable hoops offer the greatest flexibility of placement around your driveway and yard. You may live in a cul de sac where a portable goal can be placed into the street on a "temporary" basis offering an inviting play area for you and your neighbors. You may want to assemble the hoop and play right away without digging holes and waiting weeks for the cement to set. If this describes your needs, there are entry, mid, and deluxe level portable Basketball Backboards suited to your needs.
IN-GROUND Basketball Backboards
In-Ground Basketball Backboards offer a step up from Portable Basketball Backboards. To a basketball enthusiast, there is nothing more handsome in a home than an in ground basketball system perfectly integrated into the driveway of a home. It's both aesthetically pleasing, and practical. In ground hoops offer a higher degree of stability which is a key consideration to the basketball connosieur. You want a solid hoop that yields a minimum amount of sway when you clank a shot off the rim or do a monster tomahawk dunk. Poles used on lower end in-ground basketball systems come in sections of as many as three. That's fine for the casual player. If you want more, however, look for the thickest gauge one piece pole you can afford.
BACKBOARD SIZE AND SHAPE
Basketball backboards come in a range of backboard sizes from 48", 54" to the NBA regulation 72". Get the biggest backboard you can afford, because the bigger backboards offer more playing surface. For the pro look, clear rectangular backboards are preferable to the fan shaped backboards.
The majority of Basketball Backboards backboards can be made of acrylic or tempered glass, more expensive of the two. Get the glass if you can, because it is stiffer than acrylic. With less flex, you get truer bounce off the backboard.
There are various height adjust mechanisms for Basketball Backboards. They include: from use-a-broom handle bracket slots to squeeze handle gas pressure, squeeze handle spring loaded, and worm gear hand crank. Gas pressure cartridges have a lifetime expectancy of 5 -7 years. Springs last a similar amount of time before they deform. The worm gear hand crank mechanism found on higher end Basketball Backboards offer the maximum in fine tune adjustability Keep in mind that any height adjust introduces flex and sway to the backboard. The heigher end backboards compensate by using thicker gauge metal.
