    St.Croix SDA from Medley to USVI, FL gave the FleXtreme Diamond Basketball System 5 out of 5 stars on 02/19/2011

    Best Uses: Tournaments, Pickup Games, Practice
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    We are surrounded by the ocean (St.Croix USVI) so the rust armor was appealing to me. I had been researching systems for a month. I bought two FleXtreme Diamond systems for my school and we were not disappointed. It is what we expected "a monster". not only can it withstand our weather but it is superior in strength, quality, stability etc to several other systems that I observed around our Island. We anticipate having these systems for a long time. Searl Gordon St.Croix VI

    I would buy this product again and again; really pleased!

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    We have five children ranging from 18 to 3, this is the best purchase we've made by far! We were concerned, always wonder if such a big purchase is the right one ... it WAS!! Looks absolutely great in our driveway, and ALL the kids can use it. Very easy to adjust, the little ones can go out there and crank it to their level on their own. But the main thing is the quality, don't spend your time trying to find something better ... you just found THE BEST!!! I looked for over a year and talked with Ryan three times before we actually bought the unit and we couldn't be happier. This is one of those basketball units where you just stare and say "Wow, I can't believe that's ours." Great product!

    Features

    Effortlessly Adjustable From 6'

    The FleXtreme® Diamond basketball system is perfect for families. An innovative dual canister quad spring, lift-assist mechanism neutralizes the weight of the backboard. This allows players of all ages to effortlessly adjust the height anywhere between 6' and 10' with the simple turn of a handle.

    Learn about the adjustment mechanism in under 60 seconds »

    FleXtreme® Diamond Shown

    • Adjustable Down To 6'

      Don't leave anybody out! Let your young competitor get a head start at the 6' rim height. Also, this allows installation to be done from a standing position without ladders or special tools.

    • Effortless Adjustment

      The FleXtreme's powerful lift-assist mechanism neutralizes the weight of the backboard allowing a 6-year-old child to easily adjust the system.

    • Safe, Enclosed Adjustment Mechanism

      A fully enclosed adjustment mechanism keeps children and other players safe while adjusting the height of the system.

    • No Pins, No Rod, No Sweat

      Meet the simplest adjustment mechanism available. Turn the handle clockwise to go up, counter-clockwise to go down. When you reach the height you want, stop turning. It's that simple!

    • Padlock the System at Any Height

    • Easily See the Rim Height While Adjusting

      The height meter is mounted so the person adjusting the system can easily read and set the system at precise heights.

    • Precisely Calibrate the Rim Height

      The rim height indicator is set after the concrete has settled and cured to ensure accurate rim height measurements.

    • The Adjustment Handle Is Accessible To All Players

      The adjustment handle is mounted at a height players of all ages can reach.

    High-Performance, Durable Design and Construction

    Bring gymnasium quality play to your home or institution with a genuine FleXtreme® Diamond basketball system. Available high-performance regulation-sized ½" thick tempered glass backboard and 8" square 7 ga. thick one-piece steel pole delivers unrivaled durability and performance that continues to exceed demanding expectations and out-perform alternatives.

    • 33% More Glass, 9% Better Rebound Response Than Closest Alternative

      Backboard Rebound Response

      Almost all gymnasiums use ½ inch thick tempered glass backboards while residential hoops use softer and thinner materials. This experiment is intended to determine how a ½ inch thick tempered glass backboard performs compared to traditional residential backboards.

      VIDEO: Rebound Response Experiment

      • Experiment Parameters
        - The backboards are all 60 x 36 inches and have identical aluminum framing. The ball used is made of an indoor outdoor synthetic material. All balls were dropped from a consistent 55 inches and were measured with a high speed digital camera. Rebound response is defined here as the percentage of distance the ball bounced back from the original drop height.
      • Summary
        - Acrylic was the clear looser with only a 38% rebound response (some manufactures use thinner 3/8 acrylic which was not tested). 1/2 inch glass was the winner beating 3/8 inch glass by approximately 9% with a 69% rebound response.
    • Heavy-Duty Backboard Frame

      The FleXtreme® Diamond backboard is encased in a ¼" thick die-cast solid aluminum frame. This adds incredible rigidity to the board and protects the edges of the glass. The glass is locked into place with ¼" steel "L" brackets at each corner. A rubber gasket lines the channel that the glass sits in as a buffer from the metal frame.

      This mechanical method of mounting the glass is the same used on competitive NBA and NCAA backboards. Many other residential basketball systems use an adhesive to mount the glass which can weaken over time in the elements and can expose the edges of the glass increasing the chances of breakage.

      Backboard Frame-To-Glass Mounting Process

      Backboard Frame Comparison

    • Available High-Performance Regulation-Sized Tempered Glass Backboard

      Backboard Material Comparison

      Tempered glass is approximately 4 times heavier than acrylic. This adds mass to the system and improves the rebound response off of the backboard.

      Secondly, tempered glass is harder than acrylic. This creates a much more rigid surface and eliminates the drumhead effect that deadens rebounds on acrylic boards. Also, much like your car windshield, the hard tempered glass will resist scratching and remain clear. Acrylic will scuff and become cloudy over time.

      Acrylic does have its place. We recommend it in institutional applications where vandalism is likely. This is because acrylic will not shatter.

      In summary, tempered glass is preferred in most situations for its performance and durability over time. If you are concerned about vandalism acrylic might be the better option for you.

    • High-Performance Extension Arm Mounting

      Bank Shot Activity Heat Map

      Where are you really going to need stability? We have developed the diagram on the right to show where most bank shots bounce off of the backboard.

      We have put together the diagram below. to show how the FleXtreme® systems add stability at the most crucial point while others ignore stability in favor of perceived aesthetic value. This also demonstrates that square joints are more rigid than curved. Click the "Shoot Bank Shot" link above to see a demonstration.

      Backboard Mounting Stability Demonstration

    • 8" Square, 7 Gauge Thick, One-Piece, Square Steel Pole

      Steel Thickness Comparison

      As the price of steel rises many manufactures are beginning to reduce the thickness of their main pole. This reduces the stiffness yielding a less stable, poor performing basketball system. Make sure you're getting a full 7 gauge (3/16") thick main pole.

      The quickest way to determine the quality of a basketball system is to check the pole type. All premium hoops use a square (or rectangular) one-piece pole with 7 gauge or higher thickness.

      Stay away from multi-piece poles. Manufactures split the poles into several pieces for shipping and distribution purposes. Right out of the box, you'll see that these joints are the weak link in the system and will weaken more over time from corrosion.

      Pole Type Comparison

    • Limited Lifetime Warranty - Covers Dunking and Hanging

      We proudly back the genuine FleXtreme basketball goal with an unsurpassed warranty. The durable design, quality construction and over 24 years of experience ensure you will enjoy a lifetime of play and never worry about maintenance or replacing your system.

      Every part of the heavy-duty FleXtreme system has been designed to exceed performance expectations under extreme playing conditions. The FleXtreme goal is completely warranted for dunking and hanging on the rim. Other manufactures did not design their hoops for this kind of aggressive play and will not warrant it.

    • Industry Leading Corrosion Protection

      This system is currently available with our industry leading Rust Armor™ package. This will not delay your ship date.

      • What's included?
        • Zinc Galvanization

          The main structural components are dipped and coated in a galvanizing solution that will protect the raw steel from corrosive elements. These parts pass through a molten bath of zinc at a temperature of 860 degrees thoroughly coating them with a thick robust layer of zinc.

          This process is commonly known as hot-dip galvanization and prevents corrosion by forming a physical barrier and by acting as a sacrificial anode. The zinc coating reacts with oxygen, water molecules and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to yield an impermeable, tenacious, insoluble layer of zinc carbonate. This level of protection is similar to that of aluminum and stainless steels.

          Wikipedia was referenced for this information including the following pages Galvanization, Sacrificial Anode , and Hot-Dip Galvanizing.

        • Stainless Steel Fasteners

          Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel Bolt Comparison

          All fasteners are upgraded to stainless steel ensuring your system will look great and never weaken or seize up over time. Untreated carbon steel fasteners will be replaced with durable stainless steel to ensure your goal will remain structurally sound and reduce unsightly rust streaks.

          Destructive corrosives such as road and costal salt will not weaken fasteners. They also make moving your system a snap! Never worry about rusty fasteners seizing up while disassembling and reassembling the system.

        • Extended Corrosion Warranty

          Your system will be warranted against structural damage caused by corrosion for a lifetime!

          We are so confident that the galvanized coating and stainless steel fasteners included in the Rust Armor™ package will eliminate any risk of corrosion that we are backing these products up with an extended lifetime warranty that covers damage caused by corrosion.

          This warranty covers all environments including brutal costal conditions, salt from road clearing and dense humidity.

    • Very little signage

      We don't treat your system like a billboard. There is a small sticker on the backboard and extension arm that can be removed if you'd like.

    • Rectangular clear backboard with padding

      Delivers a very professional look that adds prestige to your home

    • Proportionate and Unobstructed

      There is minimal clutter behind the backboard from the support structure and the pole is not as tall as others. Because of this design, the system is perceived as smaller and less obtrusive.

    • Protective safety padding

      The FleXtreme® Diamond is designed to protect all players. Young and elite players alike will appreciate the complete padding set included with every FleXtreme® system. No matter what height players are dunking at durable shock absorbing backboard padding will protect their head. Wrap around pole padding protects aggressive players that drive in hard for a lay-ups and play underneath the hoop. The gusset padding protects players from rolling an ankle or falling onto exposed bolts at the base. In contrast, many other basketball goals do not include the protective padding needed to keep players injury free.
    • Break-away rim

      For players unleashing their dunking power on the FleXtreme® system, we have included a heavy-duty break-away rim that is designed to absorb the pressure and pop right back into place. This softens the blow to player's hands and joints preventing injury.
    • Enclosed adjustment mechanism

      All springs and cranks are safely enclosed ensuring players will not get their fingers or clothing tangled up while adjusting the system.
    • Keeps kids in a safe home environment

      The FleXtreme® system gets children excited about being active and keeps them at home. Your new engaging driveway or backyard basketball court will be the new neighborhood hangout allowing you to conveniently keep a close eye on your impressionable children.
    • Large safe-play area

      Take the pole out of the playing area while keeping balls and players on the court. Overhang is defined as the distance from the front of the pole to the front of the backboard. Regulation courts have a distance of 4' from the baseline to the front of the backboard. This area is used to box out and allows players running in for lay-ups to stay in play. More importantly it keeps the pole out of the playing area reducing the likelihood of injury to players. Larger overhang distances also keep players from stepping off the playing surface which reduces injuries such as rolled ankles.
