    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Myself, my children and their friends use this basketball hoop to both practice and for pick up games. We have had some of the less expensive hoops before, but they always seem to be flimsy and do not hold up under weather conditions. As our boys got a little older and became more proficient in basketball, it became evident that we had to purchase a hoop with more stability and a glass backboard. The only negative about the hoop might be that it is a little difficult to adjust, mainly for the smaller kids. Overall, We love it!!!!!!!

    Great Goal! Easy Install! TImely Delivery! What else do you ned to know?!

    Our Family plans to use our new goal to have fun togehter as our girls learn to play basketball. In the 2 short months we have had our goal, our Family time togheter is priceless and it is wintertime who knows ho much we will use it when it is warm - even my WIfe is out there shooting hoops! Our Austrailian Shepherds, Boomer and Roo, have proven to be great defenders! Who knew? We especiallly thank you FleXtreme Hoops for the careful coordination with Santa and using a big truck to deliver this goal instead of taking so much room in his sleigh. FleXtreme Hoops really are slam dunks!

    The goal is great - disappointed in the post purchase service
    BG from chapel hill, NC gave the FleXtreme Gold Basketball System 4 out of 5 stars on 02/15/2011
    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, Easy To Adjust, Weather Resistant
    Cons: Adjusment arm cap tore
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    The goal itself is great. The backboard response is the best of any driveway unit I have ever played on and the adjustment mechanism is easy enough to operate that my 7 year old daughter can adjust it to the height that she wants. But I am disappointed in the post-sale service. When I inspected the goal after the professional installation the weather cap on the bottom of the adjustment arm was torn. I contacted FleXtreme to get a replacement cap and they told me they don't stock just the cap - I would have to BUY the entire arm to resolve the issue. They also said that it would not be covered under warranty since it was damaged during installation. I have no idea when it was damaged but it's extremely disappointing that my expensive brand new basketball goal has a damaged spot an easily replaceable part and the vendor basically washed their hands of it. So, I recommend, but with a caveat.

    Perfect driveway basketball goal. I can't believe I hadn't bought this type of goal previously rather than the cheap portable type. I can't wait for it to warm up a little so we can use it even more.

    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Easy To Setup, Weather Resistant
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use, Commercial Use, Tournaments
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Overall a great hoop. It is very solid from the in-ground anchor, the pole, the backboard to the rim. I would definitely buy this again. A few parts were missing in the original delivery, but they responded very quickly. The cranking handle for adjusting the height is a little awkward to use, but we don't adjust our hoop. Thanks

    High quality & very solid

    Finally Playing Ball
    Encino Driveway Ball from Encino, CA gave the FleXtreme Gold Basketball System 4 out of 5 stars on 01/25/2011
    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction
    Cons: Hard To Setup, Difficult To Adjust
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Overall good product. My installer shattered the backboard during installation, so you really have to watch out for the warning, which is in the instructions, and the small package with the plastic spacers. The bag with the spacers, and its warning, got misplaced during installation and both I and the installer missed the warning in the instructions. I would argue it should be more apparent, particularly since I had to buy a replacement backboard, which nearly doubled the price. Now that it's up, I am satisfied. The adjustment, however, is not as easy as the website would indicate. My seven year old cannot turn the crank, and moving the board from 10' to 6' is a bit of a workout for me also. The unit also shakes (slightly) as the backboard is lowered. Despite that, I would still recommend it.

    i got kids used to shooting at lower heights, than gradually would raise it. you can lower it and slam it just like the big boys, and you dont have to worry about the system crashing down. watch your forearm when cranking.

    Have only had it for a few months, but so far so good. Installation was a breeze for two guys. Only wish I could have afforded the bigger backboard. You can see and feel the quality construction. The design is nicer than your avg system too.

    Best Uses: Residential Use, Pickup Games, Practice, all games
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    we purchase the "gold" system. it is perfect for our family. we have 2 teenagers that play competitive ball and a 5 year old girl who is able to lower and raise hoop herself. good response from backboard. very sturdy hoop that survived a night of 80+ mph windgusts. shipment from texas to washington state was 4 days...awesome. SUGGESTION: Follow the instructions for installation on You tube...the paper directions that come with the hoop are terrible....but if you follow the you tube video....it is soooo easy. I am not a handyman by any means, and it was a snap(once i stopped trying to understand the paper instructions)...i used approx. 14 80# bags of premix and i rented a small electric mixer for $20. The best $20 ive spent in a long time. Great system that i would highly reccomend to anyone. thank you!

    Really enjoying the new hoop

    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Easy To Setup
    Best Uses: Tournaments, Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I researched hoops for quite awhile before deciding on this brand. I am extemely happy with the solid construction and response of the overall hoop and especially the backboard. I thought setting it up might take some time, but my two sons and I had it completed in less than two hours (not counting concrete of course). I am very happy with the result. My other concern was hoop adjustment. I liked the idea of the brands that had "lift handle", but it seemed to be pretty heavy when you had a decent sized and quality backboard. The crank in this system takes a little longer and some "elbow grease", but works very well and doesn't rely on a lot of strength to adjust it. I didn't comment on weather resistance, because we haven't gone through a winter yet, but by all appearances, it should hold up fine. I would definitely choose this system again.

    This beautiful basket is a significant step up from the unit I had that blew down in a thunderstorm a few months ago. I wish it cost less, but I like it and enjoy using it. It is relatively easy to adjust--my 11 year old finds it a bit tough to adjust, but he is able to do it. I like that it actually goes down to below five feet.

    Two high school varsity pla yers (and friends) practice on this and love it - rugged, responsive. I was concerned about spending so much money on something I hadn't seen in person, but this was worth the risk. Solid construction. Minor criticism - the height adjustment guage could be better.

    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Easy To Setup, Easy To Adjust
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Bought this hoop as a birthday gift for my three boys: 8, 4, 2.5 yrs. This was one of the only hoops that would adjust low enough for my 4yr old to shoot. He can even hang on the rim like his big brother. We all love playing on it and I know that we will be using this for dozens of years to come. I didn't want to waste money on a flimsy portable hoop, or buy one that my younger boys couldn't use until they got older. It was also important to me to get thick glass backboard and sturdy construction. After months of research, I determined I would have to spend nearly double the money to get anything better made without any compromises. These hoops are a great value. Setup was easy. I did everything myself (well the boys did hand me bolts and nuts), except lifting the backboard in place. You need at least two guys for that part, along with someone to push the bolt in place. Overall, I can heartily recommend FleXtreme Hoops to anyone who wants a great hoop and a great value.

    We're having a blast. The system is really really impressive.
    E.J. from Bethesda, MD gave the FleXtreme Gold Basketball System 5 out of 5 stars on 09/04/2010
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    We're having a blast. The system is really really impressive. There's really no negatives. It's so solid it's like playing in a gym. It doesn't shake at all--a testament to both the system and the installation. In fact, it shakes so little, I forgot until I played on different system last weekend that shaking is actually a problem some basketball systems have. The bottom line is that we go out to play and it's ready for us. I can't possibly imagine a better system. We've raised it and lowered it, no issues. My kids are 5 and 8 and have been playing on it so much that they've noticeably improved in fewer than 3 weeks (if the older one thinks she's MJ, the younger one is now committed to being "Kobe". LOL!) To the FleXtreme folks: if you have folks who need installation in the maryland area, I can't recommend Kenny and his Reliant Assembly team high enough. The job required flexibility. Flexibility in the installation given the specific needs and layout of the court and backyard. And flexibility on scheduling--I'm in a high stress position with a very busy schedule and , for example, I asked Kenny if we could get an earlier start than is his usual to solve a schedule conflict for me, and he made it seem to be no problem at all (no hemming and hawing, just Ok, we can do that). They convey professionalism. Kenny and the gentleman working with him, Mike, were very professional when they were here--they explained everything to me and then did exactly what they explained. The installation looks very clean. And they were very nice, personable people (don't underestimate the value of that when someone is installing something that is supposed to be fun for your kids).

All materials are of very high quality and the unit looks great in our driveway. Backboard and rim are quite solid and missed shots bounce high off the rim as they should.

    While we were disappointed with the extreme delay due to multiple backorders, the hoop was worth the wait. It is very big, sturdy, and solid. Hopefully, it will give our 4 kids many years of playing. The only thing I would change is to have a more permanent height marker with a less flimsly plastic protector. Otherwise, it's a great system.

    The installation of the basketball goal was quite simple, with only a few parts to assemble, compared to competitors products. I am more than satisfied with the stability and durability of the system. I would definitely recommend this product to all my friends...enemies are welcome to buy from another manufacturer.

    Pros: Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Easy To Setup, Stable, Easy To Adjust, Weather Resistant
    Best Uses: Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Self install, factory installs a lot of frame and padding fasteners and that saved effort on my side (thanks). The ball seems to springs off the glass and the system resists shaking while playing. A disappointment has been when lowering the backboard it has an awkward bounce while turning the adjustment handle. There isn't any issue raising. I haven't pursued a solution, having too much fun playing. I would recommend this system to a friend.


    MANUFACTURER RESPONSE:

    atl, try loosening the 8 lock-nuts at the pivot points. Many customers unnecessarily tighten these down which can make adjustment more difficult and cause the "bouncing" action you're describing.

    I cannot seem to stop raving about our Gold FleXtreme backboard. Not only does it play like a professonal piece of equipment, it actually gives our property great curb appeal. Everyone who sees it and more importantly plays on it are just taken with its performance and asthetics. I cannot remember the last time i got this type of satisfaction from a purchase. Add to this, great customer service and you have a winning product and business. My family and i thank you for creating such a product.

    Cons: Weak Instructions
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Solid product. I would recommend to others. The instructions could be made better for those installing themselves. The installation actually doesn't have a lot of steps, but the instructions make it take longer than it should. I am not sure if they tested the instructions with someone that had never worked with a basketball system or not. In the end I figured it all out and everything looks and works great, so not a fatal flaw, but rather a chance to improve an already good product.

    I really like this product! I spent a lot time researching adjustable systems. The Gold system is priced well and an excellent value for the money. It's very sturdy and the backboard is great for bank shots - bounces very true with 1/2 inch glass. This is the versatility I was looking for - something that would adjust down for my kids, but also up to the 10' level for some serious shooting practice. I play full court hoops 2X a week and this a great quality gym-like system! I highly recommend the Gold system :)

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

    Mostly used for fun with the kids. Several boys in the neighborhood have asked permission to use it when we are not around. Adjustment is extremely easy, however it did not adjust down to 5 1/2'...and you need to be careful not to force the adjustment to go lower as you can bend the "stop" pin and extension arm.


    MANUFACTURER RESPONSE:

    Bob, feel free to take out the "stop" pin as this is an optional feature for parents that do not want their children lowering the system below 7 feet.

    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, Easy To Setup, Easy To Adjust
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I found the system to be structurally sound, fairly straightforward to set up (although it took a lot of study on my part) but most of all the kids have a blast with it. While the system uses some very sturdy steel, i was disappointed that the limiter pin which holds the top from going below about 7 feet already has dented the top arm, my 9 year old was able to bend the pin; I would've expected a little more beef for something like that. But overall, very satisfied and the kids will use it for many years to come.


    MANUFACTURER RESPONSE:

    Bill, feel free to take out the "limiter pin" as this is an optional feature for parents that do not want their children lowering the system below 7 feet.

    I bought this for my two young sons (ages 7 and 5). The adjustability is key for my situation and my 7 year old can adjust the height himself. I installed this myself a month and a half ago and it is the hit of the neighborhood. Other than digging the hole and dealing with the bags of concrete, the installation was easy. The only thing I needed help with was lifting the backboard in place while my wife slid the bolt to secure it. The post-concrete installation process took about 1-1.5 hours. I would recommend this product, in fact, I already have to several people.

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I am extremely pleased with my Gold basketball system. The quality of the product is amazing. Each part is obviously heavy duty and built to last. The rim alone is very sturdy and surprisingly heavy. The entire buying process emphasized customer service including informative web site, pre-order questions, prompt shipment and professional service from the delivery team. I was able to install with help of a relative, my wife and my two daughters. It was some work to get the hole dug in the clay soil, but after that the install was quite easy. The concrete mixing & installation of the anchor system was finished in 2 hours. One week later the actual set up of pole, backboard & rim was completed in 1 hour. Now that the new Gold system is up, I'm the envy of the neighborhood. My next door neighbor said it is such high quality, she is expecting to see NBA pla yers show up to play in the driveway. My kids like the professional look and the easy to adjust height control. Highly recommended! Thanks for the great service!

      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 home with a genuine FleXtreme Gold basketball system. A high-performance ½" thick tempered glass backboard and 7 ga. 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® Gold 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.

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

    • Protective safety padding

      The FleXtreme® Gold 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.
