    Cons: padding material failure, Bounces when lowered
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I installed the goal about 2.5 months ago. My sons and I are happy with it so far. My sons, 10 & 8, shoot on the goal at 10 feet, at 6.5 feet (we have trouble lowering ours below 6.5'), and many heights in between. I'm happy we can adjust the goal below the 7.5 feet minimum of other goals on the market. Cranking this goal, though, does take some time. The friendly, knowledgable customer service folks at FleXtreme more than made up for the ambiguities in the installation instructions.

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    System arrived missing a j-bolt that was a bummer but Pro Hoops sent a new one after a few calls. The backboard was also damaged during shipping and am still waiting on resolution with this issue. Outside of the service issues, the system is great and is way better than the Goalrillas, Mammoths, and Goliaths in the neighborhood. My little kids (5 and 8) love the low height adjustment and can operate it easily by themselves. And I am getting lots of time on it shooting after work and on weekends.

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Would give it a 5 star, but the backboard tends to bounce slightly on really hard shots at the board. I do feel it is very secure and stable in the ground and will last longer than I need it. Looks great, plays great overall and my 6 year old son absolutely loves it (especially the super easy height adjustment). Would definitely recommend it.

    We researched all the hoops available before making a purchasing decision, and are very pleased that we selected FleXtreme. We use the hoop in our drive-way for family fun and a little bit of exercise. It looks great, without being bulky, and is by far the best looking and performing hoop in the neighborhood. The materials are top quality. It is obviously well built, and built to last. The FleXtreme is a great value!!

    There are several in-ground systems on the market. This one in my opinion is the best bang for the buck. It is sturdy and easy to setup. I research literally everything I purchase and looked for some time before deciding on FleXtreme Hoops. They offered more for your money and their desc riptions on the website are dead on accurate. Their customer service is top notch and very responsive. I would not hesitate to purchase from them again. Save yourself some time and stop researching and purchase their system, you will not be disappointed

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    This hoop is very well made. The backboard is a the real deal - true response and no dead zone like on the cheaper acrylic models. My kids love the ability to lower the hoop down to 5-6 feet. They spent hours doing dunks, trick shots and just having fun with friends. Installation was clear and everything assembled easily per the instructions. It is some work digging and pouring the concrete ba se - and the backboard is heavy so you will need help lifting and installing. But it is all worth it when you're finished and it is play time!

    I was very pleased with the hole constuct of the system. It was delivered on the exact date that was estimated. I followed the well written instructions, the hardest part was digging the hole like everyone else says. I ended up renting a cement mixer which made it much easier on the hands and back. Once the cement dried (I gave it a full 10 days) I was able to put the rest of the system together in about 1 hour with the help of my father. My son and i have played on it every night sense we installed it, i really like the fact my son who is 9 yrs. old can lower and raise the backboard all by himself. I was a little leary of buying such a big purchase online but I have to say I was very pleased with the whole experience.

    My family and I are looking forward to using our basketball hoop for many years to come. My wife and I both enjoy playing basketball (and are quite competitive). We have a 4 year old son who is quite the little pla yer already and will improve that much more now that we've got our own hoop that can be lowered to his height. We also have a 2 year old son who is already asking to play! The system itself is very easy to set up and the istructions were very straightforward. We are happy with the fact that this system is very stable and solid. Overall I am very pleased with this basketball system.

    Robust Design, Galvanized Plating Sets it apart from others. Recommend for Quality Basketball Goal.
    The McNaughton's from LeMars, IA gave the FleXtreme Silver Basketball System 4 out of 5 stars on 07/17/2010
    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Easy To Adjust, Weather Resistant TBD
    Best Uses: Pickup Games, Practice, Residential Use, Can be used for any play
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I purchased this basketball system for my three children to practice and enjoy. I am very happy with the robustness of the design and the operation of the height adjustment mechanism given my engineering background. Components fit together well, no issues. The concrete pour and anchor system went well. I did add a rebar cage 16"X16"X44" in the concrete pier. A single person can assemble most of it themself except for the backboard to the pole assembly. That will require 3 adults. The assemble as new is nice and tight with very little slop/play in the joints. The Rust Armor (galvanized plating) sold me on Pro Hoops, it sets them apart from their competitors for longitivity. I would recommend a little grease in all the sleeves/tubes to ensure smooth motion and reduce wear. My only issues I had were that the plastic knob on the crank adjustment cylinder was cracked and the Rim Height Indicator was cracked in shipping. I'll be contacting Pro Hoops to get them replaced. There were a couple small scratches on the Spring Assist Cartridge I touched up with paint. Placement of cardboard around this component would have prevented that. I would have like to seen welded caps on all the structural members verses plastic plugs for watertightness, still better than most competitors. The pole does have a hole in the bottom plate to allow water/condensation to exit, this is a good thing. I did not realize this product was made in China, I have too say they did a great job on manufacturing it. Overall, I would recommend this as a basketball goal system for anyone wanting a durable long lasting system.

    Product goes together pretty easy. Just make sure you have some help. Found the best way to put the backboard on was to put the backboard in the bed of a truck and back up to the lowered support structure. Backboard is solid- nice rebound. Shakes a little-bounces a bit when trying to lower. Improvements could be made to the up/down adjustment. Glad I purchased..whole family likes to play in the evenings and past dark!

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

    Our family put this Silver system in for fun and practice. We have three children (4, 8, and 10). With the wide range of ages, the adjust-ability from 5 to 10 feet is incredible. The crank system is easy enough for the 4 year old to operate. In the first week I think the net went from 5 to 10 feet about 100 times. The kids really enjoy the system and it really helps the younger kids with their shooting form by having an appropriately sized net height. The system has a very very slight shake after a ball hits it, but I expected a little shake from any system. It is not really anything to worry about and in general I consider the system to be rock solid. On the installation, it went smoothly and the customer service dept. helped me with some of my installation questions. Digging the hole took a couple of hours since I wanted to go 12 inches below the frost line here in Missouri. It probably didn't help that I tried to dig the hole on one of the hottest days of the summer. By the way, don't start to bell out your hole until you are below the frost line. The rebar should also vertically overlap the J-bolts. Since I had a deeper hole, I needed some 4ft. rebar (3ft. comes with the install kit). I put the rebar in a diamond pattern with respect to the J-bolts (square pattern). It took about 30 minutes to build the form for the top of the hole. I notched some grooves in the top of the form to lay string. The string helped with lining up the plate in the center of the pad while also staying parallel to the playing area. I leveled the form which took about another 15 minutes. My hole took 17 bags of 80 lb Quickrete (regular 4000 variety). I added some colorant to the top two bags worth. The colorant helped the pad blend in with the yard a lot better. I got all my concrete from Home Depot here. What was nice is that they had free rental of a cement mixer (holds 2 bags) with the purchase of at least 10 bags of crete. I highly recommend using a cement mixer and would use nothing else for a job of this size. Pouring the concrete took about an hour with another half hour to clean up. I covered the pad for 5 days with a plastic cover and placed a soaker hose under the cover. I had an automatic water timer that kept the pad wet for the entire 5 days (in 95 deg heat). I removed the wood forms on the 2nd day. The forms were attached with screws, so my impact driver (short barrel) came in handy to unscrew the forms. I did have to dig away to get to the screws. This seemed easier and cheaper than buying a whole box of the special nails with two heads. The next weekend I put up the system. System assembly took about 1.5 hours and needed 3 people (2 strong and 1 not-so-strong). I used a torque wrench for the bottom plate mounting nuts to make sure they were very tight (these are the nuts that hold the pole to the pad). To put on the backboard I used two ladders with a long 2X6 between them as a shelf. Two of us lifted the backboard onto the shelf. The third person lowered the mount (using the crank) down and slid the bolts in. Assembly is a breeze with this system. I am also pleased with the upgraded hardware for the weather (rust) protection. I have a lot of neighbors with rusting systems and I'm sure this hardware will last. I recommend this system to anyone and couldn't be happier. If you need a great system with a great price, look no further. I'm glad I found FleXtreme Hoops on the web.

    Best value on the market, worth the wait, despite the lack of communication from Customer Service
    Lil' B the baller from Pickerington, OH gave the FleXtreme Silver Basketball System 5 out of 5 stars on 07/07/2010
    Pros: Stable, Solid Backboard Response, High-Quality Materials / Construction, Weather Resistant
    Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Bounces when lowered
    Best Uses: Practice, Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    Very happy with the overall quality and materials. Does seem to bounce a bit at lower heights. It is easy to raise and lower, but takes forever to crank. Glass backboard is solid, and has a great feel when shooting. When ordering it took much longer than expected to receive the hoop. Had to call to get updated ETA several times. Would have been much better customer service, if they would have been proactive, and communicated delays as soon as they had them. Customer perception is a significant part of the overall experience, and I would have been much less frustrated had communication been better. Again, worth the wait, and the hoop is great!

    Cons: More motion when dunking
    Best Uses: Residential Use
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    My son (10) and boys in the neighborhood use for small games. We also use for just shooting around. My son will use more for practice in the fall. It moves more than I expected (up/down) when dunking. I thought it would be more stationary. I also don't like that I have had to put plastic over it to keep the rain out. I requested this replacement part two weeks ago on two separate occassions, and now again today with an email.

    This goal was the perfect choice for my 4 year-old's birthday present. I'm sure that he would have lost interest in a goal that only adjusted down to 7'-6" (all the others), but he loves this one. At a very low height, he can build confidence and use the correct technique instead of just heaving the ball.

    We have found this backboard to be the best one on the market for our family. The height adjustment is great for young children (6 and 4) and can be raised easily when I want to play with some friends. I know this hoop will be a magnet for our boys' friends as they grow. The customer service and shipping were great. Set up was simple, digging the hole for the concrete was the hardest part. Thanks for selling a solid product at a fair price. I thank my wife frequently for finding your webpage. I said we would never find a backboard that goes down to 5' that was better than the ones on sale at the local sporting goods store, while remaining in our budget. My wife was right, like always.

    This is a well constructed system. I work in the construction industry and the material use with this system is the same material used for stuctual steel in comercial buildings that I build. The only problem I have with the system is that when you let it down, it bounces. It seams that it needs another spring to assist on taking some of the weight off when it comes down. That the only issue I have with that. Lets face it, nothings perfect. I would recommend this to anyone!

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

    One great thing is being able to adjust down to 5'...You can clean the backboard without a ladder or have you 6 year old son dunk on it...very cool. The whole system is very strong...I am 6'3" and 250lbs and I crank dunks on this thing over and over. The only thing that I am not completely impressed with is the height guide. Not sure how it will last and then I will have to rig something up.


    MANUFACTURER RESPONSE:

    The height indicator is made of a high-quality, weather resistant, high-impact plastic to endure harsh weather conditions without becoming brittle. Also, because it is plastic and not metal, the risk of corrosion at the pivot point is eliminated. Lastly, the plastic height indicator has the added benefit of being clear which allows you to see the rim height markings beneath the indicator.

    I was down in the back the week it arrived and had my neighbor and kids assemble. As fast as I could read the directions and point to the pieces, they were up and running. About 45 minutes to install and that included the net. My only comment is that I wish the crank were geared lower, so that less revolutions were required to raise/lower. Good product and would recommend to anyone in the market.

    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    If I could take a picture of a normal day in our driveway that would be the best comment that I could provide. There are usually at least 5-8 kids playing at any given time from the neighborhood. I guess my biggest complaint would be that I can't find any time to play myself. Before filling out the review, I had asked my 5 yr old what he liked best about the new basketball hoop - his response - "I can dunk it!" The best thing about this product is that the kids can lower/raise the hoop whenever they want without the assistance from an adult. I can then just as easily raise it up to 10ft to play w/ my friends.

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

    We love our FleXtreme Hoops system. We have a 5 year old budding NBA star who loves for us to crank down the rim so he can shoot. Daddy and his bros play pick up games. we have the best system in town. Sure does beat those goals that tip over with a brisk wind. Only complaint, the first backboard we had shattered because we didn't put the sleeves over the screws.We torked down and "CRACK!!" in a million pieces. We didn't make that mistake twice. It is a bit heavy and you will need 2 strong guys for assembly. Now we just need a night light to continue playing into the night.

    Overall Awesome - kids ages 4-10 love it!
    Rawhide from Goodyear, AZ gave the FleXtreme Silver Basketball System 4 out of 5 stars on 05/12/2010
    Pros: High-Quality Materials / Construction, Solid Backboard Response, Stable, Easy To Setup, Easy To Adjust
    Best Uses: Residential Use, Practice
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    My kids ages 4-10 use this as part of our front (extended) driveway - neighbors are jealous and come over quite often. Pro's: VERY easy to set up. I was shocked how easy compared to a competitor's that I struggled to put up just a few years a go. Love the low adjustment for my 4 year old, yet my 10 year old likes it high - they can adjust it themselves quite easily! Stable, looks good, and works well. Cons: Rim bracket difficult to attach to backboard - two bolts difficult; two easy. "Safety bar" to keep it above ~ 7 feet bent easily. I removed it as I have young ones that love it at low level!

    Easy to adjust with a wide range for all ages.
    Dave from Galena, OH gave the FleXtreme Silver Basketball System 4 out of 5 stars on 05/11/2010
    Pros: High-Quality Materials / Construction, Solid Backboard Response, Easy To Adjust
    Best Uses: Residential Use, Practice
    Bottom Line I would recommend this product to a friend

    I got this product for my 5, 9 and 10 year olds. I really like the fact that it can be adjusted from 5 to 10 feet very easily. The glass backboard is true in that it doesn't get scratched or marred. I installed this mostly by myself and the directions were fairly easy to follow. The only help I needed was connecting the backboard to the supports. It was great cause you could lower them causing no stress on the guys holding it while the bolts were put in place. I wish it was just a little more stable at the arm assembly because it does move slightly (quiver) on most rim shots. I think this could be remedied with a little wider supports.

    High-Performance, Durable Design and Construction

    Bring gymnasium quality play home with a genuine FleXtreme Silver 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® Silver 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.

      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.

    • 5" 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® Silver 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.
