Make the upgrade to the 78888 in-ground basketball system. This basketball hoop features a 54-inch acrylic backboard, a 4x4 square pole, and a break-away rim. The soft square pole shape provides greater stability in the ground compared to round poles. Acrylic backboards are ideal for home driveway basketball courts as they hold up much better to aggressive and abusive play. The Slam-It Pro rim holds up well to dunking and aggressive basketball play.

This system comes with a 5-year warranty from Lifetime Products. All steel parts of the system are powder coated to help the metal resist rusting. The 78888 also includes an all-weather white net. All major components of the system are Made in the U.S.A.

This product has a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

Simply hang onto the original packaging and contact us within 30 days of receipt if you are not satisfied with this product. We will have the item picked up at our cost and refund you in full. We are that confident you will love this product!

Great Product
Directions were fairly easy to follow. Competitive Edge is a great company and I did receive the product as ordered. I also purchased the 4" ground sleeve and this was a must for the type system (makes installation easier). I would highly recommend this system.

Q: What is the difference between the 78888 and the 71525?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:04:15 AM
A: There are two major differences between these systems - besides the backboard graphic. First, the backboard frame - the steel part that surrounds the backboard material - is thicker on the 78888 than on the 71525. The frame thickness on the 78888 is 1.5 inches, whereas the frame is 1-inch thick on the 71525. A thicker frame can improve the rebound on the backboard and can improve the longevity of the system. Second, the other major difference is the pole shape and size. The pole on the 71525 is 3.5 inch round. The pole on the 78888 is 4x4 square. A larger, square pole provides greater stability in the ground compared to a smaller, round pole
