What do we think about this hoop?
This is one of our most popular lifetime goals. Use of this poolside basketball goals provide great exercise and tons of affordable competitive fun. The poolside goal model 1306 is considered to look nicer since it has a transparent backboard, but customers tend to go with this 1301 model since it plays almost the same anyway. The backboard on this is a blow molded plastic board that can withstand countless hours of play and have uv protectants that wont fade with time. It is easily adjustable allowing for play in any pool and most ages. Keep in mind that if you need to store this while not in use it will be better to use water than sand as 360 pounds of sand is difficult to move. All in all this is a great product and possibly the best bang for your buck of all the poolside water hoops. Here is a link to view the three models we carry.
What is the difference between the 1301 and the 1306 water basketball system?
All parts of these systems are identical, except for the backboard material. The 1301 uses high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic; the 1306 backboard is made with acrylic. HDPE plastic is opaque and more sturdy. Acrylic is a see-through material that produces a better rebound than HDPE.
