What do we think about this hoop?

The 73729 backboard and rim combo is a great product, especially for the price. We also carry larger boards, but this one is the best "bang for your buck". Most driveways have a 44"-48" board. We recommend at least a 48" board if you want a decent bank shot. The board is light weight and is designed to be used as a replacement backboard for most lifetime systems or a new board to be mounted to a roof, wall, or existing 3.5" round diameter pole. This board and rim gets our recommendation. A close second is the 79910 or the 71526 board, both larger boards.

What else do you need besides this backboard and rim combo?

The mounting brackets are sold separately. If you are mounting it to a roof you need the 9594 lifetime brackets. If you are mounting this to a 3.5" round pole then you need the 1044 adjustable lifetime brackets or you can use the 9594 brackets. If you are using the non-adjustable brackets make sure your pole is 10.5 from the ground to the top in order for your rim to reach 10. If you are considering the adjustable brackets your pole needs to be 8.5 (most poles are about 8.5 out of the ground). Here are the Lifetime Mounting Brackets . You can also see the brackets in the recommended items by scrolling to the bottom of this page. They are models 9594 and 1044.

What mounting brackets can I use for this backboard?

Lifetime Sports Equipment basketball backboards and combo sets are compatible with the mounting brackets model 9594 non adjustable and 1044 adjustable basketball hoop mounting kits. The basketball hoop mounting kit is not included with this unit but is sold separately. We also carry other Lifetime basketball replacement backboards and Basketball Goal Hardware and Accessories.

3 out of 5 stars Okay, but
by dgg from South Fork, PA on 5/19/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
The product is as advertised. It was low priced and worth what was paid. However, the parts and method of connecting the rim to the board were not well engineered. The pin was too short to use the clips(drilled and used cotter pins instead). Then the pin had to be removed to install the springs. This might be understood if not using a Lifetime mounting bracket but I was.

Backboard arrived in record time. Took time to read instructions. No surprises. It looks good and first 50+ shots have not broke it. I am happy with purchase.
