What is the difference between a plastic backboard frame and a steel backboard frame?
Plastic frames are not as stiff as steel frames. Thus, a backboard with a steel frame will produce a much better rebound than if the backboard frame is plastic.
Can my child operate the Action Grip height adjuster?
The Action Grip is operated using a single handle mounted to the back of the backboard. The handle is somewhat high off the ground, making tampering with height difficult for particularly young children and manageable for older children.
Hoop chute: ideal for personal practice time. The hoop chute directs made shots back towards the player.
