What are the differences between models 71522, 71523, and 71524?

The 71522 has an Acrylic board for improved rebound and less flex, but is less strong than the polycarbonate boards that the 71524 and 71523 have. The 71523 has a pole pad with it. Also, the 71522 & 71523 have 1.5 inch deep frames, and they have rigid extension arms that mount directly to the board frame. The 71524 has a 1 inch deep frame, and uses standard straight extension arms that mount to the backboard brackets instead of directly to the backboard. Our experience at Competitive Edge is that customers rarely if ever can tell a difference between the products during play. They are all great systems that will last many years.

What is a breakaway rim?

Breakaway rims have a mount to the backboard that does not move and a spring-loaded mechanism that allows the rim to pull away from the static mount on the backboard and then snap back into place.

Pole Pad: ideal for protecting players from direct impact with the pole of the system.

Hoop chute: ideal for personal practice time. The hoop chute directs made shots back towards the player.

5 out of 5 stars Great Product - Best Price Around
by Gregg from Palm Harbor, Florida on 12/27/2010
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This was a pretty straightforward and easy assembly... took a couple hours and it would have gone quicker had I had a helper. Very pleased with the product. Height adjustment is incredibly easy, so my 5 and 9 year old can play at their respective heights, and mine as well... Very pleased with the product, and it arrived quickly, and as promised.

by Ace from Warwick, NY on 11/2/2009

This basketball system was very simple to put together. It has been almost a year an it still looks right out of the box. I put it together by myself. It took a couple of hours.

3 out of 5 stars Overall nice but instructions were horrible!!!
by Johnny from Rockville, MD on 3/27/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
My two boys love the hoop but it was a pain in the rear end to put together. Next time I will happily pay $100.00 to have installers put together. Also, the back board came damaged on the back but it wasnt enough for me to package it back up and send back. When I lifted the top of the box, there was no foam to protect the back board. Hence why it was damaged. You definitely need two adults and a third person would be an added plus. The directions were horrible! Make sure you read them very carefully and dont attempt to do it on your own. It took us about 4 1/2 hours because we had to do a few things over.

1 out of 5 stars DONT NOT BUY
by MWilliams from Winterville, NC on 4/7/2011
Recommends it to Friends: No
Do not be swayed by all of these good reviews! This goal is actually completely terrible. First off, the rim bounces WAY too much and I have had multiple people come to look at it and it was concluded that it was a bad design. Next, this is not for competitive play whatsoever. When it is dunked on it shakes everywhere, much more so then lower end models that I have seen. Also, the setup is very complicated and requires a mechanical engineer for some parts like the lift system. The backboard is paper thin and after just a little bit of use it has started to cave in on itself. If you want something that is anything other than a low end starter goal, get something else. I have no idea why this go such high reviews, this is honestly a completely terrible product.
