The pin at the bottom of the gas spring is too short to touch the handle. Is the gas spring defective?
Possibly. More likely, however, the pin needs lubrication. It may not be coming all the way out, because there may be some friction that can be resolved with some lubrication. If that doesn't work, you will want to give us a call for troubleshooting.
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.
