Additional Information and Differences to Note About the 3279 Lifetime Basketball Backboard and Rim Combo:
This Lifetime basketball backboard and rim combo have several uses. Most customers for this product either want to use this backboard as a replacement basketball backboard, others want to use it to mount to their wall, roof, or wall at home, and others want to use this backboard institutionally at a school or playground. An important design feature to note with this system is that the backboard frame is plastic. Plastic tends to have a longer life outdoors than metal; but, plastic is also weaker than a comparable steel backboard frame and is more prone to breakage. A suitable alternative to this 48-inch basketball backboard that has a steel frame is the 73729 Lifetime basketball backboard. This backboard is also 48 inches wide, but it has a steel frame instead of the plastic frame. Both of these basketball backboards are about the same price after shipping costs. Another difference between these two systems is the 73729 also has a breakaway rim, whereas the 3279 has a dual-spring compression rim; the breakaway rim is the higher-end model.
We also carry a large assortment of Lifetime basketball systems.
