When shopping for an inground basketball hoop, monitoring variations of the same, or similar, feature is important to make sure you are getting the best basketball goal for your money. We will compare several manufacturers of basketball systems in this post and hopefully help differentiate between basketball system features before you purchase.
While this is the first topic we will cover in the basketball hoop purchasing guide series, this is not necessarily the place you need to start with your shopping. The maker of the basketball hoop you are interested in just makes for a great logical sequence to proceed through to discuss the ins and outs of buying an appropriate basketball system for your home or organization. Each basketball hoop manufacturer, if successful, tends to target a particular market segment to fit the needs of a market segment better than anyone else. Thus, if you are wanting a high-end hoop, do not expect to find great options from low-end producers, and vise versa. The following list of common basketball hoop makers will help you sort who caters to your particular needs.
Every basketball system manufacturer on the planet wants to 1, have you buy their product; and 2, buy their replacement parts for their product. Thus, Lifetime Products, Spalding, Huffy, Goalrilla, Goalsetter, Mammoth, and every other maker you can think of has their very own design and specification for their rims. Not only that, these manufacturers also have various forms of rims inside their product line as well that are, you guessed it, not always compatible.
Sometimes the choice of basketball hoops for your home basketball court can be overwhelming. To assist you in navigating the many choices available, this list will provide you some steps to differentiate different manufacturers of basketball systems and different features available within those manufacturers.
We often get asked questions about which replacement basketball backboards go with which basketball systems. Hopefully this will be a helpful guide for you while you search.
