Q: I am also trying to compare Spalding Model 68454 with 71454A, does the angled pole provide better stability or offset from the base? Or does the 4" steel pole and (what appears to be) wider supports on the Spalding Model 68454 provide a sturdier platform? If they are all the same, then why does the 71454A cost more??
Asked by: Mweston - 10/29/2017
A: Without question 68454 is the more stable of the two. However, it is currently out of stock until the end of November. The pricing on it is simply better, because there is a better promotion right now.

A: I contacted Spaulding customer support and asked them about the 71454A vs 68454. They stated the basketball backboard and rim are the same with the 2 units.
The difference being the base and positioning of the pole. The 71454A is at an angle while the 68454 is straight vertical. The size of the poles are the same for both units.
The 71454A has 4 inch round vs the 68454 has a 4 inch square. The CSR mentioned that the 68454 may be more unstable since it is completely vertical it may be prone to tipping than the 71454A. The main reason the 71454 is more attractive is that it can become more mobile if needed. You can fill the tank with water and remove the rocks or sands that are in bags in the above compartment to move the unit. One thing I noticed is the 71454 is a newer design and listed in the 2018 catalog while the 68454 is not listed. The 71454 is the closest I can find to the “The Beast” without spending the $1K+ for that goal. I personally ended up going with the 71454A and will post a review once it’s installed and tested.

Q: I'm trying to decide which Basketball system to buy between the Spalding 71454a Hybrid base with 4 inch round pole which is a slanted pole or Spalding 68454 system with 4 inch Square pole and is upright. They are both priced very close which you factor in shipping on the 68454 model ($690.). Shipping is fee on the 71454A Model. Least amount of rim movement is desired ?
Asked by: Mike B. - 8/9/2017
A: They both have the same rim, but the 68454 is more popular and ordered most often, but it also runs out of stock more quickly.

Q: Since the Spalding 68454 is 190 lbs and the Spalding 71454A is only 153 lbs does this mean the heavier one is of a better grade of steel ? Should this weight difference matter ?
Asked by: Mike B. - 8/9/2017
A: The weight difference is just due to the different pole shapes, the steel grade is the same.

Q: I need a system that is portable. When not in use, I need to store it in our garage. Is there a way to determine the weight of the system when tipped down (above my head), to determine the difficulty of moving? Or is there a weight advantage in going with Acrylic version? Thank you!
Asked by: Tpj - 3/23/2016
A: This is very difficult to move, because of the size. The only way to move it is to remove half of the weight from the base and then tilted forward. It is not very convenient. This goal is portable in the sense that it is not permanent, but it is not designed to be moved each time you use it from the garage to the street or driveway. It would become quite the pain for you. A smaller model might be more convenient, but even on the intermediate models you have to drain half of the water to tilted onto the wheels-then you move in place, then you add water.

Answer provided by:  Customer Service (3/23/2016)
A: Thank you. Yes, that is why I was interested in the hybrid base, to make the moving easier each time versus draining water. With that being said in regards to mobility, is there any advantage, in terms of lesser weight, in going with the acrylic?

Q: Why does the base have 2 pieces?
Asked by: Customer - 3/3/2016
A: Being 2 pieces allows you to add both sand and water-extra weight basically.
