Spalding 66XX1 54 inch Portable Basketball System With Angled Base.

The Bottom Line: Introducing the new Hercules base made by Spalding. This basketball system is manufactured for 2014. We are excited about this basketball system as it has been redesigned to last longer, look nicer, and withstand the elements better. It features a 54 inch acrylic backboard. Unlike the louder polycarbonate backboards, this solid board is much quieter and has a superior rebound. The pole leans forward for stability and includes a rebounder at the base. The large 35 gallon base can be filled with water or sand to maximize stability. The base also includes wheels in the front for portability. The rim includes a breakaway spring to allow slam dunking.

Whether your kids are involved actively in recreational basketball, junior high basketball, or high school basketball, this acrylic basketball system 66XX1 is perfect for outside practice. Most driveways have smaller backboards and include polycarbonate composition. With the acrylic backboard you are playing on the material considered to be the next best option to tempered glass.

Preorders will begin on December 20, 2013.

Q: Is this better than polycarbonate?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 10:36:32 AM
A: Polycarbonate and acrylic have a unique tradeoff. Polycarbonate is a material that is much stronger than acrylic and many customers choose polycarbonate for that reason. However, polycarbonate is much louder than acrylic and acrylic is unlikely to break anyway. In fact, you cannot break acrylic by playing basketball. You could break it with a slingshot, BB gun, or other high impact vandalism. Under those circumstances, polycarbonate is likely to hold up better. Acrylic is the best thing next to tempered glass

Q: How long does assembly take?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 10:36:31 AM
A: Assembly generally takes about three hours with two people. Spalding has a new app on the iTunes Store that assists with assembly and walks you through it. This model is not yet included, but it should be soon. The app is free, so please check to see whether they have added this model.

Q: What is so special about the new Hercules base?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 10:36:29 AM
A: The new Hercules base has been completely redesigned to add stability, but more specifically to ensure that the basketball system arrives to your doorstep undamaged. The poles fit inside the base and allow the packaging to fit the parts in a way that is extremely unlikely to be damaged in transit. The Hercules base on most models even comes in different colors.

Q: Should I feel the Hercules base with water or sand?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 10:36:28 AM
A: That is a very common question. Most people fill it up with water, but doing so requires that you keep an eye on the basketball system in extreme windy weather conditions. 75 mph could potentially tip this over along with the trampoline blowing down the street. Filling it with sand is the surest way to ensure that it will never fall over-even very unlikely in extreme micro burst whether.
