Spalding's basketball systems are not just about the brand name, but about the features that make the system work for you. The 88454G features a 54 inch tempered glass backboard. Glass provides the most rigid shooting surface for a backboard in the market as it provides the very best rebound. The rim height is adjustable up and down using the U-Turn lift mechanism from 7.5 feet to 10 feet allowing even young players to begin enjoying the game of basketball from a very young age. This system also includes a factory warranty from Spalding ensuring you a long life of use. Order your in-ground basketball goals here.
Other Specs and Features:
Both of these systems are great for home use. However, they have 2 significant differences. First the backboard on the 88365 is acrylic and the backboard on the 88454G is tempered glass. Tempered glass provides a much better rebound compared to acrylic. Acrylic tends to hold up better to more abusive conditions (flying objects for instance). The second difference is the pole structure. The 88365 has a 3-piece pole and the 88454G has a 2-piece pole. Fewer pole pieces helps reduce movement in the system, making the system more rigid.
