Fun for everyone, May 4, 2010
This basketball hoop is a smaller version of a real basketball hoop. It is very well made and the whole family has a blast playing together.
Awesome for the grown man, April 8, 2010
I bought one of these to put in my office and think I might be another one for my house. The ball is a real rubber mini ball that has a nice bounce to it. It is loud, especially coming off the spring loaded rim, but it gives it a better feel. The one thing I REALLY love about this is that the board is clear, which means you can buy window decals (and place them safely behind the board) to customize the board to represent your favorite team. This looks real slick. No one questions why a grown man has a mini-hoop in his office. Everyone who comes in just thinks it's cool.
The Perfect Sturdy Mini Hoop, April 7, 2010
I have nothing bad to say about this mini hoop. After years of buying cheap nerf hoops, I finally decided to invest in a sturdy one. The rim spring-back feature is nice when dunking on it. The rim is also made of metal so it won't sag or break like a plastic one would do. The backboard has foam on the back to protect your door and minimizes sound from the ball bouncing off of it. The hoop also has two clamps to hold it onto the door instead of one which increases the sturdiness of the hoop. The only thing that could make it better would be a thicker backboard but the current one will do. A great investment and I recommend this to anyone that is looking to upgrade from a plastic/nerf mini hoop.
Fun basketball hoop for the office!, March 13, 2010
We bought this basketball hoop for our office. For the most part it is exactly what you would want for a fun way to pass the time...couple of negatives...
- the over the door hanger is too thick for most doors to close when the hoop is hanging on them. we tried to use it over the door, but just didn't work because we wanted to actually be able to close the door.
- unless you are kobe bryant or michael jordan, you will miss from time to time, and if you miss and the ball hits a wall or door, it will leave marks. we bought a different type of ball and we have no marks. :)
