TIPS FOR BUYING Basketball Backboard Systems:

When it comes to basketball, the sport is fast paced and aggressive. The equipment used in basketball gets a lot of abuse over time, whether you are a recreational player or a professional one. Fortunately for basketball players, if any one part of the basketball hoop system becomes damaged the individual part can be replaced, whether you are talking about the pole, the rim or the backboard.


If you are interested in replacing your basketball backboard, you need to know a few things. For example, the dimensions that you want to use. If you already were using a backboard but were unhappy with the shot support received from the backboard, then you may want to go larger. Basketball backboards are available from 40 to 72 inches. 40 to 60 inches are your typical home sizes and 72 inches is regulation. The rule for basketball backboards is that the bigger the backboard the easier it is to make a shot.


Basketball backboards are also available in a couple of different thicknesses. Regulation is 1/2” thick, for home use; however, you should determine the thickness based on your need and amount of use it will receive. The thicker the backboard is, the longer it will last and the more durable it will be. However, affordability will most likely play a big part in your purchase, especially for a home purchase, and the thinner the board (as well as the smaller) the less expensive it will be.


We offer basketball backboards in a variety of materials. Glass is typically used in professional sports for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it looks professional, secondly it is more durable than other options, and thirdly it allows for fans to see the ball in play through the backboard without having to adjust their positions to see around the backboard.


Other materials available for our basketball backboards are acrylic, tempered glass, plastic, aluminum, steel, and fiberglass. Each one of these materials has their own merit for basketball players. Most decisions are made about materials based on durability and affordability. Using the different kinds of materials while playing basketball will often make it easier for you to make your decision when the time comes.


When choosing your shape you have two choices, either rectangular or fan shaped. Each one has their own benefits. The rectangular shape is best for making shots and improving free throw and other shooting skills. The fan shaped is typical for a home setting, this is because it is much more affordable than the rectangular shaped. However, if your game is already good, then the fan shape will do fine for practicing.


Whether you are purchasing a backboard to replace a broken one, or you are looking for an upgrade, you are sure to find what you need here. There is a backboard for every budget and for every situation, whether for serious play or for recreation. Choose the right size and materials based on your needs, your support equipment (such as the pole) and your budget and you will be happy with your purchase.
