Are you in the market for an in-ground basketball hoop? Then you must check out this awesome deal on the Silverback 60″ In-Ground Basketball System with Tempered Glass Backboard.
We just did our research on this (a very generous gift for my boys from their grandfather!) and goodness, they are expensive.
Although we already ordered a different company’s hoop, this is an INCREDIBLY AWESOME deal — good today only, and WHILE SUPPLIES last. If you’ve been shopping around, I definitely think you should take this one seriously.
Amazon has the 4.7 out of 5-stars Silverback 60″ In-Ground Basketball System with Tempered Glass Backboard for its lowest ever price.
You will need to click through as this is a one-day only deal (while supplies last) and the widget is not updated with the correct price.
If you still see it for $499.99, that means the deal is still “live” and you’re all set.
Here’s what I think is so awesome about this one, based on the research my husband did for ours:
* It has amazing reviews — especially at a very, very low (relatively) price point. These systems are usually $1000 – $2000, so to get one for under $500 is pretty unheard of.
* There are not a lot of short-cuts — even though this is a lower price, it still has a lot of amazing features, including:
* 60-inch backboard (we compromised and got a 54″ on ours, to save a few hundred dollars!)
* Break-away rim — I’m not basketball expert, but my husband said that this is really important for kids who want to “dunk”
* Comes with pole and backboard pads – this is a huge deal. The Goal-zilla company charges an extra $150 for these, and here they are included for free!
* DuPont rust-protection powder coating — again, a lot of the other companies charge extra for this; here it is included
* Can be adjusted from 7.5′ to 10′ (good for kids as they grow)
I’ll be honest that ours cost quite a bit more and there are three main benefits that ours has over this one — which, frankly, if I had known that this was going to go so low in price, I might have told my husband (the main researcher on this purchase) that it wasn’t worth it:
1. Ours has a lifetime warranty vs. a 5-year one on this one
2. Ours has a 5.5 x 5.5 inch pole (vs. 4 x 4 inch on this one)
3. Our adjusts from 5 feet up to 10 feet (rather than 7.5 feet up to 10 feet) – my husband liked this for our 6 year old, but it’s definitely not essential – and again, this one is a lot less!
Not only that, but this comes with FREE scheduled delivery (you want it scheduled – the thing is huge and comes in multiple boxes… assembly IS required!).
Hope some of you can take advantage of this awesome deal!
