Silverback SB-60 In-Ground Basketball System8.5/10

Once again the manufacturers at Escalade deliver a high quality basketball system at an affordable price. This system is ideal for recreational use, and perfect for any family looking to install a hoop into their driveway or backyard. Durable weather resistant DuPont paint covers the pole, and zinc coated hardware, along with powder coating 18” up the base mean that you will have some serious competitive fun for years to come.

The swedged two piece pole systems give near identical stability, shock absorption, and safety to that of other pricey single pole systems. Professional grade 8 millimeter thick glass adds to the safety of an already ideal home basketball system. Besides the breakaway rim and shatter resistant glass, Escalade Sports has also added a piece of thick padding along the pole to assure you that any hits will be cushioned and safe.

What We Like About This Hoop

  • Swedged Pole design offers great support and safety that reflects most single pole systems
  • Weather resistant hardware and pole add to the life of the product
  • Backboard padding included
  • Several added features add to the safety of the system and the players involved, making this one of the best hoops for any typical American family.

What Would Make This Hoop Better

  • Two and a half feet overhang is less than some other more premium hoop options that feature four feet of overhang

For most American families, the Silverback SB-60 In-Ground Basketball Hoop is one of the best available hoops on the market. The price is extremely fair for the quality of product you will get, and due to Escalade Sports long lasting history as a source of trusted and reliable sports equipment; you know that you are getting what you pay for. The safety features and weather resistance all add to making this a solid in-ground home basketball system for your family.
