Feature and Specifications :

What we really liked about this portable basketball system is how strong it really happens to be. This comes through Silverback’s “Stabili-Frame” technology.

Assembly

One of the biggest pain points when it comes to recreational basketball hoops is the amount of time and effort assembly can take.  Often times assembly requires several hours and several people to put together a hoop, which is then further complicated by directions that are lacking in clarity.The Silverback NXT Portable Hoop has you covered if you don’t want to spend hours upon hours assembling. A real advantage of the Silverback NXT Basketball Hoop is that it comes with several pre-assembled parts and full assembly is said to only take 90 minutes. This NXT hoop only takes 90 minutes to assemble, but there have been some buyers that claim it took them longer despite being fairly handy.  Either way, this portable basketball hoop should take you less time to put together than most others

Backboard

For us the most radical change from other portable hoops and the Silverback NXT is the infinity backboard. The actual support braces are connected directly to the four corners of the backboard, which works to increase stability and limit vibrations.  Early users report that this unique design does in fact improve stability for such a nimble basketball system.

Users also have mentioned that the Silverback NXT Portable Hoop is also significantly quieter to other portable basketball systems. The backboard itself is not much different than typical portable basketball hoops.  For the Silverback NXT Portable Basketball System, the backboard comes in either 50 or 54 inches and is made from acrylic.  Acrylic as we’ve mentioned in our ultimate hoop buying guide is a good mid-level backboard material.

Rim Quality

This portable basketball hoop’s height is adjustable from 7.5 feet to 10 feet in increments of six inches.  Having a quality rim on a portable basketball hoop is obviously an important feature since this is the most utilized piece of a basketball system.  The Silverback NXT Portable Basketball Hoop has a mid-level spring loaded rim that has a light-duty cover. This portable basketball hoop’s height is adjustable from 7.5 feet to 10 feet in increments of six inches.  The actual adjustment range is pretty standard among portable basketball hoops, but many other similarly priced hoops can be adjusted in infinite increments.

Pros 

The real advantage that you receive with this particular basketball hoop is its overall weight. The total goal weight of this system is 175 pounds and that is before you add any weight to the base. This will give you a chance to keep the basketball goal up throughout most of the season without needing to worry about it tipping over. Many portable units require a lot of maintenance to make sure they can stay usable. We found our time with this system required little maintenance, even with height adjustments, allowing us to focus on the fun we could have instead. Biggest advantage is flеxіbіlіtу for height аdjuѕtmеnt. It has fastest assembly fоr any роrtаblе bаѕkеtbаll hоор.

This hoops has excellent backboard. This backboard has excellent rebound and very lіttlе mоvеmеnt fоr a роrtаblе. Its infinity backboard design is unique and does make the acrylic backboard perform better than other similar hoops. Its inѕtruсtіоnѕ are very thorough and parts аrе nicely packaged аnd labeled. Good news is that thіѕ system соmеѕ wіth a wіndеr, whісh lеtѕ уоu set thе hoop just where you want іt. You also get a 7-уеаr wаrrаntу оn thе product. It has a unіquе іnfіnіtу bасkbоаrd dеѕіgn thаt uѕеѕ flаngіng tо mаkе backboard more durаblе. A great advantage of  moving the basketball hoop around is relatively simple with the ergonomic design of the base, giving you a replicated wheelbarrow action. The total overhang of this basketball goal is 26 inches, giving most players a lot more room underneath the basket to work.

Cons

The biggest disadvantage is its rim is pretty average quality. Its prісе іѕ a bit mоrе еxреnѕіvе thаn ѕіmіlаr роrtаblе bаѕkеtbаll hоорѕ. NXT hoop is heavy as compared to other hoops. Its assembly time is too longer as compared to other hoops. In this high price we would like to see a higher quality rim.
