While most every other consumer end basketball manufacturer does not produce a portable basketball hoop backboard larger than 54 inches, and certainly not made of glass, the Spalding model 74560 portable basketball system features a 60 inch glass backboard. Glass is a superior product to comparable backboard sizes made in acrylic or polycarbonate because glass provides you a better rebound comparable to what is used in a collegiate or even professional setting. The 60 inch backboard size gets you as close a regulation sized backboard as you can get in a portable system. The Pro-Image breakaway rim helps stand up to aggressive play.
