Pros & Cons
The Spalding 48" Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard and Rim Combo (Model: 79354 ) is a great quality product that looks great mounted on wall, rooftop or on an adjustable pole using the proper mounting bracket. This combo can be used on most Spalding/Huffy portable basketball poles and in-ground poles. The polycarbonate material used on the 79354 provides a better longevity when compared with acrylic backboards. The system also comes with a Slam Jam breakaway rim. This combo comes at a great price, with a perfect fit to existing brackets. It comes with an all-weather net.
However, some reviewers find this backboard to be flimsy. Also, the backboard does not rebound the ball very well. When ball hits the board, the bounce dies and balls just drops.
Easy to assemble and install, the Spalding 48" Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard and Rim Combo (Model: 79354 ) is a good quality and versatile product. Now you can play basketball and show your own spectacular breakaways and dunks at your home, in your driveway or backyard and enjoy the time with your family and friends.
