    I bought this for myself…and I am a 31 year old man…who likes to shoot some indoor hoops during the winter when its cold and there is nothing else to do. Anyway, I hard mounted this to my wall…..it is not set up for that so you need to take the door brackets off …and you will need a drill, washers and some wood screws, a stud finder..etc. But this thing is sweet. It is like a real hoop and the thickness of the backboard doesnt matter. i have had 5 hoops before this and this is by far the best one. It will not break even with me taking 18 footers! The only downside is the ball seems a little heavy for the hoop. I am using the ball from my old hoop that is same size but lighter material….than again, i bet it holds up to the heavy ball. Highly reccomended!

    Edit: After A year and a half the hoop is STILL solid! This hoop has easily seen over 10,000 shots and it looks exactly the way it did when I got it.

    Only problem……THE BALL. Why don’t they make a lighter replacement ball for this thing? The ball from my old hoop that I was using has died and it is impossible to find the same one or a light one like it that still bounces! I even offered to send my old ball into them as a prototype but they never got back to me. If anyone finds a good replacement ball please let us know! Love the hoop…hate the ball ):

    Hey Philip,

    Thanks for the review and the feedback. We use this heavy ball to give the whole unit a “pro” type of look and feel. We are in the process of changing over to a ball that will look the same but will not be as heavy. We’re also looking at coming out with a much, much lighter ball sometime in the future.

    Thanks for your purchase and taking the time to review our product. Very much appreciated my friend!

    -Tim

    13 years! That’s how many years we have been buying, and re-buying indoor basketball hoops for our boys. Not one has lasted more than a few months – until now. This hoop has a strong backboard and a sturdy metal rim. Now, the rim is not a break-away style, and I assume if there is a lot of pressure or hanging on the rim, the plexiglass-type backboard could crack and/or break. But as long as their slam dunks do not get too out of control, this should last for a good long time. Extra bonus is the rubber padding on the back of the hoop and on the top hooks that hang on the door. No scratches on my front door and minimal black scuff marks after hours and hours of use. I would recommend this product to any “serious” indoor hoops player, especially those who keep buying the nerf-type hoops. It looks good, plays good and keeps my boys, and their friends, entertained during the winter months when it is too snowy or cold for them to use their outdoor hoop.

    The SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop is a well-designed and well-executed product.
    – 3 bolts to afix the hoop to the backboard. (2 bolts probably insufficient, imposing too much stress on the acrylic backboard. 4 bolts probably overkill, adding to cost, manufacturing precision requirements for matching up holes, and adding time/difficulty for user to assemble parts.)
    – Comes with everything that you need to assemble the backboard, including a small wrench to tighten the bolts. Simple, painless assembly. (Caution: Do not overtorque the bolts. There’s really no advantage to tightening the bolts too much, because the included lock nuts will hold securely. However, overtightening the bolts may induce stress fractures.)
    – Good attention-to-detail on net and hoop hook points. Looks nice and works even better.
    – Foam backing thoughtfully hidden behind backboard border stripes, so that it doesn’t detract from the clean appearance of the clear acrylic backboard.
    – All metal parts have a good “heft” to them. The springloaded hoop is designed to give under pressure. BUILT TO LAST!
    – Fits nicely over my son’s bedroom door. It’s a tight fit to close the door, so we don’t usually close the door – except when we’re trying to avoid disturbing Mommy. (Well … not disturb her TOO much. 😉
    – At a price point of just over twenty bucks, this is an excellent value.

    The only thing that I don’t like about this product is the ball. Oh, it is a very high quality ball – one that could be dribbled on a hardwood floor for some serious hoops, just like a regulation ball. However, inside the home, it’s too heavy, too loud, and (potentially) too damaging to walls, windows, and anything else that gets in the way of the errant projectile. I’d much prefer it if the manufacturer provided a NERF ball, instead. Although foam balls can’t be dribbled, we’re just interested in shooting baskets.

    Bottom line: The SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop is an excellent, quality product. Highly recommended for kids of all ages (including adults!), who like to shoot indoor hoops. Plan on separately purchasing a foam ball (5″ diameter would be ideal, 4″ diameter will suffice), if safety and sanity are a high priority in your family.

    P.S. If you’d like to see what the product looks like in action, just log onto YouTube and search for “Sklz Mini Hoop”. There are dozens of clips available.

    Hi Robert,

    If I could give stars for your review I would have given it a “7”! Thanks for taking the time and saying so many nice things about our product. Very much appreciated sir!

    Always be on the lookout for the “Pro Mini Hoop Challenge” that we hold every year. I have a feeling that you must throw down like Blake Griffin treating that Kia like a Micro Machine! BOOM!

    Thanks,

    Tim
