We find that the Silverback NXT Portable Basketball Hoop is the best portable basketball hoop in the 50-inch category.

Backboard Size

This is a larger, 50-inch x 33-inch backboard that has a generous 26-inch offset, allowing for a lot of play beneath the net.

Backboard Material

The Silverback uses a proprietary design that includes the Infinity Edge Backboard. This has wrapped edges that keep everything clean and provides unparalleled strength. Using flanging ensures the face of the backboard offers immense rebound. Made of a polycarbonate, it’s also shatterproof.

Pole

The 3.5-inch diameter steel pole offers immense stability. Unlike its competitors, this pole connects directly to the steel frame within the base. That means a much stronger and more stable structure.

Adjustable Hoop

The Silverback model features a lot of unique and trademarked design elements, especially around the hoop and the base. The Easy Slide Actuator on the pole allows you to adjust the height of the hoop with one hand--taking it from 7-foot 5-inch to ten feet in seconds.

Base Design/Stability

The base integrates a long list of innovative tech. There’s a rear kickstand to ensure you never lose control of the unit as you’re moving it. The ErgoMove tech allows for unique weight distribution resulting in one of the easiest to roll and move units. It also has immense stability when it’s placed into position.

The Stabili-Frame uses a slanted pole design that creates a low center of gravity that gives a tremendous degree of stability--much more than most other portable basketball hoops.

Hoop Style

This unit is equipped with a standard hoop made of 5/8-inch steel and ½-inch steel rings. Plus, it’s powder coated and painted for years of weather resistance and performance.

Type of Net

A traditional, nylon and weather resistant net comes with this unit.

Warranty

Sadly, there’s no information available about a warranty for the Silverback.
