The Key Differences Between PROview and PROforce Hoops
February 8, 2024
When it comes to choosing the perfect basketball hoop for your home, it’s important to consider the key differences between various models. Superior Play Systems offers two exceptional options — the PROview and PROforce hoops. Take a look at the distinct features and specifications of both models, to help you make an informed decision.
The PROview hoop is equipped with a 1/2-inch thick safety tempered glass backboard, ensuring excellent durability and minimal vibrations during play. On the other hand, the PROforce hoop features a slightly thinner 3/8-inch thick safety tempered glass backboard. The difference in glass thickness can affect the overall sturdiness and performance of the hoop.
For ultimate stability and strength, the PROview hoop boasts a 7-gauge steel thickness. This robust construction offers exceptional rigidity, allowing for intense play without worrying about the hoop’s stability. In contrast, the PROforce hoop features an 11-gauge steel thickness, which, although not as thick as the PROview, still provides considerable durability and support.
Lift Assist Mechanism
The PROview comes with a convenient Power Arc 90® Lift Assist mechanism. This innovative feature enables easy height adjustment by reducing the weight of the hoop, allowing players of all ages and strengths to effortlessly raise or lower the hoop to their desired height. On the other hand, the PROforce hoop utilizes a heavy-duty single cylinder 90º crank handle for height adjustment. While still practical, the PROforce lift mechanism may require more effort to operate compared to the smoother, Power Arc 90® Lift Assist of the PROview.
Height Range and Overhang
The PROview hoop offers a height range of 6-10 feet, accommodating players of various ages and skill levels. Additionally, at 10 feet, the PROview overhangs from 3 to 4 feet, providing ample space under the backboard. In contrast, the PROforce hoop has a height range of 7.5 to 10 feet and overhangs from 2.5 to 3 feet at 10 feet height. Consider your preferences and the intended users when deciding which height range and overhang suits your needs.By understanding the key differences between the PROview and PROforce hoops, you can make an informed decision based on your specific requirements.
