Invader Portable basketball hoops have come as a boon for people who can afford a hoop but have insufficient space to play the game. This has also come as a welcome relief for large groups who love to play basketball but cannot play together because of a flimsy little reason that the place isn’t big enough. Now, all they or anybody have to do is just roll out the hoop into open space whenever they want.
This is not just great for a large group, this is also great for regular people like us who love to play but unfortunately our game is limited to the size of the yard that we play in. Those who would want to play professional basketball also will appreciate this since you can set it to the exact height that you want so that you can play a game at the professional level with equal ease.
Ever since 1996, when it was first set up, First Team has been one of the companies that have led the way in manufacture and design of them and also sports equipment. They also provide a wide array of sports equipment and one of those happens to be these amazing portable goals.
The quality of this particular goal happens to be very high. It is also not just durable but also affordable and safe for usage. So confident is the company with respect to this goal that they are providing a warranty of at least one year on this.
The features and design
This particular goal designed and manufactured by First Team is great especially for those people who have limited space and also budget. This is so well designed that it can literally be pushed just by one single person thanks to the position of the wheels.
The wheels of the goal happens to be on the front of the goal and to move it all you have to do is tip it forward and use the wheels on the front to help it roll about. When you are happy with the location of where the goal is, just set it up right. The poly base has a capacity to fill itself up with 33 gallons of water or sand, whatever you prefer.
This portable goal comes fully equipped with a clear acrylic backboard that is about 33” tall and has a width of about 44” and is designed to last for a very long time. The EZ – Crank design makes it extremely simple to adjust the height of this goal and hence can be adjusted to play at the exact height that you want to play.
All you have to do is simply turn the handle of the crank to move the backboard as well as the rim. A height decal is provided which enables you to read the height of the hoop. You can set it at 7.5”, 10” or just about any height in between.
On top the highly stable base stands a pole having a diameter of 3”. Like a lot of portable hoops, this one also comes with the pole in three pieces which can be assembled very quickly. It has a 44” backboard made up of acrylic and also a flex breakaway rim.
The net happens to be an all – weather type and true to its name, it does remain around for a long time and is definitely the right kind if you are going to be leaving the basketball goal out in your yard when not in use.
Normally putting something like this together is a two person job but the instructions are very clear on this so much so that it can be set up by just about anybody. It also saves on time due to the ease with which it can be set up.
A lot of people usually face some difficulty when it comes to changing the height of the pole. But this is exactly what the customers of the Invader portable goal happen to be impressed by. The crank mechanism makes changing the height very easy. So it offers the best of both worlds, easy portability and also smooth height adjustment.
