The First Team Ruffneck Extreme is one of the best fixed-height basketball systems available today with its durable construction and a price that fit any budget.
The pole system is made of schedule 40 tubing, measuring 4½” in diameter with weather-resistant galvanization. The post is designed so that it can be buried 48″ below the playing surface for a strong hold, also allowing for a 48” clearance from post to backboard. Using First Team’s nose-cone backboard mounting design, the rim is installed through the backboard and directly connects to the vertical post, reducing the amount of stress on the backboard. This mount permanently locks the cone to the post with a through-bolt allowing easy, stable mounting. The standard backboard for this unit is 36″ x 60″, composed of 10-gauge steel and finished with a white powder coat and the official orange shooters square. The powder coated orange rim is composed of high strength steel, fully welded in at least 6 places. Either a chain or nylon net can be attached to the rim using the continuous net locking system. This durable system weighs 290 lbs.
First Team’s Ruffneck Basketball Systems come with a lifetime limited warranty for the vertical pole, backboard and standard rim.
