Goalrilla GS54 Basketball Goal Backboard

The Goalrilla GS54 and the Silverback 60″ In-Ground Basketball Hoop with Adjustable-Height Tempered Glass Backboard and Pro-Style Breakaway Rim (Silverback SB60) are both quality goals manufactured by Escalade Sports, but they do have several notable differences. As we begin to make some comparisons, it’s important to keep in mind that the Goalrilla system is designed to be a higher end goal, so in general, it is bigger and stronger. Goalrilla goals are intended to provide a regulation-like playing experience. Let’s examine some of the main differences. Goalrilla GS54

The NEW Goalrilla CV basketball goal with STBLZR Technology is redefining performance for residential hoops. Available in both 60” and 72” backboard sizes, STBLZR Technology significantly reduces the “shake” of a basketball goal after a dunk or rebound and completely stabilizes the backboard of the goal at regulation height. After a shock to the goal, some units will violently shake for up to a minute before coming to a rest. STBLZR Technology returns the hoop to its static, resting position quickly, allowing players to maximize practice time and stay focused on skill development. Utilizing the same technology used to eliminate… Read more »

In Part 1 of our Basketball Court Building Guide we looked at the early planning stages of installing a basketball court and the various playing surfaces. In this article, we’ll examine the different size options for your basketball court. The size you choose to make your court will depend on the amount of available space and desired playing experience. Half Court Not quite sure if you need a full-court? Half-courts require less space, digging, surfacing, and one less basketball goal. They’re a nice addition without losing the space taken up by a full-court. Half Court (Narrow) A modified half-court still… Read more »

Backboard Pad for the Goalrilla DC72E1

Congratulations! You’ve finally decided you need a basketball hoop to make your suburban dream home complete! But there are so many choices out there…how will you ever choose?! One of the most important things you will need to consider is what size backboard you will need for your new basketball court. Backboard sizes vary in width from 48” wide all the way up to 72”, but for the sake of regular game play we recommend choosing backboard no smaller than 54” wide. Anything narrower than this measurement won’t allow the player to perform bank shots at all! Play Like the… Read more »

The Goalrilla installation always seems more daunting than it really is. The hardest part is digging the hole. The hole will be 4’ deep and about 18” around. There is no need for an auger, it can be dug by hand with a pair of post hole diggers. It is important that your anchor is installed correctly and at the proper depth to ensure that you are below the frost line and there is enough concrete weight to offset the weight of the goal. If you can dig the hole correctly, your work should be downhill from there. Be sure to  consult… Read more »

Goalrilla Vs Pro Dunk

So, you’re in the market for a residential basketball goal and can’t decide which brand is going to give you the best performance and quality for your money. Today, we’re going to give a comparison of Goalrilla vs Pro Dunk Hoops basketball hoop systems. Goalrilla dates back to 1995, as does Pro Dunk Hoops.

Pro Dunk Goalrilla Pole Height & Strength Shorter, thicker pole. General consensus is that this increases the length… Read more »

So, I was looking through some older photos that we had from the early Goalrilla days and I found an interesting one. This was a customer that had evidently purchased a Goalrilla goal from us years ago. Evidently, there had been a huge storm that had knocked down one of their old growth trees. As this tree was falling, it had actually fallen squarely on top of one of our Goalrilla goals, effectively hammering it into the ground about a foot or so. You can actually see from the picture of the anchor, how deep the anchoring system has actually… Read more »

Netting containment systems have been popular with Goalrilla owners for years. Nets keep the basketball out of the street, out of your flower garden, out of the neighbor’s bay window and out of the poison ivy at the bottom of the hill. You maximize your playing time by keeping the ball on the court. More practice means better skill retention. But with the convenience of a netting containment system also came some complaints. Some of our customer’s didn’t like nets that came out onto court or required concrete anchors to be poured in their lawns. Some didn’t like nets that… Read more »
