FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW: To many
companies (dealers) on the Internet say things to get you to
spend more money. Many stores tell customers that half inch
tempered glass plays better than 3/8 and you should spend
the extra to get the better play. This is FALSE! An
ELASTICITY TEST shows that 3/8" and 1/2" plays the same.
What is an ELASTICITY TEST? This is used to measure the flex
and give of the material. 3/8 and 1/2" tempered glass
measures the same. There is no give or flex, it's like a
brick wall that is 2 ft. thick and a brick wall that's 3 ft.
thick. The wall does not give or flex. This means the
rebound back is the same. 3/8 and 1/2 inch tempered glass
has no flex, your rebound back is the same. Buyer Beware:
spending more money to get HALF INCH tempered glass will not
improve play. If you like knowing the board is thicker and
you know it wont play better and you don't mind spending the
extra money, that's your choice.
Fact: Pro Shot Basketball will
never tell you what brand to buy, we educate the customer
telling you about all the great brands and the different
features they offer. Many great upper end systems will play
the same, they might have different looks, different
adjustments, different pricing, etc. But the end result
is many upper end systems will play the same (now that the
boards are all tempered glass), you got it, they will have
the same rebound back off the board. (Remember the
ELASTICITY TESTING?) No brands with tempered glass plays
magically better than the other (when they are 3/8-1/2 inch
FACT: There are Internet
companies telling customers that if you do not have an "H"
frame of steel (3-4 bars glued to the center of the glass)
and its not half inch, the board will SHATTER. Nice try
Internet store, trying to scare customers. No, you do not
need an "H" frame of steel bars for 3/8 or half inch
tempered glass. No, the ball will never sail through the
middle of the backboard and shatter. It may if the board is
1/8 and 1/4 inch like many low end brands (they have to have
an "H" on the cheap low end sets). These are any sets on
chintzy 4x4 poles that are $499.00-$799.00 in chain stores,
yes they are this thin and need the "H" frame. We fired, yes
fired, basketballs at 3/8 and 1/2" tempered glass from 10
mph to 60mph in the center of the glass and of course no
shattering. Many Internet stores will say all kinds of
spinning crap to scare you, to get you to buy the brand they
tell you to buy. It's a shame what store's will say to get
you to buy from them.
Last Fact: Why do brands use
the bars in the center if the glass is still thick enough?
All brands from the 80's to 2006-2007 had the boards with
acrylic for the material. Acrylic is plastic which is soft,
flimsy and dead for play. You had to have the "H" frame to
support the dead soft plastic for a decent rebound. Some
choose to keep it the same bracing when changing to the
glass for the same look, some may keep the "H" frame with
the thinking that the consumer may think its stronger (it's
the same great strength, though). It really is just
a preference for you, our customer.
The Facts on Installation Charges
All so called chain/discount stores charge their customers
$325.00-$395.00 to install basketball sets. No kidding,
$325.00-$395.00! Ouch! If you buy a set from
$200.00-$400.00, they charge you about $300.00 to install
it. Sets from $450.00-$699.00, they charge $350.00 to
install. Sets from $700.00 and up they charge
$350.00-$400.00 to install. Their theory is, the more you
spend on a set, the more you should expect to pay to have it
installed. Well, guess what? It's the same work and time
to install a small set as the big sets, so why pay more? Pro
Shot charges a flat rate on all sets from $399.00 and up.
The installation is $289.00.
Installation prices are good on sets installed within a 45
mile radius of Pro Shot’s Store.
Pro Shot's zip code is 48430.
For out of state customers purchasing basketball systems
from our store, we personally cannot offer install for you
from our employee's . However we can give you the same phone
numbers of the national assembly companies in your area.
These are the same companies that Dick's Sports, Sports
Authority and other chain store use. Please call for those
Pro Shot Basketball does not arrange or guarantee install in
your area. It is the customers responsibility to arrange for
the install. We can suggest 2-4 national assembly companies
for you to call and ask about their services and fees. The
customer would pay the install company for installation. You
do not pay Pro Shot Basketball for the install if your
install is out of the state of Michigan.
