SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop

An indoor basketball hoop with the look, function, and durability of a professional hoop, the SKLZ Pro Mini small-scale basketball system changes the face of over-the-door basketball hoops forever. Goodbye Nerf hoops, hello realism. The Standard Pro Mini Hoop features an 18-by-12-inch clear shatterproof polycarbonate backboard, and the Pro Mini Hoop XL features a 23-by-16-inch backboard. Even better, the Pro Mini includes a pro-grade, spring-action breakaway steel rim. Want to throw it down like Dwight Howard or LeBron? The breakaway rim will snap down and back up as you jam, protecting your hands with every dunk. It's the perfect gift for the basketball freak in your family, and makes a great addition to the home, office, or dorm room. The easy-to-assemble Pro Mini--which mounts over your door or on the wall--includes foam padding on the door mounts to protect the paint and comes with a mini basketball.

Size: Standard
I bought this for myself...and I am a 31 year old man...who likes to shoot some indoor hoops during the winter when its cold and there is nothing else to do. Anyway, I hard mounted this to my wall.....it is not set up for that so you need to take the door brackets off ...and you will need a drill, washers and some wood screws, a stud finder..etc. But this thing is sweet. It is like a real hoop and the thickness of the backboard doesnt matter. i have had 5 hoops before this and this is by far the best one. It will not break even with me taking 18 footers! The only downside is the ball seems a little heavy for the hoop. I am using the ball from my old hoop that is same size but lighter material....than again, i bet it holds up to the heavy ball. Highly reccomended!

Edit: After A year and a half the hoop is STILL solid! This hoop has easily seen over 10,000 shots and it looks exactly the way it did when I got it.

Only problem......THE BALL. Why don't they make a lighter replacement ball for this thing? The ball from my old hoop that I was using has died and it is impossible to find the same one or a light one like it that still bounces! I even offered to send my old ball into them as a prototype but they never got back to me. If anyone finds a good replacement ball please let us know! Love the hoop...hate the ball ):

Hey Philip,

Thanks for the review and the feedback. We use this heavy ball to give the whole unit a "pro" type of look and feel. We are in the process of changing over to a ball that will look the same but will not be as heavy. We're also looking at coming out with a much, much lighter ball sometime in the future.

Thanks for your purchase and taking the time to review our product. Very much appreciated my friend!

13 years! That's how many years we have been buying, and re-buying indoor basketball hoops for our boys. Not one has lasted more than a few months - until now. This hoop has a strong backboard and a sturdy metal rim. Now, the rim is not a break-away style, and I assume if there is a lot of pressure or hanging on the rim, the plexiglass-type backboard could crack and/or break. But as long as their slam dunks do not get too out of control, this should last for a good long time. Extra bonus is the rubber padding on the back of the hoop and on the top hooks that hang on the door. No scratches on my front door and minimal black scuff marks after hours and hours of use. I would recommend this product to any "serious" indoor hoops player, especially those who keep buying the nerf-type hoops. It looks good, plays good and keeps my boys, and their friends, entertained during the winter months when it is too snowy or cold for them to use their outdoor hoop.

Being a basketball freak and just about all I do is basketball related in my spare time I had to purchase the SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop XL (which is the correct product name). Growing up I wish there was a product like this but all I had was the cheap NERF door-hanging mini hoops. I had seen the SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop at Sports Authority and Target, but it is hard to find the XL model. I love it so far and my son and I have had many hours of play on it in just the 4 weeks since the purchase was made. There are just a few drawbacks and suggestions I have for the makers at SKLZ: while the Clear Polycarbonate Shatter-Proof Backboard is durable and sturdy the backboard should be thicker by at least 1/8" if not more because the backboard bends when "Break-Away" Steel Rim is pulled down; the mini basketball included doesn't have the Pro Mini XL logo on it; and lastly the "Break-Away" Steel Rim is only 9" in diameter while the SKLZ Pro Mini basketball is 5 1/2" in diameter which doesn't add up to scale because any basketball player or enthusiast knows that two basketballs fit side-by-side inside of a normal basketball hoop. The people at SKLZ should have made the rim 11" in diameter if the basketball is going to be 5 1/2" in diameter, which in turns seems to make the ball appear too heavy for the rim. If this is helpful I am extremely glad, but remember I am a basketball nut so the little things matter to me. Now, if you want to have some indoor basketball fun this would be an excellent purchase.

P.S.
I wish SKLZ would send mounting material for top and bottom in order to mount it on the wall. As is mounted on the wall the top would be the only area attached. Also, the more the break-away the rim the rim becomes loose from the backboard and I have had to re-tighten the rim twice in the last month.

Hi Phillip,

Thanks for the detailed review. With this hoop, we try to make it as best as we can for customers but we almost must keep their wallets in mind too. We've tested many different hoop sizes and thickness of backboards and have found that this was the best.

As for mounting material not being included, we are looking at an upgraded hoop in the near future that would offer this. Stay tuned!

Have a good one,

Tim

My ten year old loves this basketball hoop. He plays everyday and for at least an hour. He plays while doing just about anything he can do at the same time. He dunks, he dribbles, he shoots, he scores. This is his second one, the first one was not the XL. He and his friends dunked a few too many times and the backboard broke. Believe me that it got a lot of abuse and I got my money's worth

Hey Dean,

Thanks for the positive review! If your son is playing for an hour per day, I can only imagine what types of dunks he's come up with. Be sure to check out our brand new Pro Mini Hoop Street! Then he can maybe stretch practice time to 90 minutes a day. Ha!

See ya,

Tim

It's a Nerf Hoop on crack. Love playing around on this. Recommend a four inch foam Poof 875 ball instead of the one that came with it though. It is much lighter and easier on everything else around a room. Not sure how to link to that ball on here, but you can look it up from the information that I provided.

Lasted about 6 months until the backboard cracked after rigorous almost daily use playing with my 7 yr old son.
The ball that is included is way too heavy and loud and was immediately replaced by a Little Tikes inflatable ball that works perfectly.
I made a wooden backboard and reused the rim for this setup mounting it to the wall instead of the door and got another month out of it before the welded bracket snapped where the rim is supported at the spring. In an effort of never giving up as the games between my son and I were getting more fierce at this point :).... I re purposed one of the U shaped black door brackets that was mounted on the backboard to use as the new support and mounting this to the rim and backboard!
The replacement net for this is a bit expensive as sold by the manufacturer on their website when you factor the shipping cost. I found if you use an official nylon size net (Yes I said official size) and snip the bottom 2 rows of loops it looks and works better than the original. Not to mention I was able to find online an official size nylon net that was 8x less expensive and about 10x more durable than the Skilz replacement net. This latest reincarnation has been going strong for the last few months with no issues taking the abuse of daily thunderous dunks from that of a 230lb Dad and his 7 year old son.
