The majority of the deals I put together for my customers are for multi-unit purchases. Given that, I can negotiate better shipping rates from the various freight carriers, Yellow, FedEx, SAIA.
Private consumer orders and single-unit orders are welcome and encouraged! You'll get the same great unit price and the lowest possible cost on freight.
DON'T BE FOOLED by system pricing that includes FREE freight. I can beat those prices.
WHAT'S MOST COMMON?
Hands down the RuffNeck System; in-ground, fixed-height, is the most cost-effective for public, outdoor use. 20-year warranty, nice board size, very cost-effective. RuffNeck systems ship for as little as $110 depending on location. RuffNeck systems ship for as little as $110 depending on location.
For a little nicer looking system with a bit more functionality, consider the Legend and the Legend Jr.
Adjustable Height: You can't go wrong with any. Most cost-effective is the Attack System but the move up to the Force System or Titan System gets you not only larger board size options, but also the Lifetime Superior Warranty.
Portables: The Fury System is the most commonly sold system to church groups and youth groups, and any organization type where you know, more or less, who's going to play on it. It's heavy enough for aggressive adult play and more than stable enough for youth play. Lifetime Limited Warranty covers everything basketball related, including dunking, but not the SHAQ hang on the rim gorilla slam.
For aggressive play or high-level competition play, go up to the Storm System or Thunder System. They are heavier so can support a larger board (glass) and they come with a Lifetime Superior Warranty. Everything is covered.
