SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop

By Ted Bishop

Indoor basketball hoops have come a long ways since the Nerf hoop you had as a child. And no one has mastered this domain quite like SKLZ with their Pro Mini Hoop. A high-end backboard is just the beginning as the hoop is extremely easy to assemble and everything is well thought out (padding to avoid door scrapes, etc.) for indoor use. But the real beauty lies in the durability. These hoops can take a beating from the highest fliers in your household. We gave their new glow-in-the-dark version a test run, but had mixed results as our test location didn't have enough sun to get the glow we had hoped. However, the $27.99 price makes it a great value even if the glow-in-the-dark paint doesn't work for the area you are using it in.
