Goalrilla Basketball Systems and Mammoth Basketball Systems Similarities:
Goalrilla and Mammoth goals have essentially the same target market. These types of basketball hoops are high-end products for a home sports court. Both systems use either a 5×5 or 6×6 inch square steel pole; both systems use a J-Bolt anchor kits to attach the goal to the ground; both systems have glass backboards; and both have 54-inch, 60-inch, and 72-inch backboard sizes. These poles have similar grades of steel and both have limited lifetime warranties. So, the more important question to be considered are the differences.
Differences Between Goalrilla and Mammoth:
These several have several important differences. The first of these differences is the thickness of the glass backboard. All Goalrilla backboards are 3/8″ thick; whereas, Mammoth basketball backboards range in thickness from 6 mm to 8 mm (.236″ to.31″). The increased thickness in backboard provides both better rebound and more durability. Another differences is the method of height adjustment.
Both Goalrilla and Mammoth systems are height adjustable from 7.5 ft. to 10 ft. The Goalrilla uses a turn crank mechanism to adjust the height. The Mammoth system uses a squeeze handle to adjust the height. While both mechanisms are going to provide infinite adjusts in rim height, the Mammoth Rapid Cam mechanism is much easier to use. The last major difference applies to only the 60-inch backboard model.
The Goalrilla 60-inch model has a 6×6 square steel pole. The comparable Mammoth goal has a 5×5 square pole. The larger pole provides greater stability to the Goalrilla than the Mammoth goal.
On average, the Goalrilla models are going to sell for about $250 more for the same sized backboard. Both basketball goals are excellent for a home basketball court. The differences mentioned above may or may not be worth the increased cost for the Goalrilla systems. Hopefully these differences will help in your shopping research.
