90061 vs 90176

The 90061 and 90176 are very similar both with 52" backboard, 3.5" round poles, portable bases, and easy adjustment mechanisms. There are two minor differences. The 90061 has the newest adjustment mechanism that allows adjustment from the front and back. The 90176 adjusts from the back only. This is a minor difference as most customers don't mind adjusting from the front or back. They are both very easy to adjust and can be done by a 10 year old child. The other minor difference are the graphics on the backboard. The black lines on the 90061 are a bit thicker. The difference is minor and can basically only be told if they are side-by-side. There is no difference in how the basketball systems play as far as the rebound and bank shots are concerned.
