These two goals are both geared up with the features that make Goalrilla Goals so popular.
They both come standard with:
- One piece 10’ steel post w/ welded gussets at the base
- Dupont powder coated paint & corrosion resistant hardware
- 3/8” tempered glass backboard w/ aluminum frame & full parameter steel support frame & lifetime warranty,
- Medium weight pro style flex breakaway rim
- Welded board arms for maximum strength
- All steel actuator allowing adjustment of the rim from 7’1/2- 10’
- Anchor bolt mounting system allowing owners to take their goal with them when they relocate
The GS60C backboard has a slightly wider design and the GSIII backboard has a taller design. Both boards are similar in square inches. The GS III design is often preferred due to the increased shooting surface above the rim, an area that gets much more play then the outer sides of the backboard.
Goalrilla Goals are available in three distinctive lines of goals based on quality & performance. The economy Goalrilla Goals are usually sold through big box stores & major retail sporting goods stores. The standard & premium Goalrilla Goals are typically sold though specialty dealers. For the savvy basketball player the differences are obvious and well worth the extra investment.
The GS60c falls into the economy class of goals where the Goalrilla III falls into the standard class of Goalrilla’s with the main difference being: the thickness of steel “beefiness” of the goal, the reinforced backboard, the 3ft rim overhang from the baseline -vs- the economy goals that only have 2 ½ ft overhangs. The differences although minor make the GSIII preferred 50 to 1 by our customers according to Basketballgoalstore.com owner Brad Riley who offers both goals to customers but rarely sells the GS60C with 2 ½ ft rim overhang due to safety and poor playability.
Suggested retail of these two goals is typically the same. The difference is that people who buy the economy 2 ½ ft. overhang GS60C usually call back later to an order post pad for an additional $175.00 to $295.00. That’s not the case with the GSIII. So in summary my vote for the best goal for the money between the GS60C and the GSIII is the GSIII.
