MY REVIEW

Pro Mini Hoop

sklz pro mini basketball hoop review

We love basketball. Boyd and I both played in high school, and Elliot was born right in the middle of March Madness, so we spent 4 days (I had a C-section) watching basketball in the hospital. It was fabulous! Except for the part about recovering from major surgery.

Boyd doesn’t get to play nearly as much as he’d like, so the Pro Mini Hoop is PERFECT for him! According to all the guys at the office, this mini hoop is the best one they’ve seen, and I would have to agree.

The rim is really metal and has a spring underneath for some awesome break-away action. It’s more forgiving so sometimes you can get a bouncer to fall, which is really nice…and bring on the dunks!

It’s just right for mini players too. Elliot and Gus both had a great time playing with their dad and the ball is just the right size for their little hands. This is how we’re going to get them both dunking before they can read!

The Pro Mini Hoop really is the luxury over-the-door basketball hoop version and such a great gift idea for Dads this Father’s Day as it’s perfect for the office!

Accelerator Pro

sklz accelerator pro review

Boyd’s newest sporty hobby is golf, and all golfers know how important putting is to your game.

The Accelerator Pro indoor putting practice mat has 7′, 5′, and 3′ putts marked and a ball return device so your hubby or dad can practice all day long. Or at least on his lunch breaks…

The surface of this mat replicates a real golf course so your practice will feel the same as the real thing. It’s designed to be uphill at the end so your golfer can give it just enough muscle to not fall short and all the markings make it super easy to see if your ball is going straight. A few weeks on this thing and Dad will be a pro!

With the Pro Mini Hoop and the Accelerator Pro, I might need to be worried about how much work my husband is actually getting done…at least his shot and his putt will be right on!

I haven’t heard of his company before. They have some pretty cool things my husband would love! I want to get him the pitching machine. Great giveaway by the way :)

I love their Hit-a-way PTS…I think it looks like a fun way to practice batting. My husband totally needs the putter practice mat…..he loves to golf but stinks at putting! =)

22 Kimberly R June 15, 2010 at 6:26 pm

The putting mat is so awesome. My husband would love to be able to practice putting in his spare time – might even teach me to golf – lol. I married a wonderful man who has been a great father to two grown children – never failed to tell them how much he loved them – I admire that about him.

My husband is an avid golfer, but due to the rainy stretch of weather he hasn’t been able to get out to the greens. The indoor golfing combo would be perfect for him because he could practice inside and enjoy beefing up his golf skills. I think he is also very deserving because although he isn’t a daddy yet, we are expecting in October. I think a gift like this would be that more memorable for him…kinda like a “father-to-be” father’s day gift!

41 Danilo De Souza June 18, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Great stuff. I have tried the accelerator and it is addictive. It is great to take a break at the office or at home and still practice my golf skills. Tiger Woods better watch his back! I was going to by one for myself but after I found out about this give away, I decided to wait. Peace!

42 Milcah June 18, 2010 at 10:01 pm

I really like the basketball goal. My hubby should win because he wants to take this to work and be a show- off ( i don’t see where I said which is my favorite or why my hubby should win.
