July 21, 2015 - Hoop and Go Seek

Just when you think you've seen it all. Now here is a way that folks can still get in their hoops fix even under the specter of grinchy homeowners associations or in racquetball courts.

Originally manufactured for exterior use on residential properties, Auto Hoop now offers models for interior use including racquetball and squash courts. This amazing device hides behind a wall until activated. Then the “hidden” door opens and out slides the hoop. Push the button again and it hides away until the next game.

Homeowners who don't want to or can't have a basketball court on display 24/7 can now keep the hoop under wraps until needed. Racquetball and squash courts can now become basketball hoops without a permanent basketball assembly interfering with the play of the game. This gives the court owner the best of both worlds – the ability to keep all wall finishes flush in the court and the option to simply push a button to temporarily convert the space for basketball.

Just give the innovative folks at Auto Hoop a call and you'll be balling in secret in no time. Simply install, plug it in, and you're ready to go. Included in the package are the basketball backboard, breakaway rim, net, the Auto Hoop mechanical/electrical apparatus, and the wood door. Basketball and mad game sold separately.

November 21, 2013 - Trust Your Eyes

It isn't often we come across a company like this one. And if we're the first to tell you about them, we've done our duty for the week. In Bangerz Sports Eye Protection you'll find one of those rare cases where the more you dig into the what they do, the more impressed you are. It is difficult to find anything that isn't a huge positive.

We asked if they'd let us try out some of their baseball sunglasses. I have a son who is a senior in college and he's very picky about what he wears on the field. He also has Pterygiums so it is important that he wear eye shades when he's playing. Even so, I remember going to a game after having bought him an expensive pair and I see him out in center field with no glasses. After the game I asked what happened. He didn't like the way they looked.

But he loves the Bangerz. Says their the best-looking and most comfortable pair he's worn. I can tell you the visual clarity is like nothing I've seen. They're sleek, stylish and they more than do the job.

Their specialized lens filters block 100% of UVA/UVB damaging sun rays and provide top-of-the-line optics. You get extraordinary peripheral vision along with upward and downward visibility. Since noses are different, the frames have a fully adjustable form-fit, no-slip nose pad designed to be comfortable on all nose shapes. The protective back-bar on all rimless models helps avoid facial lacerations and their technology increases the contrast of a white or yellow ball against turf and sky backgrounds so you can pick up the ball better. And they are designed to allow air flow so eyes don't dry out.

Furthermore, Bangerz is committed to eye safety. One look through their website and you'll think they had backgrounds in optometry and sports medicine. They are genuinely committed to putting out a product that not only blocks the sun's rays, but also protects eyes from injury.

And they don't just only do baseball. They're the leader in protective eye wear for nearly all sports, including basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, football, softball, soccer and more.

And yet, with all of this going for them, with everything they offer in good looks, effectiveness and safety, they also hit a home run in another important area: They cost about a quarter of what the better-known guys go for. They're not trying to rip anyone off – they make a great product, price it fairly, and care about safety. How much more can you want?

So my son who either won't wear or loses the expensive sunglasses we've given him is now a walking endorsement for the value and coolness of Bangerz. He hopes to someday play pro ball. If and when he does make it to that level, he may have his choice of sunglasses to wear. But my guess is he'll stay true to his new favorite brand.
