The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
It looks like an early version of this one. It's not an exact match but it's close.
HA! I can assure you I would never purchase a stolen basket! It was a present, brand new, from his brother (I remember when he got it) then one day he was nice enough to bring it to the park to loan it to another TD for an alternate hole location and an unsupervised child (belonging to a stranger) came bombing up and jumped INTO it like it was a jungle gym, causing the base to snap. Another guy had some scrap wood and made a makeshift base, which has lasted YEARS, but is slowly deteriorating and would be better suited sticking out of the earth. Thanks for the laugh though (literally almost blew a snot bubble trying to picture my buddy actually doing something wrong!)I wish you knew the guy I got it from, never even heard him CUSS, let alone steal, jeez, do disc golfers have that bad of a rap?
I actually saw one of thier baskets that has the weird hook/loop/nubs on the rim of the basket like mine, but it had a plate on top, which mine doesn't. Just trying to figure it out and the guy I got it from doesnt remember. Hoping maybe someone had bought one back in the day and still had it/ remembered it as the same. Thanks for replying!
Love that swastika base. Weld a similar sized fence post (or heavier gauge pipe ) about 2 feet long and dig a post hole and concrete it in. Simple.
Maybe a little Rust-o-leum while yer at it.
It's holding up good, the red chains are chipping a little but not too bad. Mostly around the bottom ring holding the chains together.
I get a blue smudge on my discs every now and then but a little magic eraser takes it right off.
I think if I had used a non-metallic base enamel for the blue it wouldn't be leaving marks on my discs. But it doesn't bother me.
The metallic kinda makes it pop, I think it just wouldnt be the same without it, maybe clearcoat would cut down on it? Does the red rub off on the white when the chains bang together?
