So what kind of baskets does everyone have at home? And does anyone have a "home made" basket? I am looking for a good portable basket to use in this little field next to my house but cannot really afford $160 right now....
We have a couple innova discatcher sports (not too bad) and a Lightning DB5 (a real nice basket). Currrently we're making 9 "homemade" baskets that are pretty close to the same dimensions as a pdga approved basket. I don't have any pics of them yet, hopefully soon.
I have a innova discatcher sport I paid 150 for it and it was a great buy, catchs putts better than other portable baskets
it's a high price but seems to hold up better than a m-14 or instep basket which didnt last to long for me
Thanks everyone... these are some really great options. I looked at the DGA M-14 and it looks like the way to go, but is it possible to add additional chains on to these? 14 chains seems like they would let some discs slip through...
If ya'll get a chance check out Troy Built's photos of his back yard, he's got 4 homemade baskets that he did himself and he said they cost him about $100.... they are pretty sweet!
If anyone else has pics I'de love to check them out!
If you can afford a DB5 ($160 & free shipping w/ a couple free discs), I recommend them. They're built pretty solid, hold up awesome outside (not a spec of rust on it), are portable and have a strong base. I added six inner chains within minutes. They're not as cool looking as a chainstar, but they're half the price.
My kids even use it!
Homemade baskets are sweet too and a lot cheaper if you have the right tools and materials.
