The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So I've taken matters into my own hands now that it's time to fill my own course with baskets.  I looked everywhere on line and the cheapest baskets are made of plastic!  Just waiting to break when I drive to the basket in January.  The only affordable metal baskets have 4 chains on them!  I want a real basket that reacts like a real basket at the course, you know?  So I made one.  It's the real deal!  1/4" Rod bent like the real thing, welded up, and supporting an outter and inner ring of 12 chains each.  It's powder coated and looks and acts like the real thing.  It is the real thing.  These are going for 479.99  on line.  Look around.  I'm starting to manufacture them, and I'm almost ready to start taking pre-orders.  Anybody out there interested in one of these with a price tag of 250.00?  Sorry, I can only get 230.00 cheaper than the competition.  Let me know what you think..... Lets talk baskets!

This basket is a perfect examle of how "Home course" or "Practice Baskets" fall short of my standards. Where's the inner ring of chains? Every basket I've played on at every course I've played at, has had 24 chains. I don't want a rinky-dink tiny little basket with half the chains. I'll throw some pics of mine up here in a bit.
I agree that double chains are always better. Pictures man, we need pictures!
lets see'em
I picked up a mach 2 portable for $180 at play it again. I've seen them new for $330 online. It looks as tho someone turned in a home course or something as they had at least 6 left. To bad your not in UT as they still have some left.
Allright, if this works, a couple pictures of the basket should accompany.
didnt work
I'd try to talk with DGA.

So here it is. PDGA Approval is currently pending.
You'll notice everything about this screams professional basket. Powder coated metal and galvanized chain and pipes. This one is slid into a pipe I have anchored in the ground. Compare this with the lightning basket pictured above. They don't compare.
That's not bad for homemade....one of the better ones at that.

What we really wanna see is close ups of the welds...chain attachments...macro lens or might be a setting in your camera.

Looks like inch and half pole.....thicker walled fence rail/post possibly?

You said powder coated...is that the finished product? Looks bronze in tone.

Chains look galvanized...are they hot dipped or electro?

I noticed you finished the basket verts flush with the rim...how sharp are those?

What grade steel did you start with?
