"your chains look to heavy, your construction looks mediocre at best and it looks like a good amount of sharp edges ready to chew my very expensive plastic up. Hows your anchoring system work? Is it compatible with other products that may be…"

"Another very important issue with not turning the vert over the rim...thus creating the nub...is the structural integrity. Think about it...over a long period of time how will your vert hold up? I do believe all the major manufactures incorporate…"

"Basket looks great, good job. One think that I see that would be an easy fix is the chain alignment. The inner chains cant be right behind the outer. The pole looks to exposed from certain angles."

"Not bad for home made? Are you kidding me? This isn't a homemade basket just because I made it at home. I fabricated it in my metal shop. Sure I can get some close up detail shots. The pole IS a fence post pole with a 1 7/8" outside…"

"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…"

"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."
