Arachnids are freaking awesome catchers. BUT I would say for most folks the Discatcher with it's bright yellow is a nice "warning" for Parks and Rec folks who know NOTHING about disc golf, and are only concerned about safety issues.

Are they finally making the Vortex in sufficient quantities to buy for courses? They weren't available for a while as I recall. I might consider getting the Chainstar so you can could add the number plate right away or even later if it's a hillier course where the extra height helps visibility.

My .02

I have four Innova Pro's from 3 different manufacturing eras. They're real nice and all but they haven't taken the abuse as well as the DGA-made permanant baskets over the years.

The lone MACH III and 3 Chainstar's I have catch discs great and I believe will last the longest for about the same price as Innova's.

I haven't tried the ones from other companies yet so they could be better/worse.

I seem to notice the chains rusting worse on Discatchers more than any other basket. The crown is nice and visible, true, but it also provides a nice surface for sharpie artists to gloat about their 226' ace or that so and so's sister is a whore.

That's fair, but I've found that when the band isn't available, the signs get tagged even more. I would rather have a sharpied up basket than a sharpied up tee sign.

There will never be progress if someone doesn't take the first step. The Arroyo Vortex really seems like a true effort to evolve our baskets for the better, so if they're available and financially feasible option, I would definitely give them a solid consideration. Then again I've never putted on one, so I cannot give a personal recommendation, but they look to be catching great on videos.

You need the monkey trap as an option. Plus Russel Burns AKA "The disc golf monkey" the man who makes these baskets is a Missouri Local. Support the small guy. Did i mention he will powder coat them almost any color you want
