Question Best portable basket for putting?

Hi!

This is my first post here, and I need some help. I've been playing since august last year, and I'm hooked, to say it at least. I'm starting to get my drives in place, hit the 425 feet milestone last weekend! However, my record on the local course is +10. This is because my putting is horrible, and my approaches needs a lot of work, too.

That's why I'm here. I need a basket. I'm looking for a portable basket, but I've got no clue on which one to buy. I live in Norway, so it has to be able to handle cold weather, and preferably be able to withstand a putting session in snowy weather.

Please give me the reason for your opinion.
Thank you!

Are you looking for one to leave outside or a basket that you can just quickly put up and take down?

Gateway Titan 24. All metal, and no tools to break it down for movement.

I own an Innova Traveler and I'm not a huge fan of it. It is in an awkward shape and only has 6 chains

I have an Innova Traveler and it has 12 chains. I think that they upgraded them a while back, as mine is about a year old.

I travel in an RV and need something very light and portable. The Traveler is significantly different than a metal basket, but my practicing on it has done wonders for my putting.

What is your definition of portable? My DB5 is pretty stout and disassembles without tools and into four pieces. I consider it portable.

Can you compare the DB5 to the Disc Nation Freedom?

I need something that I can break down and take with me in a small car. Not too heavy. It's a plus if I don't have to take it down all the time, but I'll do it if I have to during the winter.
