are basket sleeves interchangable?

Will Discatcher Pros work with Mach 5 sleeves? Including the pad-lock flanges?

I could be wrong, but I do believe they are.

I imagine they thought they would when they replaced the discatchers at Sugaw with the chainstars for the Worlds. They were not interchangeable. Tomorrow i'm bringing a Mach 4 into work to get repaired. They swapped it out with a chainstar and those parts didn't even go together correctly. Good luck.

we have 3 DGA sleeves per hole at my home course. A local donor just offered to buy us 9 discatcher pros because he can get them from Innova for cost. He said we'd have to buy 9 more and leave all 18 in the shortest pin locations year round while we put the original 18 baskets wherever we want between the B's and C's.

So the deal will kinda crap out if the Discatchers don't fit.

I do acknowledge that we could cement the new baskets without a sleeve. But we would still like the option of removing them come tournament time.

If someone was buying me baskets I'd cop for the $25/each for anchors and put new ones in. Discatchers actually come with one anchor, just bury a new one and have 4 per hole.

My club has a set of of DGA and a set of Innova baskets on our course (2 permanent baskets per hole). We found out the hard way that they are not compatible. They list the same diameter, but one company uses pipe and the other uses tube. The difference is that pipe is listed by inside diameter and tube is listed by outside diameter. I can't remember which is which, but mixed either way they won't work.

Well I stand corrected.

Does anyone know if they are "supposed" to all be the same?

DGA changed their specs by about an 1/8 inch narrower around 2000.
Any baskets produced after that should match at least Innova does. Only thing with that is that the hole on the locking collars don't match up with the sleeve.
(you can widen the hole)
We found this out a few years ago when we tried to move the practice basket from Shillito (1998) to Veterans Park (2002) after a basket was stolen.
It wouldn't fit. This also meant that we couldn't put in new pin placements at Shillito since the old baskets will not fit into the new sleeves.
We'd either have to hunt down pre-2000 sleeves (which nobody wants to give up, and I don't blame them) or manufacture them.
When we had to move holes at Shillito to accommodate a new walking path we had to buy all new baskets for the effected holes.

They are not always interchangeable.

If you know a welder, you can have sleeves made for about $8 a piece.
