Permanent Baskets

I need your help.

I've been in the fastener business for over 20 years and last week was the first time I've received a call from a reputable basket supplier looking for a tamper proof, security bolt solutions for mounting their baskets to the pole.

So being the smart guy that I am I've added 2 + 2 and figured I'd contact the other basket guys.

Who in your opinion is the largest permanent basket supplier.

If it's other please advise who....

Innova in this area, but I buy my anchors from DGA.
I hope I answered correctly, I feel I may have misread the question.

Between all the various Mach baskets I would guess DGA is the market leader, with Innova not too far behind and the others distantly behind those two.

After thinking about it a little more I think mashnut is right. My own school went with DGA. Derek K is great to work with. But only considering your poll options I would stick with Innova, but DGA has a nice variety of baskets.

Some other smaller manufacturers that might be worth contacting are Arroyo, DiscKing and whoever makes the spiderweb baskets these days.

DGA makes the Discraft Chainstar so combined they would likely be largest for the same types of basket designs.

The DCGR Maven dropping knowledge to settle the debate in this thread. No way innova puts out more than DGA and Discraft together.

What makes you think that the largest basket supplier may have the most secure system for the baskets? You know, by capitalistic continuity idealism, you wouldn't want your baskets to be TOO secure.
Having said that, I don't think any of our current manufacturers are far enough along in their moneymaking[like, say, Chevy] to think underhandedly enough to build in a little "attrition" rate.
But, maybe, there's a better system for someone to engineer, just waiting for the right person to think outside the[yes, Lord, I deserve to burn in Hell for this]------basket.
