Chain size is the biggest issue. Some of the baskets that are like the Wham-O basket in chain link size or the like but use 2 sets of chain still get cut though really bad due to how small the chains are. You need bigger chains even if they are very lightweight as those have more stopping area for the disc. Yes it is the Size of Chain that is most important for a basket, as even too big say on the Gateway basket you need to drive the discs into the basket over the others where putting is used.

Then a Very very close second is number of chains as a single chain Lighting DB-5 will have more cut though compared to most other second row of chain baskets of similar quality or Innova Discatcher Sport old 18 chain model will have more cut though then the newer 24 of same model.
