Default Best Cheap basket

I am looking for something to putt with in the yard, but don't want to break the bank. I currently have one of the fabric ones, but want something that resembles the ones at a course. I want it to be portable, but it doesn't have to be overly portable. What should I get?

I would say a DGA Mach II. I personally have a Innova Discatcher Sport that I bought used and like I like it.

I like my Discatcher Sport. It's not expensive & isn't very heavy at all. I carry it up & down stairs in my apartment building multiple times a week with no issue. I also have a Discatcher Traveler for when I want to putt/throw when I'm not at home. It's great for it's purpose but I wouldn't recommend it for just at home use.

Depending on definition of cheap. I love the MVP Black Hole Pro, but it's $140. Breaks down very easily, but super solid when put together. The sturdiness and inner chains do make it heavy though.

Yep. Havent had any complaints on sold ones really at all outside of minor stuff which has been addressed since the first run.

I'd throw another vote in for the MVP. Very impressed with mine, especially at that price point.

I have been temped to grab one of these for my second basket.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...470_em_1p_0_ti

For the price it seems to be a nice copy of the DC Sport for $80 bucks cheaper and free shipping. I am also an Innova dealer and this is still cheaper than dealer cost plus the shipping I would have to pay for another Sport.

I bought one of those last Christmas, but it didn't have the Sport top. Wonder what else they changed up. It definitely needed more chains. I moved all of them into the center, bullseye style, it catches well if you hit the pole like that.

I'd second Mach 2 if you want to leave it outside.

Another you can leave outside I believe is the innova super sport.

I wouldn't leave it out in the yard, would bring it into the garage when I'm not using it. I think both the Titan and the Black Hole pro look like good options. Any other comparisons of the two?

Black hole pro seems a lot better quality and your supporting a disc golf company.

I was so pissed they released that a bit after Christmas last year. I got the Titan instead
