I have a modified Instep basket. I think it was $89 from Amazon when I got it. After I had had it a while I added an inner set of chains. Surprised at how well it catches. I try to putt 10-15 mins every day. I keep the basket inside and throw 10-12 putts about every time I walk by it.

I also have about 2 acres of land which is mostly trees. I have one 210' lane that's about 25-30' wide in the front that I throw on almost every day. Sometimes I'll make 10-12 throws after work and some days I'll make 100 or more. I've lost more discs in my own yard than I ever have on a course. lol. When discs get under the leaves they're tough to find. I raked a huge section in the woods looking for a tbird that hit a tree. Never did find that disc.

I'm in the minority, no practice basket. I am considering the "Titan Disc Golf Catcher Basket Target Portable Steel Chain practice frisbee hole" from Amazon for $109 shipped "
Amazon's wording, not mine. A lot of positive reviews.

It was a gift so I'm not positive. For practice, backyard course the Mach IIs are great. Hot dipped galvanized for prolonged outdoor durability. Sturdy. Catch well.

Im happy to say im getting mine in this weekend! Bday present from the wife... shes tired of be breaking sh!t trying to putt across the house into laundry baskets and cat trees. i really wanted to jump on the black hole pro but ended up getting the #growthesport basket. Anyone got any feedback on that model? Figured i might have to add some heavier chains.
