Hives will still be around, those are the lowest price option, especially considering the minimum pricing that dealers can reach. And the new Practice model has the greatest discount margin between MSRP and Minimum, so those can get fire-saley. Black Hole™ Practice is a modified Hive in a way;

I just ordered myself a Pro.

Really looking forward to practicing on a basket that won't devastate my confidence like my Bullseye....

The Mach 2 is definitely the best choice on the market for an affordable in ground basket. Not only is it the build quality superior to anything else on the market, it comes with a 20-year warranty for extra piece of mind.

You can remove both rows. The first row comes off by just taking them off, the second row comes off via Carabiners

Great, thanks guys, more money I don't have now going to be spent on lots of Pro baskets

They look good and will do just what I need for temporary course set ups for tournaments.

Had an email back from them last night, they come in boxes of 25" x 25" x 8" so easy to transport to and from the course as well. Nice one MVP, this looks a really solid addition to the marketplace.

Hot dipped galvanized for permanent installs, zinc plated for temp setups -- these MVP baskets are zinc plated (basket and chains), although the baskets are then powder coated which helps. If the powder coating chips it will eventually rust in those spots if left outside, and the zinc plated chains will rust if left out all the time. They are ideal baskets for temp setups like rhatton wants to do, or as practice baskets for which they were designed.

Just a small piece of mind.... I've sold quite a few Black Holes so far and have only had great feedback on them. Doesn't mean that someone won't let me know if they hate it, but over half of the purchasers have let me know that they are very happy with the baskets.
