Default Those of you with a Recruit basket, what are your thoughts?

I'm pretty sure this is the basket I'm going to pick up or order pretty soon and I'm just wondering how you guys feel about yours.

It's ok. Mine started rusting in certain areas after 45 days of use.

I own a pro and sold many without any major complaints. I think KW sold like 200+ of the damn things last year! The HD is a beast too.

Do you leave yours outside? I won't be doing that. Seems weird it would rust unless it gets rained on.

I guess I should have used more expressive words in my previous post. Other than the rust...it's probably the best bang for your buck for a practice basket(Other than going full gusto on a permanent). It catches nice, DD ships fast and their customer service is pretty top notch.

By the way, I've owned an Innova Discatcher, DGA Mach Lite and Gateway Titan portable. The recruit is leaps and bounds better than those three.

Have a recuit and like it but you can get a comparable basket from mvp for cheaper.
Also prefer my marksman basket for practice at home. If I want to practice on regular baskets I just go to the course

Thanks for the update. At this point I'm pretty set on the Recruit. Hoping to put in my order on Friday. I would go veteran if permanent install was possible, but I live in an apartment so I see the extra money as a waste.

I just wish the MVP baskets had a regular cage. The only one that does is a Portal and it's ~$300 more than a Pro or HD.

Well why not get a DD patriot basket then only $100 more than the recuit and you get the closest thing to a tournament basket

I've honestly been debating it. I just can't find enough information to know if that $100 is really worth it. Guess I'll see what I do when I get paid.
