Default Modifying your Instep

Alright I know a bunch of us got in on the Newegg deal and bought some cheap baskets. Lets post up what we have done to customize and improve upon the original.

I plan on leaving mine outdoors for most of its life and will be painting the center poles. I also plan on adding an extra set of chains as well. I will probably use Zipties to attach the extra chains.

Has anyone made one into a Bullseye knockoff?

Anyone made the into permanently installed basket?

Lets make everyone who doesn't have one of these cheap gems jealous.

I made a knockoff of the Bullseye with mine already





Only took 14 zipties to do it.


14 zip ties @ .06 ea = .84

I am going to make a poly-lined cover to pull over the basket. It will be cylindrical shaped and pull down over it like a BBQ Grill cover. Should be pretty easy.

This'll allow me to keep it outside somewhat sheltered from the elements.

Could be a market for this. I have seen trash bags used on courses with multiple baskets during tournaments.
