Default Basket makeover 5/27/16

Sandbags sound like the ticket.
I decided to go with MVP Black Hole Pros which come with 12 outer and 12 inner heavy chains and a black 2" band. No modifications needed. They look great and catch great !
Should be arriving today.

Honestly, I liked the baskets. They almost seemed to catch better than regulation ones since they almost clamp down on the disc when you hit chain. After the first couple holes, I didn't think about them at all.

For whatever reason the long distance roadtrippers don't mind them, but most regional players can't hang with them.

And I modified the inside chains so they are always centered between the outside chains. Should have it all finished soon, it's already looking much better.

So here is my modified ebay (hive) basket, it catches great and is much quieter now too. All the dimensions are within PDGA specs and are very close to course Discatcher dimensions.
