Or you could build your own basket. I did that useing a bike tire, PVC pipe, a circular laundry basket, and chain. It coast me $20 to make.

Another one I could Recomend is the Driftsun Typhoon this one https://www.amazon.com/Driftsun-Typh...SD8C46BZF26G58 The price is about that of the MVP/Axiom models but this Driftsun Typhoon has a full sized basket catcher. Also the whole basket is Galvanized steel unlike the Titan Outdoors models. Most have not had rusting and leave the basket out all winter.

I got this one back in 2017. I keep it out of weather or in the garage, and it's held up well. It's a touch wobbly so you get what you pay for, but if you're in the market for a cheap basket (I figure the OP found one by now), it's not the worst thing you could get.

Really did not expect the basket to be so nice. My grandmother could set one up with no tools, and everything is as it should be. Nice heavy chains and it catches great. Very nice basket, quality finish and chains... 10/10 will be buying more for a backyard course!

Been throwing all kinds of plastic at it and moving it around since I got it and still can’t come up with a reason not to spend $140 on this basket. Haven’t been leaving it out in the weather yet (still snowing so it lives in the basement) but no indications of a lack in quality. Not quite as overall sturdy as the Prodigy T2 practice baskets we use at the course but those are more than double the cost and they don’t break down like the Axiom so they can be a bit more solid.

I’m calling it a win, and am still planning to buy more.

I have had this one outside for maybe 8 years or more. Except for where a big branch fell on it and caved in part of the top assembly, it is good as new. Still catches great and has a full-sized basket. I put a couple cinder blocks on the base so my kids wouldn't pull it over while they were learning to walk, left them for sturdiness.

Was $129 when I got it

One I found online that people like is this basket, the lowest priced model that is all metal with full sized disc catcher and is Galvanized to prevent rusting. https://www.amazon.com/Driftsun-Typh...NFN8GMMXEAG5XN

One thing that may be a consideration for some is that this target is not approved by the PDGA.

Yeah I thought it was let me check. Well that only had in the list the championship level. I thought the Driftsun was a Standard level basket?

It's not approved. I should know, as I've done the PDGA testing for all targets and discs since 1989.
