You get what you pay for... or make.
I agree about the need for having good baskets. Even tho mine are homemade they will grab and keep a good hard drive from 15 feet!

Cheapest we could find for permanent baskets were the Discatcher Pros. They work well too, but come in at $300/basket.

If you're willing to bring them in out of the weather between rounds, then it's a different story.
Quality is definitely worth the price....if you can afford the price.

I should say that we've got some Sports and M-14s that have been out for 4 1/2 years now. The sports show a good bit of rust but, depending on your needs, they still work. And they've lasted more than a year or two. (This is in South Carolina, lots of rain/humidity, no ice).

A recommendation that we've haven't followed is that you could bag them when not in use---large leaf/trash bags over the top, tied around the pole. Might extend the life of less-expensive baskets a good bit. Of course, you've got to remove the bags before playing, a bit of a hassle.

I am leaning toward the Discatcher Sport or M-14, just due to my experience with my backyard catcher. I have had it out back for 2 1/2 years and it is holding up great. I can mod the course to play 18 holes off of 7 to 8 baskets, so that will help with the overall cost. I was thinking about making a permanent mount for the basket, but make the basket removable. This would give me the support of a perm. basket, but we can take them in and out if needed.

A new course in CO just installed Disc King Baskets. They are nice because you can get custom coloring for the baskets.

http://www.discking1.com/Baskets.html

They retail at 375' though I have no idea if they have bulk purchasing prices.
