Default Westside Weekend Basket

Got one of these as a gift today.

First impressions:
  1. Chains are nice and heavy
  2. Easy to assemble. No tools required
  3. Reasonably sturdy. Doesn't tip over on flat ground, even with hard putts
  4. Mine had some scratches on the top band where the chains or whatever hit it during shipping. Some tiny spots already have paint flaked off
  5. It's really loud. I'm going to have to find a way to mute the chains hitting the center pole
  6. It catches my putts (which are fairly soft, to be fair) as well as on-course baskets

Anybody else had one of these for a while? I'm interested to see how it holds up.

Nice! I have received gift baskets before, but they usually have nuts, cheese, chocolates,

bananas, apples, pineapple etc. Cool gift, quality looking basket. Practice baskets are great

for many reps of putts and truly help on the course. Congrats on more pars + less bogies.

P.S. dgcr user Hal9000 also has a westside discs weekend basket so maybe shoot him a PM.

I imagine you could use pipe insulation to quiet the chains a little. That's what I did when I lived in an apartment.

GoobyPls, I have had my basket about 9 months. It has held up very well to almost daily use. Nothing has loosened up or broken. I do bring it inside after using it, so it is not exposed to the elements.
