Default Whats your favorite basket?

Whats your favorite basket to play on?

I'm working on a course and want to get what people thought about baskets. I have been contacted by a few companies, but I don't know what to choose. I am just in the planning stages of this project, but I just need to get a cost down so I know what to set my goal at.

Thank you!!

Cones! Don't think anyone makes them these days,

Discatchers or Prodigies.

I have three MVP Portals at the house, and they catch good putts well. The chains are heavier than some competitors so they're not as prone to pulling in a bad putt since the chains push the disc away. Having said that, they've been a great basket overall. I had some quality concerns, specifically around the powdercoating on the band, but they've handled every hit (there have been a lot) they've taken without breaking a sweat. The stainless steel chains still shine too.

Having said that, if I had it to do over again, I'd spring for Innova Discatchers. They just catch my poor putts better than anything else on the market and are probably the most common basket in the areas I've played.

Agreed. Nothing catches better, or sounds better than Discatchers. I've only played on Prodigies like twice, but really liked them.

I also really like Mach X's. But I don't like the new, deeper Mach V's.

DISCatchers are still the gold standard, imo. Prodigy and DD have some great baskets also.

Almost every course I play at has chainstars. I like them better than discatchers, or any of the old DGA mach baskets. But those DD veterans are nice.

DD Veterans are my all-time favorites, but you can't go wrong with DISCatchers. If you're looking for something new and cool, Chainstar Pros were a pleasant surprise.
