It's showing 52" from the ground to the top of the flag. That'd put it a touch short. Great price, but I already when as cheap as I could stand with a Hive.

Looks very similar to the Hive basket, except for the price.

Amazon states "Height from Ground to top of Pole:52 inch" Which is the true case? Who knows. 52" to top of basket would be correct, top of pole, a little short, top of flag waaay short.

If you could make a short video. would like to see how it takes a disc. If its solid-ish could easily put another row of chain on it. and in a sleeve in the ground for stability.

Looks identical to the park & sun they were selling at costco.
*but with upgraded chains.

Will be interested to hear how well they catch.
That type chain configuration might make a good upgrade, instead of adding inner chains

I found this Discatcher Sport copy while looking at the one in this thread:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...A1UMJD02VNELDF

I am tempted to buy one for the price with free shipping. These look way more solid than the Costcos, Park and Sons, and other cheapies out there.
