Default Discmania Lite Basket

Out of all the releases Discmania has done, I am most excited for this one! For $109 you can't go wrong for a practice basket!

Looking forward to spring 2015

From Discmania:

New effective chain setup

Countless hours of testing with various different putting styles showed that for this type of basket, setting the chains in two rows is not the best way to go. The chain configuration in our LITE Basket works both vertical and horizontal, allowing lighter chain to be used to allow both lighter overall weight and improved catching ability. This chain configuration also prevents the discs to slide through the chains, reducing the number of unfair spit-outs.
Lightweight & Collapsible

One of the key aspects of the new LITE Basket is its light weight. Weighing only 8 kilograms (17,6lbs), this basket is easy to take with you wherever you want set up your dream course or start a practice putting session. The LITE Basket is also easy to bring along on trips, as when collapsed, it can easily fit to the trunk of just about every car out there.
Easy To Assemble

The LITE Basket is offered with a neat-looking sales package that can be saved for storing the basket when it’s not use. Assembling the basket takes only a couple of minutes and no tools are required.
Affordable

The manufacturer suggested retail price of the LITE Basket will set at $109 in the US and 79€ in Europe. Compared to all other full metal practice baskets in the market, this one is a bargain!

We strongly believe that the Discmania LITE Basket will set a new standard for lightweight practice baskets. It gives you the realistic putting experience with affordable price. We’ve minimized the amount of spit outs with the new inventive chain configuration, so you could have the most realistic results for your putting session. Now you can only blame yourself for the unsuccessful putts. Try it out, we bet you’ll love it!

The chains look really thin, but it looks like the horizontal chains compensate really well for the lighter weight. It also looks like this basket screws together instead of using pins like a lot of the newer baskets I've seen. Has anyone had any problems with these screw connectors? It just seems like more work than pins and potentially less durable (if the bolts are welded in and the basket gets moved while assembled).

The horizontal chains probably will help with cut-throughs, but I'm thinking you'll see a lot of bounce-outs back off the post. I could be wrong though.
But, at that price point, I'm not sure you can complain too much. I'd be pretty interested to hear how these catch when people start using them.

Looks like a good basket for the price point.

I do not like those paper clips they're using for the chains though. I also don't like how it looks like you hang each chain from a slanted hook. If you move your basket around much or brake it down to travel that is going to get annoying.

I would rather them use heavier chains that lock in and charge a bit more but again at that price point you're very competitive for what it is.
