Default MVP Yellow Jacket Practice Basket

I saw this option on my MVP Circuit Challenge Order Form

There's gotta be a pic on the net somewhere...

yeah sounds like there will be option for double chains or cross chains but I wasn't really able to find much info out there. I did notice a company selling baskets under a similar name just not sure how MVP has it worked out to wholesale them or if its a product of their own.

Pretty cool though!

Found it!
Somehow this slipped by me while on vacation.

I'm not 100% sure this is it, but you know how they like to sneak these teasers in.

This must be the double chain version.

Hmmm. Those look like light weight chain. Kinda looks like an InStep/Costco basket.

If the pole connects with threaded bolts, that'll be a big disappointment. Why reinvent the wheel when the cotter pin couldn't make things any easier.

Do any practice baskets use a cotter pin?! I don't like the threaded set up at all on my Costco version.



Even the skillshot umbrealla spring set up always scared me like I would lose a finger tip.

Sooo, punch it out with a drill bit and get a large cotter pin. Viola! Everything you've ever wanted!

Looks light and a bit flimsy. But it is a company I like to support, and if the price is right then it might be worth getting as a camp/backyard setup as long as it's reasonably portable. The Costco/In-Step basket that I have is pretty terrible for taking apart and packing up, so if they've created a more simplified version with better quality and a reasonable price point, then they might be on to something.

Those chains do look awfully light, though. We'll see.

not that simple. would need to taper the poles so they fit together or make a sleeve and the basket is supported by the same threaded poles.

The basket part of my Mach Lite is equally as scary.
