I only mention the Basket as my local in town course has Lighting DB-5 with the base in a big cement block and they held up to the Missouri river flood of 2011 but the tops are from some old Mach III tops, baskets did not survive but the tops and chains were protected so they gave the in tow course after the State Park did not want them to the city to use for those DB-5 baskets. Not sure what happened to the Lightning DB-5 tops that the local club had added extra inner set of chain to the baskets? I think the chains were used by the city for other things? The rest was given to a scrap place or dumped at the dump.

As was previously mentioned, I would go the tone-pole route at first and save cash until proper perm. baskets can be bought.

I'd throw my vote behind the Mach2 for a budget level, fully hot-dip galvanized basket. About $250/each. I have 3 on my property and other than the faded center pole sticker, they still look like the day they were put together 5 years ago.

People might not like that the baskets are the old minimum requirement by the PDGA but other then that they are a good bargain for the price.

At that same price is the modern Discatcher Sport 24 chain by Innova. a tad weak in the way it is mostly powder coated bare metal but still has the higher cage to the basket.
