Default Best bang for your buck(target)

I want a nice target and was wondering what you guys think is the best bang for your buck. I don't want a piece of junk, but obviously don't want to spend much. I probably won't build one but if needed I'd add inner chains n such.(especially since I have college welding equipment to my disposal) I probably won't buy any time soon since I'm almost broke so it may be a dream or a gift idea.

The best I have seen is the DGA Mach Lite. Super portable, super storable and the most real feel of any of the cheap baskets. Unless I win a more expensive one at a tournametn raffle I will probably end up buying a Mach Lite myself.

I got an Innova traveler basket last year, actually 2, one was won, anyway I've been very happy with it so far. very easy to set up/take down. Catches well. The one that I bought was online for $99, with free shipping. I have a sportcatcher also, set up in the backyard full time. I prefer to practice on that, but for a travel basket, the Innova has been great.

Magh Lite is the one I hae been looking at. Its one of the cheapest and looks more like a regular basket than some of the other, more expensive baskets.

There are several threads on this you might want to try the search feature. Here is the most recent:

well it probably wont be a travel basket to tell the truth, but something portable would be nice in case me and my friends decide to set up baskets somewhere for fun. Probably wouldn't happen a lot, but sometimes.

I've tried the search feature. Each time I do it seems to bring up threads that don't have to do with what I'm asking about. Instead it gives me each thread with those words and rarely one that I'm looking for.

This is what I bought. It's rather heavy. 40-50# I like that. The base is kinda cheaply made. I'll probably end up making a different one. And I felt that it needed inner chains. I added them with S hooks. It has tool-less attachment points. It uses thumb screws. It's pretty portable provided you have the room to haul it. Considering the quality, price and shipping, I'm satisfied with it. OH, BTW it has been left outside for about a year now and is not showing any rust of deterioration. HTH.

I dont know man. For the price in that link, I would hate to have to add chains. Looks really nice though.
