Default Best place to buy single permanent basket?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a single permanent Latitude 64 ProBasket Competition (or equivalent such as DISCatcher Pro) for a neighborhood. What is the best/cheapest place to purchase one online?

I saw Amazon has them for $360, and Discs Unlimited has them at $299 but they're out of stock. Are there any other websites I should be aware of? $300 is the price point I'm targeting.

I really want the band on top and double set of chains, outside of that, I'm flexible.

Thanks in advance!

Might want to reach out to your local clubs. We often have old baskets that are either being replaced or from a course that has gotten pulled. The goal is almost always to re-purpose them for a new course, but you might find older styles that could be less desirable for a new installation, but fitting your needs. Clubs might also have lines of communication with park systems that have baskets laying around. The good thing about both of these ideas, is that they are usually permanent baskets.

I appreciate you pointing me to the KWS store. This is exactly what I was hoping someone would find.

I'd like to revive this thread because I can't seem to find a $300 basket anywhere now.

I contacted Madison Parks, and they do have extra baskets, but they want to utilize them for city parks, as opposed to neighborhood parks. Thanks for the idea!

Upon researching, I haven't found a single retailer that sells permanent baskets online. All are on backorder. Yikes.
