I've always pushed for discatchers at all the courses I've been involved with. One of the guys in our club got to talking with Schusterick, and that lead to us getting the new Prodigy baskets (Will said we were the first to get them shipped). These baskets are really stinking nice, as good a quality as the discatchers. We haven't gotten them installed yet, actually not even assembled (the University is having their logo added to them so they're still at the sign shop), so none of us have putted on them yet. The chain pattern looks pretty awesome.

Exclamation Innova DISCatchers are Number One!

The Innova Discatcher is the most popular target in the world using the DGCR database. The PDGA Database also proves the DISCatcher target is number one and installed on more courses worldwide than any other brand. The data is very similar even though PDGA only lists 4709 courses compared with DGCR's list of 6548 courses.


As of 12/10/14 using the PDGA Course Database:

The PDGA lists 4709 courses worldwide and 1562 have DISCatcher targets or 33.2%. DGA is second with 1354.



Discatcher courses account for 33.2% of the total courses listed on PDGA and 32.3% on DGCR. DGA has 28.8% of the total on PDGA and 27.4% on DGCR.

I think it may be due to the method of recording. New courses don't always get logged, and the PDGA tends to be a less popular place to register a new course these days. The 2014 data is also not finalized.

I wouldn't say it's trending down, Private courses are on the rise, and those don't always utilize permanent targets or approved manufacturer targets, which is where much of the data is coming from, I'd hazard a guess.

I believe I am going with Dynamic on the course I'm building.

Where I live in South Dakota the DGA models mostly newer Mach III models or Mach V are used but the second is the Innova DISCatcher models and third is other or Chainstar Pro as those are replacing the old Chainstar on lots of courses that hate them and they then scrap the old Chainstar baskets if they do not go to a beginner course in that town that needs actual baskets not homemade.
