2013. Quartzite, AZ had washing machine tubs with homemade chains, as I recall.

We did have the Basket of Doom at the DeBell Weekly, but now its the Fist of Doom. The basket is whatever you care to use, so it's mostly aesthetic, but it can increase the chance of roll-aways. Created by Duncan C. aka Skullboy: https://skulboy.storenvy.com/

The original homemade tire baskets at bootleggers cove were quite fantastic actually. I’m sad they added longer pin positions with “normal” baskets actually. A lot of charm was found in the original layout with those baskets.

I remember seeing pix of those at some point in my DGCR past. There's a fine line between being charming and just being wonky. Those look look like they have more wonk than charm... but that's just the opinion of someone who's never played the course.

I suppose in the right setting, if they seem to fit with other features of the course, my opinion might differ.

Well in the 2010's it seems more and more brands are making under $100 in the USA Baskets one can buy off Amazon and other places that have the larger modern bottom disc cage , that can take the second set of inner chains as well for a $130-150 basket , then for better quality there is the $180 Grow the Sport basket 2 from Disc Store.

I do like seeing tires used for disc golf basket components as they are more uniform then other low cost homemade baskets to be more to what a basket is like. It nice to see a tire that can't get the retread to be used for something rather then get to sit forever in a landfill to turn back to Petroleum.

Considering all the different sizes tires come in, I wouldn't quite say they're uniform.
Tire diameter and tread width can vary greatly, not to mention rim width and sidewall dimensions.
Hopefully, all the baskets on this course use the same size tires... but that's certainly not guaranteed.
