Different basket, but like broken shoulder, I just put a section of pipe insulation that I had laying around on the center pole. It's not perfect, but much quieter than before.

Edit: Since you didn't store it outside, it's possible the bolt was rusty when it arrived.

Rust requires oxygen. A light coat of grease to seal the part will stop further rust.

I did something similar for my Axiom Pro (same basket different color). I used some thin closed-cell foam that is supposed to be a heavy-duty drawer liner. Like for toolboxes. I just wrapped it around the pole a couple times and zip tied it like crazy, works great.

Mine also rusted at the exposed spots pretty quickly but is still going strong after 3 seasons. Some of the welds have popped but it’s generally holding together for backyard practice. I figure if a $150 basket lasts me 4 years in the elements, it’s a pretty good deal. I don’t even take it in when there’s snow.

One of the loudest baskets that I have used is my Dynamic Discs "Marksman". That thing really rings.

I cut up a bunch of plastic grocery bags I had under the sink and stuffed the top pole from both ends as much as I could without messing up the threads. it'll hold A LOT of bags and its silenced the basket a good bit. you still get a small bit of ring, but it doesn't resonate through the house nearly as much. Also saves spit-outs from hitting the bicycle tube that I had over the top pole previously.

Hmm. I hadn’t thought of something like that.

I might fill my pole with some of that expanding foam and see what happens. If it works well enough then I can take the paint rollers off the outside of the pole.
