Default Titan Pro Portable Basket

I was just about to order a bullseye style basket when I stumbled onto this deal.
Signed up for email and I got another 5% off, so it ended up being $71 shipped to help me not lose my mind during this pandemic.

Seems to be like a DGA M14 had a baby with a Discatcher Sport.
Should be plenty for my needs, but I'll report back after I get it and spend some time with it.
Anyone else have one?

At first I was amazed that you got gateway's titan basket at that price. Then I followed the link, should be ok for the money though.

It looks like The company with the V2 as opposed to the original model looks to have some kind of sprayed on galvanizing compound unlike the the original and the basket chains have the zinc coating to them. This looks lot more durable then the older model people had to replace the chains and the rest who did not use some kind of Spray On Galvanizing Compound or at least the clear coat spray paint on the basket. I would put some of the Spray On Galvanizing Compound on the basket just to be safe to prevent rusting if they are going to sit out all year.

I have 2 of these baskets. They catch alright. There are always some chain outs though. It’s just part of buying a cheaper basket.

The Innova Sport Single chain also has some Chain out due to the weight of the chains being a tad lighter then those found on permanent course type baskets.

I think the newer version of Innova Sport 24 chain was made for this reason and for places like Ski hills that in summer have disc golf to supplement income in that period to have better baskets and Innova was seeing people take extra chains they bought and added to the inner ring that is on the basket before the top ring. Lightning DB-5 Baskets do not have this problem as bad as they use the weight of chains most brands use for permanent course baskets.

All fair points. I'd def take a Lightning DB-5 or a heavier weight DGA but, I mean, $71 to your door is kind of unbeatable.
Arrives tomorrow, too! Like crazy fast shipping.

Yes that us a good deal all around, if it catches as well as the Innova Sport 18 chain basket, if not can always get chain from a home fix place and get some better chain the same weight as what is on the basket.

This is what I did with my Innova Discatcher Sport, added 9 rows inner chains, and it catches as well if not better than any pro series baskets I have seen at local disc golf courses.

Yep this is why Innova now only makes the Innova 24 chain baskets with 6 set of inner chains, they were seeing others add at least 6 but more often 9 chains for the inner set going every other chain set so they made the 24 set due to the demand yet managed to keep the price nearly the same as the 18 chain set, maybe only $5-$10 more.

I know a guy who has/had an Innova 18 chain sport for his yard and he added better 18 set of outer chains using the inner 18 as the catching set with thin or aluminum S hooks he could easily bend with pliers so the chain sets could set permanently between the outer chain sets on that inner ring. This was well before better less priced baskets like the MVP HD or the Grow the sport models were made for general home use, even the less priced knockoff model we are talking about so the Innova Sportcatcher was as good as it got.
