It feels weird putting on anything but a DISCatcher

Finally got to play on MachX at Rollin Ridge last weekend. They are as good as discatcher pro28s. Haven't played on DD or Prodigy baskets though.

The only thing I don't like definitively about DISCatchers is that if you have an open course, be prepared to see the yellow bands fade really bad in no time. Innova sells a lot of baskets so quality control misses can be expected, like chains that weren't properly galvanized. Just keep an eye out for stuff like that just to be on the safe side. They do catch great though.

I prefer DISCatchers for the visibility, I think they have the biggest band on them.

MVP Pro Portals are nice but not quite as visible.

Prodigy T1's are ok, not my favorite though and kind of fugly IMO.

DGA Mach V's and X's etc. and Chainstars in standard gray are almost invisible in the woods if that is what you want. Bright color powder coated ones help with visibility.

The fade factor is truth...if you go with the standard yellow. I've got custom red Discatchers on my course that have been out for 13 years now and the baskets in the open areas that catch sun all day are not appreciably more faded than the ones that are in the perpetually shady areas. Meanwhile, there are courses in the same area with the standard yellow that are newer than mine and have noticeably faded to a much larger degree.

I don't know if it is something in the custom coloring process or if some colors are just more prone to fade than others, but it's something to consider.

I've definitely seen chains on DISCatchers rust before their time. Englewood comes to mind.

MachX are great
Discatchers can be fine
Prodigy's baskets are fine
Gateway Titans are a bit different but I was impressed with the catching ability (I've only played one course with them)
DD Veterans are fine (also only one course)

I'm not a basket complainer
