All the new baskets are great. I would say veterans are the best for a course with a lot of casual play. Prodigy, Mach X and discraft chainstar pro are more professional targets that reward hard center putts. If money is an issue, take whichever of the aforementioned baskets you can get at price.

If you want to save money this is an option, https://www.discstore.com/growthespo...hoCCygQAvD_BwE

I have yet to see one on a course though as these seemed to only come out in September of this year. https://www.pdga.com/technical-stand...port-permanent

Though it looks like it is a good lesser priced alternative to the higher visibility band style with more then one set of chains that only have the less obtrusive option in black.

The basket looks like a Discraft Chainstar Pro.

Unless it's a gold-level course that is catering to pros, I think the Mach X, Prodigy, or Chainstar Pro are poor choices. They tend to spit out soft putts.

Best bang for your buck IMO is a powder-coated Mach 5. It's really hard to complain about a Mach 5, they are right in the middle as far as favoring hard/soft putts. They are bulletproof, and almost $100 cheaper than some of the new top-of-the-line options. The extra visibility of a Mach 7 or Discatcher Pro is nice with a little extra cost. There are 4 more chains in those baskets but in my experience, they catch very similarly to a Mach 5. I think really you're paying for the better visibility.

Yep Mach V is one of the better baskets, same with the modern 28 chain Discatcher Pro. Older Discatcher Pro tend to have every now and then a cut-through but that is a thing of the past.

Old original Chainstar permanent is a poor choice and not counting the fact the basket is an old height basket. it is due to how a disc will bounce out of those baskets cage even on an easy put if you are not using a nearly as stiff as legally possible putter. Even the old original Mach II is better then the Chainstar in terms of catching a disc in the cage.
