Default Basket for the house, Mach III oorrr....?

Hey guys. Been quite a while since I posted on dgcoursereview....

My new house has some acreage and timber, so I'm wanting a few baskets out there. I have two DGA Mach Lites, but I want a pro-level basket basket.

A guy offered me a brand new in-box DGA Mach III with portable base, and comes with in-ground sleeve as well for $330. I haven't really been in the big-boy basket market long, but that seems like a solid price compared to DGA's website and Amazon.

Do you think I should get that? Or do you think it would be worth the extra $ to get a Mach V, 28-chain Innova, Chainstar, etc etc? I don't mind the Mach III but I don't think its my favorite....I just think passing up $330 or even $360 for a brand new Mach III would be foolish.

What do you guys think? What would you do...and why?

...and why? lol

I'm looking for a PDGA approved target, and the trays on the Titan look super shallow on their website....but pics on courses they look almost too wide and deep.

That's a heck of a good price. If you happen to like that basket, I'd pull the trigger.

Good deal on the Mach III, I'd jump on it.

I believe the permanent install titans and the portables are a bit different. I'm happy with my portable Titan but my portable Mach III is a much better basket, features a solid pole and isn't designed to be easily broken down while the Titan pulls apart with no tools. The result is the Mach III is much more solid while the Titan is a little bit loose in comparison. Portable Titans might not even be in stock right now?

I'd jump on it too. Mach IIIs are some of my favorites. They catch pretty damn well for not having rows of chains.

I've had a Mach III going on 25+ years now. It's still as good as it was when it was new.

Wow that's awesome. I didn't even know they were that old. But then again, I'm barely over that old.
