The Basket has Arrived

The Basket target made by new manufacturer MD Disc Golf in Kansas is now Approved at the Championship level on 6-18-2013.

"The Basket is produced with a superior heavier pole and chain design, lifetime nickel plating throughout. The Basket is the first designed to grab and hold all putts. Other manufacturers may claim to have Championship PDGA approval but The Basket is fully Championship certified by the PDGA. So if you’re looking to set up a backyard practice course or a Championship level layout, The Basket is your only choice. It's the only one you’ll ever need." - MD Disc Golf

I think it looks weird. Probably the overly large rings on the 'basket' portion.

Also, 'The Basket'?

Looks a lot like a DB5 with double chains. It says nickel plating but it looks galvanized. But who can really tell from a picture? The big question is how they stack up against the competition in catching and price.

I followed the link but didn't see them (to ascertain price).

And who cares how they look if they really catch well. I wish those Arroyos were closer, those things are supposed to catch really well.

Seems like those rings on the inner rim of the basket could knock a disc around when you wouldn't want it to....
