What Color Baskets?

Postby IMPRESARIO » Wed May 11, 2011 10:40 am

I'm already sold on using Innova Baskets. Love the bogey band! :twisted: But I'm not sold that yellow is best color. I've heard powder blue makes a sweet look :?: Any input you guys have would be great. Especially if you can post some pictures of courses with different colored Innova baskets.

Really depends on the layout. If it's mostly wooded holes, the yellow bands have a visual advantage.

I'd pesonally would vote for the colored DGA baskets that are like the ones at IDGC.

DGA baskets are more expensive than Innova but the benefits far outweigh the cost associated with each product. DGA offers a 20 year warranty on their baskets, Innova does not. It takes a DGA basket roughly 20+ years to start rusting, most new Innova baskets will start rusting in about 1-2.

So if you like baskets that are not guaranteed and rust really easy go with Innova. If you prefer baskets that are really, really rust resistent, durable, consistent AND feature a 20 year guarantee go with DGA Mach III.

Just a recommendation...

So perhaps DGA might be out of the question, but I can verify that the powder blue bands are cool looking (I saw them on a mountain course in Asheville NC).

But in all seriousness expect the baskets to rust.

Innova offers custom wraps for the bogey band.

We have metallic blue baskets at the Monty. They look really good, but in the shadows, they are harder to see, even with a colored bands. When the sun hits them, they light up quite nicely, though.

Let me get this straight, so you think the baskets will rust? :roll: :lol:

Here is a quote from Innova regarding Rusty baskets, "Rusty chains have not been a problem for some time. I have attached our warranty information. What is important to note is that the 20 years for DGA targets is 20 years due to structural failure caused by rust or corrosion, we have matched that. Basically the target has to rust through and fail, not likely for any heavy steel galvanized equipment. As you are aware we stand behind our products and if anything unusual occurs we will work with you to correct."

INNOVA Disc Golf DISCatcher Pro Limited Warranty:

1. Warranted for 20 years against structural failure due to rust, corrosion and
manufacturing defects.

2. The warranty is limited to parts produced by INNOVA Disc Golf and its vendors. Such damaged parts will be replaced by INNOVA Disc Golf and will be delivered to the customers address free of charge.

3. The warranty is not effective if products have not been installed properly according to the instructions provided by INNOVA Disc Golf.

4. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, surface corrosion on metal parts, discolored surfaces and other cosmetic issues or failures due to misuse or vandalism.

I'm not sure I agree with Innova's statement. To their credit, Innova has worked diligently with the GDGO to replace rusty chains, but the chains do rust. Lenora's DisCatchers were installed about 3 years ago, and Alexander's not quite 2 years ago. Over the course of the past year I have changed 20 sets of rusting chains from baskets. Surprising most have been at Alexander.
The GDGO installed a practice basket at Alex a little over a year ago. The chains on it are beginning to show some slight traces of rust.

Although I prefer to deal with Innova, I will have to say that the Discraft Chainstar (DGA Mach V) will not rust. I have had one in the backyard for 10+ years and no signs of rust. The issue with them, though, is price.

My Mach V is 6 to 7 years in the wide open and not a spot of rust. It is a better product.

Unfortunately they do not offer this any more if they did so at one time. We inquired back in March and we were told that they can be made but that they do not offer such a service. We have found a few local print shops that can produce them with the proper graphics file in the $20-$30 range per.

Anyone who has ever played the tiki course in VA knows that rusty basket are the best catchers! Just maybe not as pretty. The problems with mach 2, 3, 5, and chainstars are catching problems. They spit and cut through a lot more than disccatchers.

You're high on crack - only you ass-tards that putt with thumbers have that issue - I can count on one hand the number of cut-thrus I've had a Central in the multitude of rounds there... I agree with you on the rusty chains catching better though- though they just look kinda trashy...which is right up us southern boys' alley...

You know, if you do pink, you can say it's to recognize and support the effort to fight breast cancer. Then Bill will use the course for his all ladies tourneys and they will be highly visible. Plus, Vern will worship you and play the course all of the time. I vote pink also.

He wants disccatchers not Mach III's Randy....

Allthough I can confirm that the powder blue disccatchers are pretty cool looking.

Thanks for the tip, Grease.

And thanks for the opinions fellas. I've contacted DGA and am going to take another look at what they have to offer. I still favor Discatchers but I'm going to let the local club put their 2cents in as well.
