couple of locals have the instep and i've putting on it.....here are some points i noticed
Pros: Price, Mobility, ability to add 2nd set of chains, Price
Cons: Rusts after a while, lotta spit outs, stock chains are crap, depth of basket, poor constuction quality
(Constructive Criticizism Time)
Whereas this is perfect for the backyard, 2nd set of chains are definitely needed. You must also take the basket inside when inclement weather comes. If you need a personal practice basket, it's perfect. Whereas, a pole or tree in the yard will yield similar practice results.
Personally, I have the DB-5. Whereas it's semi-cheap....its no Mach 2,3, or 5. However, its sturdy, rigid, and can withstand over 1 year of being outdoors without being rusted. All baskets have spit outs and this one is no different. I added a 2nd set of chains and that seemed to help, a lil. The basket isvery deep and can handle 15-20 putts before you'd need to clear out...
...now that the instep question has come back round...i need feel like i wasted 4 minutes of my life giving my $0.02 again
It's all good!
