Review: When I pulled this basket out of the box I was amazed at the quality of the construction. Assembly took less than five minutes and the finished product was rock-solid.

The chains (18) seem a little heavier grade than most chains, and the result of my first two days of putting practice leaves me with the conclusion that one will experience more spit-outs than on other baskets. This may be because the chains haven't been "broken-in," but overall it isn't that much of a problem. Addition of inner chains should be easy with this basket...and I will probably do this soon.

For $180 shipped, I think that this was a very good bargain.

Review: I just purchased the DB-5 for well under $200 shipped. Assembly/Breakdown is/was a cinch and fits together very well. There is no center ring of chains however adding on the inners would be real easy. The outside 18 chains are quite stiff right out of the box and have had a few dead ringers get tossed out. All in all the basket makes a great backyard basket as its handled the weather fairly well. This may not be the best basket on the market however for under $200 shipped, its a steal. I highly recommend if you want a decent backyard basket. And i do recommend adding the inner chains as well.
