I have owned this basket for less than a year and I have come to the firm conclusion not to recommend it to others. Though it catches well (for as few chains as it has), it is not durable. Over half of the welds on the basket have come loose and I do not break down and transport my basket…it sits in my backyard for putting only. If you’re looking for a basket, spend a little more and get something that will last.

I received a M-14 basket for Christmas this past year. The basket is excellent for practicing putting and is very durable. You can take apart the basket if you want to and use it on trips. I liked the basket so much I recommended it to 2 friends and they both have one also. However, the basket does toss out some good shots dead center. Overall, the basket is a 9 out of 10. The price and durability highly out weigh the occasional kick out.

My Review:
DGA's M-14 basket is the first all-metal basket in the $200 or less price range. This basket comes ready to assemble. No tools are required as the parts link together by push-button locks. It is very easy to put up and take down and light enough to carry easily. It breaks down into 5 pieces, a round base, 2 pieces for the pole, the basket, and the chain assembly. They all slide together and the basket/base/chains snap on with push button locks. The catching area has staggered chains it has a sliding chain assembly that catches very well if you hit it in the sweet spot. There are less chains that the higher end baskets and cut throughs and bounce outs occur more frequently, but it's overall catching ability is very good. It's not the sturdiest thing in the world, but it's sturdy enough to not require stakes and it won't tip over unless you push it over. As for durability, I havn't had mine long enough to make a judgement on this but I will update the review as it ages. The recommended maintnance says that it shouldn't rust but if any rust appears to spray it with chrome paint and it should stop. Hopefully I won't ever have to do that. Overall, if you are very serious about owning a basket, I might recommend buying one of the upper level baskets, but if you just want something to putt at, I would definately recommend the M-14.
