In this blog I will discuss the top 5 most popular, inexpensive portable disc golf baskets for 2019. I hear a lot of people talk about the expense of getting a basket as though they are about to make a major purchase. While it is certainly possible to spend many hundreds of dollars on a new basket, it is also possible to get a quality practice basket relatively inexpensively. One of the best ways to improve in this sport is to practice putting regularly, and the best way to do that is to have a basket (or two) on hand for daily practice. So, lets jump in and look at the top five most popular baskets for 2019.
Top 5 Best Portable Disc Golf Baskets for 2019
Thinking about improving your game? Check out these top-selling portable baskets:
The best-selling basket for 2019, and one of my personal favorites, is the DGA Mach Lite. This is a well-designed, inexpensive practice basket that is easy to set up and take down. It’s tough to beat the Mach Lite for portability and cost. No tools are necessary for set up. And the chains are grabby for a portable. It also comes with a bag to carry the folded basket. I’ve had mine for about 5 years and it is still in good shape. The Mach Lite is a great basket if you will be transporting it from time to time. It sells for $135.99. (Keep an eye out for the Black Friday sale!)
The next most popular portable disc golf basket is the MVP Black Hole Pro. The Black Hole Pro is a basket that is easy to set up and take down without tools. It has two rows of 12 chains to catch and hold your disc. The Black Hole Pro is a great example of getting a well-made basket at a reasonable price. The Pro is nearly the same quality level as a course basket. It is great if you want a good, grabby basket to practice with, and also want a great basket to use for temp holes during leagues or tournaments. The Black Hole Pro sells for $139.95
The third best selling basket is the little brother to the Black Hole Pro, and that is the Black Hole Practice basket. This basket is has lighter chains and no upper band compared to the Black Hole Pro. The Practice is lighter and easier to move around, and for a practice basket it is still grabs discs quite well. The Black Hole Practice is good for using at home, and occasionally using it as a temp basket. The Practice sells for $119.95.
The Axiom Pro basket is a great choice, offering quality and portability at a good price. It is powder coated and comes in bright colors. The Axiom Pro easily sets up and breaks down without tools. The heavy duty chains provide good disc-grabbing power. The Axiom has 24 chains, and retails for $139.95. It is another basket to consider if you want to practice at home, but still use as a quality temp basket for leagues or tournaments.
Rounding out the top five portable baskets is the Dynamic Discs Recruit. This beefy basket is slightly larger than most practice baskets. Its two rows of chains will stop a speeding disc in a hurry. To aid in moving the basket around, the base has a wheel attached. While the Recruit is priced higher than the rest of the top five, it is also the sturdiest and heaviest. It does need tools to take it apart to move, and it is heavier to lift once disassembled. However, it does come apart relatively easy. The quality of the Recruit is exceptional. To be that well-built and sturdy at that price point is impressive. I’ve spent many hours putting on a Recruit, and I love the basket. It sells for $199.99. It’s a great basket if you want a top-of-the-line quality at a reasonable price and you won’t be breaking it down frequently. If you are looking for something that you can transport frequently, I would consider something a little smaller/lighter.
It certainly is a good time to be in the market for a portable disc golf basket. The quality of the available baskets at the low price points means you can get a basket to improve your game without spending a ton of money. Check out our selection of baskets today and get on your way to lowering your scores.
Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing interest in disc golf mystery box deals and package sets which offer a bulk lot of discs at a low cost. Many of those mystery box deals on the market offer a selection of discs by a single brand. However, here at Infinite Discs, we wanted to built a selection of bulk lots and mystery “Deals Box” deals that featured a wider variety of discs by multiple brands. That way we could target the more adventurous players. If you love to explore and throw a mixed bag, these deals boxes are for you.
DISC GOLF MYSTERY BOX DEALS
Whether you only want to explore a handful of discs, or you want a whole pile, Infinite Discs has several choices to fit your mood and budget. These deals boxes can contain a mix of discs with stock stamps, misprints, and tournament stamps. All discs will be new, but may not all be stock stamp editions. Here is a look at the package deals currently available at Infinite Discs:
This is a small mystery box deal that features only a handful of discs to check out. It can features discs from multiple brands. However, with only 5 discs, the variety won’t be as large. This box will contain the following:
Three drivers including overstable and understable models
Of the five discs in this Junior box, two of the discs may be in budget, base plastic, and the other three discs will be in a premium or durable plastic blend. Though the package set is called “Junior” because of its size, it should not be assumed to be easy-throw discs for young players. The discs will generally be fine for players of any experience level to use.
This is by far the most popular mystery box on the Infinite Discs website. This is a 7-disc collection that will instantly build your bag with a variety of discs from different brands. This box will contain the following:
One or Two Mid-Range Discs
At least one understable driver
At least one overstable driver
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers
Of the seven discs in this Deals Box, none will be in base plastic. The putter or one of the other discs may be in mid-grade plastic, as preferred in most putters, and the rest will be in premium or more durable, long-lasting plastic blends. The weights of the discs may vary. Again, this is a great variety of discs in a single package with a variety of uses on the disc golf course.
If you are even more adventurous, or you have a bigger budget, then consider the 12-disc XL deals box. This is another mystery box that is popular as a gift idea since it provides maximum anticipation and surprise for any disc golfer who loves trying new discs. Once again, it will contain a mix of different disc brands. This XL box will contain the following:
At least three mid-range discs
Seven drivers ranging from understable to overstable
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers
Just like with the regular Infinite Deals Box, this larger version will not contain discs in base plastic, but will contain putters (or sometimes a mid-range) in a mid-grade plastic. Putters and approach discs are often popular with more grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends.
This is the largest disc golf mystery box offered by Infinite Discs. It has 15 discs from a wide variety of brands but also includes a large disc golf bag to carry them around the course. If you really want to surprise a disc golfer with a fantastic gift, then this is great way to do it– especially if the player is new and wants to try a lot of discs while needing a bag as well. It can also be a lot of fun for disc golf clubs where a lot of prizes are needed at a low price. This deals box includes the following:
Two or Three Putters
Three to Five Mid-Range Discs
A Variety of Drivers from Understable to Overstable
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers (usually more)
A large shoulder-strap disc bag
The discs included will not be in base plastic, but there may be two or three putters or mid-range approach discs in mid-grade plastic for better grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends for long term use.
The newest addition to our mystery box selection at Infinite Discs is the 5-Disc Budget Box. This one differs from the Deals Box Jr because it is entirely focused on discs in base plastic. It’s meant to be a very inexpensive way to get a few discs for a new disc golfer. Like with the Deals Box Jr, the set includes a putter, a mid-range disc, and three different drivers. It is the kind of box that you can hand to anybody who wants to get into the game and they’ll have the basic tools they need to get started at a very low cost. That’s 5 discs at a retail price of only $29.99, which adds up to only $6 per disc. It will feature a variety of manufacturer brands for a variety and the discs will switch up from time to time, just to keep things interesting.
Perhaps the disc golf mystery boxes are not your style? If you’re a player that perfers to know more specifically what you’ll receive, then we can help you with that as well. Aside from popular disc golf starter sets which are geared toward new players, there are also some brand-specific package sets for players with a more focused taste. Let’s take a quick look at some of those brand-specific starter sets and Infinite Discs package deals:
MVP ELECTRON STARTER SET – The MVP brand is unique with their overmold “gyro” technology rims, and this is a starter set for those who want to try that unique disc design. The electron plastic is a softer, more affordable blend.
MVP PREMIUM STARTER SET – The MVP brand is unique with their overmold “gyro” technology rims. This is a starter set with more durable plastic. Though more expensive, the discs should last a lot longer.
DISCRAFT DISC GOLF SET – This is another very popular starter set in the market with easy-to-throw, lightweight discs including a putter, mid-range, and driver.
DISCRAFT DELUXE DISC GOLF SET – This is a step up from the other Discraft starter set because it adds another driver for disc variety and a small disc golf bag to carry your discs around the course.
LATITUDE 64 ADVANCED STARTER SET– If you don’t need light weight or easy-throw discs, but want to start with discs appropriate for intermediate players, this is the set for you.
INNOVA DX GLOW STARTER SET – If you want to try playing in the dark with a set of basic glow-in-the-dark discs, Innova now has a set for you, including a popular putter, mid-range, and driver.
ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT STARTER SET FOR KIDS – This is a set of three very basic discs including a putter, mid-range, and driver. But they are extremely lightweight for young children who want to join their parents or older siblings on the course.
LEGACY 2-DISC SET – This is another very basic pair of discs including a mid-range and distance driver in base plastic. The two discs are appropriate for players with strong throwing arms and some experience who just want to try out a couple popular discs by Legacy.
INFINITE DISCS 8-DISC LINE-UP – If you want an excellent deal on a complete set of discs from the Infinite Discs brand, this is a perfect way to dive in. For one low price, you can grab a collection of putter, approach, mid-range, and drivers in quality plastic blends.
COMPLETE DISC GOLF SET WITH SLINGER BACKPACK – This is another collection of 8 different discs from the Infinite Discs brand lineup, It also includes a Disc Slinger backpack to carry around your new collection. Any player would have everything they need with this package set.

Players are always looking for the best disc golf bags. As the disc golf season winds down for 2019, we thought it would be great to look back at the year and see what products and accessories were the most popular. That kind of information can come in handy for people looking for a gift for the disc golfer in their life. Or for someone considering making a purchase for themselves.
We are going to start with a very popular genre of disc golf bags, the Economy Disc Golf Bags. These are entry level bags that are good not only for people just starting out in the sport, but great for die-hard golfers who want to play a quick round, or who want to improve their game by throwing a round using only a couple discs. These bags are relatively inexpensive, ranging in price from $19.99 to $79.99, hold a decent amount of discs, and usually have room for a drink and some snacks. Once most of us have been in the sport for a while, we carry enough discs that the economy bags are not an option for regular use. Especially with the necessity to carry food and water during long rounds and tournaments. But, even when you move to a bigger bag, as mentioned, opportunities still arise to use the smaller bags. Let’s take a look at the top sellers in this category, in order of popularity.
Top 5 Inexpensive Disc Golf Bags
If you’re looking for a great low price disc golf backpack, consider from our top selling list:
Leading the pack (pardon the pun) is the popular Dynamic Discs Trooper. At $39.99 the Trooper is not the least expensive in the category, but it holds more than the rest on the list. It can carry about 18 discs in the main compartment and 3-4 discs in the upper compartment. It has a water bottle holder, and a little bit of storage for snacks, etc. The construction of the bag is good, ensuring a long life on the disc golf course. The bag comes in several colors.
The next most popular disc golf bag on the list is the Infinite Disc Slinger. This pack is perfect for the beginner or experienced disc golfers who want to to play a round with variety of discs, but not all of their throwers. It holds about 10 discs, and can handle larger discs like the Condor. The single-sling design can be adjust for either shoulder. It has a drink holder for your water bottle and a pocket for miscellaneous items. The Slinger is at the low end of the category price scale at $19.99.
The third most popular Economy Backpack Bag is the Infinite Stealth Bag. This popular bag is a kind of a niche bag. With only room for up to eight discs, the Stealth Bag is perfect for speed rounds, tough mountain courses, traveling light, or rounds using only a few discs. Though minimalist by design, the Stealth still has a water bottle holder and a pocket for snacks, phones, etc. The sleek bag even has a version with a two-liter water bladder to keep you hydrated as you play. The regular Stealth is the model that earned the third place spot, while the bladder version came in sixth place. The Stealth runs $29.99 for the regular bag, and $37.99 w/bladder. As of this posting, we are out of the Stealth and Stealth w/Bladder. We don’t anticipate getting more until 2020. Watch our weekly newsletter for updates.
The Prodigy BP3 is next on the list. This bag holds up to 17 discs. It has two zippered pouches and a drink holder. It also has a deep putter pocket on the top of the bag. The BP3 has reinforced, padded straps for comfort. The bottom of the bag is made with a waterproof material, making it great for mornings when there is dew on the ground. This bag, like the Trooper, can be used as a backpack for school, vacations, hiking, etc. The BP-3 sells for $29.99.
The final economy disc golf backpack on our list is the Innova Discover bag. This bag holds up to 15 discs. It has an internal U-frame with a divider to keep the discs from flopping around when the bag is not full. It has a Velcro pocket on one side and a drink holder on the other. It also has a zippered putter pouch on top. Use the bag on the disc golf course, day hikes, or as a school bag. The discover back ties the Slinger for the least expensive bag at $19.99.
The price point for this category of bags makes them attractive to beginners and veteran players looking for a smaller bag. They are great for someone just starting out, or for youth players who aren’t quite big enough for a larger bag. Check out our full line of economy bags here: Economy Disc Golf Backpack Bags
