Top 5 Inexpensive Portable Disc Golf Baskets of 2019

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:

 

  1. DGA Mach Lite
  2. MVP Black Hole Pro
  3. MVP Black Hole Practice
  4. Axiom Pro
  5. Dynamic Discs Recruit

 

DGA Mach Lite

DGA Mach Lite Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

 

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!)

 

MVP Black Hole Pro

 

MVP Black Hole Pro Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

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

 

 

 

Black Hole Practice

 

MVP Black Hole Practice Portable Basket

 

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.

 

 

 

Axiom Pro

 

Axiom Pro Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Dynamic Discs Recruit

 

Dynamic Discs Recruit Portable Disc Golf Basket

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 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.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – NOVEMBER 12TH 2019

Welcome to another Top 20 Tuesday sales chart. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. The chart is created by sales figures that are pulled from all Infinite Discs sales for the previous week — our customers decide the results with their purchases.

Top Twenty Tuesday for November 12th, 2019

#1 – Tour ESP ANAX
#2 – Signature Swirly S-Line DD3
#3 – Ethos MANTRA
#4 – Star DESTROYER
#5 – K2 Glow BERG
#6 – Swirly S-Line FD
#7 – D-Line P2
#8 – K1 Glow BERG
#9 – K1 Glow GOTE
#10 – Cosmic Electron Firm ENVY
#11 – R-Pro PIG
#12 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend SPHINX
#13 – Star WRAITH
#14 – Cosmic Electron Soft ENVY

#16 – Zero Medium Moonshine PURE
#17 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#18 – ESP ZEUS
#19 – Star Firebird FL
#20 – ESP BUZZZ

The chart this week was shuffled around quite a bit by new disc offerings. The Tour ESP ANAX jumped to #1 as a Paul McBeth “1060 rated” release in limited quantities. So, it spiked, but won’t stay at the top because of limited quantities. The return of the Signature Swirly S-Line DD3 “Cloud Breaker” pushed that disc to #2. The new, debut disc release by Thought Space Athletics, the MANTRA in Ethos plastic jumped to #3 which is great for their first disc release.

The Kastaplast glow run of BERG and GOTE discs remained on the top 20 chart this week, as did two different ENVY discs, thanks to the popular Goblin King stamp on those.

Here is a look at how many times different brands showed up on the chart this week:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The number 6 spot was taken by the Swirly S-Line FD. It appears that nobody saw that one coming, as a newer release and without a signature stamp. It’s just a cool FD. So, no winner this week, but give it a try for next week!

Best Economy Disc Golf Bags of 2019

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:

  1. Dynamic Discs Trooper Backpack
  2. Infinite Discs Slinger Bag
  3. Infinite Discs Stealth Bag
  4. Prodigy BP3 Disc Golf Backpack
  5. Innova Discover Backpack

Top Selling Economy Backpack - DD Trooper

Dynamic Discs Trooper Backpack

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.

 

 

Infinite Discs Slinger Bag

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.

 

 

Infinite Stealth Bag Water Bladder BackpackInfinite Stealth Disc Golf Bag with Hydration Pack

Infinite Stealth Bag

Infinite Stealth Bag w/Bladder

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.

Prodigy BP3 Economy Disc Golf Bag

Prodigy BP3

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.

 

Innova Discoverpack Cheap Disc Golf Bag

Innova Discover Pack

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

The R-Pro PIG jumped up to the #2 spot with another fun stamp release. The Lucid X Suspect took the #4 spot because of the Paige Pierce signature release (now a 5-times world champion). The Z Glo Buzzz hit the chart at #10 because of the spooky Halloween edition. The Luster Aviar3 had an XXL limited edition stamp that took it onto the chart at #13, etc. So, a lot of new releases were in there.

Let’s take a look at how many times different brands hit the chart. If you add up Axiom, MVP, and Streamline (all the same manufacturer) then there were NINE of the 20 spots taken by them:

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – OCTOBER 22ND 2019

Welcome to another Top 20 Tuesday sales chart. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. The chart is created by sales figures that are pulled from all Infinite Discs sales for the previous week — our customers decide the results with their purchases.

Top Twenty Tuesday for October 22nd, 2019

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#3 – D-Line P2
#4 – Star WRAITH
#5 – S-Line PD FREAK
#6 – Splatter S-Blend X-Out PHARAOH
#7 – DX X-Out LEOPARD
#8 – K2 BERG
#9 – Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH
#10 – Star TEEBIRD
#11 – Star VALKYRIE
#12 – Tortoise Line METEOR HAMMER
#13 – Tortoise Line TOMAHAWK
#14 – ESP MALTA
#15 – Nexus FIREFLY
#16 – Electron Firm PILOT
#17 – Star X-Out DESTROYER
#18 – R-Pro PIG
#19 – DX AVIAR
#20 – Star SHRYKE

Most of the chart completely switched-out this week with only 7 of the discs from last week’s chart still holding onto a spot in the Top 20. That is very rare. The Innova X-Out sale from last week did shake things up a little, but we see other oddities in this chart as well. For example, the ZEUS disappeared completely from the chart, which we haven’t seen happen for months! The Star DESTROYER jumped back to its old, familiar 1st position, followed by the LUNA which is still selling well. I’m sure we’ll see the Zeus back on the chart soon enough.

The Splatter S-Blend X-Out PHARAOH jumped to #6 as buyers took the opportunity to test that new run early with the factory 2nd discs. The two newest Tortoise Line discs from YIKUN also jumped onto the chart with the METEOR HAMMER and TOMAHAWK still getting a lot of attention with each restock.

Innova ran away easily with the most spots on this week’s chart with that x-out sale and some of their other strong sellers like the Star Wraith, R-Pro Pig, Nexus Firefly, etc. Here is a look at how many times the different brands placed on the chart this week:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The number 20 spot is the hardest to guess of them all, since the lower the position on the chart, the more shuffling there is. Nobody guessed Star Shryke, though there were some close guesses for other discs near the bottom. Try again for next week!

Top-Selling Discs On Sale for This Week

We thought it would be fun to put some of the long-term, top-selling discs on sale for this week, in case you need to restock after a busy disc golf summer season. The prices are automatically discounted on these disc models (no discount code is necessary).

DESTOYER – Distance Driver – ON SALE!
EXODUS – Fairway Driver – ON SALE!
BUZZZ – Midrange Disc – ON SALE!
P2 – Putter – ON SALE!

The DESTROYER had some competition this year as the top-selling distance driver as it pushed to keep up with sales of the new Discraft ZEUS and other new releases like the Discmania DD3 and the Dynamic Discs RAIDER.

There are some fun Destroyers in stock, aside from just stock stamps. There are a lot of custom stamp designs, plus some cool black Star Destroyers and Star Dyed Destroyers.

There are also a few signature series Destroyers in special plastics, Shimmer Star and Swirly Star, plus the new Halloween Destroyers.

You should be able to find plenty of different plastic types and plenty of different weights. Remember, when you click to SELECT YOUR DISC then you can sort by weight, from high to low, or low to high. You can also narrow your search to a specific plastic type by using the drop-down at the top left to pick the plastic you want to see.

There are also a few of the Paul McBeth 4x stamped editions in stock and a nice supply of the newer run of Ricky Wysocki stock editions.

We also though it would be fun to offer a fairway driver companion to go along with your distance drivers, so we’ve also discounted the Infinite Discs EXODUS. This was the first disc released in the Infinite Discs line which is manufactured by Innova Champion Discs. It is a great “power fairway” that can be thrown for shorter, precision shots as well as longer drives off the tee. It is very similar to the classic “Eagle L” by Innova and has become a favorite of many players from intermediate to pro.

It’s available in S-Blend (comparable to Star), C-Blend (comparable to Champion), and I-Blend (a long-lasting, inexpensive, Infinite Blend of Pro plastic).

The BUZZZ has always been among the top-selling mid-range discs on the market, if not the very top. It found new life with a Paul McBeth signature edition this year and has reached all-new heights of popularity. We currently have a great supply of the most popular edition in ESP Plastic, along with a lot of other choices, ranging from Jawbreaker to Full Foil. Again, simply click to SELECT YOUR DISC and you can pick your favorites.

To top it all off, we figured you’d need a discounted putter as well, so why not go with one of the top-selling putters on the market, the P2 by Discmania. We currently have a supply in many different plastics, from the softer, base plastic D-Line to premium blends like C-Line Glow. Check out the selection and remember, these prices are only good through Saturday, October 12th.
