Introducing the RPM Helix 2 Disc Golf Basket, our premium basket with our unique ‘wine-glass’ design. Some would say the most ‘beautiful’ disc golf basket on the market. RPM has been making baskets since 2006 and continues to innovate in search of the perfect design. Here are some of the latest key features employed and why we believe this is the best catching basket on the market.
1) The chain supporting spokes are a Z shape which not only adds strength but also provides the perfect sliding angle to help absorb the disc impact. Two sliding sets of 14 chains and a set of 7 ‘Necklace loops’ are included.
2) The Helix shape is form and function, when we made the Wine Glass basket we produced a stronger design the looked good and provided a deep ‘bucket’ to hold the discs. Moving the 8mm Wire to the exterior of the basket spokes gave two benefits; A) the discs could no longer skip off the internal rings B) It added a sculptural form meaning for the non disc golfer the proportions and shape were pleasing to look at in a public park. The only downside is they are slightly larger for shipping and a bit harder to make.
3) The outer and inner chain sets connect to their own centre rings, this reduces the bulk swing back you can get with too much chain weight. The Necklace loops provide interference for the inner chain set preventing the chains from flying back and away, this feature dramatically reduces ‘bounce outs’ from the centre pole.
4) Reduced diameter of the chain rings means the deflection angle of the inner and outer chain set directs the discs down and not out!
5) 3mm Wall thickness of the centre pole means it is very strong and harder for vandals to bend.
Presenting a flawless synergy of art and practicality, this basket will enhance any disc golf course.
