Default Re: stripping basket advice

The problem with a basket like that is all the line ends up in the center of the mesh and will tangle. I'm sure some people make it work but as far as I'm concerned you're just asking for trouble
My buddy uses a mesh basket but has homemade "fingers" to keep the line loops separate. You can see it in the bottom right corner of the picture
My homemade basket you can find on this page
