Do most poles use the same threading for screwing on baskets?
Right now I have Line Wallishticks, and I want to get some pow baskets for them to replace the small park baskets they have now. Line sells their own pow baskets but while looking around I saw other baskets that I liked more, so my question is: Are most pole baskets compatible with most poles, or does each company have their own way of doing things?
Yes and no.
In my experience as a shop employee most baskets will fit most poles.
The NO comes from BD selling a basket that mounts to a larger than normal diameter pole tip.
Try to find them local and bring your poles with you. I'm always willing to open a package to guarentee fitment for a customer. If the shop won't do that buy them take them outside and try them before you leave. If they dont fit hassle free return.
One last thing. Pole baskets can be hard AF to get on and off.
The majority aren't threaded, but have several rings on the pole that the basket just snaps over.
I usually just keep an eye out for lost baskets on the hill, in the parking lot, or left on a pair of broken poles in the trash at the bottom of the lift. Its been working out really well for me so far. Most baskets seem to fit the same size although they definitely dont all screw on the same way as lines do. But if you lose one its cool cause its like the circle of life or something
