As many of you know, the now discontinued LL Bean stripping baskets were a hell of a deal at $20.00. I was always going to buy one but never got around to it. Still kicking myself for not acting quicker. My rubbermaid basket works fine, but I always wished it was slightly larger and I like the built in cones. I was doing some surfing tonight to see if I could find a used one. I couldn't find any on EBay, etc, but I did find these. http://www.dblzp.com/basket.htm I found these at shops in Norway, Spain, Sweden, Germany and Denmark. It was a interesting online shopping experience for sure. Basically a knock off the the LL Bean basket except for the price, $78.00 in good old US greenbacks after figuring the exchange rate. Just a bit to steep on the price I'd say. That price makes the Orvis model look like a deal at $59.00. which it isn't. The good thing is, I have heard rumor LL Bean is developing a new stripping basket due to the demand for their discontinued baskets. Anyone have an old LL Bean basket they are interested in selling?
