I had the LL Bean basket. I bought it to save money, but didn't like it for several reasons. First, it was too wide, so when I hauled downward I was always afraid of hitting my hand. Second, the basket isn't deep enough, so it hangs tilted downward around my waist and the line, therefore, often falls out of the basket. Third, it doesn't have enough cones to help keep the line from tangling. I now have an Orvis stripping basket (a hard plastic one.) Granted it's more than twice the cost but too me it's well, well worth it.
