Glow Devices that go in basket
November 25, 2013 01:41PM
Last year I used 16 inch LED Foam Batons that I zip tied to the inside of the basket. They worked really well for lighting up the basket and surrounding green, however several people thought they contributed to bounce outs. Does anyone have a better idea. I am considering using this light strands, but it will take most of my glow budget to do that, and I wont be able to light up to much of the course.

these are 7ft long LED strands that are battery powered

Can you weave the foam ones around the inside/top of the basket rather than affixing it to the center pole?

no they are hard plastic that is not bendable underneath the foam.

Could you tie or strap them to the bottom of the basket its slef or to the top of the basket which ever would light up the surrounding area and still light enough of the target for putting?

I literally spent days last year tryin to figure this out, and strapping to the pole underneath the basket never occured to me.

Either strap them to the pole under the bucket, or use the long glow necklaces. They are small in diameter and sit inside the basket with ease.

I had the long glow necklaces in the basket as well last year, but they really didnt do much. The LED baton's lit up the basket, and about 20 feet around it in a circle.

Try it strapped to the pole on a basket and strapped to the bottom of the basket it's self on another and see which lights better, I'd also try one strapped inside the chastity belt (if you have innova baskets. That would mask most of the "direct" viewing of the LED's and give indirect lighting to players which will help them see better when they're in lower light areas.


I find that moving from brightly lit areas to darker areas make it harder to see your surroundings in the darker areas as it takes your eyes longer to adjust back to the dark.

Thats why i use green, Like night vision, the color green does not mess with your eyes adjustment to the dark.

really depends on intensity and wavelength of the green honestly. There are some greens that really mess with it and others that don't. Red light is the best for not messing with your normal adjusted nighttime vision but isn't as good at lighting up the area. A good rule of thumb, the more an area is lit up, the more it affects your vision in the darkness and the longer it will take your eyes to adjust.
