Foamed PUR: BasKette, the Fish Line Basket

Outdoor equipment made from PUR

KetteGear is the entrepreneur behind the product BasKette – a practical fish line basket intended for both deep-sea fishing and fly fishing. The product designer wanted to use polyurethane for this new outdoor product for active fishermen because of its unique properties. The result is a practical and multifunctional design.


Floats on the water

BasKette is cast as a sandwich construction from foamed black polyurethane and consists of a light core and a hard, firm shell. The basket is cast in one single piece in a specially developed aluminium mould and has various fine details like e.g. notches to hold the fishing rod, logo on the side, cones at the bottom and holes to drain off the sea water 

BasKette easily floats on the water, and the lightweight material makes the basket easy to handle and transport. Thanks to the robustness of the material, the basket can also be used as a stool/seat.


Weather resistant – also under rough weather conditions

The polyurethane used for the manufacture of the BasKette is weather resistant and robust. The surface is tight and the material is resistant to e.g. salt water. BasKette is extremely impact-proof and therefore withstands the impacts it may be exposed to when used in the wild, close to stone, sand, ice and sea water. During the product development we endeavoured to create a product that withstands even rough weather conditions.


  • Customer statement

    “We wanted to use polyurethane for the BasKette, because we were looking for a material that was lighter than plastic and that would float on the water. We contacted Tinby, knowing that they had great experience with this material – and they gave us a competitive price. Product development is seldom predictable, and throughout the process we had an open dialogue and constructive sparring with Tinby. The result is an exquisite outdoor product with unique properties that are not seen so far in competing products.”
