Regarding the quality levels, we've found that the store-bought plastic sets are the lowest quality of all. Whether they are a molded plastic or extruded plastic (which mimics the home made PVC type), these games are so cheaply made that we actually laughed out loud when we saw them. They are very thin and light, the bolas are clunky plastic that resembles a dog toy stretched over a ball bearing, and the carry bag (if at all) tore the first time we put the game away.
Obviously we are proud of the Ladder Golf brand units, but if a person can't afford them, or needs a game in a pinch, I would recommend the home made PVC style. They're still cheap, but you won't have paid $30 for totally disappointing junk.

For anyone considering wrapping the rungs in duct tape, I offer this piece of advice... don't do it. You will completely remove any challenge from the game. The PVC rungs are slippery and give very little resistance to the bola ropes. The result is bolas spinning smoothly around the rungs. If you put anything over the PVc, even paint, you might as well just use velcro because the bolas are just going to stick when they hit.
