I've been slowly moving to stripping baskets that are smaller in cross section but deeper- seems to work better for me. Picked up a plastic tub at AC Moore last year that's around 60% the size of my last tupperware version, but ~3" deeper. Worked great right away with 1/2 dozen weed whacker fingers around 2" long inserted from the bottom, and has continued to so so even after most of them fell out.

Latest purchase (untried as of yet) is the $2.99 hardware store version of the $$$$$ "Flyline Tamer" I saw in Marlboro- a small but deep curved basket with a long clip for hooking it onto your belt.
