Hey Midnight. I really like the FLX magnet. It goes straight has a nice grip pattern on the inside rim as far as how well it sticks the chains i'm unsure. I don't use it to putt with. I still love the soft magnet to grab chains and it was getting a bit beat and turning over when i put some power behind it. That's what I got the FLX for up shots and tee shots this thing is a laser. Get one you won't regret it. sorry took so long to get back to you I was at worlds.
