all rubber baskets?

While watching round 2 coverage of the Vibram Open I heard mention of a "all rubber basket in the works". Is this something of interest? I don't see the need for such an innovation, but I'll allow that I haven't given it too much thought. What would be the benefit of an all rubber basket? Quieter perhaps? Less disc wear? Fewer bounce outs? What? Thoughts?

The rubber would absorb the energy not deflect it so disc hits with force rubber absorbs the force disc drops

Read this, I feel it will help some people grasp the concepts of bounce outs, spits ect.

i dont know if this was a joke or what but if a rubber type chain system helped fix the game's problem with spitouts i'm all for it.

if the disc hits the target it should count.
