this was my tone setup. bigger target area than i wanted but being a painter it was easy to come across the pails. screwed the top, zip tied the bail. we drilled into the bottom of the limb and hammered rebar about 4" up the hole, leaving 6" exposed so it just became a spike at the bottom. easily moved, no impact, yet stood in place solid.

I actually computed the effective success zone for baskets based on data from an ace race. It works out to be the equivalent of hitting an area 13.25 inches tall by 9.5 inches wide with the nose of the disc.

Tone poles are 4 inches more forgiving on each side (they count it if the edge of the disc hits, not just the center). So a 1.5 inch wide tone pole should be 13.25 inches tall to be as difficult as a basket.

My 5-gallon bucket is 10 inches wide at the bottom, and 11 inches wide at the top, so to be equal to a basket, I should use only the bottom 7 inches of it.

JAKE master, those look pretty awesome to me, something maybe half the radius of a 5gal would work perfectly. Height wise it looks spot on.

Has anybody played these tonal targets with chains? I saw these in Wisconsin when visiting my daughter at Madison. They were south of Madison at Hidden Valley RV park. Made the target a little easier to hit and had a combination chain chime and drum tone sound.

^^^My only ace in the past three years was on one of those! (And, unfortunately I really kind of, can't count it!) (Especially since the tees were marked so poorly that it was really a safari round!)

There was a company maybe out of Texas that actually produced a commercial product called the Tone Pole in the early 90s. I played them on the Yadkinville course in NC. They did have chains a little tighter to the pole and more nicely secured than the ones in the picture above. I tried googling the company but mainly got leads to pole dancing lessons. I'm thinking they went out of business in the 90s before they would have had a website.
