Nah, I guess what I'm saying is this:

The whole "two players being in the circle rule" shouldn't be a worry. Generally, you keep socially distanced when someone is putting just out of respect to...

Generally you don't stand in the line of sight when someone is putting, and instead stand behind them or out of the way.

Right, that's exactly my point. In those situations you are aiming at the backboard. You shouldn't be rewarded because your putt was so offline that it hits something else and redirects in.

If you're aiming at the backboard, than a shot that misses your target short still has a chance at going in.

The farther you are off your mark, the lower the chance your putt should have to stick.

Detachable bars would probably have a durability issue, and you certainly don't want them breaking mid round.

Oh I agree there's no harm in testing it.

Shots off the backboard are bad. They missed the intended target so badly, that something else got in the way and redirected them to the target. Bars on...

Ok I found the diagram and it's exactly what I was imagining. Those bars around the basket would cause off line (i.e. bad) putts to bounce in quite often. In some instances, sure, you would need to...

Bars that far apart don't penalize missing the "wrong" side of the basket. They penalize randomness. At that point, there really isn't a "wrong" side of the basket. And obviously fate shouldn't...

To expand on my last post, a single bar may make it harder to putt from 15-20ft than it is to putt from 30-40ft. If the bar is directly in your path, you are throwing with pretty severe hyzer/anny to...

I just put a makeshift bar on my basket, stared at it for a while, and did some measurements.

A single vertical bar in front of the chains would only cause a "shot-shaped" putt for about 60...

I can't recall anything specific, but I've seen posts where people claim it makes discs too understable. It doesn't seem to sell well either. Didn't Discmania stop producing discs in G-line? Or am I...

I tried to find a video of him step putting but couldn't. I did see a vid a Uli putting the way you are saying though. That seems so awkward to me, but I guess there's a way to make it work.

When you say 2 pros per tee I assume you mean 2 per card. You can't enforce rules that way since there is no one to second a call.

Also, disc golf being on ESPN right now would certainly give the...

That isn't how step putting works. With step putting, you are releasing at basically the same time your left foot leaves the ground (assuming rhbh). Very similar to a jump putt, except your right...
