Interesting. Looks like putts meant to go off the band might get shot up and over on that incline.

Looks really nice, but why the need to improve on the Mach X? I thought everyone liked those.

Edit: Oh, I guess its cheaper by $50. Maybe theyll stop making Mach III's or V's?

I know some will disagree, but they could certainly discontinue the Mach III and it wouldn't break my heart.

I'm in the no chastity belt camp. I like the angled tops, especially when outfitted with some of their vinyl basket "blades". That's enough visibility.

I don't understand how the chastity belt is considered a disadvantage. My experience has been that a high putt gets stopped dead for a drop in while the angled top can launch that same putt out 10-20' from the basket.

The catching area of the basket is the same, correct?

I would but to stop the Mach V is okay to stop since this looks like a Mach V upgrade.

But if you do not have those vinyl top bands then the basket gets hard to see on some holes as one is not able to put a number topper on the Mach V model unlike the Mach III or Mach X.
