Problem with this would be the cost of retrofitting all the courses that regularly host sanctioned events that aren't already equipped with those baskets.

At about 17:20, Nate and Paul are commenting on the baskets. It appears that they like them and they think Ricky and Simon like them too.

So... there you are on the pro perspective of the Mach X.

Yes David, I forgot to mention how much quieter the chain clanging sound is -- night and day, muffled is exactly the correct description.

I don't remember where in the video I heard it, but Paul missed a putt that "looks" like a spit out, but he comments how the Mach X won't catch anything on the left side for RHBH putts. He commented on how he knew this and he missed the putt... saying he should miss right if he missed it.

Spend enough time practicing, you can putt on anything.

Blaming the basket is the hallmark of a lousy putter. Or, someone looking for excuses instead of taking responsibility for poor putting.

i personally think the best catching baskets (for all types of putters / spin/ push/ fast /slow/ hyzer/anyhyzer/high/low/strong or weak side) are Innova Discatcher Pro baskets.....

but even those (which are the ones they use for all the DGWT events) can have HORRRIFIC SPIT OUTS.

2014 World Championships... Steve Brinster...

Compiled spit outs from Steve Brinster's 2014 worlds IN ONE ROUND!!! (man if you computed the strokes from his spit outs you realize how close he was to that top card in the end).

https://youtu.be/XuDbL6ciARA?t=394 (not a spit out but spit back!)
https://youtu.be/XuDbL6ciARA?t=634 (aaaaaallllmoooossst)
https://youtu.be/XuDbL6ciARA?t=945

mach x and prodigy baskets catch pretty much all fast center putts... but have horrific push outs for soft putters. all baskets have strengths and weaknesses.

True.

There's a local who is known for his putting. He won the Worlds putting contest some years ago. His putts are always hard and I have never seen one bounce out or go thru.

I agree with these posts.

And I'll add, if your putts aren't staying in on certain baskets, then you aren't throwing good putts on those baskets.

Perhaps, elite level players should be blaming themselves for poor putting.

Do PGA pros blame the hole when their putts lip out?

Ricky, probably the best putter in the world right now, had a few spit outs at the Memorial but I bet you wont hear him complaining. Same, as someone mentioned, with Paul...he knew the baskets and owned up to his mistake on putting on them.

I do like seeing various baskets for tournaments...especially yearly events like the Memorial where top pros get to know the baskets by playing there year after year. Its like a lot of other sports (baseball in particular) where each venue has their own unique flavor.
