Default DGA Mach 7

The Mach 7 is relatively new. Any feedback on these yet?

Not a fan of the wide, angled top band. Bad enough I have to clack off the new Prodigy bands at Hudson Mills.....now I have to go chase down my bad skip or roll off of one of these baskets. Hmmmmm.....maybe if I learn to hit the chains more often?

They look interesting. 28 chains, 3 rows, solid construction. Assuming the orange ring/band isn't an option you can opt out of, they appear to be pretty visible. I'd like to play a round on a course with those to see for myself.

After decades of playing DG... finally... a basket that gives you a reason to putt better.
Recent advances in DG equipment = mind blown.

Interesting the price of a single basket is $420. Could they know their target audience?

For a large 9 or 18 hole install they are considerable cheaper than a mach X. They come with DGAs warranty which kicks Innova's ass. They are also NOT a Mach 3, mach 5, or chainstar.

A local private course was at odds amongst the active members with regards to Mach Xs being installed. A few of the course pros did not like them. They ended up going with the 7s and saving money along with placating the locals.

Those remind me a bit of these that are at Beaver Ranch, I believe they are locally made by someone in that area. I don't recall if a disc can fit through the top. But these, the disc will deflect down if you hit the band.

I read this as the “orange powder coating isn’t an option you can opt out of” and was going to say “you know me too well”. 😆

I’m intrigued, the Xs were a little too radical for me, it’s nice to see DGA offering a top quality modern basket without the need to get the (unproven imo) linked chain design.

I strongly desire to see and putt at this basket.
