I just wish prodigy would use a different paint shade than blend-with-vegetation green... Otherwise, they are all fine to me. I can't blame baskets when I miss the chains altogether

They did orange ones at a course near here and they are much better.

Out of baskets I've played on most:

Mach X
DISCatcher
Veterans
Mach V
and a distant next place: Prodigy T1's. Not my favorite, the only people I've ever met that liked them were the people who ordered them.

I'm not including Mach III's and II's, because they're suitable for beginner level courses and what not, but not in the same contention as the "big boys"

I've heard great things about the MVP Portals, as have been mentioned here, and will be playing on them soon.

Yellow Discatchers fade, so do light blues, as well as scuff. I'd keep that in mind when ordering. Mach's without powdercoat are grey, but the powedercoated ones are great (shout out to the hot pink Mach X's at Spring Valley, TX)

If you can't putt on a Mach III, you clearly need to work on your putting.

Respectfully, A Big Boy Putter.

To be fair, that's probably more due to that course turning into the bottom of a lake a few times a year than shoddy manufacturing.

I've seen plenty of 10 year old DISCatchers with rusty chains and peeling, fading yellow paint, and they are no where near any lakes. Other than that, they're OK baskets.

Mach 3's are good all around baskets, IMO. What problem do people have with them? Wish they had some color to them, though. They blend right into the background.

Mach 2's are a step down from the 3's in all around catching ability, but it's easy enough to get used to them.

Overall, people online complain too much about baskets. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, and anyone with any talent should be able to figure them out in short order. The pros and some commentators seem to be the biggest whiners of all. I think some of that is motivated by an opportunity to degrade a competing companies product.

For pure catching ability I've always preferred the Innova DC Pro-24.

The gold standard: Discatcher Pros (Ubiquitous and great catchers across a broad range of styles and shots)
Best catching for crisp play: Mach X (Require some commitment, catch like champs)
Sleeper: Gateway Titan Pro (Catch really well, smaller target area is ideal as a practice basket)

Thought I would hate Re-tire baskets but have now become one of my favorites.
