Hitting the target area, the Skill Shot catches my putts just fine. It's just that it is such a smaller area. Slightly off target left or right, and especially, slightly high or low, that would have stuck on a larger target end up on the ground. If you're going through a stack of 10+, you really notice that extra time spent bending over collecting putters. Time I'd rather use actually putting.

All right, fair. I like the smaller target for practice putting.
To say it doesn't catch well is, in my opinion, incorrect. But yes, it is a smaller target area.

Yeah, they actually do catch pretty well when you're on target (which I rarely am...).
They're like a little disc trap.

I chose the Traveller, because the Mach Lite isn't available over here, but I'm pretty happy I did.

First, the negatives: I get plenty of spit-throughs, especially if I release my putt on a hyzer. It's actually forced me to straighten my putt out. Also, everything you putt into the band will go in. I just mentally translate spit-thoughs into hits and band putts into misses.

The big big positive is the weight. Even if you keep it in your car and don't lug it around on your back like I do, it's still a massive benefit when putting. You can easily carry it into a new position to putt from different angles or introduce new obstacles.
