My Mach Lite's the same way. I think that the shiny metal finish is newer b/c I've just recently seen them like that.

I've had mine for about 2 years now and it's held up great. I definitely would recommend it over the Skill Shot. They're about the same price, but the catching area on the Skill Shot is much smaller while the Mach Lite is the same size a permanent baskets.

Some might say that having a small target would improve your putting but I think that when a putt would be made or missed on a regulation basket builds more confidence than moving from a smaller to a larger basket.

Here are a couple more details they don't tell you about in the Cliff's Notes...



The feet have split rings and an additional hole for securing the base. This thing will not tip over on level ground from a disc hitting it. It's way too solid for that. Wind may be a problem though.



This is the little hootis that tightens the rim of the lower basket. A drawstring of sorts. I pulled it a little bit, so maybe the rim won't be as forgiving.

Great review! The Mach Lite Basket was on my Christmas list but Santa had other plans.

This thread makes me depressed....one of the few things I didn't care for on my Mach Lite was that it was painted instead of just being a plain metal finish...

I still love it.... it is a great basket and hasn't give me problems...I just like the sleek metal look better.

Can you use acetone or paint thinner to remove the paint?....maybe not, just saw the picture you posted. don't know if you could do that and have it look nice.

Great review of the basket and nice pictures!

Great review. I too have been in the market for a portable basket or two, and this one is looking better and better.

Mach Lite is a great portable basket. It gets more use in the winter with shorter days and worse weather.

It would be nice though if the feet had little plastic pads on them. I tried to think of where I saw that before and then it hit me, on cymbal stands.
