As soon as I get a full-time job I'm buying this baby.

There are open rec fields at the YMCA right behind my apartment complex that are calling my name.

On the set up for slopes.
I played an 18 hole temp this weekend that had 17 mach lites in use. There were all placed on level ground, but it did get me thinking about how to place one on a slope. You could use scrap wood, like somebody mentioned, but how about driving a tent stake (or similar item) in the ground on the uphill side of the basket placement desired. Then pull the stake out and slide the uphill leg of the basket in the "pilot hole" where the stake was placed. I suspect a little experimenting with the "pilot hole" angle and you'd be good to throw.

Well, I got the basket and I have to say I am 90% pleased with the product. It catches nicely, it folds up and is storage able in 2 min. or less. The 10% I wish I could fix is the legs. It's sits well on flat ground but something where I didn't need to jimmy rig it every place I decide to set up...

I'm trying to create a flexible wedge for mine right now.

I don't have pics at the moment because it is still an idea but I'll let you know what I'm thinking...

Imagine a similar system as a small car jack but put under one side of a 35"x35" platform.

Using two platforms, the lower being a few inches larger than the top. The bottom platform holds two retractable notched peg systems that rise up and notches into the upper platform at different heights, creating different angles. The bottom platform could have a few drilled holes though it, to allow staking it down to the sloped surface.

I hope this makes sense...

When I asked PGA they said they "weren't currently in stock, but blue and black catch just as well."

Does anyone know if/how the Mach Lite is related to Eurodisc's Chainwalker basket? They look alike.
