My Hive knock-off fits that bill. 21 lbs, breaks down well, etc. I'm looking for 1 minute setup/take down, super easy transport, and no tools.

Gonna see what Mando's has on the floor to fondle, once due diligence is done...

It would get my vote.
I should add to this.
The fabric skin on the Skil Shot is going to tear where the metal ribs poke into it. Mine tore a bit the first month I had it, and I received a replacement set from Innova. I did what I could to pad the ends of the ribs, but the replacement set is starting to tear a bit now too. However, I've got an MVP basket in the garage now, so the Skil Shot stays in the bag in the shed in case I ever want to take a basket somewhere.

I got my Mach Lite from Mando's; they usually have them in stock and one on display. Fairly sure they also have the Traveler and Skillshot (and M-14, though that's not in the running here) there by the windows. You can probably toss some putters into all of them if that helps with the final decision.

MS, that's the plan. Tom always gets the first look on everything because he supports us a little more than Amazon does.

Willing to pay extra to those who back our sport.

Absolutely; definitely could get stuff cheaper online, but gotta support the local scene.

I have a pair of Traveler's. Use one for camping, practice at the beach, picnics, etc. The other I keep in my course's supply closet along with a Skill Shot, and space them out for practice putting at our weekly. Absolutely hate the Skill Shot for practicing. The Skill Shot's tiny target area forces you to hone your aim sure, but unless your practice regimen is undisciplined and loose, you don't need a tiny basket to do that. A piece of colored electrical tape on a regular size basket can hone your aim just as effectively, and you wont have to bend over as much collecting spit outs. The Traveler gets plenty of spit throughs but I get more in the bottom of the "cage" than I do when practicing back toward the Skill Shot.

I'd go with a Mach Lite if you don't need extreme portability. Go with a Skill Shot if you want every putt that doesn't hit the absolute dead center to end up on the ground.

Already have a DD Marksman for that.

When I feel cocky and full of myself, it sets me right quickly.

I love my mach lite. Modified it and couldn't be happier!

Tucked the chains in an inch or two on all sides to make the target smaller and added a few more chains towards the very center of the basket. A few bucks and an hour at most of my time was well worth it.

How hard are you putting?
The skill shot catches better than some regular course baskets.

This is what I did with mine. I really like the target area now and it catches better than when I bought it.
