It's not an instep, but I thought I'd post a little modification I did to my Mach Lite.



My cheap-ass solution to spit-outs, and a way to quiet the chains down if I decide to do some night-putting. Works pretty well, and attaches really easily with two carabiners.





All I did was take a piece of twine, doubled it so it was a loop and tied it just a little longer than the width of the towel. Cut a hole in the middle of the towel and put the twine in the crease, so the twine could pop out of the hole I made in the middle of the towel. Attached one carabiner to the twine coming out the middle attached to chains, and the other carabiner I use to lock both sides of the towel/twine together and hook to the chains.

Swap the poles to make a smaller target area and enter training mode for "no low putts":

I have had this instep basket for seven years. As you can see I have added a center ring of chains to the basket. It has lived outside all of the seven years I have had it, in the type of environment that you see in the pics. If it can stand up to the climate here in northern New England as well as it has then I would think that it could work for your church course as well. I know that there are a lot of haters of the instep basket out there, and some of them have even replied in this thread, but with the extra chains it catches as well or better than any basket out there. It is a good deal for the money. All it cost me was thirty bucks for the extra chains. And a six pack for a friend to make the fourteen tack welds. Hate it or love it, the choice is yours, but the condition of my basket speaks for its self. Oh I have repainted it once about three years ago.

It doesn't remove the sounds of chains, but what it does remove is the sound of the disc/chains hitting against the metal pole in the middle. Helps remove some of the racket, but not all.
