Perhaps a prototype in their shop but never released?

My guess is that the MkX is the "Mk6" as it came between the Mk5 and the Mk7 regarding launch dates. They just didn't call it that because they thought they had a 'better marketing hook' in calling it the "X".

I'm an Innova Pro 28 fanboy and this chain assembly looks similar, so I'm down.

I'm talking to DGA about these since a local course might be looking to upgrade.. Apparently the 1st pallet of 7s just went out yesterday so yes the basket is very new.

Hoping to buy a single, demo unit so I'll post feedback on here if that ever happens.

I'm also hoping to convince them to make the Mach0.7 basket. Like a Mach 7, but 70% scaled down.

OK... I'll bite.
Why the interest in a basket built to a 70% scale? Simply about a smaller target being more challenging (like a bullseye basket, just not quite as extreme)?

Don't take the bait!

Yes you got it mostly right. My issue with the bullseye style baskets is YES they increase the challenge, but they just don't catch well enough to be "fun" to play on for regular play. My hope is that (the royal) we take the established, working basket design and just shrink it down to increase the challenge (but maintain the fun factor) when the hole or course or event calls for it.

I think that it's called a Skillshot.

Never been a big fan of the bands for that reason however the great catchability of the Innova baskets is why I like those.

I'm looking to buy more of a standard basket and I'm highly considering this. I'm hoping someone has a review soon to help me sway the choice.

1) I didn't want to correct you...seemed like you were on a roll.

2) No one likes "band clack"
...but it usually beats going long (which I think might be the alternative a good bit of the time).
