Yeah I get why the Mach III is being stopped to have the same amount of baskets in the permanent lineup to about 4 if you include the Mach II, as the Mach V is not being replaced by the Mach VII and both seem a bit redundant.

Now the Mach II since late 2019-early 2020 has been touted as being a Fully galvanized basket, not sure if older New style Mach II were Galvanized as well and I missed that.

I am pretty sure every Mach I, II, III, and V I have ever seen have been galvanized.

Being able to successfully putt on Mach3 and Mach7/MachX means you have better control of what you're doing with your putter.
I've never heard that analogy before, but I like it.
