Wow, surprised by this comment. I think Prodigy is the baskets I like the least on our major courses around here. We have Innova Discatcher, Mach X, Chainstar, Prodigy & good ol Mach III

I have seen this spit out scenario more times than I can remember.

Disc comes in just over the cage, strong side, on a hyzer.
It hits the chains right at the smaller, top ring.
Disc pushes the chains to the pole, as it slides down a bit.
Disc hits the larger bottom ring
The chain assembly swings back, and the bottom ring flings the disc right back out of the basket.

So true, I have a lot of perfect putt spits due to that larger ring. The leading edge gets caught in there perfectly nose down and pops right back out.

Well, yeah, of course. There is a solution to every spit out and I am definitely in the "it's on you to adjust to the basket" camp.

Just sayin - Mach V's seem to have a big hole there that other baskets do not because of that big ring.

I think it's important to know what type of basket you're putting to. All of them have tendencies to spit out and catch in specific locations and with different style of putts. For example, Mach 3's do not like low or hyzer putts but they do great with high spin putts. Discatchers seem to be a bit finicky high left. Prodigy baskets seem to spit hard putts back at you more than other baskets.

All in all, I would say I have found that discatchers seem to be the most fair from my experience.

We have a LOT of old Mach IIs and some Mach IIIs down here, around the Phoenix area. Old Discatchers are out here, too. The Mach V is the most forgiving basket I have putted on, in a Long time, IMO.
