New basket from DGA, interesting concept. Wonder how heavy the chains are. Any experiences?

If they go on sale for cheaper on Black Friday, I might get one of these.

I like the idea, and the price is decent. Have to keep an eye out for reviews when folks start buying and using them.

I really like the versatility of the basket. I think the price is OK, relative what most other baskets cost of this type. However I wish there were a few more chains in the outer loop. It looks that when you use the basket in "normal mode" you have to take chains from the inner circle and put them on the outer one. I think when you do that the chains on the outside are really sparse.

Got mine last Friday and played with it over the weekend. Overall I really like it for it's versatility and the price point it's at. Quality of construction seems great but will no more as it sits over the winter in the Pacific Northwest. "Normal" mode seems to catch fine when compared to other "practice" type baskets but no way does it catch like the top end ones. A couple of annoying cons for me.

1. Yes you have to move the chains from Normal to precision. Not a big deal but would be cooler if you just removed the uter ring without doing anything else.
2. The clam from moving it into the lower Pro position is a cool idea but there should be some marking on the pole to note the positions. If one is picky about the normal position they will have to measure it with a normal basket as there is no indication on where to set the pole.

I'll gladly post pictures of anything if requested.

Maple Valley WA checking in. No pics needed here, but if you can report back in a month or two regarding it's durability and usability, it would be greatly appreciated. I still plan to give myself a Mach Lite for Xmas and get the Shift come spring, but good reviews may change my mind...

Thanks !!!

So I really like the ability to "shift" around the target. Everything is solid and has a loud beautiful chain crashing sound. Pro mode is tough we will see if it helps my putting over time. I have neighbors so I do miss the instep as with it's interfere chains it was a quiet basket at night time. Then I saw that the inner ring on the top of the instep is the same as the shift. So opened up the chain "S" hooks and now it's a shift Instep.

Anyone able to compare this to a marksman/mvps version?

Is it more sturdy?
