Can be done, will be done. Only a matter of when. Keep your kleenex close so you're ready when it happens.
You say salty, I say practical.

Not advocating for the rule change, but I guess it does not really impact me.

Chris Dickerson at #5 is the only guy in the top 6 who step putts. Calvin at #6, same as Eagle, stand and deliver.

Same thing on FPO really. I have Paige, Hailey, Evelinna, Lisa and Holly as the top FPO putters and pretty much all 5 are stand and deliver until they hit well outside the circle.
I agree with these posts. A simple weight transfer with a nice push off the back foot will give you the putting distance required for almost any C2 putt (unless low ceiling maybe). The step putt seems a little silly to me (especially just outside of C1), since you can just regular putt and have better results.

By you wanting to keep the basket the same, you have already accepted that the pros play on different baskets.

There is a certain strike zone where just about 99% of putts will catch on every basket. With the lack of uniformity in the baskets the pros use, any putt outside that strike zone have a different chance of catching. You have already accepted this.

Where your creativity and thoughts end, mine continues. What im suggesting is already happening on a small less noticable way.

So its a matter of practicality..i get it, hauling around a small set of baskets to every pro tour event can be expensive and time consuming....

Well, covid has just shot a huge amount of money into disc golf. Jeff spring (or whatever his name is) travels to all these tournies anyway. Your saying he cant pull behind a small trailer or hire someone to pull a small trailer of pro level thin baskets to his events?

That the idea of that cant happen?

If disc golf continues to grow at the rate it is, the money will allow for all types of unpractical changes.

This idea to take away jump putts is terrible. You are taking away the only entertaining part of putting.

Just walk down this thought process with me. Its a fun walk, just hold my hand and we can make this game better....together (heart emoji)

I can't say that I derive a lot of enjoyment out of watching jump putts. Watching Calvin or Eagle effortlessly spin one in from 60 is a lot more aesthetically pleasing to me.

Jump putting looks stupid and unprofessional. Step putting can be done completely behind the mini.

As unprofessional looking as those 3-point jump shots in basketball?

I'm pretty sure the 3 point in basketball requires the shooter to land behind the line after the shot.
So no, worse.

So no.
That actually isn't true.

Some of the buzzer beaters look like a Nikko jump putt where the player is almost to the basket when it goes in.

I was wrong about the 3 pointer, jump putts still need to go.
Of course it won't ever matter because of the "rule nazi" attitude in disc golf.
