To achieve YOUR desired result, the only option is to eliminate the vertical component of the basket.

Prove me wrong.
I already did in this thread. Marksman leagues track data between a Veteran and Marksman basket. I provided the stats and the expected drop-off of made putts. So go back and read my posts and you will have your answer.

Guess I have to ask again.

Putting is too easy with a vertical catch element. Pros need to play with an empty basket to make DG scoring similar to BG scoring.

Your video you linked is evidence that smaller basket won’t be adequate to impact top pros putting. The empty basket is the answer.

Yes! Chainless Pit is the only logical way forward.
