How about you train a real golden retriever to smell out the discs underwater? That sounds flawless.

Eric, I think the most impressive design aspect of your "rake" is the placement of the eye bolts and rope attachment points. Do you find that lip of bolt helps, or do you think it makes a difference. Plus, I like the fact that yours is more portable.

BTW - I not surprised that someone who has the LINKS as their home course came up with this invention. When there is a need....

I think the head/lip of the bolts helps a lot actually. It gives the bolt the ability to get a better "grip" on the disc when pulling it back to shore.

Rope Clamps. They're simple pieces of metal with a small spike that digs into the nylon rope and you hammer them closed to secure the connection.

I am guessing you looked at Winnebago County Park hole #5. If you find a Champion Valkyrie (yellow) could you let me know?
