Waste of time, Casey is a troll full of misinformation and a terrible memory of events. Don't feed him, put him on ignore and move on. Most everyone has given up hope on the Mods actually putting an end to his non stop trolling here.

Regarding baskets:. I'm aware there are differences (some significant, others not so much) among the various brands and types out there. Can't begin to count all the types I've played on, but more and more, I'm convinced of one thing.

The only time you should think about what makes basket Y better/worse than basket Z is when you're thinking about buying a basket.

When players start thinking about what type of baskets they're putting on, expect more putts to be missed.

My local course uses Mach III baskets and they really bothered me at first but I have just learned to adapt and not really think about it.

Yeah I do not get why people hate that particular basket, as long as you know how to putt into the basket it will work. Same for 99% of the baskets on the market or in courses. Even old original style Mach II can work if one knows how to putt into them.

The only baskets I have seen that do not work that I have used on courses are the old style Chainstar due to basket cage height being lower then even a modern Mach II as then even on soft putts sometimes a disc will bounce out of the disc cage. I know as I have had discs bounce out of the old style Chainstar with a light putt due to how low the disc cage is. Even on newer within last 5 years the old style Chainstar baskets were put in. Those old style Chainstar are also the style of permanent basket to first start having problems with the basket over competitors besides the Chains on some of the older Innova Discatcher Pro from 2000's having the full quick rust issue.

I recently had some memorable spit out/throughs at an out of town double course facility laden with Mach 3s. I used to throw on Mach 3s regularly as my last home course was outfitted with them. I can't say I miss that

Cheers Mach 3! Love or hate, Mach 3s were essential in the sport we love. I personally think Mach 3s have helped my putting for the better. End of an era.

Nothing like an old worn out Mach 3 with a downhill behind it to make you putt light and floaty.

Odd that the Mach II is still made as a basket even though it uses the lower cadge height, it is made exactly the same as the Mach V and up with being Galvanized steel.

Okay how long before the Mach III is made as a knock off by Chinese unknown company or company known for knockoff sports equipment?
