The T2 is much more user friendly for softer putts than the T1. IMO the T2 catches like a hybrid of the T1 and a Discatcher. (...but the T3 is the best catching basket on the market and by far the best value on the market).

I have played on T1 (chains edge), T1v2 (BRP) and T2 (airborn preserve) and none of them want to catch middle and off to the side, especially right side for a right handed player. They are good targets though! Rarely feel like I was robbed of a good putt, just gotta hit the center!

Any new “pro” basket is gonna act this way. Pros putt hard and center and it seems like a race to make the best basket for that style of putt.

Excellent. I'll check out the T3.

Does the T3 really catch that well? I think my favorite 2 targets have to be the Discatcher 28 or the Mach 5, those two are the gold standard. So if a T2 catches like those it's in good company. Unlike most I don't mind the T1 at all, for all my rounds at Spilman I think they've only ever dropped one good putt.

T3 looks like it would kick a lot though.

Yesterday I played 2 rounds on a course with Prodigy T3 baskets. First time I had ever seen them. I had absolutely no problems and they caught just as well as the Discatchers I'm used to playing on.

Visually it took some time to get used to the chain assembly design and they appeared to be a little narrower than Discatchers at first. After a few holes I didn't even notice. I think the presence of fewer chains makes you perceive a smaller basket initially.

I had one putt that hit the front chains and tip up to the dreaded cut-through angle as it went through but then caught on the backside chains. The horizontal chains seem to work well at reducing those.
