That's a bit steep for my pocketbook. Maybe it's a twice a year treat.

Aesthetically pleasing + difficult does not equal best. I know a lot of the pros seem to think that, but I definitely disagree. There's more to good design than making it aesthetically pleasing and a good challenge for the intended skill level. Those are great to have, but there is so much more to a course than that.

The Skins match is now up on YouTube. F9 below.

Semi-spoiler - the baskets are really bad, and swung at least one major skin.

Clearly they aren't big enough.

There's a review right there in the thumbnail!

"Best and most prestigious course in the sport."

Eagle Crossing skins made Eagle bank!

Course looks really great. I would never aspire to have the ability to hit some of those landing zones near OB.

I cant speak for newer iterations of the Gateway Titan baskets, but the older ones were super legit.

I think a few of the STL courses have them installed but all the courses on the IL side where Im at have the older versions. New ones I believe have three layers of chains, but maybe lighter weight chains? You typically dont hear people complaining about them around here.

Dave Mac only sells Titans where he does the course design himself. You cant call Gateway up and buy 18 new baskets for your course, which is why you dont see them at any of the large tournaments.
