Based upon your user name, maybe the chains aren't the problem.

Here's a first look at it

3 sets of chains. Interesting. Hopefully it's not just an attempt at being different and hopefully these do catch well.

Looks like they went Titan-style with the chain layout. Should catch pretty well. I can't say that I remember hearing any complaints about the Titan's catching ability.

Only complaint about the titan would be how heavy the chains are but thats not an issue for most pros.

Also kinda looks like a modern version of the Cabin Creek baskets...

Looks like a good basket to !e, not sure how the three rows is going to help/hurt but if the pdga approves it in assuming as I do with all baskets that are approved of you putt well the basket will catch it, adjust your putting to the small quirks of the basket you're playing on

Perhaps the cost of these baskets could be recovered by renting the chains out to prison work parties.

Looks kinda cool to me. The chains getting shorter as they get closer to the pole would make them lighter/more receptive as well. I'd own one. Seems like this design could actually use LESS outside chains if my above theory was true. Adding to the list of targets to buy.
