^^^ Full sized baskets are the best for practice. The putts that are slightly off will end up in the bottom of the basket and not past the basket on the ground. You can still aim small. It's easy to tell when you aren't hitting dead center, unless you have horrendous vision, and you won't spend as much energy and time picking up discs off the ground.

The only thing bullseye style baskets do, is decrease the amount of practice putts/increase the time of a practice session.

The cone basket is full sized to a Chain basket, just harder to make putts on. It would help me so I know on a Full sized basket where to putt for easy most forgiving putts.

Has anybody seen these on a course yet? Or maybe a practice spot?

An additional thought about the angled top - With this design, hyzers coming in from deep won't get completely brutalized by the top band. I've had plenty of base plastic discs chunked up by that sharp edge after what would have been a very nice shot.

Agreed about the full size baskets. I know whether a putt is good or not. Where it comes to rest in practice is the least of my concerns compared to hitting the heart of the chains. And I don't break my back picking a bunch of putters off the ground scattered around the basket.

Also easy on some of the Full sized precision baskets to make putts that would never make it on a standard basket as the top band is much smaller so some float putts would not work on a regular basket.

The Exception being the full build baskets made smaller like the Innova Skill Shot and countless knock off lower end baskets. Even DGA had a basket like this but they stopped production of that basket for the Mach Shift.

I agree, most brands models of basket with the top band can cut up the disc, as the bands they are not smoothed out in the top and bottom of band just cut flat without any jagged edges. You also have the other style that the Mach III, Innova Discatcher Sport 18/24 chains, and the Lighting DB-5 have with the top and the chains where a disc can still take more damage then the Mach V, Mach X style.

so, to add something about how the actual chains catch:

they are better than any standard config basket I've putted on. Only MachX is better for center chain putts. Mach7 probably better for just off center putts.

Honestly only bad putters complain about the band or getting ramped off the top of a basket.
