I was practicing putting yesterday. By happenstance I had three apparently perfect putts spit out or bounce out in a row. So while picking up my putters out of the dirt I took a close look at the basket. This one happened to be a Mach III. I wondered if anything could be done to make it catch better. Especially if something could be done easily, quickly and at least semi-permanently.
Has anyone experimented with anything? I know at one time the single chain Discatchers were retrofitted with another set of chains. How well does this work and has anyone tried anything else?
I know that plastic tie-down straps exist. I don't know what they are called but they have ratcheted teeth that allow them to be tightened but not released. If these were used to connect the inner-most rings of the chain assembly the straps could create another layer to minimize bounce out and blow throughs. Has this been tried?
Has anyone tried a soft casing around the post?
It isn't my desire to make a basket that more effectively catches marginal putts. Rather, a basket that catches solid putts to the center of the chains.
