aren't mach 5's and chainstars basically the same basket? if not whats the difference?
I'm no expert but it looks like the chainstar and the DGA baskets are made from alot of the same components. One difference I do see is the chainstar chains all fall to one ring at the bottom. the DGA baskets have separate rings for inner and outer chains.

I thought that DGA and Discraft where kind of one in the same. Like Chevy and GMC.
actually saw one on this site, and it looks awesome! search groups for basket owners and scroll down until you see a red and white basket. looks really sweet love the color combo, wish mine was different colors now!

not the same ownership....they do work for each other....

discraft makes all the DGA discs and DGA makes the chainstar baskets for discraft....

IMO a good basket shouldn't catch all putts....if a basket catches all wide or off putts it makes the game easier than it should be IMO. (this philosophy doesn't help my scoring!) Errant putts shouldn't be rewarded.... this I why I like Mach III basket the best......catches most "good" putts....spits out wide or high putts more frequently than others....just my personal thoughts....I know there are those out there that would like a basket to catch any putt that hits some part of the chains.

also think that the powder coated Mach IIIs are the sweetest looking baskets around......anyone who has played Indy Lake in Michigan knows how pretty those look in a beautiful setting...
Yeah but don't you hate when you have "the perfect putt" and it bounces off the pole! DOH!

Nibs, the simple answer is yes....I do get frustrated when a "good" putt bounces out during a round.....However, if I really look at the putt that clangs out it usually is because it wasn't central, or coming in too hot, too much spin, etc.....

I am not in favor of "black hole" baskets that catch everything that is thrown in their general direction.....this is why I like Mach III so much.....they rarely catch the errant putt....but usually reward a "good" cnetral putt.

I know for a fact that chainstars catch a lot more "poor" putts out wide of the pole...

this is just my opinion...I
