As long as it's in the bars of the basket, it's in.
803.13 Holing Out

A. A player who fails to play any hole or fails to hole out on any hole during the round may be disqualified, at the discretion of the director, using the following guidelines:
(1) Holes missed due to late arrival may be scored and penalized according to section 804.02.
(2) Inadvertently failing to hole out (as determined by a majority of the group or an official) shall result in 2 penalty throws being added to the number of throws plus penalty throws already taken on the hole. The hole shall then be considered completed.
(3) Intentionally failing to hole out (emergency, injury, plane flight, etc.) constitutes withdrawal from competition. The player shall be withdrawn from competition and officially listed as "Did Not Finish" on the scorecard and in the event results.

B. Disc Entrapment Devices: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must come to rest supported by the chains or within one of the entrapment sections. This includes a disc wedged into or hanging from the lower entrapment section but excludes a disc resting on top of, or hanging outside of, the upper entrapment section. The disc must also remain within the chains or entrapment sections until removed.

C. Object Targets: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must strike
the marked target area on the object as specified by the director.

We just had a player hit a 245ish "wedgie" for 500 smackers.
what basket is that. looks to have 3 sets of chains and big ol' bars.
it is/does, i dont know what kind it is but they're at the local course in Brandon, Fl. it's the Limona course
gateway titan
Damn, that is one hell of a basket. Does it catch as well as it looks?
Yes, it counts...unless it pops out before you remove it.
Nope. Once it's at rest, the disc gets replaced there if it pops out. See rule 803.07B Interference.
Rugged, Hi-Performance Gateway Titan™ Baskets are the ONLY Way to Go If You Want Course Equipment to Last a Lifetime!

Anyone who gets a look at the Titan knows these baskets are superior to any comparable basket made. The Titan is made from heavy 1/2" cold rolled steel instead of the traditional 5/16". They are also deeper-dished, like Ozark baskets/spider 3 (13" deep). They are hot-dipped galvanized, not powder-coated. The chain configuration is also similar to the Ozark mountain baskets, with 2 sets of inside chains that alternate lengths. There are 3 sets of chains altogether with each hanging independently on their own rings. The rings are not made from cold rolled and are 3"x1/2"x 1/4" shaped similar to the Armstrong bracelets. The rings are tighter to the poll & heavier causing way less action when struck. To top it off the inside chains are heavier in weight but similar in gauge. The outside chains are the normal size and weight of the mach III's. The heavier inside chain consequently deadens the shots without causing deflection.

Physically this basket is superior in strength to other baskets, and we will put their disc-catching ability up against anything comparable ever made.
And yet a disc still wedged in the side of the basket...
Reminds me of one of my shots...

actually it catches really well and is harder for a disc to spin around in the chains and come out due to the 3 sets of chains
