Hi everyone, I am looking to purchase a portable target and I have narrowed it down to these two choices. Can anyone give me any information on these baskets like portability, durability, and especially how well they catch discs? Thanks.
I dont' know anything about the Mach lite only because I've never used one. I will say as an owner of the skillshot that my putting has improved a hell of a lot. I think because the skill shot has a smaller shooting area than a normal basket so you really have to hit the dead center to keep the disc in the basket. Especially when you're shooting beyond 30 feet. The portability is really good as well. You can keep it in 2 parts and can be set up in less than a minute. The carrying case has a shoulder strap so it carries really easy too. Hope this little info helps out...
I'm in same boat. I got a barely used SkillShot for $50 on craigslist (thank you disc gods, thank you). I love mine, I've owned it about a year, most of that time it's be outside and held up well (usually I use a black garbage bag to cover it with a thick rubber band holding it on. Only because I had no where else to put it at the time (stored indoors nowadays).
Putting at the Mach Lite is way better than Skillshot....I hate the SKillshot....however...the Skillshot is more durable than the Mach Lite....the legs of the Mach Lite tend to fall apart after a year or two.
