The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I do actually have Issues with some types of plastic , Spinning off the chains because the disc is too slick. For Example , Candy Type of Plastic.
Gateway also makes a heavy duty 3 chained basket (and has been for nearly a decade). The Titan catches better than another basket, in my opinion...
Spit outs are just part of the game!!!!! We all have them!!! But as stated before, less than more!!!!! If you are consistently spitting out!!! Then some thing is wrong with the putting!!! Just make better putts!!!!
We have 3 courses in Clinton county NY the oldest (2010) has Innova DiscCatchers, the second course has DGA Mach II's and the third has Arroyo Vortex baskets.
While all three will spit out bad putts, I have yet to see an Arroyo basket spit out a great putt. The type of great putts I'm talking about are from 35 feet or more from the basket and hit the chains with the front edge of the disc. I regularly see this type of shot get spit out our go right through the chains of both the Innova and DGA baskets.
Nothing is more aggravating then seeing an Ace blow through chains or get spit-out because it hit the pole.
The Arroyo Vortex baskets are no more expensive then the Innova DiscCatchers, so I don’t buy your argument about the increased cost to clubs.
After playing on the Vortex baskets all summer I feel that if these baskets lower scores then the problem is course design not the baskets.
