imho really? really?
All baskets have pros & cons.
You are playing the same basket as everybody else in your group at any given time, at any given course. It is what it is.
I saw Tank have a minor meltdown during the Wide Open, cussing the basket and yelling something to the effect " these baskets need to be in a museum" the other PRO players looked a little bewildered at his reaction as they did and did not make their putts too. Adjust accordingly, although in my case just cuss accordingly. Although praying is not uncalled for. Sorry Tank, just sayin'.
As far as cost, mostly the cities buy these. I would assume there is a RFQ (Request for quotation)
which denotes a general spec on the baskets, so as to not leave any viable vendor out.
It is up to the mfg to submit a reasonable price and qualify for acceptance.
Generally, they don't have to take low bid, if the budget and logistics are right. But Generally, they do take low bid. The good thing is that there are multiple manufactures. Praise the Lord.
I don't know much but I know this:
It is the Indian, not the arrow. And it definitely ain't the basket.
Sorry, 2 cents
