New Baskets or pins on front 9?
« on: October 31, 2015, 04:24:51 PM »
So today I went out and threw some at MWSU, and noticed on the front nine that there were new pin placements being set down, right next to the old ones. The new ones have larger diameter openings than the old and skinny baskets. Are MWSU putting in new baskets to replace the crummy ones on the front nine, or just making better supports for the existing baskets?

Here's an example of what I'm talking about. Here's the old basket with its skinny post:

The new pin placement:

And a shot of what's being done at each of the baskets on the front nine:

It's new baskets! The antiquated single-chain wobbly disc-spitters on the front nine have been replaced with these:

Huge improvement from the old ones to Mach IIIs.  Did they place them more or less in the same positions?

I don't know. Aside from living across the street from the university, I don't have any interaction with it or the administration.

Edit: They're in roughly the same places. Every hole is +/- five feet from where it was before.
