Played Jones West today with the new Mach V. NOT IMPRESSED.
Now, it could be that the footings were a bit loose, and/or the sleeves were loose, and/or the baskets were leaning a bit, and/or the new chains are tight, but . . .
I layed in two putts, center of chains. In my opinion - perfect putts . . . not too hard to hit the pole and putter bounced out. Not too high, not too low, not left, not right . . .perfect puts. (one was about a 8 foot gimme).
I thought that baskets are supposed to catch good shots, not spit them out.
If the misses were my fault, I would take it. These misses were due to the basket.
I think the outside chain diameter is to close to the diameter of the basket and the chains are too tight.
Haven't really thought too much about baskets, other than the really crappy old home made versions, until this thread. And now, I am paying attention and will evidently change my game for these rejection baskets.
