This is what i hear, and I would like to proof it.
so why are these things not approved?
I think...........there needs to be a slight modification first in regards to the basket itself. I did hear that this modification would make these baskets pretty close to the exact PDGA standards. For what that's worth.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Looks like the nubs are aligned with, and completely within, the top ring and are not as aggressive. I would expect more rim slip-outs, i.e., fewer nub grabs. I can't say how that would bear on getting a PDGA approval.
