  1. You must be the master of the side hill lie... I like that you can adjust the chipping net to different heights, and let it catch balls on their decent
  2. The nice thing is you can pretty much set it how you want. You can set it lower, and it lays flatter, just by attaching the straps at lower points. I like to have mine pretty high and take pitch shots from ten to fifteen paces away. what they don’t show you in the video is the shots that don’t land in the exact middle fall through and roll back to the front of the net. I purchased it this fall and really liked it. Unfortunately with snow on the ground it’s folded up in the garage waiting for spring.
  3. I tore my meniscus a few years ago - happened on the 7th tee box - I’ll never forget..... anyway, after trying several compression sleeves I have settled on this one for golf https://www.amazon.com/Snapmade-Knee-Brace-Compression-Sleeve/dp/B07JMBY7X9/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Snapmade&qid=1607789585&sr=8-1 It has some compression, but I got it for the protection against over rotating across my knee and all the torque I put on it. Those little plastic pieces on the side help keep my knee straight. For me, I wear this on my left, forward, knee. So while it’s exactly w
  4. It must be nice to have skills with tools! Looks smart. I was scrolling from the bottom up and at first I thought you inserted it into a practice putting matt - i wonder if something like a BirdieBall has enough depth and structure/rigidity to hold something like that.
  5. I always get 18, with two of the five status lights still on. I’ve never pushed for more than 18. But I just finished my second season and still going strong.
  6. Im looking at the pictures and have a real persnickety question... No drink holder? No place to keep a couple extra balls or tees? I know, I know, your bag is right there. But every push cart has those things. Am I missing them, cause I don’t see in the pictures. I took a Bagboy push cart and added the Alphard ewheels. So I’d really miss those items. Two things you can count on with using a remote - first, the battery in the remote will dies with zero warning just before you have to go up a hill (keep extras AAA batteries in the bag); and second, you will send it someplace you di
  7. I’d been struggling with that question... waivering between a Fiberbuilt and a TrueStrike. I do not have the overhead clearance in either my house or my garage to take full swing - so this is for my backyard and if I’m going to do this I also want to build a butting green around or adjacent to it. I finally settled on the True Strike system. Got a modular piece to set in the middle of a ProPutt modular putting green. There was a long wait and it just arrived this week. Coincidentally my Mevo+ also just arrived. The Sporina net has been patiently waiting for its partners... Hav
  8. Would love to play along. My daughters are tired of their old dad tagging them... @christopher.rants
  9. If you aren’t looking for a permanent solution (like the ProPutt with the flooring base etc to build a floor across your room) then you really should check out the BirdieBall. This was my official review here - and there are four other reviewers with lots of Picts and details to consider You don’t have to be concerned about the foam. At all. It’s very sturdy and bounces back. They have figured it out. And you do want a little extra width - 4 ft is nice. Happy hunting.
  10. Back at the hotel I checked to see how much “walking” or “sliding” the putting green did on the carpet. I first marked the back edge with a Velcro command strip stuck to the floor. After a bit I could see it was moving By the next day I could see it really moved... Everyone may not have this problem. I tend to rock back and forth a bit settling (shuffling) my feet (don’t know why, it’s just habit). That movement or pressure may be what causes the mat to inch backwards. Maybe it’s the type of carpet. Maybe my hotel floor is uneven and I’m putting uphill -
  11. Hmmm.... I had plenty of putts rejected because the hole was already full.... but never because of a flag stick. Which hole? The challenge hole? Completely understand the “walking” of the green. I’ve notice that in my hotel room. I don’t really notice it as it happens, as its subtle, but if you step away and come back, oh yeah, it moved. I think in part that is because despite its very large size it is very light weight and the “smooth” side is what is against/gliding on the carpet. Walking on it creates force in a direction, and it doesn’t have the weight to resist so it gives
  12. Nice fence! You are inspiring me to restrain mine before my net goes back up in the spring
  13. There are a two large shops - by the North gate (near club house and Hole #1) is the SuperStore sized shop; and the South Gate (near Hole 5 and closest to 16, 15, 13). For hats I’d say the selections between the two are the same. A dizzying amount of choices when it comes to colors and styles. Yes, there are fitted caps, but they’ll go earlier in the week. Don’t plan on finding them on Sunday... They are all hanging overhead on a wall with numbers and you ask on of the friendly locals for that corresponding number. They group the fitted hats together. If it doesn’t say fitted, don’t bothe
  14. Ahhhh, but the crucial question is which version plays better - the lemon or the lime???
  15. If I were King of BirdieBall for a day I would grant your first two wishes. 1. I think that helps with the install, and holding it all together (and the cups won't fall out when flipping the ramp over... 2. Three holes - or plugs - with the farthest being the middle hole. I think two plugs ought to do it. 3. Gotta make a profit, and thats just too expensive of a wish. Plus, if I make the farthest hole the middle, you don't need a stance mat to stand on anymore. If I grant your wish of the Prefab hole liners, I'm not sure I need the double depth Challenge Cup to hold the mat
  16. 100% ! As I said above, I'm hoping to get the hole reducers - but I went looking on their web site hoping to find hole "plugs".
  17. Well, that is three for three so far on fewer holes... Hmmm... Curious to see what the other testers think. I get the "easier to apply" on the bumpers. I always struggle with those. Prefab hole liners - what were you thinking about - a full length fully attached to the cup? I was poking around on their web site, and saw that they sell as accessories a "high backed" cup. Probably not what you were thinking - but sometimes I have trouble getting the hole liners between the cup and the turf - its always a challenge - I'd think using a high-backed cup would make that easier and
  18. Love love love the MyGroup option for viewing on line. Who needs the announcers. Great way to watch just my fantasy team
  19. Bought this net this summer and really, really like it. My neighbor comes out to stare at me over the hedge when she hears me hitting balls into it, she thinks I'm crazy. Anxious to see how you testers perfect the method of folding it up - please shoot video
  20. Sharp! Always good to know I’m not the only one on the course with CDO... (that’s OCD in the correct alphabetical order)
  21. Bag Boy Quad for me. Went the four wheel route because of side hills. Better than a brake (though the hand brake was just fine). But the number one issue for me was how small it would be when folded up. The guys at the store let me take three different carts out to my car to see how they would fit. Gotta love living in Iowa... What I thought was a frivolous purchase - a bag to store it in. Keep the wet grass clipping stuck to the wheels in the bag and the car truck clean, well, if not clean grass free...
  22. I have the same challenge w my Alphard eWheels, attached to my BagBoy Quad. Lots of wheelies... everything is a little op heavy. I too have thought about adding “ballast” but I’m not sure how I’d attach it. I do t want it in the bag, but have pondered attaching something to the front bar of the cart, or where the bottom of the bag rests against the bar. I’m just not sure how much I’d need. Other consideration - does the extra weight just sap the battery more? More difficult to go up hill? Hmmm, sounds like a project to get serious about and work on. I’ve tipped the cart a few too many time
  23. Back to the hotel! The BirdieBall has been sitting in its box since Thursday. Here's a quick look at unpacking and setting up... Obviously takes a bit longer than 38 seconds... but not by much. Kept stored in the box were the mat and the ramp (getting them both in takes longer...) all the cups, flags, bumpers, hole sleeves, putter, a box of balls, a six iron and orange whip (other practice tools for the road warrior) and my Pelz putting tutor. Keep the box! Probably should have video'd the insertion of the hole sleeves from another angle - sorry about that. Bu
