I have a garage setup that includes the flight deck. I’m not a Costco guy but I’ve heard they are about half price there than anywhere else. The mat is great in terms of forgiveness and I find it to

Since I live in SoCal, I’ll be back on the track the very moment we’re allowed, but- were looking at a month at best right now. i saw the thread about the indoor simulator that flyboy (not sure)

It’s interesting how there seems to be mainly 4 or 5 styles. Then all sorts of different brands selling a version of one, or perhaps a version of a few of them. 
land they all seem to hang around the same price bracket.

these ones seem to be what I call the camping tent style, with the flexible fiberglass stix that seem to be designed to absorb a little bit of the shock from the golf ball.

Youve got the big flat screens, the cages, the returns, and then of course the video projector flat impact screens for the nicer launcher/simulator units, which suddenly take a huge leap in price.

obviously the virus has forced millions of golfers into their “mancaves”, so I expect there to be a pretty big buying surge into this whole field.

if I lived in a northern area with endless months of uninhabitable weather, I would be a player in one of the dedicated simulator rooms like “flyboy” built. (Please correct me on who it was that built that killer system, thanks!)

but, since I live in SoCal, where you can play all year round, I’m going the very cheap route. But I do want a launch monitor that will see “spin”, as well as work indoors.

the more I look, the more the “Mevo” looks like the unit to get. I’m trying to get more info on the ES B1, which seems to have basically the same amount of data. The main difference between the $200-300 units, and the $500 dollar units is the ability to read “spin”, which is actually the most important piece of data for what I want.

then it goes expensive, starting with “sky track” for ~$2k, where it starts getting good enough for using a display/impact screen. And up to billions and billions of dollars.

For 100 bucks, I think it's a good deal. But the website doesn't give me good vibes, couldn't find anything about the company.

I think the main thing will be the strength of the net to withstand balls from the woods. I may just make a little 10x10 square out of metal conduit with “tees” on the botton to add feet, and then hang a painting tarp behind the net, for a little security to keep balls from piercing the net...

also wanna get a 15’ x 20’ section of indoor/ outdoor faux grass to set everything up on.

ive got a huge 1000 sq ft rv garage in my back yard that this is all going into- I just need to get my lazy butt in there and clean up to make soce for the driving range- thats todays plan

@Sluggo42 I built this last fall in my garage so I had somewhere to hit in the winter. The mat is a country club elite I got off line at rain or shine golf. The frame is a 10x10x8 PVC I bought at Lowe’s and put together myself. Also bought the green turf and carpet padding from Lowe’s just so the balls had somewhere to land softly and not go flying. From the netting, I just searched a golf netting company out of Florida and they sent it in two days. I think all together I spent about 500 putting it all together. Shortly after I put this all together, I bought a Skytrak simulator to go with it and I use my phone and Apple TV to screen mirror it up onto the TV in the second picture. All this saved me this past winter, kept me swinging all winter long!

I go to the local soccer field and take my own little hitting mat.  Don’t tear up the field and can move it around to different yardage.  Parks and Rec, said it ok to do this as our course is closed for the V19.

Got my flight deck today, and it’s killer. It’s got a fairly small hitting area, but that area is really nice to hit off of, and they claim it’s good for 300,000 hits. I gave it about 200 hits today and you can’t really tell. It’s like a high density of scrub brush bristles about 1.5” tall. If you hit it fat, it definitely slows it down, but good strikes are wonderful. Absolutely 0 hardness like thin mats on concrete. Totally stoked with it. Even tho they say it’s good for 300k hits, I still wanna buy another hitting area, ..just in case.. haha. Now you stand on a rubber section, and hit off grass, and I’ve been wearing some old Ecco soft spike shoes, and haven’t tried wearing any cleats, (plastic) , so not sure how that would be, but it is a fairly soft rubber/plastic base to stand on, which is fairly even with the grass. I’ll measure tomorrow even.

but my initial opinion is very favorable, especially for $199 from Costco.

Net Return Pro Series. Just got it, works great so far.

Real Feel Country Club mat. Love the mat!

I have the original Net Return Pro series that comes with the 8 foot mat. It's been AWESOME during this quarantine bs. Really dont think theres a better net out there.

I have the Ruckett and the NetReturn.  They are both great nets.  Overall, I prefer the NetReturn.  The pros of the Ruckett over the NetReturn are that it is bigger and more portable.  The pros of the NetReturn over the Rucket are that the ball comes back to you.  It doesn't get stuck in the net like in the Ruckett.  It's a pretty big benefit IMO.

Doesn't the net return cost about 4x as much as the rukket. $150 vs $550 is a substantial difference

I’d love to have a better mat since I hit on my patio/concrete, but I can’t pull $500 for the top mats. So expensive for synthetic grass.

Check out Rawhide golf.  I've seen a lot of guys really happy with the B grade mats from there.  It's a 5x5 for around $150.  I haven't tried it personally yet but another forum has a bunch of guys that were happy with it.

I agree- but I’ve got one of the $89 nets (basically due to others being sold out), and I’ve blown about 3 holes in it so far... cheap junk
