Too hard, so then I got a launch pad, which is a dream to hit off of, and then I got the shot vision app for distances. So then I decided I wanted to see where all these shots are going, so I got an Optishot. Then I ordered a new hitting surface for the Optishot because the one that comes with it is fine, if you don’t mind hitting off concrete. So then I’m hitting into my $79 net and have blown thru it twice now. So I bought a 12x12’ patch of Home Depot cheapo fake grass, well cuz it’s green. So then I ordered a 10x10 archery netting cuz all the better hitting screens are sold out. The archery netting works ok to project on, it’s a little grainier they say. Then I ordered a set of corners for the 3/4 emt frame, and bougot a 10 pack it 10’-3/4” emt conduit pipes. I cut the back ones down to 9’, because 10’ is just really high. And then I cut 8” off the front 2, so the front is 4” taller than the back. Then I bought 3 tarps 8x12’ for the sides. I cut two of the 10’ lengths in half to make the bay 5’ deep.. the screen had grommets on just two sides, so I bought a grommet kit and made a bunch of holes to hang it with on top, and used the existing grommets for the sides good screens have a fold sewn in so when you hang it, it’s supported the whole length, vs. a bunch of holes like mine has. I used zip ties to tie everything together.. I put a half sheet of plywood with a few bricks under the back edge under the fake grass so the balls would roll back to me, and also put a few layers of cardboard on the plywood to soften the “bounce”. The tarps are to cut out direct light from hitting the screen and washing the projection out. I also ordered a projector and it’s supposed to be here next Tuesday. Also ordered an 8x8 impact pad that’ll go behind the screen, but it’s back ordered too. It will eliminate the “see-thru”, as well as any back light getting thru, and make a better picture, and I also think it will help keep the screen from getting a million dimples, because I hit the ball so darn hard hehe .. so here are a few pics with it to this point. I’ll post more pics after the projector is running. optishot is ok, but one just needs to understand it’s just a toy. It does however show you a few things that are cool, like club path and face angle. It’s quite inaccurate, but knowing that going in is fine. The game lets me get my swings in, and will provide a visual on top of it all that’s fun. but Ive already turned the stupid bird noises off, good grief, who decided that was a good thing? cant wait for the projector Next week.. cnosil, yungkory, JChurch and 10 others 13 Quote TSr2 on Tensi Blue S Speedzone 3-wood on Tensi blue S Epic Max 5 and 7 woods on HZRDUS Reg flex Paradym 9 wood on HZRDUS reg flex P770 / P790 combo set on Ventus R-6 shafts 6-AW T22 Denim Copper 54°, 58° on Kinetic X Trajectory ER3 or, E.A.S. #4 (“Fang” or “Adele”) ProV1x, or, Maxfli Tour .Org 14 cart bag Adidas Tour 360 , or Sketcher shoes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
