I will admit that I initially balked at spending $300 for a 3X5 golf mat but I looked at some mats that were $200 and they were like hitting off concrete. Your mat at $300 seemed like a good deal when I looked around and saw what was out there.
Just received my new mat a couple days ago. It is everything you said it would be! I can hit full wedge swings without feeling that painful wrist and elbow bang that a cheaper driving range mat gives you. I love the plush look and feel of my new mat!! I showed the new mat to my wife and her response was to lie down on it and tell me how soft and comfortable it was.
Perhaps there are additional uses for that mat… Thanks for a great product!
