I love this thing! I can play 18 holes anytime I want, rain or shine. Couple of points; Putting not so great but once you get the hang of it, not so bad either. I would recommend using the long/short tee on every shot. While it's pretty sturdy in the base, metal, the housing is plastic and the first one I had shattered on a miss hit by one of my friends who did not use a tee. Lesson learned. Excellent feed back on swing speed, plane and face position at impact. really has helped me correct some minor issues. I bought a Rukket 10x7ft Haack Golf Net (great product!) and use it indoor. You can swing without a golfball, of course, but I like the feel of the ball on the club face. What can I say, I've played 18 ... full review
2) You should choose the SkyTrak Practice Package for the lowest cost SkyTrak package. You don’t get a projector or projector screen with this package but that saves you about $1,200! Hit into The Net Return net and display your shot data on an iPad, PC, or better yet, hook it up to a TV. This is a highly portable setup too allowing you to take apart your Net Return net within minutes making this an excellent outdoor golf simulator.
At this price point, you are most likely looking at an OptiShot simulator. It’s currently around $300, and this is the entry level. You can have plenty of fun with a product like this, but be aware that the accuracy is limited. Optishot only measures the speed, path, and face angle of your club. From there it calculates where your ball is going but is not directly measuring the actual golf ball after impact. So you might not make great contact, but OptiShot would simulate a shot that was struck almost perfectly. It is essential to understand that the info provided could be misleading on individual shots, which could frustrate players.
This entire process tends to make the practice session less authentic than it should be. With the ability of the turf on the Fairway Pro to move with the swing, no residual force is relayed to your joints. Instead, it serves as an accurate simulation of the give real grass has, and as a result, the feedback comes in the form of loss or gains in ball flight, as with real grass. This makes practicing on the Fairway Pro much more authentic than on other golf mats. In addition to that, the Fairway Pro also comes in a portable, foldable casing, has durable sprigs rated at one million cycles, and a replaceable premium quality turf.
I have the trainer for about 2 weeks now. I have been using it in my backyard a couple times a day. I am 60 years old in great shape but I've lost a lot of flexabilty; the Gold Flex really helps with this and has increased my range of motion on the back swing. I also live near a driving range and go there about 3 times a week. The first few times I went there after using Gold Flex I was a bit frustrated; I had some improvement, a little more distance and better follow through, but nothing major. Then yesterday at the range I took my driver, setup, relaxed and specifically tried to emulate that backswing I used with the Gold Flex. I connected, and holy smokes, the ball went sailing about 270 yards, and I was only hitting 230 yards when I conneced before. I teed ... full review
Depending on if you were able to find some good deals on the screen and projector you may have some budget left over to really turn your space into a golf simulator heaven.  For example, if you’ve built a wooden frame for the simulator you might want to cover the boards with a foam covering because shanks hit into the wood and can be unpredictable.
This simulator does not come with as many accessories as some of the previous entries. However, what it may lose in versatility, it gains in technical prowess. The 3D Swing Analyzer is essentially a sensor that you wear on your hand that can connect to any device via Bluetooth. It analyzes the quality of the swing by measuring parameters such as club speed, club plane, backswing length, tempo, etc. But the real magic begins once your swing has been recorded. The Zepp Golf 2 has instant feedback capabilities, providing you with instant swing analysis as soon as your swing is complete. This prompt feedback allows you to improve your technique with each swing, making your practice session much more fruitful than it would have been otherwise.

This device performs very well considering the price compared to multi-thousand dollar launch monitors. It's extremely easy to use and carry in my bag. I had a problem with it when it first arrived and called Voice Caddy. They were available on the phone, listened to my problem and asked me to send the unit to them. Within hours of them getting the unit, they identified the problem, phoned to tell me about it and shipped it back to me. Not every product is going to work 100% of the time out of the box, it's how the company responds that is important. Voice Caddy did a great job responding.
As with the original OptiShot, this product will not provide you with data on a Trackman level as it does not measure the ball, only the club. However, it does cover all the most important swing data that you can think of, such as club-head speed, shot-shape, swing-path reading, face impact angle, swing tempo, face area contact, and distance. With this information, you will be able to focus entirely on improving your swing.
