Interesting. Not sure that I'd really need one, but damn, they did a pretty polished job with their website and all for such a super niche product.

Turns out their little company is based down the street from me. Maybe I'll see those dudes around at the local courses.

Except when it breaks and they have to glue it back together.

Quite the sales pitch. Others suggest it works--in what sense? That it will help you improve your game? Or that it can prop up a golf ball without falling over?

My experience with carpet driving ranges is when I want to hit driver, there is a rubber tube sticking up. If the rubber tube is too high or low, too bad for me. I think this product is designed to allow one to stick a tee into it rather than use the tube sticking out of the carpet. Others have indicated that the gadget does in fact cling to the rug and does hold a tee upright. Will it turn everyone into Jason Day? Doubtful.

Just trying to be helpful. I rarely hit balls off carpets.

To be fair the lanyard feature makes this into a pretty neat device. Tired of carrying around bulky alignment sticks? Well not anymore!

It would take a while to explain, but I actually prefer mats to grass on most ranges. But I almost never practice driver because I can't get the tee the right height - I have to go to the grass range for driver practice. I certainly would buy this if I saw it in a store.

I avoid mat practice ranges like the plague (i pick divots with almost every club), but i do see these having some value if that's the only option you have.
