Initially, i didnt think i would need the side net, but for a variety of reasons because of my setup i was not swinging like i would on grass or the course so i was topping the ball and shanking it. I have found as long as i am hitting well and hitting into the net i feel confident and swing well, but the moment i shank one and it bounces off the wall and into my neighbors yard, i lose confidence in the setup and then start unintentionally pulling back my swings which causes more shanks. having this net is just peace of mind and gives me confidence in the setup to stop any rouge shots. I set it up and played 9 holes with my simulator, didn't hit the side net once. but i was glad i had it.
Great product! Easy to connect
Bought a 5' side net to hopefully 'steer' my shanks back into the actual net (also a 5' size), and to reduce the dents and scuffs in the drywall. I'm in a condo space with just enough room - it's been a learning experience.
From what I can tell, it's been effective? Just a little bit of tension and the shank shots seem to not dent. Better than before at least. The net itself did not extend out as far as I would hope, and sits fairly low. I had to change up how the side netting attached to the main unit so it would cover the areas most shanked at.
It's working out for me, but not sure how much it would help if higher shank shots didn't have a wall to run into. I imagine most would simply fly over the side netting if it were flush/parallel with the ground.
I had purchased two other basic nets before and they worked but the Spornia net takes it to the next level!
Their net is compact easy to setup and take down you don’t need as much room behind the net and the wall. The best thing is the balls collect at the bottom so much easier than chasing them around the garage floor thanks Spornia
The 7ft net fully lives up to the rave reviews. It’s easy to set up and take down and seems to work extremely well with my Garmin Approach R10. I like the ball return and the impact sound is quieter than I anticipated; with a lower pitched “thud”. Well done Spornia!
