Should I buy a standard, preferred or premium golf impact screen?

All our impact screens should withstand several thousands of strikes from even the best golfers and are made for use with real golf balls.

Our best value for home users is our Preferred golf screen which offers the best durability for just a few dollars more than our Standard option.  If you are a beginner or have a tight budget, you should consider our Standard golf screens.  However, our top-selling product with the highest customer satisfaction is our Premium.  Premium offers some noise reduction and helps to dampen the sound of each strike of the ball.

Additionally, all our golf impact screen materials are compatible for HD/4K projection, though your projector, of course, will need to be capable of projecting a native high-definition resolution. Standard impact screens have the most texture and are likely to provide the appearance of a lower resolution image. While Premium impact screens have very little texture, they can provide the sharpest possible picture for your high-definition images. *** The properties of Preferred's single layer construction are likely to show dimples from each ball strike. The dimples do not hurt the material, but it may be visible within your image.

Keep in mind, impact screens are "wearable" products, and depending on the individual use, may start showing wear, such as scuff marks and dimples, immediately after its first use. This is normal. **However, over the long haul this wear may affect the amount of visible texture seen on the screen and therefore HD/4K image quality. To make the best buying decision weigh your level of use, need for noise reduction and budget against your desire for image quality.

Commercial facilities are strongly encouraged to buy premium golf impact screens.
*Does your swing analyzer require noise?  If yes, consider a Preferred or Standard golf screen.

Do NOT use a golf ball with Sharpie marker on it and make sure your clubs and golf balls are clean to avoid getting dirt or grass stains on your screen. Newer golf balls without abrasions will also help to extend the life of you screen. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - do your best to set-up, use and store your screen in a safe, clean and dry environment.

Please make sure to take proper safety precautions. DO take every precaution; keep children, pets, and spectators out of swing range. DO take every precaution to protect ceilings, walls, windows, cars & neighboring homes. Carl's Place is not responsible for damage to property &/or personal injury.
