Which phone does 240 fps?

I use a Samsung Note 2. I think all the newer Samsung Galaxy phone can do 1/8 speed (30*8=240). You do drop quite a bit in resolution at 1/8 but for golf I've found it fine. I have started to use 1/4 (120fps) more often now as I don't find I'm really getting any benefit from 240fps over 120 as I'm really looking at my body movements, and I'm not as concerned about my club head.  

Here is an example at 120fps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18fhswgiPjw

and stowed and raised out of the way

 

 

Well this is clever.That you put it in your garage got me thinking. What are the dimensions?

Wow those Real Feel mats are expensive. A 4x4 is $349 on eBay. Is it worth it?

My girlfriend got me a real good mat for approximately $100 for Christmas. I think it's a Durapro mat.

I personally love my net. I have a Rukk net and it's great because it takes a minute to set up which works for me since the range takes more effort. I use my net, record my sessions, and send the videos to my Evolvr instructor which has helped me tremendously.

That's a good girlfriend. I'll check out the Rukk.

Why do you add a doormat?

So I'm not standing 2" below the ball.

I see. Because its 14" wide you have to stand off to the side. I purchased a tiny mat with some almost golf balls once and I couldn't deal with it. Even though it was technically big enough for my swing path it psyched me out like I was going to miss it or something. I think I need a nice 4'x 4' at least.

I hit into a net, and was looking for a good quality mat. Found these, at what seems like a reasonable price.  http://www.dwquailgolf.com/mats_nets_mirrors.html

Yup, that's the one I have.
