alternatives to impact tape

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I was watching school of golf today and he said use foot spray instead of impact tape. Has anyone ever done this? Is it easy to get off? Does it work well?

what about blue painters tape?  If you put it on the club loosely the impact will leave a pretty visable ball print on the tape.

I use green masking tape, but the ball imprint only shows on anything more than a half swing. So for chipping or short pitch shots, it doesn't leave a visible mark on there. But it still works for me.

I tried athlete's foot spray and tapes. I like using oil pastels. Cheaper, more portable, a little better in wet conditions. A little messy though.

I feel like athletes foot spray would be good because I wouldn't have to worry about it coming off easily. I would only do this on my driver because there is less turf interaction. It will last longer on a driver I would think.

I have a square foot section of a rubber mat flooring used at professional gyms. Using sidewalk chalk on the mat itself shows me exactly where the club bottoms out.

Do you put it on the ball or the club face?

 I use impact stickers from longshotgolf.  The good thing about them is that I can peel them off the club face after practice and onto a piece of paper to take home and refer to later, with notes I add to explain what I was trying at the time.  Like this:

 

 

You can get the impact stickers at:  http://www.longshotgolf.com/productdetailsheet.aspx?CategoryID=5&ProductID=3380

 

I got my first stickers at golfsmith in an introductory package.

I often use a colored (blue, red, green) sharpie and color my practice golf balls with a circle. The sharpie will transfer to your club. It is really easy to clean too so long as you use something like Dawn dish soap and a rag, or a towel (I use a micro-fiber towel). Probably not the "easiest" approach, but works well and there's no barrier between the club-face and ball by doing so.

Edit: I know of some old-timers at my local course who used to, and still do, use food coloring on their balls for the same effect. Easier clean up and similar to Easter egg painting lol.

Wow. That does work great! Is it as dramatic on the irons as well? Definitely gonna buy a can for the range. Thanks.

My Titleist 910D2 has a black face.  I don't even need impact tape because range balls leave a little mark on the face.  I just wipe the face before every shot.

They work fine but not environmentally friendly, smell, expensive, don't last a long time, harder to wipe off the club, etc... I tried the yellow stuff gave up on it after two cans.

Dry

Erase

Marker

or

Oil Pastel.

It does work very well on all clubs. I usually play my round with my driver coated if I am struggling so I can make adjustments on the fly.... wipes off easy with a damp towel and smells great!
