This is specifically the net I had in mind. I assumed that you can just hit regular golf balls into it as that would be the best type of practice imo. I think that driving a ball through it would be a manufacturer defect, but I have zero experience with equipment like this. In one of the reviews it said that they made the net too taut and it came back at them with a vengeance!
Thanks rehmwa, that is what I think I would have to do just to be safe.
