Plastic Practice Ball Use

Today I started using mine to practice on the carpet at home.
Primarily for chipping and checking impact and flight direction. That helps me adjust my grip/clubhead angle.

Their weight and material will obviously result in a different distance when hit in comparison to a regular golf ball. Therefore I would only use it for occasional practice at home.

I am incline to believe that fake balls are best for practicing swing mechanics. That one should not rely on the flight of these plastic/foam balls for swing results. Especially when used with longer swings. 

I have a box of Taylor Made foam balls I sometimes use. They are quite safe to use indoors. Outdoors  they work ok, as long as there is no wind. 

However, my favorite practice "fake" balls are those "Birdie Balls". The ones that look like a short piece of pvc pipe. (they are NOT made out of pvc). They seem to mimic ball flights better than the plastic/foam balls, while still being extremely range limited. I also believe these birdie balls are more suited for outdoor use. Obviously a draw back is you can't putt with them.
