Saw this the other day on a website and it looks pretty cool. Seeing as I don't have time to get to the range or course everyday it seems like this would be the next best thing, I don't have the biggest backyard, but currently the house next door doesn't have anybody living there so I could use their yard to. Was wondering if any sandtrapper's have used these or if there is any other restricted flight golf ball that is better. Thanks

What kind of feedback can you get? I'd rather get a hitting net.

Funny I won a package of them a few weeks back. The other day I was waiting for my playing partner to pick me up at my house. I was bored out front with my clubs out and decided to grab one and hit it. Says maximum of 40 yards. I grabbed an 8 iron and hit it off some wood chips. Flushed it and the BB carried about 50 yards over a fence at the end of my cul-da-sac. LOLOL Looked and sounded pretty cool as it spun off the face. Beyond the fence was wildlife area so no big deal.

I need to spend a little time with them. Not a bad idea though.

Not bad. Plus you could see what type of spin you placed on the ball. In this case it was an over the top draw.

I ordered their golf mats and net and they sent me a dozen of those ball/plastic things. They are ok to practice with. They say they will only go 40 yards but they go MUCH farther than that.

If anyone hasn't tried the birdieball, go get a dozen now. My wife hated to play golf until I got a dozen pack of the little napkin ring looking things. We hit them back and forth to each other. This practice gave her the confidence to get out on the course.

I've found two of these on my home course. I was always scared to hit them because I wasn't sure if they would damage my clubs or if you were even supposed to hit them.

Just received mine today. Someone let me try theirs at our course before tee off, they were pretty responsive! I ordered the hitting board with twelve birdieballs. They have a special now where you get 15% off plus an extra dozen birdieballs. So, I'm looking forward to trying them out . I will post after I've used them a bit.

You could always try those wiffle balls that are the same size as a golf ball. They only go around 20 yards and show what kind of spin you put on the ball. I'm pretty sure you can find them at walmart.

How do these compare to wiffleballs and foam balls? Just curious.

they feel a lot more like an actual golf ball, and because they have a little more weight, go a little further. they don't exaggerate a slice or hook as much as the wiffleballs do, but you can still identify mis-hits.

I'm gonna order this for my golf buddy for a belated Christmas gift.  He gave me a gift basket yesterday of assorted dog treats plus some coffee for me.  I have hit the BirdieBall off a fairway a couple of years ago and it does work great.  I see the set - including 2 dozen BirdieBalls and the StrikePad - is $40.

Just thought I would bump this thread up. I used these critters this morning.

I have had mine for well over 10 years, and none of them have cracked, or otherwise become useless.

I did check current prices, and they have gone up considerably since I purchased mine.
