From what I understand, Fiberbuilt is the “gold standard” for hitting mats. However, I don’t want the expense of a full Fiberbuilt mat for my Skytrak setup. What do you guys thinking this?

I have the individual mat piece of that setup, and it's fantastic (especially since I've had terrible tendinitis and can't hit off regular mats AT All). You would essentially be paying $100 for the black standing mat, which seems steep to me based on initial observations. Also, it seems a bit narrow, but maybe that's just the photos.

Honestly thanks for posting and a great deal. It secures the flight deck and is a fully modular set up. I think it’s well worth the cost. I will be ordering as you can always return to Costco but I will report back on it!

From the photos it makes it look like the grass teeing area is a few inches higher than the standing area??

According to Fiberbuilt, the base of the Flight Deck (turf piece) is only 1/8 inch higher. Not sure how high the ball sits up on the surface of the turf, however?

I figured that I’ll give it a try and return if it doesn’t work out. The one pain will be repositioning the Skytrak unit for sim golf. I’ll have to move the Skytrak or Fiberbuilt between each tee shot and “standard lie”.

I figured the $100 cost for the stance mat could be justified by the modular nature (it is 4 or 5 interlocking pieces), quality and if I actually use the alignment rod features (can’t stick rods into garage floor).

I thought the same thing. They are supposed to be flush.

Here is some good discussion we had on it at GSF. https://golfsimulato...s-on-sale/page2

I picked up a flight deck a few months ago and just bought this from Costco. Great price
