I don't think you can compare the functionality of this unique item to a 19.95 stationary unit that is made of foam,rubber, and metal.
I came across the video clip from the golf channel and you guys can check it out here.

Ted is my teacher and a very good guy. It was funny, I was on the range at Merion and I heard a teaching pro going through many of the same teaching points that Ted uses. The next week, when I had a lesson with Ted, he mentioned his son was the teaching pro at Merion.
I am looking for an indoor mat for winter practice, so I will look into it. Sounds a bit $, though.

I like the feedback I get from my off hits. Still need to hit more, the turf is thick but the under cushion is thin. Not sure yet how that will hold up. It does look strong however. Mechanics are good..doesn't look cheap and plasticy.
I will check back in a few days with more reaction.
I bought mine from this website, they were giving free shipping and no taxes which kept the price barely..laugh..under 200$ at 199$
As I am at the range alot and practicing 2-3 hours a day I will give feedback...
Price seems ok..I was looking for a mat as I had gone through one mat already in one year. let us see how this holds up

Jim and his wife agreed to take a look at the unit since we live in Los Angeles. They held the product and tested it, Jim had mentioned that there needed to be some spring adjustments. He fixed it.
I will give an update if the problem was fixed. Its is conveinent to take to the range. Although I almost left it one time. OOOPPPs.,...

To be honest we have just returned last week the Fairway Pro. Like I said we had to take it to get adjusted. Although the owners were nice the conclusion I came to is that if you are a casual golfer I is a great system. Concept is great but the kinks still need to be worked out. Maybe it was just our unit but we are trying to go to the professional level and was looking for a mat we could hit hundreds of balls a day and it would stand up.
We found Fiberbuilt mat our next choice of mat they seem really sturdy and have individual plates of mat you can replace if you want. website is http://fiberbuilt.com/golf/index.htm
we talked to Chris in customer service the mats are 350 with shipping 108 but we asked if there were any factory defect mats for discount. We got a mat which has some cracks at the fold which we didn't mind since we wont be moving it. The hitting surfice is new.
we got it for 300 with shipping included. Great deal . we have had the mat for a week now and are extremely happy. better than any range mat. allows you to hit down and through the ball, heavy duty.

same turf used in places like golf tec and other video simulator golf mats.
100% satisfied would recommend this mat above all others.
If you still want the Fairway pro mat let me know, however I think it needs some more time to get it right or work the bugs out.

I bought a Fairway Pro and find it to be the closest thing to hitting off the fairway compared to any mat I have ever tried. I have hit off Fiberbuilt at my club and it's like hitting off air. Or like teeing up. I want to practice hitting down and through the ball and Fairway Pro lets me practice that. But I think everyone should have their own preference how they practice and play golf.
