If you actually used the Boomerang for a relevent period and could master it at any level whatsoever and on any surface, then sure, its not something you will ever need. You would have to be an excellent putter with no imperfections in your setup and stroke.
Unfortunately though there are actually a large amount of golfers who struggle with their putting and struggle to find anything suitable to assist - that is also practical to use where ever you want.
Whatever your situation/experience was, or if this was an honest and fair comment, or someone promoting a product by dissing another, whichever it may be, you are in fact completely wrong and I felt this should be pointed out in all fairness.
The Boomerang is THE best putting aid you will ever use for many reasons, most of which are expertly explained previously by other people on this site and others, with educated opinions, based upon actual time invested in using the Boomerang and what they learned.
They have really used it and may even initially doubted what its purpose was, but have since discovered through using it, that it can assist you in many ways to diagnose faults in setup, stroke and distance control. No matter what level of golf you play you find out something about your stroke you didnt know.
It especially helps with muscle memory, which in turn as I am sure you must know, assists with stroke confidence because you KNOW that your setup is always solid and your distance control will get you to your target, usually with 1-3ft, in my humble experience
Sure you may not get help reading a green but surely that bit is down to you? Its an impossible variable for any aid to simulate. However if you know your stroke isn't going to fail you then you know you just got to read it right and there is never a need to 3 putt again if you can do that!
Anyway don't be so quick to dismiss something you clearly dont understand. I have known about the boomerang for years and read all the reviews from many golfers who didnt believe it was really worth consideration. 99% of these people eventually had the penny drop. They would never get rid of their Boomerang thereafter.
Use it every week for six months and I bet you any money you like your putting will improve no matter how excellent you think it already is

It is very fun, very simple, and very addicting.
I like the fast green speeds it simulates
Helps with alignment and getting used to seeing the line
The mat came folded and the creases still have never really gone fully away (I've ironed it with a wet towel twice)
The mat wasn't cut straight and, when laid flat, has a slight curve to it.
Not the products fault, but I accidentally placed my boomerang near a heater and the white sticker inside the cup got a little bubbly and uneven. Not sure if it affected the performance but I wish I hadn't done it.
Could use some sort of simple lock system to keep the leg in place if you pick up the boomerang.
I love this training aid and it works better than any other training aid that I've ever owned or used. It's very fun and addicting and, if used similarly to how you'll face putts on the course, it can help you see dramatic results in your putting, particularly your distance control. I think I'm going ot get a new mat one of these days and possible replace my boomerang as well. I love it.

imo at home practice time is better spent on alignment, stroke, and hitting the sweet spot.
i sure am glad i did not invest much in this gizmo.

Just wanted to let you know how I have been going of late with my putting. The other month I was able to take out the club championships in my grade. Going into the last round at the half way mark, I was tied for the lead, and the next guy in contention was about 8 shots behind us. Needless to say, it was a two horse race with nine to play. Throughout the final nine holes, my putting was my rock, and I holed some really clutch putts. I wasn't really striking the ball that well, and on a few holes, I was less then happy with some of my approaches. Needless to say, those knee trembling 20-30 foot putts were like taking candy from a baby. Putting them consistently close to the hole and even holing a few 20 footers ended up making all the difference. The other guy that was in contention, at the 17th tee, said to me, "I can't keep up, your too good on the greens". Immediately I thought of you and your product, and the difference it has made to my game.
Aside from the club championships, there is one more acheivement I am even more proud of. Last weekend on saturday, I blitzed the field of 110, to win the competition by 5 shots! I had my best score ever and finished with a net 58!!! Admittedly, I have worked hard at my game, both at the range and using the boomerang. I am so excited about my game at the moment, and for the most part, I have you to thank.
I see that you also now have a Prestwick mat, that is a lot slower than the others you sell. I am very interested, as the greens where I play aren't as quick as your other mat's, so it looks like I will be looking to put an order in for one soon.
Thanks again Alex!
