i was on the verge of buying it. i did quite a lot of research online and this seems to be the best in terms of design and quality.

i contacted the company directly via their website and they gave me a quote (including shipping) to singapore.

however, in the end i decided against it because of the fact that this will become a permanent fixture as it's too cumbersome to take up and down. so unless u are prepared to sacrifice an entire area for this net, you may want to consider other options.

i ended up getting my curtain guy to install a long L-shape curtain track along my ceiling and I bought a heavy duty golf impact net from the US and hung it up. The good thing about this is I can just draw the net to one side when it's not in use, so i have no wasted space. I've been hitting real balls into this "curtain-net" for the past one month and it works perfectly fine.

feel free to pm me if u want some ideas / pictures

i agree. did quite a bit of research online for nets too. that seems to be the best one out there. but the curtain idea sounds awesome!!!!

Bro ScottyCollector - if you set-up, can I play Smile

I'm always concerned with these types of indoor set-ups. They look great but a bad mishit may be problematic. Also, you'll need to watch your swing plane to see if you're going to hit stuff around the house. Far too risk, IMHO, unless you're living in a mansion.

Personally, I'd drive to the range and whack balls there. It makes more sense to do so.

i think if the curtain is can go around like the ones for hospital beds then i think mis hits wont be a problem. i think dont need a big space for this too. just half a study room space is enough i think.

but of coz range wld be better coz can see ball flight and dist. 

this is awesome if one is lazy to drive to the range or if there is this midnight hitting itch and all the ranges are closed. haha

i only paid about $200 for the net + curtain track.

depending on the configuration of the netreturn net (eg with or without side barriers), this is about $700 to $800 cheaper than getting the netreturn

if don't stand too far back and don't try pull bunker shots, i think hdb ceiling should be ok leh. I'm seriously thinking about doing it. im living with my parents still and we have a spare room full of clothes. if i can convince them to clear the room, i'll do it man.
