    Garage set-up

    Hi, I am going to purchase a Optishot simulator for use in my garage during the winter months.... mainly for weekend fun with the guys..... I have an area - 9 foot high by 10' wide by 10' deep. I am looking for an inexpensive way to set up an impact screen. I need to be able to set it up and take it down every time I play so I can park the cars at night..... I was thinking of using an HD t.v. to start out but would like to purchase a impact screen that I could use possibly with a projector later on. I have read so much about the impact screens that I am confused. If I purchase an impact screen.... do I need to put anything behind it or in front of it to absorb the impact ?? Can I just hang the (white) impact screen and hit away ??? I plan on using real golf balls. Not looking for anything fancy....just something to hit into that will absorb the impact and serve the purpose....any ideas. Thanks.

    Check out westcoastnetting.com and no matter what screen you choose , if you back it up with netting or memory foam or a moving blanket it will last longer .

    Good luck
