This is a photo of the finished StrikeAbsorber 180 practice mat. I invented the StrikeAbsorber practice mat because, I injured my wrist from the resistance of hitting golf balls off a driving range mat, while trying to simulate taking divots. The StrikeAbsorber mat is designed to absorb the impact of a golf club strike when practicing golf shots requiring the taking of a divot. The white design on the top surface of the artificial turf surface of the mat is for first time use training purposes only and will disappear with extended use. The smaller oval area outline is where a golf ball tee can be used without damaging the internals of the mat (as seen below). The larger oval area outline is where the golf club can strike the mat for best effectiveness.
The mat is 12″x26″ and the height is 2 1/4″
GOLF MAT MAINTENANCE The Ultimate StrikeAbsorber Golf Mats diaphragm pressure can be increased or decreased using the valve stem port protruding from the side of the golf mat. A bicycle air pump hose can be attached to the valve stem and the pressure increased as if adjusting pressure in a bicycle tire (by pumping-up or bleeding the pressure). The diaphragm pressure was adjusted before shipping the finished product. Caution should be used to NOT over pressurize the diaphragm. Upon receiving the golf mat raise the artificial turf on either end of the mat base and feel the amount of stiffness (pressure) of the diaphragm. This will give you a reference for later pressure adjustments The pressure gauge on the pump will not give you a precise indication of the proper inflation of the diaphragm because the diaphragm’s envelope will over-stretch and break. The feel test is the best way to prevent over- pressurization of the diaphragm. The ideal pressure is to have a firm feeling diaphragm, but not rock hard. You should be able to easily flex downward the diaphragm with your finger as seen in following video.
