    I had these in the DSG pro shop and had never had to restock them except around the holidays. I think they are pretty gimmicky and a real ball and provide the same feedback these can without promoting a chucky shot that I am susceptible to.

    I have one in my bag a buddy gave me. I use it all the time in my garage off the a mat to practice keeping my wedge traveling shallow through impact. I also started using a poker chip ball marker for the same thing when I misplace (hit behind something) the flat ball.

    I have a set of them. I used them around the house when I want to swing at something. I'm not sure they do exactly what they claim to do, but they are worth the $7 or $8 they cost just for messing around.
    In my C130S bag:
    G LS Tec 9.0*
    XR 16 3W & 5W
    XR OS 4 hybrid
    C300 Forged 5-PW
    CBX 50*, RTX-3 54*, 58*
    O-Works 7s Red
    B330RX, Duo Spin, Q-Star Tour
