    Greetings one and all,<br />
    <br />
    To answer your question, the Boomerang works with whatever stroke you care to put on the ball. If you use an arcing stroke it generates more tops spin and drives the ball at the hole and if you use SBST it's like putting with a slice which gives you a bit more control - try it for yourself. <br />
    <br />
    That's the beauty of the Boomerang - you can try whatever hair-brained ideas come into your head and if you find standing on one leg more effective than anything else - go for it! You'll notice Brian arcs his stroke and he's the record holder so who am I to argue...<br />
    <br />
    Try playing your mates on the Boom for some cash and see which stroke holds up best under some real pressure (videos to youtube please but try to keep the swearing to a minimum <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':man_in_love:' />)<br />
    <br />
    Emjoy your putting!<br />
    <br />
    Cheers<br />

    Might you comment as to the situation with boomeranggolf.com providing the old package?<br />
    <br />
    I ordered from there as boomgolf.com was down.

    Well I may have to pull the trigger on this since I could use some help with my putting.

    Hi Matthew,<br />
    <br />
    BoomerangGolf.com bought all our old Tour Packs and have since sold them on to Garage Sale Golf.com. <br />
    <br />
    A lot of you guys have the old Tour Model (it's the one reviewed and pictured above) and know how good it is. And for the money they're asking I don't know how they have any left. We used to sell that same package for $50 + shipping! We did member's specials at $40 which is about a buck or two more than they're asking.<br />
    <br />
    The only negative with the Tour Pack was the folded Carnoustie mat but there are ways and means to get the creases out - just read our FAQ page for the best ones. However for $30 you're getting something that's thoroughly addictive, provides tip top feedback, is built like a brick xxxxhouse and will last you decades - providing you don't stand on it. <br />
    <br />
    Enjoy your putting and keep on Booming!<br />
    <br />
    Cheers<br />
    <br />

    What kind of surface(s) can this be used on? My basement floor is tiled, 12 inch tiles, and I was wondering if the boomerang would work ok on this surface. My understanding is the mat is fairly thin, so i don't know if the grout lines/tile edges will pose a possible problem.

    Hi Bortass,<br />
    <br />
    The new mat is a lot thicker than the old mat. It's been designed to take out some surface imperfections like tiles.<br />
    <br />
    Cheers<br />

    One can always do 8 feet or less with a 12 foot mat! But not more than 8 with the 8 foot mat.

    Does it come with a mat or not? The website lists things as mentioned in FJKs post. Just trying to figure out what I should be ordering.

    No the one from boomgolf.com (pro model) does not come with the mat you have to order that seperate. I just ordered mine and it cost me $107 and change for the boomerang and the mat:(

    Why does the tour one look better than the pro version?

    The tour model does look better with the pool table felt and is made with thicker plastic. It's also more forgiving and easier to get in and outs. Only problem is that over time the felt wears down and you can see the felt change colors where the balls hit the most. <br />
    <br />
    Pro model has a harder material and also uses a cup with a harder plastic. Its much harder to get an in and out with the newer model.

    The guidelines for the video should be on the website. You can also email Alex for any questions on the video, he will send you the $1000 if you beat the record.

    I'm working up on the Pro that I borrowed (I just bought the tour since it was cheap at the time) but I have 3 in a row haha I got a ways to go. but for the guidelines, it needs to be on level/stage 4 and you need to putt from 6 feet away from the lip of the ramp not the cup itself. correct me if i'm wrong

    Just purchased the Tour model from boomeranggolf.com and have not heard anything from them yet. It has been a couple of days now. Are they still in business or did I just send $48 to a closed account. Kinda worried now..

    <br />
    I thought it was a waste of time<br />

    I would much rather use a putting arc or something like that

    In my Humble Opinion. The Boomerage is a toy and will not fix your bad putting stroke. It wont make you read the speed of any greens and in my Humble Opinion is waste of money. I can make up a game like that in my home with anything. If you want to get a Putting Aid that Truly will give you a Better Putting stroke and can go to the course very easily in your Bag. It has to be without a doubt The IDL Stroke Putting Track by Momentus. Once again Momentus has come up with another unbelievable Product. The IDL Stands for Inside Down the Line. Butch Harmon endorsed and used by all of his students. You can take it to your practice green and make putts with it. It gives you the Perfect Stoke. I recently went to the PGA show and tried all of the putting aid this was by far the best.

    Why do you say this is a toy when it is obviously far more beneficial as an aid than a toy could possible be?<br />
    <br />
    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.<br />
    <br />
    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.<br />
    <br />
    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. <br />
    <br />
    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. <br />
    <br />
    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.<br />
    <br />
    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 <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> <br />
    <br />
    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!<br />
    <br />
    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. <br />
    <br />
    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 <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
