REVIEW

I have been looking at buying one of these for a long time. Since I have so many putters and I practice a lot on the greens I wanted a way to get more putts in during my time on the practice green. This was a huge help for me. It not only increases the amount of putts that you can do in your allotted time but it also helps with putting consistency. The one thing that will help any golfer is reading the line of the putts you are making, by using the RoboCup you can hit balls and keep on the same line that you are hitting on and practice till you get the right line. I would recommend that you use no more than 3 balls and I do wish the bottom of the device was weighted a little more. I have noticed that with fresh batteries, the RoboCup will toss the ball pretty far but after a lot of tosses, the device tends to shift a little. Overall this is a GREAT putting aid and I keep mine in my bag so that before a round I can get in as many putts as possible to get use to the green speeds for the round.
