We know what your thinking, Ropeit can't be real. But it is! Finally, real golf ball shots anywhere. You're welcome. We can appreciate your skepticism and are sure you have many questions. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. If you have any that aren't answered here, email us a Question@theRopeit.com
Is Ropeit a real golf ball?
Yes. It is a real two-piece Dixon Wind golf ball. It has a metal screw eye secured deep into the core. It feels real, because it is real. Try it for yourself. If you don't like the way Ropeit feels, you can return it within 30 days.
What kind of rope is it?
We combine high strength bungee with Nylon Military Parachute cord. The bungee works to absorb the shot power. The inelastic Nylon cord brings it safely to the ground.
Will Ropeit come back and hit me?
No. When used correctly Ropeit will fall to the ground comfortably to within a few steps of the golfer. The better you hit the closer it comes back. You can learn about the proper setup on the How-to page.
How do I anchor the Ropeit?
A 5lb or more Dumb bell works best. A knot around the weight securely and you are ready to go. Watch the following video to learn a simple Bowline knot.
Can I hit it with a driver?
No. Do not use a driver, hybrid or fairway wood with Ropeit. Always use Ropeit with mid-irons 5-8.
How many shots does Ropeit last?
The total number of shots you can take before the ball breaks down is unique to each user. It is safe to say that golfers with higher swing speeds will wear down the ball quicker than those with lesser. Longer clubs like the 5 iron will do greater damage than an 8 iron will. That being said, Ropeits generally last between 1000 to 3000 shots! Either way, when you do the math. it costs way less than the driving range. Generally the shell of the ball will wear down first causing it to crack. Thats when you know its time to get a new Ropeit.
Can I replace the ball myself?
We advise customers to purchase a new one when the product begins to wear down. Think of it as prepaying for range balls each season.
Is this a replacement for the driving range?
