    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    Somewhat contrary to what the box says, we put our very old Encyclopedia Britannica books to use to straighten the mat out flat in about two days. My husband plays golf to a seven handicap and has had experience with other putting devices of this type and rated the quality of materials and construction of the Accelerator Pro as good. He thought that the white line markings down the center were very helpful in tracking putts. Most importantly, because golf is a repetitive motion sport, this mat is a real aid to developing a putting stroke that becomes automatic. The continuous gravity ball return works fine, an improvement over another trainer we have that requires electricity.

    All of the information, diagrams and instructions regarding the Accelerator Pro are written on the storage box; there is no pocket pamphlet included, which might be helpful. On the bottom of the box, it is indicated that this product comes with a 90-day limited warranty and is made in the United States. A website is provided, and after creating an account, it took about a minute to register the product.

    I made 48 putts during a recent round,which is poor performance, and decided to get a putting mat to help.

    This putting mat is of good quality compared to similar products (I’ve putted on a few). The mat itself is thicker than most mats of its type and the plastic return portion is a little thicker than most – although it’s still relatively thin. The ball rolls with a normal speed based on my experience with real putting greens. I used some books to help flatten the mat out initially, and I was putting in a few minutes.

    The distance guides work as intended. I need help with consistent putting distance. If the putter head moves these distances and the ball is short or long, then the tempo is off. The markings can also be used to pace the distance on the mat without making the ball in the hole, say if you want to practice getting the ball to roll 4 ft and no more.

    The ball return feed can be inconsistent. Sometimes a ball will not roll through and it sets in the cup. Typically the next ball will cause both to return. I’ve only had one instance of three balls getting stuck in the cup in a few hours of use. This is really a minor thing, and the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
