With 3 baskets, the chipping net gives a variety of aiming points for practice.

On a crisp, breezy South Dakota day, I decided to take my Rukket Target outside for some practice. The creative minds behind Rukket use the same type of stakes used by outdoor enthusiasts for tents to help keep the net in place. In South Dakota, where winds are prevelant, these stakes prove crucial in maintaining a stable target.

The net stands only a few feet off the ground, but provides a quality target while maintaining an easy size for storage. With 3 baskets and a net behind the featured baskets, nearly all chips that hit the net will find a home somewhere. No more chasing balls all over the yard (except for the occasional chunk and “s-word”, of course).

Built with a durable fiberglass and nylon construction, the Rukket net is a mix between lightweight, quality and performance, all at an affordable rate. With a nylon strap stretching down the backside, the angle of the net can be easily adjusted to give multiple levels of difficulty.

The reverse side of the chipping net is a range marker with interchangable yardage readings. This can help golfers hone in from 50, 100 or 150 yards. We all know the scoring yardages are 150 and in. Rukket’s design here helps hone in that aspect of your game. Start hitting your wedges closer to the hole!

Overall, Rukket’s short game tool is a great addition to any avid golfer’s short game arsenal. All reviews of the product on Rukket’s home page voice favorability for the product. Even at my home with the winter months coming, we have a corner set up with the net and the wedges are lined along the wall. We’ll be using the chipping net all winter.

And I suggest you do the same!
