Preferred Hitting Strip

Ideal for golfers looking to replace the hitting strips in their SIGPRO Mats or DIYers that need an insert for their subfloor - the Preferred, SIGPRO Softy, and SIGPRO 3D, are all designed with their own unique qualities and differences that result in better performance, durability and feel.

It responds like real turf even on mishits, providing realistic feedback even with a fat or chunky shot.

The accuracy of the Preferred Hitting Strip enhances the simulator golf experience as if you were hitting from the fairway.

Our proprietary blend of Teeline turf provides enough give when hitting down and through the ball, yet prevents your club from "grabbing" and causing joint pain.

Features & Benefits

The Original Insert

The Preferred hitting strip is the original hitting strip that was used before we introduced our SIGPRO Softy Hitting Strip.

Use a Real Tee

Golfer can use a real tee and adjust tee height to his/her preference


Reacts like real grass. Great shots launch with precision, while mishits, fat or chunky shots are accurately penalized, but not as much as some other mats on the market.


Firm Surface 

A firmer and more compact surface compared to other mats on the market that exhibit a spongy feel and grab the club.

So far so good. At approx 12000 hits on the sig pro softy it started getting extra sore and a little grabbed on fat shots. This one's definitely not as plush but still feels very nice. Great service too!

Hitting Outside the Strip

The rectangular strips all have stiff densely populated “grass fibers” regardless of the base elastic underpinning. The coarseness inhibits club speed at impact and torques the club face, especially with long irons. Plastic grass is not real. However, inside the rectangle strip is fine for 8i-LW, while I get best strikes outside the box for FW-Hybrid-7i.

Hitting Mat

This was a replacement hitting strip. We get a ton of use and wore one out. Reasonably priced, I ordered 2 just to have a spare.

Not as good as the Sig Softy

I bought the Sig Softy and it has worn out. To save a few bucks I bought this one. It's good for what it is, but the Softy is way more realistic.

Excellent as always.

Just as expected.
