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.

This is the real deal

I figured I'd try the Preferred hitting strip before trying the SIGPRO 3D or Softy as I can buy 2 Preferred strips for the price of a softy. I had the Gungho Holy Grail and I prefer the Preferred mat by a mile. The Gungho Holy Grail is basically hollow on the inside which is great if you have joint issues. The Preferred strip takes real tees and feels legit. We'll see how it holds up. The only gripe I have is that it is 1.5" shorter and 1" taller than the Gungho so I had to modify my platform a bit to make it work.

Good mat

Good force absorption, does leave a bit of residue on the clubs from the mat, but easy to wipe off and doesn't hurt the club. overall best artificial surface I've hit off of. Oould buy again.

Smooth Real Feel

Hitting irons off this mat is like slicing through hot Butter melting on grandma's biscuits. Fat shot do not hurt just feel like you took a divot our on the course. Regular tees work great and stay up at any length. Highly recommend this hitting mat for real feel. Durability I can't say yet only had it a few days. I use my sim everyday so it will get tested and will check back in. Can't go wrong here
