Fiberbuilt Golf Mats: Research & Development

Fiberbuilt takes pride in the fact that all of our products are heavily researched, and tested extensively in attempt to provide the best golfing products on the market.

Since 1995 Fiberbuilt has been the golf industry’s leading provider of premium artificial hitting surfaces. Fiberbuilt is the only true commercial grade hitting surface. Laboratory testing shows that Fiberbuilt long grass fibers can withstand up to 300,000 hits before showing any type of visible wear. That’s why over 5000 ranges around the world trust Fiberbuilt to provide the ultimate in real world performance and durability.

Fiberbuilt Hitting Surface Development

In the quest to provide the industry’s most realistic hitting surface Fiberbuilt enlisted the services of a Phantom high speed ballistic camera and filmed the moment of impact at 22,000 frames per second. (Conventional high speed videography is 960 FPS). This has allowed us to analyze the differences in the club turf interaction between real grass, Fiberbuilt grass and conventional turf mats.

In order to optimize the 5 key ball flight factors: club speed, ball speed, smash factor, spin rate, and launch angle your choice in artificial hitting surface must closely mimic real grass conditions and allow for appropriate club / turf interaction.

Compared to conventional turf mats the club turf interaction on Fiberbuilt Grass most closely resembles real grass.

The Fiberbuilt Performance

So just how well does Fiberbuilt Grass perform?

Using trackman technology with top level amateur and professional players we aggregated data across the 5 key ball flight factors: Club Speed, Ball Speed, Smash Factor, Launch Angle and Spin Rate. We compared Fiberbuilt hitting grass against a conventional length fairway and conventional turf mats.

On every single measure Fiberbuilt  clearly performed closer to fairway grass than a conventional turf mat.

Using a conventional turf mat will distort your results, for the most accurate lessons and fittings choose Fiberbuilt.

The Most Durable Product on the Market

Fiberbuilt is proud of the durability that we manufacture in all of our golf mats. We are the only true commercial grade hitting surface that performs like real fairway grass. Laboratory testing shows that Fiberbuilt long grass fibers can withstand up to 300,000 hits before showing any type of visible wear, where as conventional turf mats show extreme wear after 10,000 hits.

It is our extremely dependable Fiberbuilt grass that has over 5000 ranges around the world trusting Fiberbuilt to provide the ultimate in real world performance and durability.
