    So I put the net up according to all the suggestions. My Setup was angle iron at 7.5" from the back wall (I had to push the envelope lol). I hung 2" memory foam from the top bar in back, then put sports netting stretched taught with bungees at first then with zip ties later (on sides and top); and finally my impact screen in front (carl's premium) tensioned moderately with bungees on sides & top.

    Awesome!!! Can you say "no bounce back!"? Tested up to ball speed 140mph... drops dead. That's me swinging out of my shoes, btw... faster hitters would prob be ok too

      OH! How should I hang the mattress topper memory foam?. mthunt vrpunk & anyone else who used a mattress topper... how did you keep it up? I'm about to try a duvet cover because my original try failed... thoughts?

      I hung the memory foam using tarp clips spaced about 10" apart, and after about 5 days the foam topper ripped out of the clips and fell to the floor. I tried hitting without it just for kicks, and the bounceback was still reasonable, but probably 6"-24". Louder, too. I'll definitely be sticking to mem foam.

      Anyway, the second time re-hanging I made a wild criss cross web cage out of duct tape and reattached to the tarp clips. Duct tape, 1001 uses, now a thousand and two. The problem? Duct tape doesn't like memory foam. It's slowly peeling away. I figure I've got another week before I'm picking the mem foam off the floor again.

      SHE'S GOT HUGE.... TRACKS OF LAND!! (sorry... flashback to a monty python skit about building a castle on marshland... over and over and over lol... but I digress...)

      so... back to the duvet cover idea... or other?

              I ended up with this and very happy on my 3 sims (no noise, no bounce, very cheap.

              Note : the "order" on the picture is not the good one, it is 1) impact screen 2) Net 3) Braid

                    I (the wife) sewed web strapping on the duvet cover and hung it that way.

                    Good luck

                    gnomike I have a blanket and sleep bag behind mine. I'm still using the Carl's standard screen and the noise is very little. The bounce is minimal.

                    Tried the moving blankets, but I blasted holes into them.

                    I've thought of having the wife behind it. Might increase my ball and club head speed. JK :-)
