So I am thinking about getting one of these to try and make a little
practice dome in my back yard so I can use reballs to cut down on
cost and have a convenient place to do a little practice.

Along with the wall panel kit that is listed.

I figure you can buy 2 of them have have a 10X40 practice area for under $400 bucks..
or maybe put them side by side for a 20X40.. might need some extra tarps to reinforce
the walls.

Of course there is always the snapcage for $400 bucks.. but 8X24 seems a bit small.

it would probably be $70 cheaper to make one yourself out of PVC.

Actually I went down that road first.. (and its still not off the table) but my friends
I practice with are swaying me toward this. Mostly because buying the moto shade
would be easier/faster.

Yeah.. I thought about that.. just a PVC frame and 10' high walls. But I wasn't sure
if the reballs that hit the bunkers might still bounce over the wall?

Haven't bought any yet.. was thinking of getting those cheap R2 bunkers? Are there

cardboard boxes are good, and you can probably get those for free.

If they're reballs, them bouncing over the walls won't do any harm. Now if it was paint, you might get a couple splats here and there. But bunker bounces really don't have much force behind them.

You shouldn't have reballs flying 40 feet into the air. But just so you don't lose any you could always throw a tarp over. You might want to go a little bigger, then you could do a snap cage. and snap against a fellow player.
