I once attached some super strong fishing line (about 60 ft *) to a hole in a disc. Attached the other end to a spike in the ground. Allowed me to practice full power drives, over and over. Worked good enough before I installed a net.

* Mono allows some stretch. Braid always broke.

Sounds dangerous. I have seen a couple pretty serious injuries with ribbon catching/wrapping around a finger during a drive, in the winter. Fishing line would cause significantly more damage.

I heard (I think on Jomez) it was made specifically for that video by a metal fabricator
