My setup is below. I told Meg I'd take down the sensor if anyone comes over that we want to impress (although this work is incredibly impressive)

I'd be more impressed if you left it up.

When Jocelyn complained about mine I said "at least it's not as ugly as Corey's" and then showed her those pics. I think it helped my case a little bit.

I like your wall mounts. I should have patented those!

Side note, can I take down the sensors and put them back up without issue? They'd be in the same position but maybe pointed a bit differently. Its not a big deal to take it down if I don't need to re-set everything back up again. The other option would be to put a notch in the mounts so it'd always to to the same spot.

Correct. Before yesterday I was removing them out of the wooden wall stands. When I put them back in the pre-drilled hole they would be in the same spot, but I wouldn't have the sensors pointed at exactly the same angle - that's fine. You can adjust the angle during gameplay and it doesnt break anything.

What's the likelyhood of selling those?

I don't have a real good setup just yet. I'll probably get some extensions for the sensors and headset then put it up more permanently.

It's a guy who's 6'5" looking for a decent beginner set. They don't make extended clubs unless you custom order. Here taking a lesson with me Friday so at least decent odds.

I had to move my sensors around last night after I noticing weird tracking issues for the past couple of weeks. I think my sensors were too far apart or something, because after moving my back corner sensor to the closer corner it fixed everything.

I still need to decide if I want to get a 3rd sensor or not. I only would if I was able to rig it up so that the front 2 were always plugged in and connected. There isn't a good way for me to do that with the 3rd sensor always connected without getting a 50 foot extension cable

I want to get some cheap cable channels and paint them the same color as the wall. That would help clean everything up, but those channels cost more than they should. Corey, find me some cheap ones. We would have issues though where the USB cables plug into each other, that isn't fitting in a channel.

I was messing around in Rec Room last night and smacked my hand on the ceiling when I tried to shoot a basketball.

Moved my playing space over by my computer.
Pros:
-sensors are always plugged in. It was a small hassle to plug in the far one and have that cable run across the floor.
-someone can watch TV in the living room while someone is playing
-not as much as an eyesore?
-one of the sensors doesn't need an extension cable at all
Cons:
-slightly smaller space
-don't have opposite corner sensors right now, but I think I'm buying a 3rd anyways.
-I'm using a 16ft active USB cable when I really only need 6ft

Hard to see in the pic, but I painted my wooden mounts the same color as the wall. The white part you see on the bracket is the tab you pull to remove the command strip.

Just bought. I'll have something like this....
The only trouble area would be if I was facing the couch and picking something off the ground with my left hand.

I didn't even ask for a PowerPoint though?
