Hack Attack Vs Spinball Wizard 3 Pitching Machine

Spinball Wizard 3 vs Hack Attack Pitching Machine 

We get customers asking us these questions all the time, "What's the difference between the Hack Attack and the Jr. Hack Attack," and "which pitching machine is better, the Spinball or the Hack Attack?"

Much like the Hack Attack And Jr. Hack Attack pitching machines, the Spinball Wizard 3 pitching machine is one of the best pitching machines out there. The Spinball also features 3 wheels with 3 separate motors spinning independently with control knobs for each wheel. The Spinball Wizard 3 wheel can throw fastballs, right and left handed curveballs, sliders, 2 and 4 seam fastballs and sinkers all at pitch speeds of 40-100 mph.

The Spinball Wizard 3 wheel machine is similar to the Hack 3 pitching machine in so many ways, so it is important to highlight key similarities and differences between the two machines to fully understand which machine is a better purchase for you.
