This is a great machine. Consistent and will throw all over strike ...
This is a great machine. Consistent and will throw all over strike zone. Great so your kid doesn't get used to the right down the middle pitch. Great alternative to the way more expensive jugs.
Love it !
I have used this machine all summer for my travel team's practices. It works great and can even be used for flyballs. UPDATE JAN 2013: Still using this machine and it is working great. We use it at least once a week and the accuracy of this machine compared to our other machine (blue jugs) is much better and a lot more consistent. UPDATE DEC 2013: Used the machine all summer and still using the machine indoors for our travel team and it's working great. UPDATE Feb 2016: Ok, still using the machine. I coached a 16U travel team last season and took this everywhere. I will run it off my 1000w generator when there are no outlets. Just last night I sanded the wheel and ordered another 2 dozen Jugs Sting Free balls (got 4 yrs out of my last batch and will now just use those for flyball drills). Also, the company has great service as I broke the on/off toggle switch and they sent me a new one for $11 that I received within 4 days. Looking forward to wamer weather so we can get back outside now with my 12U team. Let's hope I get another 4 years out of this machine.
