I have had this machine for almost1 yer now. It’s the perfect machine to teach batting mechanics. It is not super heavy duty but it is defiantly not a toy. I use it w my 6 and 8 year olds all the time for batting practice and they love it. Works best with foam style practice balls (light flight). Doesn’t work so well with regulation weight dimple balls. I brought it to my little league practice for pop-up drills and it’s a little under powered for that unless I use the foam balls. For that reason alone I am looking to upgrade to a bigger machine, but will continue to use H Jr for years.
great little pitching machine
Great machine for the price! My 8 year old son loves it! I think the Heater dimpled balls work best, but will work with leather hardballs. The dimpled pitching machine balls are more accurate where the hardballs are unpredictable. Great product!
My brother in law coach loved it for our grandson
Surprisingly good quality for the price. The first ball tends to come out slow as the wheel takes a few seconds to spin up to speed but after that it is very consistent. It has even taken a solid line drive hit from an adult batter and survived unscathed.
we love it !
