BALL LAUNCHER TRAINER
Have a budding baseball star in your midst? Help him hone his skills on the diamond with the Easton Hyperlaunch ball thrower, which slings balls at a variety of angles with power. Ideal for infield or outfield drills, the Hyperlaunch fits comfortably in the hand somewhat like a large slingshot. Once armed, it can shoot balls over 200 feet, letting players practice fielding hot shots at third base or charging an outfield line drive in anticipation of a play at the plate. Users will also dig the unit's durable steel frame and tough latex tubing, which won't break down at the first sign of stress. And when you're finished with fielding practice, the handle folds up conveniently for compact storage in a carrying bag or box. A fun training device for kids and adults of all ages, the Hyperlaunch comes with three soft neon 9-inch balls and is backed by a 90-day warranty.
In 1922, Doug Easton began crafting custom wood bows and cedar arrows in Watsonville, California. Although Doug produced tournament-grade, footed cedar arrows for the archery champions of that era, he was constantly frustrated with the inconsistency and lack of uniformity of wood shafts. Convinced that consistently straight uniform arrow shafts were impossible to manufacture from wood, Doug turned his attentions to aluminum. In 1939, he began manufacturing aluminum arrows in Los Angeles. His instincts about this material were correct, and in 1941, California archer Larry Hughes won the national championship with a set of Doug's aluminum arrows. This was the beginning of a trend that would change traditional archery and transcend into numerous other sports arenas over the next 50 years. Considered one of the world's preeminent innovators, designers, and manufacturers of sporting equipment, Easton has a reputation of producing products for the highest level of performance.

I guess I will have to build my own sling replacements.
I like the Hyperlaunch better than the Accubat as you can go from grounders to line drives to straight up pop flies, where the Accubat is really only good for lazy pop ups (or maybe I just don't do well with racquets). Anyway, a slingshot is just more fun than a racquet!
BTW, the local Menards home improvement store sells the doggie tennis ball verson of this launcher for $19.99.
While it is supposed to be able to launch a ball 200 feet, the most I have seen anyone attain is 100 feet. I don't know how Easton was able to attain 200 feet because juat to get 100 feet requries the latex sling be drawn back about as far as it can go.
While it can be used to launch both fly balls and ground balls. there is no spin on the balls so it doesn't quite simulate a ball coming off a bat But it will do.
In order for the coach to get the proper distance takes quite a bit of practice. Some coaches can throw the ball as far as the Hyperlauncher so it may not be worth the cost. It is much more accurate than trying to hit a ball with a bat.
