Offering an expanded oscillation function with three versatile positional settings; narrow, medium, and wide, the grand four will sharpen your forehand and backhand ground strokes while improving your footwork exponentially.
All these features can be controlled by Lobster's remote for Apple which allows you to use your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or iPod as a remote control!

I like this machine a lot. It does what it says it will, and it does it well. I ran it through its paces when I got it (and the weather improved) and it performed flawlessly.
I regret not getting the remote. But $300? C'mon! I decided I wanted the advanced features of the next model up, over the convenience of the remote. I just wish they had an option for a remote that just paused and started the machine. As the remotes for the Elite I-III models do. I may at some future date buy the $300 one and retrofit it.
Get it from Amazon. Same price, free shipping with Prime. 'Nuff said.
However, when I used it for the second time a few days later, some of my balls got damp by rolling through some small melting snow rivulets of water by the fence. When the wet balls fed into the machine it freaked out and promptly shut itself down saying it was jammed. I went home and cleared the balls out and it started up again just fine. I called Lobster and confirmed that damp or wet balls will jam the machine.
I also discovered a broken main power switch on my unit and asked them to replace it. Very nice people but I received the wrong part--twice! At that point I called Amazon and explained the problem and they resolved it promptly. Also a very nice person. Hooray for Amazon!
I have found that the machine's accuracy is affected by wind, temperature and humidity. And pressurized balls have a different trajectory and bounce than unpressurized ones. The degree of wear and pressure also affects the balls. Not a lot, but some. It kinda adds to the fun if you have a few pressurized mixed in with the unpressurized. That way you don't get complacent about where they are going to go.
All in all I am very happy with the model and what it can do. I'm getting a good workout, my strokes are getting better and I don't bore a tennis partner with my inconsistent playing.
Now Spinfire and Silent partner looked good and offered good feature but always throws the ball at the speed set by you vs. varyng speed that Lopster Grand IV offers. Thsi featre to me is unique and must as in real match play you don't get balls at the same speed. Moreover, Grand IV offers 6 preset match plays which I found it usefully.
Lopster is also lighter an easy to carry with you in a small car. I have Chevy Volt and its fits pretty well. I have been using this machine for the last 2 weeks and love it. Unlike Spinfire pro with lopster the whole machine moves so you predict which direction the ball is coming.
Overall a great investment if you want to improve your game. Now I can play hours together without looking for a partner to play with. Yes, I burn a lot of calories.
