The upper arm of this Slugger device is loaded with up to 8 baseballs and will release the loaded balls at preset intervals of 6/8/10 seconds depending upon personal preference. The lower arm, which the ball rolls down & are launched off its end, can telescope to accommodate the height and swing style of various individuals. The entire unit breaks down for portability, which is nice.
I've seen our young neighbor practicing with an auto pitching machine and huge baseball net set up across the back of the house to catch all the balls she hits. This Slugger device is a clever and well-designed device to aid beginning players yet compared to the set up of our neighbor, the Slugger would be time consuming to load the 8 balls over and over again. Our neighbor would bat 8 balls in no time. Still, there is a huge cost differential to consider. The Slugger's Tee configuration is wonderful, however.
You do need a Phillips screwdriver for initial assembly. It comes with a sheet of adequate illustrated instructions. It involves removing the battery compartment cover, inserting the AAA batteries and closing. That compartment has the on/off switch and the timerYou opene the legs and assemble the poles and you are ready to go. It can be adjusted for soft toss hitting, soft toss fielding and as a batting tee. It uses real balls including soft balls, baseballs, and tennis balls.
Overall this is a helpful practice device. It can accommodate different heights and and can be used with or without a partner. Getting it right the first time takes some patience but once you've got it to your preferences it works quite well. The different intervals at which the balls can be released is probably my favorite feature. It seems reasonably sturdy and can be used indoor or
out. while it won't make a Mickey Mantle out of a Mickey Mouse, you will, with time and use, see improvement.
Like least: It was slow, did not go as far as I thought they would, not weather proof, and does not stand up steadily.
I received this item for my honest opinion and was not compensated.
The soft toss feature is excellent. You set some balls on the top of the unit, switch it on, then every 6 to 10 seconds (depending on the setting) another ball is launched, gently.
I really like this - you can practice alone, easily set it up time and again. The height at which the ball is launched from is easily adjustable to a huge range of heights.
The tripod base is very stable. It is all put together quite superbly. A great device for practicing!
Another big point in this thing's favor is it's consistency. Once set, it tosses each ball at a predictable path, which is very good for developing muscle memory.
Assembly was very easy, almost trivial. The major sections are already in place, so it's a matter of just putting it in. It also breaks down for travel very easy...again, very nice to support practice at home and then at the field.
I kind of wish it held more balls, but for something like this that's not a realistic critique. The workaround is to have the coach feed the balls into the device while offering guidance to the batter.
It's quite well made, sturdy, and operates very well. Very good for supporting practice. I like it a lot.
Tested with softballs, hardballs, tennis balls, and hockey balls. They all worked ok. Softballs were the best since they were the biggest and heaviest and got some more air than the other ones.
I could see how this could be useful, but it really doesn't emulate a pitched softball.
