We bought it for improving hitting, but we are now using it for fielding as well. It's great to place the ball consistently for high pop-flies or line drives and have the kids learning how to judge and move to them. It's a great confidence builder. We are accomplishing 4 times the work that we would do in a regular hitting/field practice, in one practice because the repetitions are so quick and consistent.
The yellow dimple balls are a must for practicing location pitches. Aim the ball for the outside, low corner and that's the pitch you get every time. Use regular baseballs for realistic game-type hitting.
There are few batting cages in our area and they're hard to book, expensive, and not always working correctly. And our league doesn't have batting cages. We would spend a lot of time just getting ready to hit balls, not anymore.
My son suggested using the machine for catcher's drills, blocking in the dirt and reaching for wild pitches. Great idea, can't wait to try it.
In every respect, it has exceeded our expectations. The machine is durable, the battery lasts easily more then two hours and the company is great about support. After three years of extensive use, we had to replace a few parts. In trepidation, I called the company, not even sure if they were in business, etc. I got a real person who was very helpful and who sold me only what I needed. Our Zooka stands out in my mind as one of the best values for the money of ALL the purchases I've made in the last twenty years.
To get the most out of the machine, there are a few things to know (which are specified in the manual and yet I've seen people in our league use the Zooka and complain it's not accurate.) First, if you want the most accurate pitching, use the dimpled balls. Generally, use the same color and density balls and you will get the most consistent results. Second, when you're ready for the next challenge, use game balls. The stitches make for much more variation. Third, just when you think you've gotten everything you can out of your Zooka, check the owners manual. You can vary the speed at all levels AND you can vary the mix of pitches. Even the most experienced kids will find themselves forced to concentrate very carefully.
We've also used our Zooka to practice flyballs, infield etc., excellent for this too.
Our Zooka is STILL going strong. I applaud the designers. Thanks for making a quality product!
It provides a timing mechanism so that the hitter can time the pitch. This is needed so that the batter learns how and when to load, similar to loading on a live pitcher.
About three years ago I purchased the smaller tripod, which I prefer as my players got older. With the smaller tripod, I can tilt the Zooka slightly upwards, which gives more velocity and still be in the hitters strike zone.
It saves my arm, the players love it, and it's a great tool to improve hitting.
