Bought a 12 x 12 x 10′ youth dimension netted batters cage and erected it in my driveway so the ball machine opening within the web was lined up with my Simon 2 sitting upright inside my storage shed. This Machine by no means disappoints.
I used to be standing contained in the cage, paddle in hand, security glasses on, roughly 11″ from the ball machine. Even on the low setting, at that shut distance, these balls had been coming quick and exhausting similar to an influence tempo volley on the NVZ.
It is a nice follow studying expertise. You’ll be able to experiment with open and shut confronted paddle returns and again spin returns.

The transportable netted batters cage price $129. Nice funding to get me again within the recreation, And have a spot to follow anytime I need.
