Comments about SKLZ® Lightning Strike Pitching Machine:
They advertise 45 mph on high speed but we've never got it above 28 mph on the gun. On slow speed it basically dribbles the ball out of the chute and is useless. Therefore it cannot throw a curve. Accuracy is surprisingly good. However, forget about pop flies and grounders as there is not enough speed even though I only use it with a power cord and not batteries.
