The SKLZ® Sport Radar measures the velocity of just about any ball or puck you can throw, shoot, kick or hit. Simply set it on the ground or a bench near the target path, and it will display the speed in mph or kp/h on the large, easy-to-read LED display. It stores your top speed per session and all-time, so you can keep track of your progress.

If you put the unit directly behind a net and have 35-40 feet of spacing from the pitcher's plate, you'll get good repeatability and readings 98+ percent of the time as long as you're around the strike zone. The true velocity may be slightly off, but what is more important is the ability to show speed improvements and the change in speed on change-ups, drop balls, etc. At less than a third of the cost of a pocket radar device, it makes for a good entry-level purchase.
