        It's sturdy, flexible...good for all ages. However, this could be improved by using a more realistic baseball target rather than the synthetic one provided.

          As a Professional Hitting Coach, I fail to see any benefit from this product. The Hitting Stick on this machine comes at the batter in a circular way The batter's only way to hit the ball is to pull it or hit the ball constantly in front of home plate. Through repetition is will reinforce or create major swing flaws by forcing the hitter to pull off the ball by opening up his body and hips too early. By using this machine will make the batter worse..not better.... I don't get it.

            This product is probably the best hitting aid I've seen available. If used frequently, there is no way your swing speed and power can't increase! Very tough built product, so it will last.

              Great for practicing your swing. Can be used by children and adults. Quickly changes height and tension for different hitters. Be sure to do the drills from the manual. They are great for instructing hitters of all levels.

                  My son has been usung the Hurricane hitaway for a bout a week now. I see improvement in his contact and power of his swing,I am looking forward to his upcoming all-star little league game,as he had trouble making contact with the baseball.I am encouraging him to use it for 10 minutes to 15min. a few times a day.

                  Comments about SKLZ® Hurricane Category IV:

                  Purchased the SKLZ Hurricane for my son. With 30 minutes per day of practice, his batting improved dramatically within two weeks. The Hurricane promotes bat speed, hand/eye coordination, swing plane and power. I played competitive baseball through college, and this training equipment is as well built as any I have ever seen or used.

                  I would highly recommend the SKLZ Hurricane to any baseball player from age 8 to 80. Furthermore, I would recommend The Sports Authority for any equipment/clothing purchase. You will not find a better retailer anywhere.
