Comments about Lob-ster Lobster Elite Model 2 Ball Machine:
A great friend for those who want to improve groundstrokes, volleys etc... when you don't control your working schedule, or no one is around to play with.
Remote control is not a must but surely saves you some minutes.
Suggest 100 balls so you can count the shots missed and figure your percentage.
Load balls in a way most will stay in the upper part of basket. This way you'll prevent a bigger number of balls from satying in the basket as it empties.
The all around court feature offers better result when machine is placed in one extreme side of singles marks (or doubles). If you place it in the middle, most balls will fall out of court either in on side or the other due to angle.
If you are not used to play a lot, take it slow in order to prevent tenniselbow or armstress, which will cause you not to be able to practice for a few days.
Take notes of best positions of ball machine, speed and height angle so that you don't have to go through it again next time you practice.
Ball hopper IS A MUST! And cones can assist you to aim at right places.
So far I have improved my backhand more than anything else, but surely will practice my forehand too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
