Went cheap with a 1 wheel machine a few years ago. While it served us well my boy quickly outgrew it. The hack attack jr does so much more and is built like a tank. I'm sure this will be the last machine we buy.
Highly recommended. The Hack Attack is very reliable and has been a game-changer as far as outfield drills
Been using this for the last couple years and it holds up great for all our drills.
Gold standard for team practice. Set up and use is straightforward. Pitches everything.
Solid pitching machine, very accurate. Pretty easy to learn how to dial in the breaking balls as well. This product is pretty heavy so not planning on traveling with it. Otherwise, I love it and will have it for years.
Fantastic pitching machine! Very consistent, and fast cycle times. Transporting and maneuvering the machine is tricky for one person, but given the right tools (e.g. ramps), can be done. Very easy for two adults to handle Had an early glitch with the computer board while connected to a generator, but after that, has been easy to operate and very reliable. It's been used primarily with youth players at a lower speed setting for both pitches and fly balls, but I'm eager to give it a go at high speeds for pitching to adults.
This is the best pitching machine I have ever owned. We use it for our 7u and 13u Team. We use it to pin point fly balls, blocking drills for catcher, hitting and several other drills.
Best pitching machine in the business. I researched a to of products and am glad I purchased this one
first off, Jonathan totally went out of his way you make sure my transaction on the website went smooth. not only did he make sure it was done in a timely manner, he sent me a multiple emails confirming delivery with confirmation information. second, the moment Jonathan called me back when i called after hours really surprised me. i wasnt expecting a call back until the next business day but he went out of his way and called me back at 6pm PST (9pm EST). LASTLY. his customer service and dedication to his brand is by far the best ive ever come across. thank you Jonathan, thank you pitchingmachineusa. i will definitely recommend you to all of my family, friends, and baseball network. ok now on to the review with the junior hack attack pitching machine. this is probably the best bang for your buck (no tax no shipping) from pitchingmachineusa for backyard batting cages. i own a 55x12x12 and it absolutely spits fire. i have 2 boys 10 and 13 and since the distance is shorter we get speeds up to 90+ mph. i highly recommend this machine if your serious about getting your ab's. we also use it for catching drills, curveballs in the dirt and for framing.
For portability, accuracy, durability and ease of use during batting practice, the Spinball Wizard is the best 2 wheel pitching machine buy today. Suitable for baseball, softball, cricket, and even tennis, the Spinball Wizard is perfect for players of all skill levels and ages.
Top Level Accuracy and Performance
You or your team will be more than ready for game time. The Spinball Wizard has a top pitching speed of 105 mph. The wheels can be manually adjusted independently. Setting the speed for each wheel with the intuitive dials gives you precise control over the backspin or top spin of the ball. Then, when you rotate the head clockwise and counter-clockwise, you'll be able to pitch side arm curves, screwballs, 2 & 4 seam fastballs, curveballs, sinkers and sliders, as well as knuckleball (no spin - wheels are set to the same speed). For both baseball and softball varieties, you get a nice laminated diagram showing you exactly how to set both the head and the wheel speeds for your intended pitch.
Once you've selected your precise pitch type, you can expect amazingly consistent performance. Pitch accuracy can be measured as the number of pitches that land in the batter's box, or "strikes". Spinball and Rawlings machines have the best accuracy we've ever seen. The Spinball Wizard scored 97/100 in a test. This is due in large part to the superior, 1-inch thick urethane wheels. Urethane is a synthetic compound that holds up to changes in temperature and speed better than air tires. The Spinball Wizards wheels are extra thick, which gives that much more stability and consistency of pitches.
Easy Customization & Upgrades
Once you have the Spinball Wizard, any version of it at all - you can purchase conversion kits at any time. So, you can start with a combination package today or simply upgrade at a later time if you like. The differences between baseball, softball and ARP are simply the legs and ball feeder tubing. The leg height is important to consider, as the release point varies for baseball and softball. The ARP legs are extra tall, so you get a very realistic release point for overhand pitches. Once the legs and feeder tube are set, you can adjust the gap between the wheels to get the best grip or "pinch" on the ball possible. We're happy to offer the all new turret style automatic ball feeder, which is compatible with all Spinball and Rawlings pitching machines!
Aerospace Engineering You Can Count On
Every detail of the Spinball Wizard is designed to deliver strikes during batting practice for many years to come! Spinball's engineers have an extensive background in aerospace design (the same as Boeing), so you know you're getting a superior product. The Spinball Wizard strikes an ideal balance between strength and lightness. The unique formed steel frame is curved away from the batter, which helps to dampen recoil. The recovery time of the wheels is also world-class. This refers to how quickly the wheels can return to their intended speed after each pitch. The Spinball Wizard beats the typical 8 second speed; give it just 3 seconds and you'll never notice any slowing of the wheels!
