Hi Folks,

I have purchased the following products for testing. I will test it for myself, on my kids (they are ages 7,5,3) and some Seniors. Trying to get a variety of players. I will let a variety of players use them to see what they say. Anywhere from Nationally ranked Juniors to the social tennis player.

- Tennis Practice Hit and Tennis Practice Hit Plus http://practicehit.com/index.htm

- 8 board by Grail Sport http://www.8board.com/_media/movies/video_clips.html

I have heard a lot about these but have never tried them. Because I haven't tried them I can't say if the learning will transfer to the court! whic is what we all want. anyway, give me about a month to test them and provide my insight to them.

What is/was the consensus on the 8-board?

I bought the Practicehit. and find it a useful aid especially in those days when you can't get outside to hit on the tennis court.
It would be better if you have a coach next to you making you striking with proper motions.

I am curious about the 8 board t00, it is quite a bit more than the Practicehit. From what I can see on their website, one need someone to feed them the ball. Perhaps Bungalo bill can give us some more feedback.
