    I am thinking about buying a portable ball machine. I looked at the Tennis Tutor Pro Lite model. Its price is acceptable ($700) but lacks a lot features: spin.

    Tennis Tutor Plus model does have spin feature and it costs $1200. Does it worth to pay $500 more for the spin feature?

    What portable ball machine do you reccommend?

    Thanks,

    I own the Tennis Tutor Model 2 (no spin) and it's a pretty good ball machine. I wouldn't mind getting a machine with spin feature. Sports Tutor makes Wilson ball machines that come with spin feature. If you look on their website (sports tutor), you can get a demo of the Wilson Standard for about $900. Tennis Tutor ball machines have a pretty good resell value, so depending on how you look at it, you could use the ball machine for several years and sell it down the line and lose a couple hundred (to me it seems well worth it). I've never used a ball machine with spin feature, so I have no clue if it's worth the extra money. A lot of people have commented that ball machines w/o spin feature get kinda boring.
