From what I read (trust me, i've searched and searched:mrgreen: ), I gather that there are lots of people on this board who may own certain ball machines or have experience with some that have not spoken up about them just yet. I, like many others, would Love to purchase a ball machine and would really like to hear about what brands people have and how they feel about them.. so maybe we can try a summary type thing just to get people's overall experience with certain brands.. feel free to list... brand/model: price paid: (if you don't mind telling..) how long you've owned it: how often it's used: feature you like the most: feature you wish it had: is the top speed 'fast enough': was it worth the purchase: how portable is it: (heavy, light, awkward, too big for trunk, crappy wheels, etc, etc) has it been reliable: any thoughts about the company on reliablity issues: (friendly, helpful, not helpful, don't know yet, etc.) if you could do it all again, would you buy the same model/brand: your personal rating: (3.0, 3.5, 4.0, etc.) many thanks in advance to all those who contribute. josef PS. please only submit if you have personal experience with the machine. no hearsay.. as we are searching for Truth.. lol.
