get the star
Get the Star, Don't get the lite, unless you are too weak to lift 45 pounds. It's less battery life. I know you are thinking that 2 hours should be enough. But that might be an average battery life per session. Cranking up the MPHs and having the oscillator going my heavy duty battery doesn't last the 4- 6 as advertised. The 2 button remote is worth it. I bought 1.5 years ago and it seems prices have gone up a bit with the improving economy, but when I did my research silent partner had the most features for the least money. Treeton X Balls are the best practice balls all the others feel like you are hitting rocks.
Love my ball machine and I love my one handed back hand since I got my ball machine.
