    Tennis Ball Machine which one is fastest mph/spin. Can it be hacked for faster speed.

    After extensive research, I invested in what I felt was the most feature rich, programmable ball machine available in 2010.

    Tennis Ball Machine which one is fastest mph/spin. Can it be hacked for faster speed.

    I've got a Lobster Grand Elite and I'm pretty sure the "speed" setting can be cranked up to 95mph (shown on the digital lcd screen & iphone/iwatch remotes). And I believe it! I've had my machine almost 8 years now. I'm a 4.0-4.5 player and I almost never program/set the speed beyond 65mph...

    Ball Machine Recommendations

    Can't say enough, or over-recommend the benefits of investing in a feature rich ball machine with advanced remote control!!! I researched all the various machines and companies for years. I was'nt sure which ball machine "feature/function/option or ability" was going to be important, crucial or...

    Question - Lobster Elite 5

    When calibrating......many factors can influence and require adjustments. I would'nt fret too much over needing to adjust, nor would I spend too much time trying to get ball to hit the T perfectly or even real close. Some of the factors that will effect the test calibration shot: Wind...

    First time poster, ball machine related

    You will be gobsmacked over how quick/fast your backhand improves (excels) after hitting against a good ball machine!! And can add/adjust/change/implement MULTIPLE variations or "nuances" of backhand strokes, grips, shots, spin, etc. - FAST! I'm not kidding. You can...
