ATTN: Silent Partner ball machine owners

I've had my eyes on the Silent Partner LITE for a few years now and think I'm finally going to make the investment in one soon. I've owned a ball machine before (Tennis Tutor Jr.), so I know all the positives and negatives in owning a ball machine. My question is this: Is there an ideal time to purchase one? I see they're on sale right now ($699 as opposed to their regular price of $799), but do they run better sales at any other time(s) of the year? I don't mind waiting for a little while to save even more money. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I bought a silent partner last year and guess what, they were also "on sale". Honestly, they always show the prices as if on sale to draw customers in, but in reality, the price hasn't changed in almost a year now. If you want to buy one, do so now. I don't think you will see a significant price drop if any in the coming weeks/month.

I kind of assumed that was the case, but didn't know if they actually discounted them even more off of their everyday "sale" price. I'd be willing to even wait until the holiday season rolls around if I could save another $100 or so, but if the current price is as good as it's going to get then I'll order one sooner than later.

I thought Silent Partner occasionally sells their returns and refurbished machines on ****. They don't have any for sale today though. I purchased my refurbished machine directly from them about 4-5 years ago at a reduced price.

I saw a "demo" on the bay being sold directly by SP a few months back... I bid on it but it wound up being sold pretty close to the price of a new one. I've never seen an "amazing deal" on a good ball machine. Most have good resale value and are in high demand.

Me too - think it was 1.5 or 2 yrs ago. I figured they fab as many as they think they will get orders for based on past stats and when they miss the monthly target they just discount the excess.

Great machine. OP, just pull the trigger.
