    Hey folks! I am after a ball machine for my high school team. I need something that allows me to use 150+balls! has an oscillator, and a remote.

    I really like Playmate volley machine but it's a bit pricey. I want something that is going to hold up with high school boys and I was hoping to stay around $1200. What other options are out there?

    I like the Volley, too. If I had more funds when I purchased my machine, the Volley would have been my choice. Have you thought of going with the Half-Volley for now, and upgrading to the Full-Volley in the future. These are fully upgradable.

    I have a Silent Partner Edge Star which has a lot of things going for it. Less than $1,000.00, oscillation, basic remote, heavy duty battery, good velocity and spin, and it throws lobs. A basic machine that works for me.

    SP also has their up-line Smart model, programable drills, memory, match play simulation, sophisticated remote, etc. All the bels and whistles for $1800.00.

    In between, there is the Rival ($1,249.00) and the Quest ($1,499.00). Both of these have a lot of extra features that my Edge Star does not have.

    Customer service has been great with SP.
