SKLZ Bullet Ball Baseball Training Aid
Great Product Works Excellent
We have had this ball for over a year and the battery is still good. We use it maybe twice a month. Never had a problem with it. Every pitch is consistent. My 9 year old loves it when he knows he is getting in the high 50's. It is easy to calibrate for 46 or 60 feet. Only on rare occasions does it not show a good reading. It is so easy to use. Why so many posters here have problems with it, I don't understand. Sometimes when I miss the catch, it bounces up against a tree, but we never bounce it on the ground or use it with a bat, or when its wet, and it has performed great. And for $15 bucks you can't beat it.

It's fun for a toy but not too accurate
The ball is fun for a novelty item but that's about it. Once in a while the speed sensor seems to be accurate but most of the time my 9 year old is either throwing it 20 mph or 120 mph so it isn't really consistent. It definitely does not replace a radar gun.

We gave one each to our grandsons, but their dads were the ones who oooo'd over them. The boys had to have the "greatness" explained to them (they're young...10 and 7). Now they can't wait to try them out...including the dads.

Works fine so far
Based on other comments about the product, we always use it over grass to avoid damage. Seems to work fine and is very accurate.

Shortest life span of any product..ever
One throw....45 feet....tried to recalibrate to 60....and it broke. Your [$] is better spent on Three Card Monty on the streets of NYC. Seriously.

So far so good
My 9 year old son has only had this for a week. We are using it a lot and enjoying it. Seems reasonably accurate. If it still works a year from now I will say it it great.

It doesn't work.
The readings were inconsistent and instructions for calibration were not clear.
