Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great to Bad Out of the box I was totally impressed by the RBI Vortex Swing Trainer. They put a lot of thought into all aspects of a great concept that was well planned, designed, and constructed. They thought through a lot of little details like having stakes and sandbags. The ONLY thing I noticed was the outside pocket (for the stakes???) was upside down and a little too short, so they could fall out. My son and I tried it out and it worked really well. I put it away after using it for about 30 minutes. The next day my son used it again, but when trying to raise and lower the shaft, it wouldn't budge. Apparently, the inner tube was bent so doesn't slide up and down, so we could only use it at one height. I sent an email to RBI explaining the situation two weeks ago, but I have never received a reply from them. The third time we used it, a couple hex screws used to keep the outer shaft attached to the inner shaft loosened and a small (red) piece of metal which is used to tighten and loosen the shafts to allow for adjusting the unit fell out and I had loose pieces falling down. I was able to get a hex wrench and tighten them back up and it stayed tight...at least for now. The unit works at this point, but I essentially had to take a rubber mallet and pound it into a height that will work for my son to use. I was so impressed by this product when I received it, as I see everyone else that has reviewed this product, but unfortunately, this one has had its fair share of problems and am surprised that I never heard from the company after two weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional This is well made, portable, and easily to set up. My son has been using this every day since we got it and does this on his own. Immediate feedback and makes the hitter concentrate and improve eye hand coordination . June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Instant swing results My 7 year old son is a good consistant hitter, but has a dip in his swing which causes him to hit a pop fly most of the time. I have talked to him about his swing even videos his swing trying to show him where his problem was. I have to remember he is only 7 and probly doesn't understand or doesn't have the ability to correct his swing. The vortex corrected his swing in less than a minute. He has to swing level if not the ball goes no where and vibrates his hands. He loved this he hit on it for 2 hrs by himself until he had blisters on his hand. May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Within a few hours my 7 year old son was much better at batting. Worth every penny. I purchased this for my 7 year old son so he could improve his batting skills. It was worth every penny. My son loves it. You won't be disappointed... April 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by What I want I bought this for my 2 grand kids to work on there hitting. The youngest is 5 will be 6 in September and the oldest is 7 and will be 8 in August. Both of them is get the good use of it at this time. April 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only the best RBI VORTEX This RBI Vortex training aid is just what i and friends have been looking for to help our sons get ready to hit in Cooperstown NY 2015... The vortex is easy to set up and my 13 year old son just loves it. No chasing the ball anymore and it also helps timing, mechanics and confidence with muscle memory. I like having my son take all kinds of pitches and the Vortex does it all.. I give this RBI Vortex a 5 star for the product and costumer service. August 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My kids love this! Very well made. I first noticed this product at one of our travel ball tournaments. It looked very similar to my son?s old batting trainer. After taking a better look you can really notice the quality of the Vortex. Luckily my local Dicks (El Segundo, Ca) had one in stock. I love the ease and portability of the unit. I have three kids and have noticed a huge difference in their hitting and power! Great training tool. My daughter plays Fast-pitch so we purchased the extra softball head as well. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally! I have been searching for a way to teach my younger players how to produce a level swing and generate power. The RBI Vortex has allowed me to now teach with ease. My 8 year old daughter can carry and set this up by herself. We have purchased other like machines, but they have been too heavy/bulky. I can't believe I didn't purchase one sooner. I am picking up another one soon! February 27, 2015
