Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must have ideal conditions! Great concept but like everything these days it's cheaply made and for what it cost I don't let my boys use it without me. Once you get it level and the height zeroed in it is fun and great practice. But let me say there's not many days with no wind I mean it has to be almost zero or the balls are everywhere. Needs flat level ground and I mounted it to a piece of plywood because it would wobble and move on flat level grass. Don't get me wrong it's great practice for all ages from 5 to 55 but for over 60$ I want to use it anytime it's dry and not have to constantly adjust it because we use it in the yard not the driveway. I would pay 100$ for one made better and with normal daily use in mind.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sklz lighting bolt This product is meant to be used within 10 feet of the batter. It isn't a cheap version of a pitching machine. I bought it for 2 boys both 6 and 10. Its meant to help them with hand eye coordination. It will do that. It will not teach them how to hit a curve. If you are looking for a pitching maching be prepared to spend over $300. This is absolutely a great tool for helping your child with hand eye coordination and bat speed. If they can hit these balls on the button then they will hit a baseball. BTW, the boys thought it was fun as well. Downside is that balls can easily be lost and they are expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my 11 year old I've bought several machines for my son over the past 4 years. Some were expensive $700 to this SKLZ $60 one. I love this machine because it makes him react quickly to a very small ball. We use the quick stick to hit with which is only 12 oz., with a diameter of maybe an inch or inch and a half or so. I think it improves hand eye corodination because the ball and bat are smaller. I don't back up the machine to 30 ft. I put it about 10-15 feet away from him and the balls come at him faster. He gets so pumped when he gets a hit. Another advantage is we are able to use this in our house in a large room. You could also use in a garage or outside. My advice would be to buy the extra bucket of balls because they fly all over and you can lose them easier. The machine does take a minute to turn on etc., and isn't the most accurate, but kids need balls flying in different spots. I think it is a great training aide for all ages and it is fun. Not bad for the price if you ask me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boys Love It We set this up in the finished basement with a catch net behind the machine. Our 12-16 year old boys use a hard plastic or mini bat with it (the red metal SKLZ bat marks up the walls & carpet!) It is harder than it looks, when you set it up 10-15 feet away, the ball comes in really fast. They and their friends have a great time with it! Buy the machine & extra balls, skip the SKLZ bats!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy design, not durable or long-lasting I've been through 2 of these machines in about 10 months. In addition to being unstable and inconsistent in pitching, the motors give out in just a few months. Dick's let me return one but the replacement lasted only a couple months longer. We took care of the machine and followed the directions but the motors seem to fry in a very short period of time. At least we can use the small balls to hit for soft toss but the machine is a waste of money and makes me not want to buy any other SKLZ product that has a motor or something mechanical.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product We bought this product several weeks ago. Many problems. 1) - without batteries the base is too light to keep the thing upright. 2) pitches balls way too inconsistently - only 5 of 24 balls on average stay in the strike zone, the others fall short or fly left or right - so bad we think the unit could be defective. 3) slow as a dog -barely makes it 20 feet. For kids of age to hit the bolz balls, the speed is not effective training. Taking it back to store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Practice When I use this I do admit that you have to get close to it. I play high school baseball and if I stand about 10 feet away or so it is like hitting an 80 mph fast ball because it piches about 30. People just need to relize that you can not hit off of it at normal distance. You have to adjust yourself to how fast you want it to pitch to you. You can adjust the highth by a knob on the back. This improved my hitting by a bunch.
