    This is a great practice tool for little league on up... The person who complained that this did not work right, did not read the directions-- you have to grease the shaft in order for it to operate smoothly-- this is revealed in the instructions. My teams have used this for three seasons and it works really well. You can't beat the current price!

    Definitely one of the better batting tees available today. Rugged and durable, well worth the money. Should last my 6 yr old for many years to come. Suggest that if you set it up in the basement to put tape on the floor to show your child where to put their feet and setup appropriately to the ball. Did this for both my 6 yr old and 3 yr old. After only a couple minutes for 2-3 times a week I've seen a dramatic improvement with their swings. Looking forward to ball season to see the improvement on the field.

    Great product overall, the only disappointment was the carrying case. Zipper broke first time I used it but the product is very nice over all and is a great tool for my two teams to practice and warm up

    I do like the product and so does my son.I've been contemplating purchasing this item for a while now.I don't like the fact that you have to keep assembling/disassembling the product each time it's used,it's a hassel and annoying.It's also very heavy to carry,even though it comes in a carrying bag.The heaviness is good for stability purposes,but for transport-well that's a horse of a different color,especially for a child.The item should fold up flat for easy portability and be easy for a child to carry,with or without a carrying bag.Except for the suddenly reduced price just recently,I was going to spend the money,much more,and get the R.B.I.Vortex.The product is the same concept,but weighs just 18lbs.,as per the video w/the child lifting it up above his head from the ground,and folds flat in seconds and assembles in seconds with all parts attached and no tools needed.Sometimes spending more can bring you less headache in the long run.

    • A. Not with baseballs or softballs, but if you have ever seen a boom stick it is just like that except you don't have to hold it.

    • A. At the end of the "stick" is a hard ball. It is the same type as if at the batting cages. Don't use your game bat on it. Buy a cheap metal bat or a wood bat do not to ruin an expensive game bat.

    • A. That is exactly how we use it now...in the basement, not staked down and it works great! I use it with the boys and we take full swings without any problems. Not sure how tall the ceilings are in our basement, but they are not over 8 feet, so even with that we have no problem using the machine indoors.

    • A. The radius of the device is about 7-8 feet, however, with a batter swinging, you'll need plenty of space for your swing, next to the machine.
