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
my son uses the hurricane almost daily. it has improved his swing and made batting practice possible in our very small yard.
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.
This trainer was brought by a kid's dad the day of a major tourney our boy's team played in. The team put up 21 runs on the competition for that first game and then went on to run the bracket and win the tourney. I give much of the credit to the swing timing the kids developed from the short time on this trainer.
both daughter and teenage son are using, gives instant feedback, i shopped around b4 purchasing and this was the best value.
This is a great machine when you are out of hands at a travel tornament or when you have young ones around the house who are always looking to do some batting practice. Great to be able to differentiate solid hits from the uppercut or downward swing. I just wish there was something to make it stop sooner and reset so kids don't get bad habit of swinging at a bouncing stick.
If you get annoyed by the sound of a bat to ball over and over this is not something for you. My son just randomly goes outside and starts swinging away. I am even using it when no one is home to prepare for the home run derby at jamboree!
I almost didn't purchase this aid as I thought it would be poorly built (not very heavy duty). Opened the package and put it together and found out right away that sombody put some thought into the design. Very nice piece of equipment and looks like it will hold up for years to come. My 8 yr old boy loves it as well as my 4 yr old daughter.
I purchased this for my 12 year old son and he loves it. He has been using it every day at least 2 hours per day and all the neighborhood kids have given it a try. My son's batting skills have improved greatly and he is looking forward to showing them off next season. Thanks for a great product.
I purchased the Sklz hurricane for our 7-8 year old little league team to practice batting. The machine is very sturdy, easy to assemble and comes with a transport bag. We are very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend. Only draw back is it is on the heavy side. That being said I believe it is a small sacrifice for how sturdy and well built this machine is.
This product is AMAZING!!! My son has used this product for 15 minutes everyday & it has made a tremendous improvement in his hitting. I'm going to start bringing the SKLZ Hurricane Swing Trainer to every practice for the rest of the team to use. I've even started to use this product to help improve my game.
My 9 year old son, 12 year old daughter, and I even enjoy using it. The height adjustment with tension cords makes this very easy to use.
Bought for my kid who loves it, I love it too! Great for working on batting skills.
The bands come off to easily.
This Swing Trainer is awesome. My kids love it. All ages can enjoy it. It works on eye hand coordination, bat speed, bat power and swing form. It is great.
My son got this for his 11th birthday two weeks ago and has played with it almost every day.
I love the fact that there are no baseballs flying around the yard anymore and he can use this trainer independently. It seems to be well contructed, easy to put together. I think I may need to get a tarp to put over it since I'm not sure if it will get damaged from the rain overtime. I don't know if my son's swing has improved any yet, but he is having a great time practicing.
Purchased this for my son who is 9, looks like it helps with his strength. So far so good, the machine has held up. Plus this price is cheaper with Walmart than any other store including the SKLZ website. I would recommend it, i can tell we will get many years of use out of this. I also would recommend watching youtube videos on maint and how to setup. The tips help, especially from locking up or keeping the grease on.
The quality of the product is really top notch. This is not a toy it is heavy duty and meant to take a beating. After putting it together my son was more than eager to start swinging away.
