Awesome machine. Get your outfielders in line without killing yourself with a fungo! It’s super accurate and gets the speed and height needed to work on batting!
I've used it 4 times already for heavy 11u practices (batting practice, pop ups, grounders) and so far so good. Hopefully it continues to do the job.
Excellent product; great service
We love our zooka machine but the auto feeder is a must have. My son and I use it all the time it allows me to set it. Load balls and go shag what he hits. It allows way more hitting reps we would otherwise not have.
Bought this to use in our backyard batting cage and for fielding practice with my 8 and 10 year olds. Decided to go with this over a more traditional machine because my kids are still young enough that we don't need to worry about curveballs or crazy fast pitches and I really liked the idea of it being so portable. It has turned out to be a perfect choice for our needs. Setting up and breaking down is so easy and, because it's battery operated, I can take it to any park without needing a power supply. We also bought the auto feeder and it has been great to free up a lot of my time from having to throw balls for their batting practice. Since I have two ball players, this was really starting to take a lot of time, not to mention the fact that the machine gives them much better pitches than I can. My husband takes it to team practices as well and the kids love it.
Love the simplicity of this machine, especially this add-on. Very convenient and easy to set up.
We got this for outfield drills for our team and we love it. It's a better way to position the kids and see how they track the ball - consistently. I found that we lost a lot of time/reps when one of the coaches tried to hit fly balls. Now, it's a very efficient drill.
An amazing machine. Use it all the time for 8 year old boy.
Great product and it isn�t a constant same pitch is great
My hubby loves this pitching machine-teaching our son to play baseball and he can focus on teaching him how to bat, because he's not the pitcher. Have used it the last few weeks and love it. Our school has the same brand. Buy it. You won't regret it. Excellent customer service-seller reached out just to make sure I ordered the right height (there are 2). He was very kind & shipped that day. Super product.
I am a hitting instructor and love this product. Very accurate and easy to use.
Happy with this product. Load and go When teaching my students has a hitting instructor.
Had it now approximately 2.5 years. It is very accurate with dimple balls. Pitching generally accurate.
When balls are old the machine will loose accuracy, but that is also because of the weight difference between new and old balls. Dirt / clay / moisture can add .5-1 ounces to the balls which effect performance. Not the machines fault.
Make sure everything is tight when doing BP, and it will find its target.
We use it a lot for outfield practice and BP in the cage. Battery is good for an entire practice.
This is an awesome tool in your Baseball toolbox.
Because it is air powered, it does not generate spin on the ball. For BP who cares, your working on technique. For fielding or drills, again who cares. It goes anywhere.
Loosed the rotation handles and you can spin the Zooka from side to side when doing outfield / fielding practice.
Would take this over a pitching machine any day of the week for the younger age groups (6-13). As they get older, sure a wheeled pitching machine has its benefits. This max speed on the 740 is 70MPG I believe.
But this is still great for outfield/infield work for any age.
My son loves his new Zooka. Easy to transport and offers hours of baseball practice.
