We recently bought this machine to aid our two Little Leaguers 8 and 11 with their new hitting program. We had a player on our team this past season who had the less expensive version of this model. He was the best hitter on our team, hitting off his machine on Sundays with his family and neighborhood kids. His parents started letting us use the machine for our team practices. What a great tool. Our batting practices started having great game results. We had to get one of these for our off-season training. We bought this up-graded version because it has more velosity and should be helpful for quite a few more years.We bought it for improving hitting, but we are now using it for fielding as well. It's great to place the ball consistently for high pop-flies or line drives and have the kids learning how to judge and move to them. It's a great confidence builder. We are accomplishing 4 times the work that we would do in a regular hitting/field practice, in one practice because the repetitions are so quick and consistent.The yellow dimple balls are a must for practicing location pitches. Aim the ball for the outside, low corner and that's the pitch you get every time. Use regular baseballs for realistic game-type hitting.There are few batting cages in our area and they're hard to book, expensive, and not always working correctly. And our league doesn't have batting cages. We would spend a lot of time just getting ready to hit balls, not anymore.My son suggested using the machine for catcher's drills, blocking in the dirt and reaching for wild pitches. Great idea, can't wait to try it.

I bought this to help my kids with their hitting and fielding (pop-ups). The pitching machine comes as advertised. I haven't run out of battery life while out on the field for several hours and using the machine is a breeze. This one is like the cadillac of pitching machines. Easy to setup and use and just works as advertised. I use combination of hard balls and dimple. Great machine. I highly recommend!!

We bought the higher end Zooka and ball feeder four years ago. I never expected the product would hold up as well as it did and figured if we got year out of it, that was good enough to justify the costs of team trips to the batting cages etc.In every respect, it has exceeded our expectations. The machine is durable, the battery lasts easily more then two hours and the company is great about support. After three years of extensive use, we had to replace a few parts. In trepidation, I called the company, not even sure if they were in business, etc. I got a real person who was very helpful and who sold me only what I needed. Our Zooka stands out in my mind as one of the best values for the money of ALL the purchases I've made in the last twenty years.To get the most out of the machine, there are a few things to know (which are specified in the manual and yet I've seen people in our league use the Zooka and complain it's not accurate.) First, if you want the most accurate pitching, use the dimpled balls. Generally, use the same color and density balls and you will get the most consistent results. Second, when you're ready for the next challenge, use game balls. The stitches make for much more variation. Third, just when you think you've gotten everything you can out of your Zooka, check the owners manual. You can vary the speed at all levels AND you can vary the mix of pitches. Even the most experienced kids will find themselves forced to concentrate very carefully. We've also used our Zooka to practice flyballs, infield etc., excellent for this too.

... this is probably the Rolls Royce of portable pitching machines. It's easy to use (for the dad's or the coach's benefit), it can pitch either the rubber ball that come with it or real baseballs, even badly scuffed ones. It can't deliver a fastball over 65mph, but with real baseballs it comes close to simulating a knuckle ball. It's sturdy and durable. My son got his while he was in Little League - a city all-star, by the way, chiefly for his defensive play. He used it for three seasons, in the third season mostly for firing pop-ups and high line drives to be tracked down. He kept it in clean condition. Now that he's graduating from high school, he decided to sell it on e-Bay; he got an immediate response and sold it for a bit over half what we paid for it in 2002. Not a bad re-sale value.There's no such thing as equality in sports. Playing opportunities favor some kids over others. Boys whose fathers were athletes have the advantage in every way, both coaching and heredity. Some towns and some school have decent fields and classy batting cages. And some families can afford summer camps, private lessons, top-quality gloves, and zookas. After years of volunteer coaching and grounds-keeping, I wish the playing fields could be leveler. If you buy this machine to give your kid that 'competitive edge,' do society a favor and teach him to share it as much as possible with less privileged peers.
