Lobster Elite Freedom Battery Powered Tennis Ball Machine Review

A tennis ball machine makes a perfect warm up and cool down tool, and can also provide a great workout when you’re short on time or a person. It can also help you practice to sharpen up your technique.  Lobster offers affordable tennis ball machines for both the home and tennis club environments, and that can be used by both beginners and advanced tennis players alike. The Lobster Elite Freedom ball machine might be just what you’ve been looking for to step your game up, and work out even on the days you don’t have a tennis partner.

The Elite Freedom ball machine is very cost efficient relative to the ball machine market, and is also suitable for all tennis players. The beginners can get just as much use out of it as advanced tennis players. Not to mention, it also comes with a two year warranty which will give anyone some piece of mind.

This ball machine has a high appeal because of its numerous great features. It is capable of horizontal oscillation, which means it will take you from hitting a forehand to hitting a backhand then to a forehand again… and repeatedly back-and-forth. It is also capable of going from ground strokes to lobs with just the flip of a switch. You can change the range of time between balls to anywhere from 2 to 12 seconds, which means you can choose how hard you’ll work to hit the balls back. Although this ball machine is inexpensive, it doesn’t skimp on power. It can spit out balls up to 70 MPH. All this versatility will enhance your tennis training, and of course provide you with a great, sweat-inducing, calorie-burning workout.

The Lobster Elite Freedom ball machine was built to be extremely functional and convenient. It can hold up to 150 tennis balls, and once you have used all of them, you can use it as a ball mower. It has a battery life of about 2 hours, so if you charge fully it, you can get in a pretty good workout.  It allows you the flexibility to play all out for a couple hours, or instead do some drills here and there. Furthermore, it is easily portable since it is smaller in size. It is compact enough to fit in the trunk of most cars, and not too bulky to handle on your own.

With all of these features the Elite Freedom ball machine offers, when choosing the ball machine for your home or club, you should keep in mind a couple amenities it doesn’t have. This ball machine doesn’t make the ball spin so you can’t practice returning a ball that has a lot of top spin. This isn’t a big deal, but if you wanted that feature you would have to upgrade to the Lobster Elite 1 ball machine.It also doesn’t come with a wireless remote, which obviously would make it easy to stop or switch settings. Again, it’s not a big deal, but if you wanted that feature you would need to upgrade to Lobster’s Elite Liberty ball machine.

Nevertheless, Lobster’s Elite Freedom ball machine will help improve your tennis game, give you a great workout, and still keep your wallet happy!
