Lobster Elite Tennis Ball Machine Review and Comparison

The benefits of owning your own tennis ball machine are endless, but a few of the most common include convenient practice scheduling, reliability in the serve, ability to repeatedly practice specific strokes, and the lack of complaining from the other side of the court—not that your hitting partner would ever complain.

If you’ve made the decision to invest and are in the market for a tennis ball machine, you have and will need to take a close look at the Lobster Elite Series: The Elite 1, 2, 3 and the Elite Grand IV, V and V LE.

With six ball machines making up the Lobster flagship collection, we thought a product feature and tennis benefit breakdown would help.

But first, let’s review some comments from our customers.

Lobster Tennis Ball Machine Customer Reviews:

Lobster Elite Tennis Ball Machine Review and ComparisonWith the Lobster’s size and great handle with large wheels, I make it to the court in one trip with my tennis bag on my back and a 150 ball hopper slung on one shoulder while pulling/pushing the machine with the free hand – real easy actually.” Bryan, owner of the Elite Grand IV (read the full review here)

The information above provides a great breakdown of the various Lobster tennis ball machine features and options available. You still need to consider how often you will use your ball machine, how many people will be using it, and of course, how quickly you will improve your skills. Purchasing a lower model with fewer features may be fine for now, but what will you do in two or three years (or less!) when you outgrow your ball machine? When you do make your decision, make sure you choose a tennis ball machine you can grow into.
