Lobster Elite Tennis Ball Machine Review and Comparison 

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 Comparison"With 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) "Really easy to use and does exactly what you ask him to do...no error! Thank you Lobster for that great tennis trainer." - Shahrooz, owner of the Elite Grand IV (read the full review here) "The machine is very accurate when shooting the ball and the spins generated are very effective as well." Guomei, owner of the Elite 3 (read the full review here) "Great machine! Does everything you need to practice. It's easy to transport and set up." - Tom (read the full review here)

Lobster Elite Series Feature Breakdown:

These tennis ball machines are packed with features, but here is a quick list of the most notable aspects of each: Lobster Elite Grand V LE • Store Up to 12 Custom Drills (6 shots each to 18 locations) • 6 Pre-Programmed Court Drills • Fully Random Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • 2-Line Function • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • Fast Charger • Grand 20-Function Remote Control (optional) • Android/iPhone Remote App Compatibility Lobster Elite Grand V • Store Up to 6 Custom Drills (6 shots each to 6 locations) • 6 Pre-Programmed Court Drills • Fully Random Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • 2-Line Function • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • Fast Charger • Grand 20-Function Remote Control (optional) • Android/iPhone Remote App Compatibility Lobster Elite IV • 6 Pre-Programmed Court Drills • Fully Random Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • 2-Line Function • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • Fast Charger • Grand 20-Function Remote Control (optional) • Android/iPhone Remote App Compatibility Elite Grand 3 • Triple-Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • Ground-Strokes to Lobs • 2-Line Function • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • External AC Power Supply or Battery Pack (Optional) • 2-Function Remote Control (Optional) Lobster Elite Grand 2 • Triple-Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • Ground-Strokes to Lobs • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • External AC Power Supply or Battery Pack (Optional) • 2-Function Remote Control (Optional) Elite Grand 1 • Horizontal Oscillation • Enhanced Spin Control • Ground-Strokes to Lobs • 150 Ball Capacity • Portability • External AC Power Supply or Battery Pack (Optional) • 2-Function Remote Control (Optional) 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.
