Issues with The Personal Pitcher Craftsmanship?

personal pitcher to flimsy it is a good idea but the owner doesnt want to back his warranty instead he tries to tell you how to fix the machine over the phone and unless you a electronics expert you will break the machine like I did and I guess he is hoping you will buy another machine from him. like I did and when something goes wrong with the second machine I now just scotch tape the thing up.I would like to find another company who makes a better more reliable whiffle ball pitching machine one that will not break as easy and throws more strikes a machine with a timing device like the pesonal pitcher has. Even if its a little more expensive a company that will honor their warrranty so I wouldnt have to deal with the owner bob richards again
Swing Smarter Response:
Hi Jerry, sorry about your woes in dealing with The Personal Pitcher. Did you get the cheaper Personal Pitcher or Personal Pitcher Pro? What exactly went wrong with the machine? Was it the craftsmanship?
I'm very interested because this is one of my favorite hitting aids and one that made The Starting Lineup Store. Anyone else with similar experiences?
Jerry, you may want to try the Sandlot Slugger as an alternative, it is more expensive, but I'm wondering how it compares functionally to The Personal Pitcher Pro.
Thanks so much for your submission!
UPDATE!! We've issued a successful challenge against the Personal Pitcher Pro and have replaced it at the lead-off position in The Starting Lineup with the Sandlot Slugger.
