ProMirror vs Right View Pro video analysis systems
by Fred Aymett
Hack Attack Pitching Machine
I'm opening a new baseball academy in small town Pulaski, tn. Which of these two systems would be best for a small academy. I also plan on using the swing-away hitting stations and tanner tees with a hack attack pitching machine. Are there any other must haves for my new facility?
Swing Smarter Response:
Congrats on opening up a baseball academy in your town, I love the initiative to help these poor young hitters who've developed horrible swing imbalances, and we owe it all to aluminum bats.
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to semi-deflect the swing analysis software to the Swing Smarter community because I haven't used either one of the products you mentioned...however, I use and recommend PowerChalk as my swing analysis software of choice, and it is free to join with limited account feature access. You can add-on and pay for whatever feature you like.
Most of this software is the same, they have great endorsements (MLB teams/franchises using it) and have competitive pricing. I like Sports Motion's product because they give you a ton of choices in high speed video & picture camera bundles, along with their easy to use software and tremendous company support system.
It looks like ProMirror's strengths are their touch screen technology and MADE IN USA quality. Rightview Pro's pluses are their use of Pro models you can compare a young hitter against, and supposedly their top notch instruction. Quality of instruction?? I dunno, so I wouldn't hang my hat on that.
Like I mentioned earlier,
I suppose this is a more in-depth discussion for the Swing Smarter community...Who has used either of these and what do you think is the best? Why??
As for other equipment to showcase in your baseball academy...
I developed The Starting Lineup (TSL) store for this reason; featured there are the "9 best baseball hitting aids on the planet." It's like the Major Leagues of swing gadgets, ranging from technique fixers to stand alone devices a hitter can get a lot of quality cuts indoors and out.
For more information on TSL, you can view a short under 7 minute video on the store's home landing page HERE.
Like you Fred, I love the SwingAway, however I do NOT like wheel pitching machines like the Hack Attack...why not? Check out this Swing Smarter article HERE. I prefer arm pitching machines like the IronMike MP4 or MP5.
I hope this helps Fred, and your feedback is much appreciated.
