What about the Jugs Toss Machine?
Hey great site. I didnt see any reviews on any
soft toss machines like this.
Jugs A0601 Soft Toss Pitching Machine W/ Remote
Also what about the pro hammer for girls fast pitch (13yo and up)?
Swing Smarter Response:
Hey STV, thanks for the post, and no, surprisingly the Jugs Toss Machine hasn't been submitted for review.
Here's Jugs's big features of the product...lightweight (13 lbs), portable and rechargeable (up to 8hrs). 2-year guarantee. Holds 14 baseballs or 10 softballs. Optional remote control unit available. The prices range from $279 to $379 depending on if you want a heavy duty battery and/or a remote control.
Jugs makes great innovative products, their pop-up net gets quite a bit of love, and of course they're known for their wheel pitching machines.
And as most of you know, I don't like wheel pitching machines here on SwingSmarter.com.
Let me reiterate, Jugs makes quality wheel pitching machines, I just don't like hitting off any machine with a wheel.
Back to the Jugs Toss Machine...
What can I say, but I like it. It can be a less cost alternative to my favorite automatic soft toss machine, The Wheeler Dealer, which is $379 shipped from The Starting Lineup Store.
However, with the Wheeler Dealer Spitter you can adjust the height and frequency of the ball toss, and it has a bigger ball holding capacity.
The bottom line?
There's nothing wrong with the Jugs Toss Machine...I'd love to hear the readers' comments below...
To answer your question, STV, about the ProHammer for girls' fast pitch...yes, ProHammer just came out with a 32-34" fastpitch softball model equivalent. You can get it by going to The Starting Lineup Store and selecting the fast pitch model.
