What Do You Think About the Power Drive Hitting Tee Fold and Go?
by Patrick White
Fold-N-Go Power Drive Batting Tee
I have two sons (10 and 12 years old) that play Rec and Tournament baseball and I am looking for a swing aid that I can use in the garage during the winter.
Swing Smarter Response:
Thanks Patrick for your submission. If you're looking for something young ballplayers can work indoors with, then the Power Drive Fold-N-Go can be for you.
Indicated in the video, it's simple to setup and take down, it can easily switch over for right/left handed batters, and we can replace the suspended ball with an actual tee if we wanted to hit on the field.
I do like how gradual the sweep in the back is to keep the swing short, however I'm not sure what to make of the anti-lunging bar in front.
The issue is, kids might not always lunge when hitting off a tee (when the ball's stationary). Most lunging is brought out by seeing a pitched ball. I guess the anti-lunging bar couldn't hurt?? I just don't see its added value.
Otherwise, if you can see spending around $220, then go ahead, I don't think you can go wrong with this gadget allowing for small area indoor use.
Myself, and all 30 Major League clubs love the SwingAway, which if you're looking for a quality stationary hitting machine you can use indoors, then this is it.
It's part of Swing Smarter's The Starting Lineup Store: "The 9 Best Baseball Hitting Aids on the Planet." It won't fix the issues the Fold-N-Go Power Drive Batting Tee will, but like I said the anti-lunging bar is a mute point anyway, and if your kiddos can bring the knob of the bat down to an imaginary incoming pitch (barrel above the hands just before contact), then you have the same recipe for success.
The SwingAway does fold up as well, is a little more bulky than the Power Drive Batting Tee, and the only bad thing is the first time putting it together will take about 3-4 hours.
The difference in price will be about $20-50 between the SwingAway and the Power Drive Batting Tee. In The Starting Lineup Store, the SwingAway is listed at $200 shipped. You'll also gain access to 8 FREE Power Packed Bonuses for purchasing.
Sorry for the shameless plug ;) I just love this stuff, and am tired of companies running well-intentioned fathers/mothers astray on baseball knowledge and equipment.
Either way Patrick, you can't lose. Good luck and thanks again for your submission!
