Lobster Sports has become synonymous with technological advances in tennis ball machines and have done it again with the iPhone Remote Control. Unsurpassed in the tennis industry, Lobster Sports now offers you the ability to turn your Apple iPhone or iTouch into the most state-of-the-art wireless remote control available today. You can use your iPhone or iTouch as your wireless remote control compatible with the Phenom and Phenom 2 electric Club Series machines, or with your Grand IV, Grand V or Grand V Limited Edition portable tennis ball machine.

The iPhone Remote Control system consists of two key elements for allowing you to use your iPhone or iTouch device as your remote control for your Lobster tennis ball machine. The first element is downloading the free Lobster Sports Remote application to your iPhone or iTouch device, which is available through Apple iTunes. The second element requires the purchase of the Wi-Fi Remote Control receiver that will be factory installed into your Lobster tennis ball machine.

Lobster Sports now offers to distinct apps on the iTunes store:

Lobster Remote Control App

The new and enhanced iPhone App now allows for "Response Display" or visual feedback on your iPhone. When you depress a button on the iPhone to make changes to any program mode or shot element selection a window will hover and display the changes made to your ball machine. Furthermore, by depressing the logo button on the top of the iPhone screen a window will appear displaying the current settings depicted on the machine's LCD display. This app works on all Grand Series machines (EL04/EL05/EL05LE) and Phenom Series machines (EC01/EC02). Lobster Remote Control version 2.0 supports iOS version 4.0 and later. iPhone 3G; iPod Touch (2nd generation); iPad (1st generation); or later.

Lobster Ultimate Control Remote App

Our new iPhone Ultimate Control Remote has the unique ability to provide programmability of your Grand V, Grand V Limited Edition, or Phenom 2 custom court drills. Now you can create, alter, or delete any custom court drills directly from your iPhone, iTouch, or iPad. You can create up to six custom court drills with each drill having up to six sequential shots. Assign an independent ball speed, ball spin, and ball feed rate for each and every shot within the custom court drill created.

The two product images below depict two different screen shots of the new programmable feature. The first image displays the screen allowing you to select the ball location in which you want the ball to land. The second image displays the screen that allows you to independently assign a ball speed, ball spin, and ball feed rate for each ball within the court drill. (The custom programming feature of the iPhone Ultimate Control Remote app does not work on EL04/EC01 models... upgrades are available). Lobster Ultimate Remote Control version 2.0 supports iOS version 4.3 and later. iPhone 3GS; iPod Touch (3rd generation); iPad (1st generation); or later.

For those customers seeking to utilize either of the iPhone Remote Control Apps, along with the more traditional hand-held controller, you can now have the best of both worlds. The iPhone Remotes can be used in combination with the Grand Remote Control giving you the unique option of using either the more traditional hand-held controller or your iPhone to control and operate your Lobster Sports tennis ball machine. Whether your choice is to utilize the iPhone Remote or the Grand 20-Function Remote, or both, you will gain greater control of your training regimen. Either remote control system allows you to make instantaneous changes to functions like: play/pause, oscillation sweep, fully random, 2-line, speed, feed, spin, and much more.

For existing customers of the Grand IV, Grand V, and Grand V Limited Edition, Phenom or Phenom 2 machines, Lobster Sports offers the available iPhone Remote Control factory upgrade for $300 plus shipping.

Why does a 2-year warranty matter?

Does the 2 Year Warranty Really Matter?

Why would one company offer a two-year warranty and another company offer a 1 year warranty? Lobster has so much confidence in its products that it can afford to offer a 2 year warranty. Ask yourself why our competition doesn't have equal confidence in the durability of its products.

When comparing purchase prices between machines, you should consider the two year warranty carefully. The cost of ownership will quickly rise if the machine breaks down soon after the warranty expires. Imagine owning a machine for 14 months, it malfunctions and now you are out $50 to ship it to the factory at least $100-$200 to fix it and $50 to ship it home. A $300 repair bill might make you think twice about the true cost of purchasing that 1 year warranty machine.

Finally, consider that Lobster Sports, Inc has been in business for 39 years – that means we were in business for 20 years before our competition even considered opening its doors. Quality isn't some new found commitment, it is part of who we are and have been for generations. When you buy a Lobster ball machine, you purchase peace of mind because you know you have bought a product built for life.
