The Phenom is also equipped with six pre-programmed six shot drills that simulate the most popular styles of play - grinder, all courter, power baseliner, moonballer, slicer, and lefty. These incredible drills mix up speed, spin, feed rate, and trajectory preparing you to dominate your competitors. The Phenom offers unrivaled full random oscillation. This revolutionary design allows the machine to throw balls throughout the entire spectrum of the court mixing up speed, spin, trajectory, oscillation, and feed rate. This fully random technological advancement allows for the Phenom to realistically simulate true match play, a feature that is unsurpassed by any machine in its class.

Fully Random Oscillation
with variable Speed & Spin

The Phenom is also equipped with three pre-programmed six shot drills that simulate the most popular styles of play - grinder, all courter, and power baseliner. These incredible drills mix up speed, spin, feed rate, and trajectory preparing you to dominate your competitors.

Moonballer Drill

Moonballers can be a nightmare to play against. Think of it like slow pitch softball. The high arcing pitch looks like it should be easy to hit, but it's not! To play the moonballer, you need patience or a combination of patience and a good midcourt swinging volley to move forwards and finish the points. Try practicing both!
Also, don't be afraid to move back and let the high bouncing ball drop to a more comfortable height.

Slicer Drill

Some of the most effective club level players are called "hackers" by their friends. Others call them "slicers and dicers!" Typically these players can slice or chop their groundstrokes, keeping the ball low and hard to return. To play a "slicer" remember to bend your knees a little lower than normal, minimize unforced errors, and be ready for a long match! These players are usually very steady and will move you all around the court.

Lefty Drill

Most players are right-handed, which can make playing a lefty a relatively uncomfortable experience. Just don't be the player who doesn't even realize they just played a lefty until the match is over! It's important to know that most left-handers have strong forehands groundstrokes and strong backhand volleys. But, they often have weaker slice backhand groundstrokes and have trouble with low forehand volleys. The feeds from the machine in this sequence are designed to simulate what a lefty might throw at you!


The Grinder Drill

The Grinder tries to wear down his opponents physically and mentally, waiting for the other player to make a crucial mistake. This player hits high, loopy, moderate spin shots that will challenge all players.

A six ball drill that utilizes the back court with different types of spin.

Power Baseliner Drill

The Power Baseliner is a player who is explosive in their shot selection, playing with pace and aggression and minimal spin. This player exhibits an attacking style, known as "first strike" tennis.

A six ball drill that utilizes full back court with little spin and more ball speed.

All-Courter Drill

The All-Courter is a player type that focuses their game on tactical savvy. He/she can compete well from the baseline and will come to the net to finish points. When playing this type of player, expect a great deal of shot variety.

A six ball drill that utilizes both full back court and front court with some top spin and less ball speed.


In addition, the Phenom is also equipped with the most extensive 2-Line function found today. With its three versatile positional settings; Narrow, Medium, and Wide, you can groove your forehand and backhand ground strokes or use it as a great way to warm up your shots. Furthermore, this dynamic machine combines 2-Line function with random depth and feed rate adjustment, a feature not found on other machines.

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.
