Tennis Is An Investment In Both Time And Money. When You Buy From Lobster Sports, You Purchase Peace Of Mind. That's The "Built For Life" Promise.
The Elite Freedom, economy model and the Elite 1 base model are an industry standard amongst battery operated portable tennis ball machines. These machines are equipped with horizontal oscillation which allows the machine to throw balls randomly from left-to-right and right-to-left across the court delivering shots to both your forehand and backhand. For those looking to master shots with spin, the Elite 1 provides the most enhanced spin control of any machine in its range.
Lobster Sport's patented triple-oscillation assembly on the Elite 2 & Elite 3 provides for both random horizontal oscillation and random vertical oscillation to occur simultaneously (at a fixed speed). This incredible feature allows the machine to throw balls randomly throughout the entire spectrum of the singles court. From left-to-right, as well as, from short-to-deep, triple-oscillation is designed to simulate true match play.
Looking to master your forehand and backhand ground strokes? The Elite 3, Grand IV, Grand V, and Grand V LE are equipped with 2-line oscillation. 2-line oscillation refers to a specific setting on the machine that allows the machine to throw balls to two designated points or lines for alternating forehand and backhand ground strokes. Choose from up to three positions, narrow, medium, and wide for maximum development of your ground strokes. Select a wider setting to incorporate additional foot work that will challenge even the best of players.
The Elite Grand Series, Grand IV, Grand V, and Grand V LE offer Fully Random oscillation. Like its triple-oscillation counterpart, the Fully Random oscillation program will allow the machine to throw balls throughout the entire spectrum of the singles court. However, using the latest in ball machine technology, the Fully Random program allows for the machine to randomly mix both the ball speed and ball spin, along with location to simulate true match play. This feature is so cutting-edge you will forget you are playing against a ball machine.
In addition to the state-of-the-art Fully Random oscillation program, the Grand Series feature pre-programmed court drills preparing you to play against the competition. The Grand IV is equipped with six pre-programmed six shot drills simulating the most popular styles of play, while the Grand V and Grand V LE include six additional exercise drills for maximum performance development.
As the leader in tennis ball machine technology, Lobster Sports has broken all barriers with the Grand V and Grand V LE models. These technologically advanced machines provide custom programmability which is unsurpassed by any portable tennis ball machines on the market today. Whether you choose the Grand V with its six selectable ball locations or the Grand V LE with its incredible 18 locations, the possibilities are infinite as you program speed, spin, and feed rate, too. The Grand V and Grand V LE are also equipped with the most revolutionary control panel found today. The "Lexan" control panel utilizes "touch-buttons" instead of dials, knobs, and switches. It also has a digital LCD screen which allows you to view all menu selections and settings.

For operation of the machine while "on the fly", the Grand Series has an optional 20-function wireless remote control available. The state-of-the-art compact controller allows you to adjust most every function of the machine with just a push of a button. Enjoy instantaneous changes in functionality like; play/pause, oscillation sweep, fully random, 3-line, speed, feed, spin, and much more. The Grandslam Series Wireless Remote control is compatible with the Grand IV, Grand V, and is sold exclusively with the Grand V LE.
Most tennis ball machine manufacturers toss around the phrase "portable ball machines" to describe any machine that runs off batteries, regardless of weight, battery capacity, or ease of transport. All Elite Series machines are equipped with an ergonomic 3-foot folding handle for ease in transport. By pulling the machine back with the handle, allowing the two 8-inch transport wheels to touch the ground, the Elite Series machines have a built-in hand-truck or dolly design allowing even the youngest of players the ability to move the machine easily. With its reversible hopper and folding handle the Elite Series machines can fit into the trunk of a compact car or be stored in limited spaces.
Your Lobster Sports tennis ball machine makes an ideal baseball pitching machine, using tennis balls to practice hand-eye coordination skills. It is excellent for baseball batting practice, grounders, pop-flies, and catcher-blocking drills. Due to the fact that they are facing a tennis ball, batters are more likely to step into the pitch unafraid, and transfer that skill when facing a high-speed baseball or softball. Our machines can be set to pitch the ball accurately to the identical spot, time after time. Our 150-ball hopper allows the batter to get in hundreds of swings per hour without causing wear and tear on a pitcher's arm.
Goal tending in both lacrosse and field hockey takes practice to develop. Rather than needing another player to drill with, use one of our Lobster Sports models that provides dual oscillation. The goalie can practice dives and saves in order to develop automatic responsiveness in game situations.
Have your receivers use a Lobster Sports tennis ball machine to develop soft hands. If a receiver can learn to catch a small tennis ball on the run, catching a football will be much easier. The result? More touchdowns!

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.
Who doesn't need new tennis balls? We're sending one lucky winner 72 Tretorn Micro-X tennis balls. Good luck!
