What is Random Horizontal Oscillation?
This is a motorized movement allowing the machine to rotate back and forth horizontally, allowing the machine to throw balls to the forehand, backhand, and center positions in a random pattern. This is also commonly referred to as “sweep” amongst the tennis community.
What is Random Vertical Oscillation?
This is a motorized movement allowing the throwing mechanics to move up and down vertically, allowing the machine to throw balls at random depths within the court.
What is Triple-Oscillation?
This motorize movement reflects the machine’s ability to provide random horizontal oscillation and random vertical oscillation in combination or simultaneously. This allows the machine to throw balls randomly throughout the entire spectrum of the singles court, from left-to-right and short-to-deep in a random pattern.
What is 2-Line Oscillation?
This motorized movement is another form of horizontal oscillation, but non-random. The machine will oscillate back and forth horizontally, throwing one ball to the forehand side followed by one ball to the backhand side in alternation. This alternation of shots can be selected at different widths determining the amount of foot work necessary to return each alternating shot.
What is the Fully Random mode?This mode of operation allows for all shot elements; ball location, ball speed, ball spin, and ball feed rate to be selected randomly by the computerized software within the machine. This is the ultimate form of player or match simulation as each ball being thrown by the machine will be to a different location, with different ball speeds, ball spins, and at a different feed rate as well.
What are Pre-Loaded Court Drills?A court drill, also referred to as a sequential shot pattern, is a series of shots to a specific location with specific ball speeds and ball spin settings. These court drills are design to simulate either a specific style of player or to practice certain aspects of the game like court strategy and court placement.
What are Custom Court Drills?This refers to machines that allow you to program and store in the machine, your own custom court drills or sequential shot patterns. You can select the specific ball location, ball speed, ball spin, and ball feed rate for each and every ball or shot within the Custom Court Drill created.
Can the machines throw volleys and lobs or only groundstrokes?All model machines are equipped with an elevation or trajectory adjustment allowing the player or user to make adjustment to the height over the net they desire. All model machines will elevate up to a 50-60-degrees for dramatic overhead lobs.
