Lobster Sports Elite Liberty Tennis Ball Machine (el0l) 55

Review for elite liberty tennis ball

Price was $949.99. This is the initial review after four trips to park hard courts in dry spring conditions(april 2014). . My motivation for buying a tennis ball machine:. 1. In clackamas county, or i don't know of any reasonably-priced and adequately-maintained membership courts. 2. People's practice schedules (fellow novices) rarely line up, and i need routine to learn this sport and to exercise. 3. Stationary bikes are way too boring for routine exercise. . Pluses:. + does most of what it is advertised to do. * shoots tennis balls at varying angles and speeds. * good repeat-ability for top spin and back spin shots. * angle adjustment is simple. * few device settings to learn. * stable footing. * old pneumatic works are cool. * fast charger is quick and claims to turn itself off to avoid battery damage. * quiet operation. * tough plastic shell. . Minuses:. - highly variable shots on flat and at higher speeds. - why continue to use solid state technology when micro-controllers are affordable and more reliable? . - knobs are just cheap potentiometers instead of knobs that click into place. - handle does not fold, so i have to lower back seats in my suv to make the machine fit. - why advertise u. S. A. When the motor is clearly marked "china"? . - creates a lot of fuzz shooting balls. You need to purchase computer dusters to blow out the fuzz. - price is high for such old technology. - fast charger costs extra and the basic charger can damage the battery. - the remote control is an add-on feature at extra expense and requires the unit to be disassembled. I. Returned mine and just run to the other court side. - the ball hopper does not support 150 balls as claimed. 100 seems more likely. . Summary: i'm having fun, getting regular exercise, and learning to strike the ball more consistently. The liberty is not a good consumer value (neither is a club membership in this area though). But it does 80% of what the sales folks promised. I hope to enjoy at least five years of biweekly use. . The stated warranty is two years. And care must be taken to maintain the battery properly and keep the inner mechanical workings clean. . As a side note, 60-pack tennis balls and compressed air can both be found at costco.

Preface

All in all, i like it but not what i thought i was getting. . Strengths of the elite liberty, . - well made. Feels sturdy. Easily wheels over to the clay court i use next door. - easy to assemble and easy to fold the handle to transport in a car. Can fit in trunk of my audi s6 without a problem. - no issues with battery dying out. Went through 3 hopper full of balls without a problem. - controls easy to read, understand and manipulate. . Weaknesses. - although their website says the range of speed of ball delivery is 2-10 seconds, in actuality the slowest speed it will deliver a ball is every 5 seconds. Nothing i cant handle for the first 20-30 shots, but for shots 30-100+ that is way too fast, especially if it is on oscillate and you have been running from one side of the court to the other. I would prefer to have the range of speed of ball delivery as indicated on their website so i have the option to recompose myself and focus on the next shot. This speed leaves you with three options, 1) either swing at every other ball which is a huge waste, 2) run over to turn off the machine to give yourself a break, or 3) buy the over-priced remote control. . - the oscillation rotates the machine to about the same position just about every 5 seconds as well (1 cycle). So if oscillation is turned on, and ball delivery is set at the slowest setting to throw a ball every 5 seconds, its throwing the balls largely to the same area, even if its oscillating! for instance, with oscillation on at the slowest delivery speed, about 80% of the shots could be delivered as forehand shots and 20% backhand (or visa versa). To have balls dispersed about equally to forehand and backhand, you would need to speed up ball delivery to about one every 2. 5 seconds and one can quickly get winded running all over the court like a madman! . . - this is not a problem with the machine, but i mistakenly thought this would oscillate between base line shots and lobs. Nope. You have to choose one or the other. If you chose baseline, the whole hopper will be thrown as baseline. No lobs and no need to ever rush the net. Gets a little boring with a loaded hopper. . If you can handle a rapid delivery of balls over a sustained period, its a nice machine! Best elite liberty tennis ball | Lobster Sports-Sporting Goods Review as-of ( Oct 2018 ) Quality Lobster Sports Elite Liberty Tennis Ball Machine Designed for maximum durability, its 35-pound ergonomic design and oversized-wheels allow for easy transport, even with a full hopper of 150 balls. The elite liberty was developed to meet the needs of beginners to intermediate players who seek advanced control of both ball speeds and ball spin. Oscillation: random horizontal speed: 20-80 mph ball capacity: 150 court time: 2 hours elevation: manual 0-50 degrees spin: topspin & backspin. Includes basic battery charger. Optional accessories: 2-function remote control, 1-amp fast charger, 3-amp premium fast charger, storage cover, external ac power supply .

It works excellently, however, a remote control should be standard for all tennis ball machines. Did not have one.

Lobster Sports Elite Liberty Tennis Ball Machine
Click to see NoticeLobster Sports Elite Liberty Tennis Ball Machine (el0l)"Love, love, love my new practice partner. He's never late, never complains, never tires. I've had my red-armed buddy for 4 weeks now and i'm out there practicing every morning for about 1. 5 hrs. It functions exactly as described. The design is really well thought through. The ball hopper flips and hugs the body of the machine, taking no additional room. I'm 60 yrs old and have no difficulty lifting it in and out of my car's trunk each morning to head to the tennis court. The wheels with the swing up handle make pulling it a breeze. I bought the remote which, while more expensive than a remote should be, is very practical. I would not want to be without it. Absolutely no issues with the ball machine as of yet. I have had one ball jam (that's after over 6000 ball tosses) which wasn't difficult to clear. Occasionally some balls in the hopper find ways of avoiding being tossed by not funneling downward. But that's very occasionally (and i'm getting very picky). My biggest complaint is the remote (see separate review). I sometimes have to click it 3 or 4 times before it works. I expect better for such an expensive component)."

The F.A.Q. for lobster sports elite liberty tennis ball machine

For the money you are spending, this machine could not be better. Extremely lightweight. Does many functions (all of the ones necessary). No it can't do drills or random shots or that stuff. But for $899, this machine will still kick you butt into shape quick. 150 balls coming at your desired speed and feed rate. And even players in the best shape will have a hard time needing more than 2 hours with this thing. It's not the same as hitting with someone for 2 hours. This is like having one hard hitting point in a singles match that lasts for 2 hours! wonderful purchase, fantastic price. I would like to get a better one in time, but this is definitely worth every penny. . Oh and btw, do not get the freedom version. It is $100 cheaper than the liberty version, but only shoots flat shots. No top spin or back spin.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: Can this fit in a 4 door toyota camry? or would this require a truck/van to transport?


(1) Question: Did any of you try the lobster sports elite freedom? i'm wondering if the $100 difference is worth it. thanks!


(2) Question: What is the dimension (lxwxh) of the shipping package?


(3) Question: Is the battery removable or do i have to bring the whole contraption inside for charging?


(4) Question: I am curious about the noise the machine makes, is it loud? our courts are near a house and i don't want to disturb the neighbors.


(5) Question: Could the owners of the lobster machines please share their experience with different brands of balls? are presurelss balls required?


(6) Question: So this ball machine doesn't randomly shoot in various angles?


(7) Question: Do this ball machine shoot left/right? can it help work on high volleys?


(8) Question: Is there a place to buy it used? how are they used? also for balls do they use pressureless ball with machine? otherwise it dies very fast?



(note) Question: where/how to get Lobster Sports (manufacturer's brand) accessories & similiar Lobster Sports's products

Answer:

Click the marked text to copy link to Clipboard

This is a great machine. I have been using it for about a month, usually an hour to an hour and a half at a time. I charge either every other or every 3rd use, and i haven't run out of battery yet. I initially used the penn pressureless balls, but something didn't feel right. Someone recommended i switch to the gamma ones. They had a few there at the court i tried and they felt much better, more like hitting a normal ball. Then penn's seems heavy or something. As for the machine, definitely spring for the liberty version for the extra $100 to get spin functionality. As far as i can tell i see no point in spending the close to $200 on the remote. Between the time you turn it on and the time the first ball is ejected, you have about a minute which is plenty of time to walk across to the other end of the court. So the on/off of the remote is kind of pointless. I think its only other function is adjusting the feed speed, which i would consider a nice to have, not a must. Only real downside i have so far is that every time i reach down after rounds to turn it off i get shocked (very lightly, just enough to be annoying). So i now use my racquet handle to turn off. After a few weeks of use i can already tell a difference in my forehand top spin.

Best lobster sports elite liberty tennis ball machine (el0l) in review

I purchased this machine about a 10 days ago after much deliberation and study. I wanted the best machine i could get for under $1000. I read bad reviews about this product along with good ones. There are cheaper machines out there that have similar features. I needed portability, which the big wheels and long handle supply. I needed side to side, check. I needed topspin and backspin (underspin on the control panel), which this machine has unlike its cheaper cousin the "freedom" model that is $100 cheaper. I also needed the longer battery life, this one goes for 4-6 hrs and the freedom only advertises 1-2 hours. . We've used it 4 times so far. My daughter is a highly ranked junior and needs more court time between her lessons and drills. Believe me, this machine is far cheaper than more lessons or drills for the juniors. It allows them to work on the strokes and techniques they've learned that week with consistent and reliable feeds. She loves the lobster. After she's done i hit with it for 90 minutes and we've never seen the battery light go red yet. We also like to use the side to side and hit together at the same time, which is fun for us. . Pros: very portable, repeatable feeds (each ball lands within 3 feet of the previous one with same pace and spin unless you're on the side to side sweep), long battery life, true top spin and back spin, easy setup with directions written by someone that uses english as their native language, and pretty quiet. . Cons: we had one ball out of 96 roll into a wet spot on the court. A barely damp ball in the hopper will jam up the entire machine (this is well-documented so no fault to lobster). It took a while to un-jam it. Instruction on how to do this without tearing flesh from your arms as you reach inside to clear the jam would be a nice touch. Also, the remote would be nice. I didn't get it, should have. I looked on online store for a remote, just the one that's like a key fob, not the one that looks like a texas instruments calculator, they're $150. That's ridiculous. I've already bought and paid for the remote technology, it's in the machine. The remote costs lobster about $5. I haven't looked anywhere but online store for this, so maybe it's cheaper somewhere else. But $150 for this is absurd and it would save me the 4 or 5 balls that get shot out when i'm going to the other side of the court after i've started the machine up. Lastly, i wish that when you're using the side to side action that it would return to middle position when you hit the off button. You have to play with this a bit, but not too big of a deal. . All in all a good machine that i am glad i bought.

Loved it. It does what it says. It's portable and i am having lots of fun.

I have waited a long time to get one of these for myself and i love this thing!

Z. Megan, Southwark says

Easy to transport and setup. Kids hit more balls in a session. Run two activities at once

O. Sheila, Wiltshire

Very good at everything it's supposed to do. Only reason it didn't get a 5 star is because the handle which collapses has a difficult and very unreliable collapse system, a couple of pins to push in to stow the handle. These pins are difficult to push in, and at times i have to use a car key to push them in. I'm 6', 180, 8% body fat, shouldn't be that hard. Poor engineering. But thats minor, overall very good.

I bought this liberty machine(like new for $827) to practice tennis alone on the court without any hitting partner. I can practice my shots for long hours without need of anyone in my opposite court. I got it delivered it yesterday and tested the functionality without balls. Everything works as mentioned. The is one discrepancy in the elevation markings. In the it is clearly mentioned that liberty machine has 50 degree elevation, but machine it is printed only 40 degree so kind of wrong impression about their honesty in giving the correct specification in actual machine. I will test it on the court tomorrow and give further feedback on elevation and top spin and back spin and speed. For 10 degree less elevation on machine then what is on online store. Com and lobstersports. Com, i can give only 4 stars. I stay on second floor and it is not easy to carry machine 36lbs every day for charging internal battery. So i decided to check the internal circuit layout and found a solution to connect the battery externally and carry only the battery home for charging. Lot of relief as i can keep the machine in my car. Let me tell how to separate the battery from machine, it is quite easy if you know how to check the polarity for +ve and -ve terminals. Please be careful before connecting the battery externally and connect correct polarity for xlr cable and battery. I have made a custom xlr cable to connect to battery. I modified the xlr connector and using only two pins of the xlr cable . 1 & 2 pin only. Xlr pin 1 is +ve and 2 is -ve. Lobster machines have an xlr connection port to plug in external battery pack. The lobster battery pack 12v 18ah with fast charger is $179. So i decided to buy a cheaper 18ah battery an online store for $37. Bought an xlr cable cut it and used the male side connector to battery. We can buy xlr connectors separately without cable and make our own cable. Please check the continuity of the +ve and gnd wire using multimeter. I made the connections wrong twice and two 7. 5 a fuse blown away. Thank god, i have connected the fuses in line to protect the machine pcb board in case i make the wrong connections. I found out that the lobster machines has reverse battery connection protection circuit. So i saved my brand new machine from getting fried due to components burning on the pcb. . I am using two battery chargers one 1. 5 a schumacher charger from online store $25 for the 18 ah battery and another battery tender . 75 a charger ($27) for the 8. 5 ah battery which was previously inside the machine but now it is outside the machine in the external battery box. I bought this box from online store for $12. I bought the xlr cable for $10 monoprice brand . The cable is not 16 awg as mentioned by monoprice only the outer sleeve is thick making it 16awg, so if you can solder and make your own xlr cable that would be great using 16awg or 18 awg wire. I posted the pics also for everything. Please do not forget to make the xlr cable correctly and with correct polarity. Use 16 awg wires for safety as 18ah battery has higher current than internal 8. 5 ah battery. Connect only one battery at a time to xlr cable and another when first one has depleted. Enjoy court time of 6 to 8 hrs . More review on the way. Please let me know if any questions. I took the machine to the court yesterday and after messing around with the adjustments with elevation, speed, feed time, spin control and finally started playing. I am really amazed as the balls were consitent in their desired spot and i was able to practice for 6 hrs continously as i have total 2 batteries. I left with 2 more hours of juice left in battery. I tried the horizontal sweep but stopped it after 15 mins as it made me tired very fast. I have not tried the overhead lob yet but will try it next weekend and will update my review. The top spin and underspin is great, though need some adjustments on the control panel for speed and elevation. Overhead lob is great, i practised at max elevation and speed around 50mph , need to adjust as per wind blowing. Overall great machine and true partner so far.

Nice tool. The strap that holds the battery in place arrived broken and for that reason a 5 stars was not given

W. Wilson, Bournemouth says

The machine arrived, with the battery not hooked up, and the battery compartment restrainer freely sliding inside the machine. I watched the video from lobster's website on how to replace the battery and opened up the machine. Found the battery to be near the motor on the side, as opposed to be in its own compartment. Moved the plastic u-shaped battery holder to the right place, and battery into it. The fastening velcro was also broken from the metal ring, but luckily still usable for holding the battery in place. The video showed two velcro, while inside the machine, only one broken velcro piece was freely sliding around. Also the ball trajectory pointer had some defects, with some extra notches that i have to remove with a knife. So, it looked like a manufacturing problem before assembly was completed. . After that is fixed, i charged the battery, and the machine worked! i feel good that i saved lobster the lost profit for return and re-shipment. Because i do like the design of this machine, and it has the features i need and it works. . Played with the machine for a week and really love it.

This is a good ball machine. Did my bit of research and it seemed like a good compact machine for the price range. I've used it a couple dozen times during summer and i would say i'm happy with its performance. It's not like the ball ends up in the same spot always (maybe a feet or two here n there or more sometimes) but i guess that's acceptable for an entry/mid level machine. It does create a good bit of tennis wool ( :) ) but it's not too much trouble. (haven't used other machines so wouldn't know if it's too bad). The knobs are a bit sensitive with quite a bit of variance for minute changes so i guess lobster could have done a better job there. The charging instructions were absent so had to call customer care to figure out the led light changing sequence. The online manuals for lobster seem to have a different order. If i remember right, while charging, - it's solid red - then blinking red - then blinking green - then green for full charge. Was happy with the manual elevation, spin, feed rate, speed change options but for the sensitivity as mentioned above. The horizontal oscillation feature is great and works well (again with the spot accuracy limitation). It's very useful when say 2 of you want to practice at the same time. 10 - 15 mins playing singles in that mode will knock the wind out of you! all in all, im happy with the purchase. Note: when the item arrived the packaging (even internally) looked suspect but i decided to keep it.

D. Clara, Redcar and Cleveland says

Overall good, a couple thoughts:. . 1) i wish there was a guide or something that had suggested elevations/speeds for different kinds of drills/skill levels. 2) the role of elevation cannot be understated. Perhaps equally or more so than ball speed. If you're having trouble getting the machine to fire over the net, make sure you crank that elevation up to at least 20. My preference is to keep it around 30 for ground strokes. 3) the horizontal "sweep" feature was disappointing. I expected more of a true "random" left-right distribution, that could have been a misunderstanding on my part (or a mis-characterization of marketing on theirs). 4) this sucker is deceptively heavy and has a few sharp edges. Just be careful when you're lifting this out of the trunk of your car! . 5) i could just be out of shape, but i get a real cardio workout using this even with max. Delay set at 10-12 seconds :)

K. Claudia, Georgia

My wife loves this machine!
