Find Your Ball Machine

For 2011, new machines from Lobster, Match Mate and Sports Tutor join the list.

If you’re considering the purchase of a ball machine, you’ll be excited to hear that the USRSA has updated its Ball Machine Selection Guide for 2011. This is the only source anywhere that allows ball machine buyers to compare the features from all the different brands in one easy-to-use guide.

Five new machines have been added to the 2011 guide — two each from Lobster and Silent Partner and one from Match Mate. To see how they compare to all the other ball machines available, check out the chart on pages 34 and 35. You’ll see the specs for the five new machines printed in red.

Remember, many machines offer option that can be added at the time of purchase. We list all the features that come standard with each machine, but we also list all the options available, along with the cost of adding each.
