This product works well for individual workouts. Great product to work by yourself on foot work and the proper way to field ground balls when the weather outside won't let you go out. My son has been using it for the past 4 years in our barn during the winter or when he can't find some one to throw to him.
Great pitch back! Bought this when my son was born 7 years ago. At the time it was more for me to be able throw on my own without having to find someone else to throw or field grounders. Very sturdy and capable of taking whatever I threw at it. 7 years later it is still going strong and is now also used as a lax bounce back too! I am looking to replace the rubber straps for a livelier action off the net after 7 years but haven't found them yet. Thanks Easton for a great product that has never let us down!
Works for me. My son is a beginner baseball player. We use it to practice catching. He is very tentative about the ball hurting him and really shies away from it. With the net, he has control over how hard the ball comes back and also when it does. After 2 years of having the product, I came to this site to see if there was a replacement net. They don't sell one, so I am going to use some string and zap straps and maybe some duct tape just for fun. (just kidding about the duct tape) I do not have a desperate need for a new net, there are 2 holes in it where one string has snapped. Just passing on my experience with the Jr. Playback Elite. I recommend it and it works as advertized. IMHO
pluses and minuses. We have both the playback elite and the 2 in 1 throw/field trainer with switch hit pitch trainer. The playback elite is much more sturdy and seems like it will last a long time. It works well for practicing throwing and fielding but it doesnt have the switch hitter attachment that provides a strike zone and actully catches the ball. The 2 in 1 throw/field trainer has that but isnt sturdy at all and doesnt seem like it will last long at all. If they combined the two it would be the perfect product!
