I love everything about this machine and my game has really stepped up since purchasing--went from a 3.0 to 3.5 in less than 4 months. Its easily fits in the trunk of my car and performs exceptionally on the court. I typically hit no less than 2 hours/session and have yet to out last the battery. I did have I one small issue with a noisy wheel and the customer support I rec'd was top shelf. I actually find myself choosing my Lobster over some of my (lesser skilled) playing partners--well worth the money!!
If you are going to get the Lobster machine, the remote is great to have. It allows changing the balls so much easier and you do not need to walk all the way across the court and over to the machine when the balls aren't coming the way you intended. I would say it is a must! Wonderful addition to a great machine!
Great for beginners and advanced alike. Feeds consistently and accurately with pressureless balls. Have had this model for 7 years and the battery just now needs to be replaced, probably due to leaving the charger plugged in too long. But the machine still works like the day we first used it. Ordering a new battery today.
