Product "QuickSwing PX4 Baseball Trainer" by SKLZ

About the Product: Joe Mauer's original Quickswing is an effective batting aid for developing a short, quick swing. The Quickswing PX4 is the next evolution offering 3 additional ways to train: tee simulation, soft toss and turnaround double play. The PX4 is a versatile solo trainer or coaches tool. It auto-feeds 12 baseballs, eight softballs, or 14 SKLZ small training balls every six, eight, and ten seconds. If you add the included adjustable angle rebounder, the QuickSwing becomes a soft toss machine.

  • Multi-use batting and fielding trainer. 
  • Develops fast hands, sharp reaction times and solid mechanics. 
  • Ideal for any skill level. 
  • Auto-feeds 12 baseballs, 8 softballs or 14 small training balls. 
  • Releases balls every 6, 8 or 10 seconds. 
  • Unit requires 3 size AA batteries (not included)

My Review: This is a very simple product consisting of a tube that is attached to a support in an angle that make the balls slide towards the open end. You feed balls from the top and there is a mechanism that releases the ball every 6, 8 or 10 seconds (you chose the time according to your needs). Depending on the configuration you assemble it, the ball might bounce on a trampoline so you can hit it afterwards. You can also try to hit the ball before it bounces. But the overall idea is that this equipment helps you to increase your eye/swing coordination. After two weeks using this equipment, my daughter showed better results in her hitting during games.  This is a valuable equipment, not expensive like a real throwing machine, and produce the expected results is you dedicate some time for your training. 

Amazon.com was kind enough to provide this product for me through their Vine Program for reviewing and I was not requested to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own.
