Tennis Tutor Plus - A Review Powered By Docstoc
					I had the opportunity to give the Tennis Tutor Plus a good workout
recently, or perhaps it would be more accurate for me to say that the
Tennis Tutor Plus gave me a good work out recently. The T.T.Plus tennis
ball machine can simulate the strokes and spin of a beginner,
intermediate, and advanced player. Using this practice machine will help
your game improve, no doubt about it.

When I head out to the tennis court to practice, I always like playing
with someone that's better than me. They inspire you to play better just
to keep up. That's really the only way you can get any better. I don't
want to blow my horn too loudly here but it isn't always easy to find a
player who is a caliber better than me. Andre Agassi or Jimmy Conners
just doesn't come around too often to challenge me. It's usually because
the guys I like to play with are busy or are already scheduled with
someone else.

So whats the next best thing that can be done? Get out the T.T. Plus Ball
Machine. And one of the major factors that I look for in a tennis ball
machine is the ability to simulate a real opponent. That means getting
balls hit to me from side to side, front court and back court, and with
topspin - the more difficult the shot, the better, because that is what
helps me improve. Not many ball machines on the market offer this. Tennis
Tutor Plus was definitely up to the task.

The Tennis tutor plus is not a cheap machine but none of the good tennis
robots are. If you are serious about your tennis, this is a serious
machine for serious players. When it comes to tennis robot machines, you
get what you pay for. You can always buy yourself a tennis twist for
$200. The Tennis Tutor Plus is for the big boys.

I put the tennis tutor plus through the paces for hours. I was returning
balls to this machine for what seemed like an eternity but was actually
about 4 1/2 hours at final count. Even though there was an indicator
light letting me know it was getting low on power, I ran out of power
before the tennis tutor did. Machine started beeping on me but I was done
first. Extended battery packs and AC power are both available as options
on the tennis tutor plus. They say it takes roughly 12 hours to be fully
charged. No problem, as I needed to rest anyways.

The Machine holds 150 tennis balls, about 2 full ball hoppers worth.
Swinging back at 150 consecutive tennis balls is pretty challenging and
quite a workout. The Tennis Tutor Will Run You All Over The Court.

You can set the device to pitch balls to the same depth but in an
oscillating manner, as in left to right. Or you can set it to pitch the
balls to you in a random vertical oscillation meaning both long and
short. You also get elevation control on the machine. Practice overheads
or net skimmers that are often difficult to play.

With a variable ball speed, the tutor was pitching balls to me at a slow
10 mph all the way up to a very quick 85 mph. The ball delivery settings
can send you a ball every 1.5 seconds or every 10 seconds. It's all up to
you. You can even adjust the spin, both topspin and underspin with the
spin control knob on the tennis tutor.
The advanced control panel on the tutor plus makes all of these
adjustments a simple no brainer. Just set it and forget it until you want
a change.

So what's the bottom line on this tennis tutor plus machine? It's a
thumbs up in my opinion. Truth be told I prefer playing against my human
partners but nevertheless I loved the tennis tutor plus and I highly
recommend it. For practice when your playing partners are non existent,
the tennis tutor plus is an acceptable and excellent substitute.
