Three sets of legs create three different release heights: 24\" for softball, 48\" for baseball, and 48-84\" for the Adjustable Release Point (ARP) model. The ARP option provides the most realistic baseball release height available, and is also the preferred machine for cricket use. The single adjustment clamp makes setup quick and easy- all three angles (horizontal, vertical, and twist) are set at once, and won't shake loose under vibration. The machine can be rotated to throw pitches from any angle to simulate right or left handed pitchers as well as throwing grounders and fly balls.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eFlexibility - Every machine starts out as a combination machine.

Our competitor's profiled wheel tread is only 3\/8\" thick at the center, causing a much higher shock load on the motor shafts, and requiring a self reported 8 seconds recovery time with real baseballs. Pneumatic wheels are almost impossible to keep balanced because they change shape at high speed from centrifugal force. As the speed increases, the unbalanced rubber tire expands, but the balance weights mounted on the steel wheel can't move, so the wheels become unbalanced. They also tend to leak air and gloss over from use, reducing grip and therefore accuracy and speed.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eBall and Socket Adjustment Mechanism - All three axes are set at once - horizontal, vertical, and twist.

The faster the spin, the more it curves. Fastballs have backspin, which cause them to rise, or at least fall slower than they otherwise would. Sinkers and curves have topspin, causing them to drop. Knuckleballs ideally have no spin at all and move randomly.

The Spinball Wizard two wheel pitching machine features a versatile design that allows the same basic machine to be used for baseball, softball, and cricket. Three sets of legs create three different release heights: 24" for softball, 48" for baseball, and 48-84" for the Adjustable Release Point (ARP) model. The ARP option provides the most realistic baseball release height available, and is also the preferred machine for cricket use. The single adjustment clamp makes setup quick and easy- all three angles (horizontal, vertical, and twist) are set at once, and won't shake loose under vibration. The machine can be rotated to throw pitches from any angle to simulate right or left handed pitchers as well as throwing grounders and fly balls.

Flexibility - Every machine starts out as a combination machine. The only differences between the baseball, softball, and ARP / cricket machines are the interchangeable legs and ball feeder tubes. Single use machines can easily be upgraded to combination machines later by purchasing the appropriate upgrade kit. Motors are mounted on slots to allow for major adjustments between baseball and softball use, as well as for minor corrections for wheel tread wear and ball hardness.

Top Quality Wheels - Spinball's solid wheels feature a urethane tread that is a full 1" thick for lower shock loads and almost instant speed recovery. Our competitor's profiled wheel tread is only 3/8" thick at the center, causing a much higher shock load on the motor shafts, and requiring a self reported 8 seconds recovery time with real baseballs. Pneumatic wheels are almost impossible to keep balanced because they change shape at high speed from centrifugal force. As the speed increases, the unbalanced rubber tire expands, but the balance weights mounted on the steel wheel can't move, so the wheels become unbalanced. They also tend to leak air and gloss over from use, reducing grip and therefore accuracy and speed.

Ball and Socket Adjustment Mechanism - All three axes are set at once - horizontal, vertical, and twist. Adjustment is quick, easy, and won't shake loose under vibration. The simplicity of this frame design reduces machine weight significantly.

Independent wheel speed controls - Each wheel's speed is set independently for full adjustability of pitch speed and break, something not possible with 1 wheel or arm style machines. Wheel speed is shown directly on the control box - unlike other manufacturers, there's no need to use charts to set the pitch speed.

Fast, Easy Leg Installation - Legs easily slide into the sockets on the machine base and spring loaded buttons lock them in place. Baseball and softball legs can be swapped in just seconds.

Throws any pitch from any angle - A thrown ball curves in the direction of its spin. The faster the spin, the more it curves. Fastballs have backspin, which cause them to rise, or at least fall slower than they otherwise would. Sinkers and curves have topspin, causing them to drop.
