Lobster Sports has been around since the 70’s. The company became a popular manufacturer of high-quality portable tennis machines. Many players including me, loved their portable, reliable and advanced tennis ball machines. In this article, I reviewed different machine models that will help you decide which Lobster Sports tennis ball machine to choose.
Lobster Tennis Ball Machine Review 2017
Lobster Sports has two types of tennis ball machines, the battery operated machines and the electric machines. First, I will show your their battery operated and portable tennis ball machine models which is the Elite series.
The Elite Series
|My Pick: Lobster Elite Two
Good for beginners and advanced players that looking for a portable tennis ball machine that has many advanced features and will not break the bank.
Top 3 Recommendation
Lobster Elite 1 vs 2 vs 3
As you can see in the table above, these 3 machines have the same design and look, weighs the same and almost have the same features except for their oscillation. Elite One only has random horizontal, Elite Two has random horizontal and random vertical, while the Elite Three also has random horizontal, random vertical and an added two-line oscillation feature.
My opinion is the Lobster Elite Two has the upper edge among these three machines because of it has more features than the Elite One and it is cheaper than the Elite Three.
The Elite Grand Series
The Lobster Elite Grand series are made for those players that are looking for more cutting edge features and advanced drills. People who usually bought these machines are those who want to take their game to the next level. If the features of Lobster Elite series is not enough for you then you may take a look at the Elite Grand series.
My Pick: Lobster Elite Grand Five
Pre-loaded drills, programmable drills, feature packed tennis ball machine that is easy to carry around.
Lobster Elite Grand Four, Five and Five Limited Edition
Phenom Electric Club Series Machines
The Lobster Phenom lineup is innovative and their most advanced tennis ball machines. These machines uses electricity to power up while the Elite series uses batteries. The Phenoms are also bigger and weighs twice as the Elites. These machines are aimed to those who loved challenges, for those who take their game more seriously and considering going pro.
My Pick: Lobster Phenom 2
The most advanced tennis ball machine. Fully customizable to suit your play style.
Lobster sports is pretty well known in the tennis industry. Many users loved the portability, features and reasonable pricing of their tennis ball machines. If you’re a total beginner I suggest get the Elite Two, but if you have the budget and want to take your game to the next level I suggest get either any of the Grand Series or the Phenom Electric Series. Hope that I helped you choosing your worthy investment!
