Features & Benefits
If The Machine You’re Considering Doesn’t Match Up
Then You’re Buying Old Technology
State of the Art Internal Oscillation - Ball Direction is Hidden
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine does not move when it shoots a ball The Pro 2 Random Mode is therefore as close to hitting with a real player as possible. The inside of the machine has black powder-coated metal-work which provides durability. This makes each shot even less predictable as it does not reflect light. This design provides the benefit of the machine being able to execute changes in ball direction faster than other machines.
Free Slimline All-Function Remote Included in the Price
Others charge extra for the remote control or require you to use only a smartphone to control the machine, which are heavy, more cumbersome to use than our direct-touch remote and generally just a pain to use with a tennis ball machine (unlock the device, click the app, click the proper button, then get interrupted by tweets, chirps, emails, phone calls, texts, facebook, instagram, not to mention then you drop it and you crack the screen!).
4-Line x 20 Character Backlit LCD Display
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine can also be controlled from the membrane touch panel. The 4×20 character backlit LCD display shows the settings, programs, battery life and diagnostic information. Much better than many other legacy machines that only have a 2-digit or even no display.
Ultimate Portability & Lightest in its Class
The External Battery Pack and AC Power-Only Models weigh 40 lbs so they are easy to lift. The External Battery Pack model has the advantage of allowing you to leave the machine in the car and only bring in the battery to charge. This takes up less space. You can replace the battery in an instant with with the External Battery Pack model as you do not have to take apart the machine.
To move the Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine you only need to reverse the hopper over the machine body, extend the handle from underneath the machine and pull it like luggage. The handle neatly retracts under the machine during storage. You can even move the Pro 2 with the Carry Case or Dust Cover on the machine.
Unique Snooze Mode - Saves Battery Power & More
This allows you to save battery power while and also makes the machine quieter while you pick up balls or someone comes over to talk your ear off while you are trying to practice with your machine.
Pre-Programmed Drills - So You Don't Have To!
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine Pre-Programmed Drills include Single-Line & Two-Line Drill (Narrow, Medium & Wide) and Horizontal Oscillation Drill (Medium & Wide). All of these drills can be combined Verical Oscillation to provide random play. In addition these drills can be performed in horizontal or lob mode, which has 200 elevation settings. You can choose various speeds, spin and interval between balls for any of the drills. Other machines which claim to be able to be programmed only allow 6 balls to be programmed, after which the cycle repeats itself so you will quickly know where to run, not to mention their machine will even rotate to point you in the right direction! Why pay more for that? It’s hardly a player mode anywhere comparable to the Spinfire Pro 2.
– All settings can be changed on the fly while the balls are shooting out or while the tennis ball machine is paused.
See the video above for explanations of these various programs.
2-15 Second Ball Intervals - Widest Range Of Any Machine
The wide range of interval between balls accommodates beginners to advanced players. The 15 second interval can be convenient where there are 2 players practising with machine, such as one on the forehand side and one on the backhand side. In addition, this long interval allows someone to serve a ball to you in between the machine throwing a ball. No other machine has this range of ball interval. Note that the fastest that a professional player can return a ball is about 2.7 seconds so a 2 second interval is more than adequate.

10 Levels each of Topsin & Backspin Including Extreme Spin
The 10 Levels of topspin & backspin will tax even the most advanced player as the levels go up to extreme.
Varying Width & Depth of Ball Shots Including Lob Settings
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine throwing wheel mechanism can oscillate both vertically and horizontally. This provides shots of varying depth and width over the court. These movements can be turned on individually or together thereby providing completely random play. The elevation control allows you to create lob style shots or anywhere in between. This can be used in conjunction with any pre-programmed drill or setting.
Large Capacity 200-Ball Hopper - Hit More Before Ball Pick Up
The Spinfire’s 200-ball hopper is quick to install when at the court and fits over the body when in storage. This capacity is higher than most other tennis ball machines. This allows you to practice hitting balls longer before you need to pick them up.
Automatic Self-Centering On Start-Up So You Don't Have to
On many tennis ball machines when it is turned on the throwing wheels point to the last location they were on previous shut-down. This requires you to manually center them yourself. The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine automatically centers on start-up thus saving you time. Then, like any machine, all you need to do is to fire a couple balls to make sure you have aligned it properly along the centreline of the court.
Automatic Last Settings Memory Feature
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine recalls the last settings using for interval, speed, spin and elevation each time you turn on the machine. After spending time learning your favorite settings and inputting them into the machine, it is nice to know you do not have to re-enter them.
Automatic & Exclusive Ball Feeder Safety Feature
When the Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine does not detect a ball in about 30 seconds it turns off the feed more. This is to take care of the situation where you forget to turn off the ball feeder while picking up balls because you think all the balls have dropped and then one that was stuck finally drops and shoots out. It is not fun to get hit in the head by a tennis ball at 80mph! This feature is unique to the Spinfire Pro 2.
Works With Pressureless, Pressurized & Kids Tennis Balls
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine is designed to work with both pressureless tennis balls and pressurized tennis balls. our SetPoint Premium Pressurless Tennis Balls save you money over the long run and maintain their consistency. The only balls that cannot be used are the children’s red-dot as it is too large to fit through the throwing wheels or foam balls.
Universal World-Wide Approved Charger & AC Adapter
Our power supplies (Standard Charger, Fast Charger and AC Adapter) are 100-240VAC & 50/60HZ 250VA which means they will work anywhere in the world as long as you add on the inexpensive plug that converts the standard US plug. Also, they have all worldwide electrical approvals unlike some of our competitors from overseas whose power supplies are not even approved for use in the US. Call for details so we can warn you of possible fire hazards with their products.
3-8 Hour Play Time on Battery - Unlimited on AC
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine is supplied with a 20 Amp-Hour battery and therefore will last from about 3-8 hours depending on the settings used.
Top Quality Extreme Grip Ball Propulsion
The Spinfire Pro 2 Tennis Ball Machine features extreme grip counter-rotating throwing wheels which are the most effective method of ball propulsion. This allows allows the machine to remain silent and effectively produce 10 levels each of topspin and backsplin/slice. You can also choose no spin at all.
No Extra Charge for External Battery Option
Unlike the competion we don’t charge extra for our External Battery Pack Option which many prefer over the Internal Battery. However, even if you order the external battery model you can still convert it at a later date to the internal battery model yourself with our handy video instructions.
Note that the Spinfire Pro 2 is stable even without the Internal Battery, unlike some of our competitors which require you to place a weight inside the machine so it does not move.
