Overview

Introducing Spinfire Pro 2 (version 2)

We’ve taken the best all-round ball machine and made it even better.

Tennis ball machines are a fantastic way to practice and improve your game, regardless of your skill level. The Spinfire Pro 2 makes it easy to practice a wide range of shots, test yourself with a variety of paces, spins and elevations, and build your mobility and fitness with practice drills.

With a number of improvements over the original version, the Spinfire Pro 2 (v2) offers things you’d normally only find on a much more expensive machine. It includes internal movement, an easy-to-use control panel and remote control, and 150-ball capacity – all wrapped up in an extremely stylish and compact design.

Here’s what makes it even better

Some of the key upgrades include:

Improved ball variations:
  • The ‘Horizontal Oscillation’ function has been replaced with ‘Horizontal Random’, so it randomly selects spots across the court rather than sweeping from side to side
  • The ‘Vertical Oscillation’ function has been replaced with ‘Vertical Random’, so it randomly selects the longest or shortest points rather than sweeping up and down
  • ‘Horizontal Random’ now includes a ‘narrow’ option, rather than just ‘wide’ or ‘medium’
Improved portability and practicality:
  • More compact design with an extra handle at the top of the mouth when the hopper (ball basket) is inverted
  • Larger transport wheels with a full axle through the body for added stability and strength
  • A slot has been added to store the remote control
Improved reliability and durability:
  • All electronic components have been upgraded
  • Streamlined design, including internal cabling & battery brace

Key features and benefits

Internal movement

Unlike most ball machines, which change the direction of the ball by moving the whole machine from side to side, the Spinfire Pro 2 moves internally. This allows for faster re-direction and makes shots less predictable. The internal parts are black to further disguise shot direction.

Random modes

With both horizontal and vertical random modes, balls can be delivered across the full width of the singles court with depth variation. The Spinfire Pro 2 can be set to deliver the same trajectory over and over or a variety of random trajectories. ‘Horizontal Random’ can be set to deliver balls across a narrow, medium or wide area. ‘Vertical Random’ delivers short or long balls in a random order. Both ‘Horizontal Random’ and ‘Vertical Random’ can be combined for a very realistic playing pattern.

Two-line drills

This feature delivers alternating forehands and backhands. It can be set to ‘wide’, ‘medium’ or ‘narrow’ to vary the degree of difficulty. The ‘wide’ setting makes you run from side to side, ‘narrow’ allows you to remain in the middle of the court, while ‘medium’ is between the two. You can also set the timing between each ball.

Extreme topspin and slice capability

Using counter rotating wheels, the Spinfire Pro 2 operates very quietly and can generate maximum topspin and slice if desired.

Remote control

All functions can be controlled remotely, allowing the player to start or pause the machine and change functions without leaving their side of the court.

Easy portability

Compact and lightweight, the Spinfire Pro 2 fits in the trunk of most cars. The hopper (ball basket) can be reversed to neatly cover the machine, and solid wheels and an extendable handle allow you to pull or push it almost anywhere.

Three power options

You can choose to have a built-in or external battery pack, or plug-in AC power option – or any combination of the three. The external battery pack makes the machine much lighter, allowing you to leave it in the car and just bring the battery inside for charging. A fast charger is also available, cutting the charging time from 11 hours to 3–4 hours. If your court has easy access to a power point, you may prefer the plug-in AC power option.

Warranty

The Spinfire Pro 2 machine is covered by an outstanding 2-year warranty on parts and labour, and the battery has a 6-month warranty.

    I have been using the previous version of Spinfire pro 2 for 15 months now. The counter has 40500 registered ball launches so the machine has been used a bit. The external battery is still working fine. There are occasional hiccups such as the machine suddenly starts shooting at lowest interval (not registering balls) for a few consecutive shots. I haven’t spent much time calibrating this because it’s not all bad having a bit more randomness in the drills. Another intermittent problem is that the machine don’t start or shuts down without apparent reason. This doesn’t happen every day and the solution seems to be to kick the machine. Something must be lose inside and can probably be fixed with a quick service.

    I’m having great fun with this machine and would buy it again today without hesitation.

  2. Yong (verified owner)

    Recently bought Pro2 – it just works perfectly and does everything it’s advertised to do. It is no hype and has been living up to all my expectations: portable, durable and versatile feeds.

    Looking forward to using this machine to improce my tennis skills!

    Recently acquired Spinfire Pro 2 (v2) Ball Machine, having owned the previous version for a few years.

    I had some problems with the previous version and Spinfire was incredibly supportive in finding a satisfactory resolution.

    The latest version has a number of improvements, it’s lighter, more maneuverable and all of the functions work better. the remote control seems to work from a longer distance. It’s much easier to click through the various menu options and so far, the reliability is excellent.

    This is the BEST portable ball machine on the market ( I have used several, over the years ) and most importantly, is supported by a manufacturer that genuinely cares that customers have a satisfactory experience with their product.

    In these days, where customer service can be thin on the ground, having this kind of support is invaluable.

    I live in Costa Rica, so ensuring good service was the first priority when deciding which new machine to order replacing the old red machine. Spinfire Australia corresponded with me for many months answering every question I had. Finally we took the leap and ordered. A few weeks later our new Spinfire v2 arrived. A few teething problems arose, but Spinfire dealt with each issue immediately and extremely professionally, even airlifting parts to a brand new customer half the globe away. The machine works fantastically, and I now have many friends who cannot wait to get in line to use it. Not often we have lines in the jungle here, but this machine is almost as inspiring as the truly world-calibre service we’ve receive from Spinfire.

    I have had the Spinfire Pro 2 ver. 1 and now I have the Spinfire Pro 2 ver 2. I think the changes that were made are really good. With the version 1 when I would roll it to or from the court and I might hit some uneven ground it had a tendency to tip. This version is solid, the larger wheels have made a big difference. Also this version is more compact. These in themselves don’t change the strength of the machine when in use but transporting to and from a court is part of the experience and is also very important. The addition of a card holder for the remote is nice but not as impactful as are the wheels and geometry. I do have a suggestion for Spinfire Sport. Having an external battery that is fairly heavy is problematic. It’s great to have an external but when you are transporting to and from a court where do you put the battery. For me, I have a rolling duffle bag. It does work OK in there. I am thinking that on version 3 could you add a place to slide the external battery into on the outside of the plastic molding of the product. A place to have easy access for insertion and connection to power and to also have easy removal to then carry inside to be recharged. My duffle bag is a soft good and will break down. I like my duffle bag. I want all things to work in tandem.
    I love the product – keep innovating.

    My 1st Spinfire machine is new Pro2 V2 and I’m very pleased with it’s quality and most important with communication with Spinfire customer service. They cover me from time when I was thinking about buying tennis ball machine until suplyer send me wrong version (old one) and even now when I have every question about how machine is working. So tennis machine is very good but customer service is not 5 star but 10 star rating.

    Great tennis ball machine

    Spinfire 2 compared with new Spinfire 2 v2

    From a practical point of view, the larger wheels and more compact design make a huge difference when compared with the previous model.  Simply just much easier to move around and wheel over more uneven terrain and less stress on the handle. The more rectangular type design as opposed to the previous design which due to the 200 ball hopper was a little bit rounded out at the edges is just more manageable.

    Initially fired 7000 or so balls and only 2 ball jams. So the Carousel design works significantly better. The consistency of balls when fired is greatly improved and I’m pretty sure they’re coming faster or rather the speed at which it’s ejecting the balls is faster than my 2 machine was. 

    Almost perfect feeding of balls, meaning consistency of interval and almost no times where if you’ve chosen 1 of the 3 drills you get balls that shoot to one side 3 or more times in a row at the exact same point before oscillating to a different side or point on the same side of the court.

    With the previous machine obviously, once you got down to the last 10 or so balls intervals would become very varied. And often if you just waited not all the balls would have fired. Now when they stop firing pretty much always no balls left and maybe only some inconsistency in the last few balls just because there may be a gap in the carousel.

    Back Panel redesign is simply just more convenient. The power switch and connector for the external battery are just more convenient. I never did and still don’t really use the back panel controls very much unless I need to get into the hidden settings. However, if you do use it, it’s a cleaner layout and easier to navigate.

    I’m a little annoyed that this didn’t occur to me before but when initially setting up the machine if you’re firing the balls in the center of the back of the court, you can much more easily align the machine to fire straight if you leave the handle extended whilst you align the wheel with the centre point. It simply helps act as a guide and it’s simple maths that like with bullets or arrows the further away they get shot, the greater the effect one degree off-axis has on where they end up.

    I believe the consistency and accuracy have really improved with the v2.

    Having the narrow, medium, and wide oscillation is good. I could never understand why there wasn’t a narrow setting. Overall though I think the variation is more random and just simply better.

    In general, it’s a much better design, and the new carousel, wheels, placement of the XLR connector, power switch, and LCD panel are smart and logical design improvements.

    Internal oscillation, 2 types of external battery and light, easy to use remote.

    Good before, but even better now.

  9. Carolyn Waddington

    Great service and advice on purchase and the machine came so quickly. It is the perfect machine for our whole family. It is so easy to use, The remote has excellent range and the drills are fantastic. The machine suits from a beginner through to an advanced player due to the high range of settings. I am so happy that we bought this and would recommend this machine to anyone who is looking to improve their game and fitness. I would recommend that you purchase the starter set with the balls, tube to pick up the balls and the ball holder.

  10. Peter Wong

    Pro: Great machine, easy to use. I started with 72 balls but found myself picking up balls all the time. So I filled it up with 144 balls.
    Con: The wheels are very small, hard to move around uneven surfaces/ thick grass. I had to mount it to a hand trolley from Bunnings to help moving it around.

    Note from Spinifre: This review is of the old v1 machine. The new v2 model was launched on the 1st Oct 2020 which has larger transport wheels for easier movement over uneven surfaces and thick grass.
