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.

    The Spinball Pro 2 tennis ball machine is wonderful. My son uses it every afternoon and his tennis skills have improved dramatically. It does the job and so much more.

  4. Anonymous

    Excellent machine, great design, relatively easy to carry and move around. Lots of preset functions for drills and different types of feeds. Perfect for any player at any skill level.

    I have had the Spinfire Pro 2 for 1 year and it works really well. I got it just starting out in tennis last year when I realized I needed a lot of repetition to get my shots right. The machine doesn’t teach you, but it does everything else.

    It’s portable enough to put in the trunk of the car (upright) and it has a luggage handle for rolling, but it’s also possible to pick it up without too much trouble. It’s not loud, so I can use it early in the morning when the courts are empty. The remote is perfect to start and stop the ball delivery as needed from across the court (I marked mine with an extra bump on the ‘Pause’ button so it’s easy to find tactilely). I have the external battery pack, which I keep plugged in at home between uses; the battery life is longer than I can play at once, but if you wanted to use it for multiple players, one battery likely could power the machine for 8 hours, and would take about 12 hours to recharge (I estimate). The balls have only gotten stuck in the hopper feeder about 1 per 10,000 deliveries, and only when the balls have gotten damp in puddles and so weigh a bit more than usual all massed together in the hopper (I load 2 gross at a time and try to hit about 4 loads a session over an hour). It’s easy to clear a jam if there ever is one. The machine can send the ball where you want it every time, and you have control of spin, elevation, speed, and rate of delivery. You can have drills alternating directions or random delivery short/long and/or left/right, your choice on how to control it.

    I’m told the balls are washable and machine-dryable but haven’t had to do that. They seem very durable. Although they are solid, I can’t the difference between the Spinfire balls and regular tennis balls in the play. The haven’t worn out or lost their fuzz over 2 seasons. The machine itself seems durable and well put-together. Like other reviewers I also had very prompt and proactive customer service contact in making the purchase and receiving the delivery. This is a great way to practice exactly what you want to work on over and over, whether baseline returns, volleys or overheads, plus at a huge choice in speed and spin. I know I make more hits by far with this machine per hour than in any other way, and I really like being in control of how and when I practice. The Spinfire is always ready when I am.

    Easy to move around and very easy to operate. We use it 3-4 times a week at home.

  7. Matthew Foo

    The SpinFire is a fantastic ball machine. My son and I are having so much fun using it. Fantastic purchase and would recommend it for anyone looking for a ball machine.

  8. Ian Myles

    Our members love the machine.

  9. Julian Swinstead

    I bought this machine a week after a total knee replacement knowing that I would not get to use it for a while. Then Covid19 messed up our club play (all over 70 years). So I took the Spinfire to a back court with two mates. Setting the machine on WIDE each mate got alternating practice. Using the ball pickup devices no-one but i touched the balls. The practising mates stayed four metres apart and I sat next to the machine at the other end learning how to use it. It has been sensational and safe. All get a turn and love it. I am looking forward to my turn using it.

    I bought a spinfire 2 pro back in 2012. Happy to say the machine is still going and has been great. I am not a regular player though, so it gets used in fits and starts.
    It has needing some spare parts. First, the adapter died. I converted with an adapter kit to AC power (I had an early model that had a slow charger and no AC). Converting to AC has worked well, as I have power near by to the court. It used to be really annoying to have the battery go flat and it took a day to charge. Now I am replacing the wheels that shoot out the balls. These wear out eventually. So the machine is not cheap to buy, and spare parts will be needed, but really it has been a good run given it’s age. Still recommend it if it will get used.
