We absolutely love our Pocket Radar. We’ve had it for just over 2 months now. There’s a slight learning curve at the beginning, but we’ve found that using it in the “Constant” mode is the easiest and best to work with. It’s very accurate, we’ve compared it with other, more expensive radar guns and most of the time, it’s spot on. While I don’t think Pocket Radar is saying it’s replacing those high dollar radar guns the pros use, this is an absolute excellent alternative for about ¼ of the price. We don’t have a reason to buy anything else, the Ball Coach Pocket Radar does everything we need it to as a travel club team. It works in game situations, practice and especially at the batting cage. We like to dial machines in at the cage to throw 3 MPH more than the anticipated top pitcher of the weekend. This allows us to get precise. The Pocket Radar lives in the coach’s bag now, it’s with our coaches anytime on a practice or game field. We love it so much, it’s one of our few Preferred Products listed on our team website: https://azwarriors.com/preferred-products
Love my Ball Coach! Very accurate and consistent. The Smart Coach looks even better and is #1 on my gadget wishlist to better help my students.
I don’t believe I would have been as successful as I have been nor would I have gotten my head coaching job without the use of the Ball Coach Radar. It’s has been a great all around tool for me personally; recruiting, pitching and hitting. As an instructor only it helped establish key points on hitting and pitching theories. Just using it for the exit speed can help get players to understand the importance of good mechanics.
The ball coach has been a tremendous aide to our High School baseball program. It allows us to easily track pitchers velocity and have actual data when players are tiring. At practice is helps us fix swings by checking exit speeds. I have used the ball coach when scouting. Standing between two pro scouts with much more expensive equipment, my ball coach consistently gave me the same reading as their devices. Customer service was also very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend this product for all baseball programs.
The Ball Coach radar is the best tool I've purchased over my years of coaching. I use it daily. In the past I'd carry around a giant radar gun around scouting and to practice. I use my radar gun to motivate my athletes during their pull down phase of long toss, for bullpens, and in the batting cages to measure exit velocity. Kids love the competition. Being able to fit a radar gun in my pocket is extremely convenient. I knew my Ball Coach was legit when I tested it up against a Stalker Pro 2 Radar Gun on a scouting trip. It was consistently measuring the same reading. I've already recommended this tool for many coaches and will continue to do so in the future. I feel like I've hit a Grand Slam with this purchase!
