As an Official Partner of Baseball Factory, the Pocket Radar team was thrilled to participate in the Under Armour All-American baseball game at Wrigley Field July 22, 2019. We were able to capture some great clips with the new Smart Coach Radar and companion app during batting practice and in the bullpens during the game. We even had the Smart Display set up behind home plate capturing pitch velocities during the game.
In Part 3 of his "Radar Gun Fun" series, Zac Morain (now with Driveline Baseball) independently compares the Smart Coach Radar with companion app to the higher cost radar guns and other lower cost/performing alternatives. Check out the fantastic article that includes visual charts and graphs from his tests, and make sure to also check out Part 1 and Part 2 for more detailed information about the history of radar and some of the common problems people run into when using radar guns.

Great product and appreciated the buy back offer on the ball coach!
We Are not family or friends of anyone at Pocket Radar and have been using Pocket Radar since 2020 and am 💯 % satisfied. First off their customer service is 10/10. Whenever I have had a question about my pocket radar including accuracy or functionality, the customer service Personnel have immediately picked up my phone call and responded to me. We use our Pocket Radar for two baseball players one who is now playing in college and the other who is a junior/17u. We use the devices for both pitching and hitting to measure throwing velocity as well as exit velocity. The best example I can cite is that my son went to a college showcase and we had a question about the velocity being read on his fastball by the college coaching staff. The reason why we were concerned is because the person operating the Pocket Radar had it angled towards the ground and he was moving it as the pitch was being released. I contacted Pocket Radar and Chris Stewart the president and CEO got on the phone which was surprising to me and told me to send him video of my sons pitching which I had available and he would analyze it to see if the readings that the Pocket Radar was displaying were accurate. To have a CEO take the time to work directly with a customer is a level of service that is in rarefied air. Clearly this company is operating at an extremely high level with a tremendous product that does not break and customer service that is outstanding. I highly recommend purchasing Pocket Radar to anybody as we are 100% satisfied.
I've owned a pocket radar since 2015. It's been fantastic! When the opportunity arose to upgrade to the latest model it was an absolute no-brainer! Great product, evolutionary and revolutionary product, easy company to do business with.
The radar itself is great - accurate, handy, reliable. I also consider the app part of the product. Coupled with the app, this is an unbeatable package for parents of pitchers. I would only recommend the Smart Coach + the app.
We have a few other tools, but the Smart Radar is really the only tool you need. We screen cast the app to a TV to give our athletes instant visibility. Well worth the spend.
