Spinshot Plus-2 vs Spinfire Pro 2

The Plus-2 is the top of the range ball machine from Spinshot and incorporates all the features available in their lower spec models to give the user the option of using not only the popular advanced features of random horizontal and vertical oscillation and two line drill but also the ability to design 12 different six-shot drills. These features are combined with the original 120-ball hopper, top speed of 110 km/h, 2-3 hour playtime, option of an internal battery or AC power and 15-hour charge time.

The option to design one’s own drills is something the Spinfire range of machines is yet to offer, but that shouldn’t take away from its ability to outperform almost all other machines in the market with its 200-ball capacity, 130 km/h top speed, 3-8 hours of playtime, option of three different power sources, internal oscillation and 11-hour charge time. This is an incredibly popular machine and one that will will appeal to advanced players looking for the extra challenges it offers and likewise by coaches who find the extra court time and power options most beneficial.

Top Speed Top speed possible when there is no spin. 110 km/h 130 km/h
Slowest Speed Slowest speed possible. 30 km/h 32 km/h
Interval The min and max time possible between balls being fired. 2-10 seconds 2-15 seconds
Spin Whether the machine is capable of producing topspin and slice.
Elevation Ability to raise and lower the vertical angle of the delivery.
Lobs Ability to offer smashing practice.
Horizontal Oscillation Ability to fire balls randomly anywhere within the horizontal span of the court (no variation in depth).
Vertical Oscillation Ability to offer random variation in depth to allow for practicing of short and deep balls.
Triple Oscillation Ability to turn both horizontal oscillation and vertical oscillation on at the same time, to allow for random width and depth balls.
Internal Oscillation Internal oscillation provides more disguised deliveries as the mechanical movements happen inside the machine making them harder to see by the player. Machines with external oscillation telegraph where the delivery will be made, making them more predictable.
LCD Display A screen on the control panel to allow easy adjustments to the settings.
Electric Option Can the machine be run directly from an AC power point, rather than via a battery? Running off AC can eliminate the headaches associated with batteries, charging them and replacing them when necessary.
Battery Can the machine be run off a battery?
Battery Life The min and max play time possible when using the battery. 2-3 hours 3-8 hours
Battery size 7 A/h 20 A/h
Charge Time Amount of time required to charge a flat battery using the standard charger. 12 hours 11 hours
Fast Charger Can a fast charger be purchased to reduce the charging time? Optional Optional
Ball Capacity The total number of balls that can fit into the hopper. As a general rule, we feel 150 is the minimum we would recommend. 120 200
Portable Has wheels and a handle to allow easy movement to and from the tennis courts (from the back of a car).
Weight The weight of the machine without tennis balls installed. Note, the Spinfire Pro 2 can be purchased with an external battery, so 18 kg represents the weight of the machine only without a battery inside. 19 kg 18 kg
Remote Does the machine offer a remote control to allow easy settings adjustments from the other end of the court? Note, all remotes are different, including the number of buttons and functions each can supply, so look for a photo of the remote you are considering to understand its features. Also, Tennis Tutor in Australia does not offer a remote control, but this may be possible to purchase in other parts of the world. Mobile phone app
2 Line Drill This is a drill which shoots one ball to the forehand, followed by a ball to the backhand, and it repeats endlessly. It will keep you running from side to side until you can take it no longer. Some machines offer this in just WIDE and NARROW, while others offer WIDE, MEDIUM and NARROW for a bit more flexibility. It's also a great drill to use when two players are practising together with a ball machine, as it will alternate firing a ball between each player.
Pre-loaded Drills Practice drills designed to represent real match situations
Optional Spare Battery A spare battery is great for coaches or those heavy users who don't always have time to charge their battery between sessions, or may want even more play time than the standard minimum that each machine can provide.
Heavy Duty Battery
Optional Storage Cover These are great for protecting your machine from dust and debris, but we do not recommend you leave them out on court.
Warranty This is the standard manufacturer's warranty. Some machines do have the option to upgrade their warranty to up to 5 years for an additional fee. 2 Years 2 Years (Optional 5 years)
