Pickleball Tutor PLUS w/ 50 FREE BALLS!
I placed a number of orders with Pickleball Depot and my orders were filled promptly, and arrived on the date or prior to the arrival date as promised. All orders were filled exactly as ordered. I will purchase from them again.
Superb!!! The PB Tutor Plus is an excellent drill ‘partner,’ teacher, etc. Love its versatility re ball speed, interval, spins…the remote is a must for single users. And the service provided by the Depot, Leah & Brent was terrific. Mine came with no remote in the box and within a day, Leah sent me a remote. Very, very satisfied customer…One suggestion is to find a way to do the same extended warranty purchase that is offered in the US. Thanks, don
I love the machine, still understanding all of the drill set ups, from their online information.
Will be incorporating into teaching session and my practice.
Only down side is Canada Post shipping is terrible, unit basically at the Post Office for 4 days without any notice, ended up going to pick it up.
Had problem with one motor. Called depot who got technical service to call me from California. Got new motor within 3 days. Impressive California to Nova Scotia
Lots of stuff

The best performing balls for these machines are harder balls such as the Core outdoor balls or Franklin outdoor balls. With these balls being harder than other balls, such as the Penn or Onix balls, they will produce the best results for ball ejection, speed, and ball drive. If using indoor balls, the speed and projection height will be slightly slower and lower than a harder ball and may occasionally get stuck in the ball hopper.
Note: if using brand new outdoor balls that still have a slick/waxy surface these balls may throw at an inconsistent rate vs. older scuffed up balls. T his slick film makes it harder for the wheels to grab the balls consistently and the film can also transfer onto the surface of the wheels. Older, used balls will always produce the best results and throw at a more even consistent rate than brand new balls.
