The RevFire 12in Softball Package is the spin metering tool used in the NFCA Recruiting Camps. Pitchers respond well to instant objective feedback. With the RevFire Softball Package they can more quickly learn techniques that produce the best breaking ball, sinker, or rise ball. Rather than trying to overpower the ball to impress a radar gun pointed at them, the pitchers focus on the proper release mechanics required to achieve strong rotation. They gain an awareness of spin and a motivation to improve their stats relative to their peers. Effective breaking ball pitchers can provide hard RevFire metrics to college and professional recruiters. Coaches can evaluate pitching ability and technique with hard numbers, gain new insight into training methods, identify pitchers whose spin fades as they tire, and see who's breaking ball is 'on' in the bullpen. The fact that the RevFire Spin Metering Tool does not have to be held in line with the pitch and pointed at the pitcher changes the dynamics of pitching instruction. Subtle speed and spin measurement can be done by the coach out of the line of sight of the pitcher. A coach can tell his pitcher that her riseball, for example, can't be part of her game time repertoire until the spin rate is increased from 16 RPS to 23 RPS. The Rev Fire also adds a powerful new dimension to pitching prospect evaluation.
The RevFire 12 inch Softball Package includes a sports bag that holds up to 3 RevFire softballs and has a protective compartment for the monitor. The 12" optic yellow RevFire balls are official size and weight poly-core balls with premium leather, a raised seam construction, and red and black stitching. The softballs have a grippable surface feel which many pitchers expect. The Rev-Fire monitor displays speed in MPH and spin in revolutions per second (RPS) and can be used with RevFire baseballs and softballs. The monitor's two AA batteries (included) will provide many hours of use and may require replacement only once a season when the low battery indicator appears. RevFire balls are not for hitting or game play.
