Texas Bandits

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 24, 2014
We use this today to help the team in performance drills from hitting, pitching, and throws from outfield. It is also use to have fun with drills. It is a team favorite. Thanks for the design and durability.
Pros: Great tool for performance or even to have fun with drills
Cons: I wish I had purchased the ball coach model...

Love the Pocket Radar!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on November 18, 2013
What I love most about the Pocket Radar is it's convenient size. I had a bigger "pistol" radar gun, but it was so bulky and conspicuous, that I stopped taking it to games. With the Pocket Radar, many people think I'm using my cell phone. I can't tell you how many times people ask me what app I am using to record the pitching speeds.
Pros: Accurate, easy to use, portable
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Best Radar for Training

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on November 5, 2013
I have used radar guns in baseball training for pitching and hitting for a long time and this is the best unit ever. It only weighs a few ounces and is accurate as any other out there. It does trigger different so you have to read the instructions or you won't know what you are doing, but it is a small price to pay for the convenience. The only downside is the 120 feet of range is not long enough to sit in the stands for scouting. If you want a long range scouting gun this is not it. If you want a great radar for use in training and coaching this is the best one out there.
Pros: Fits in your Pocket
Cons: Not for Scouting...
Would recommend: Yes

Really does not work

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 4, 2013
I use radar for baseball. I have a Stalker, and have owned several others. I am sorry to say this is the worst, of five that I have owned. Does not always pickup speed, you must position carefully (not something I do with Stalker). When it works, it reads consistently low.
Pros: Simple
Cons: Does not work, highly inaccurate, inconsistent...

Better than expected

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 13, 2013
I've had this device for about 14 months...to say that it has exceeded my expectation is an understatement. I compared its accuracy to a much more expensive gun; a friend of mine and I simultaneously tracked pitch speed...in each and every instance, we were pretty much dead on - he paid nearly $700 for his! Obviously this gun is easy to carry and just as easy to point-and-shoot to use. I think that, more than anything else, the thing that has impressed me is that I can use it from the stands and still get accurate reading...just didn't expect this level of quality in such a small package. I'm trying to be unbiased here and list some things that I don't really like about it, too. But to be honest, there just isn't much. Maybe the 2x the price of a Bushnell?...even at that, I feel it's more than worth that difference in portability alone. I highly recommend the Pocket Radar to anyone (everyone?) who'll listen.
Pros: accuracy, portability, ease of use, range
Cons: ...tough to say......
Would recommend: Yes

Ready To Use Immediately

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on September 17, 2012
Very good product. I received my Pocket Radar on Thursday, and used it immediately at a softball tournament. The readings seemed accurate and were consistent. The device fits easily into my pocket which makes it very convenient. People do not realize it is a radar device, they think that I am just taking a picture.
Pros: Size, Consistency of readings
Cons: The timing of pressing the button takes a little getting used to....

Pocket Radar is a Great Device!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on September 15, 2012
For a device so small and simple to use, I am very impressed with the capability and reliability of the Pocket Rader. I bought the device to measure the speed of my 13 year old daughter's serve (tennis) and monitor her progress over time. I have found the device to be very effective in doing so. My daughter has also found the device to be a great learning tool, in that now she can relate speed to the "feel" of the serve. In other words, if she uses more racquet speed, drives more with the legs, uses more body rotation.. she sees her serve speed jump. The result has been such that she is improving her technique and using her body more effectively. Bottom line, while I bought this to check her serve speed, I am finding it to provide her with valuable self-learning....

Consumer

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, OR Written on August 5, 2012
After reading reviews, I decided this is just what I wanted for use at the
Reno Air Races.
The unit arrived within a few days and was packaged much like my Omega Speedmaster watch...very nice.
It was a very solid little instrument. Batteries in and I was ready....except it did not "come on"...changed batteries..nothing.
I had read some reviews that suggested the customer service was exceptional, so I guessed I would find out !
When I called Pocketradar in Santa Rosa, a gentleman by the name of Chris Stewart answered. He was very apologetic and asked me to do a very simple diagnostic....which confirmed a problem.
He again apologized and advised he would get a new unit in the mail immediately......and with it would be return packaging for the defective unit.
Within a day or two, a new unit arrived......and worked perfectly and just as advertised !!
Not only did they quickly resolve the problem, but followed it up with an email, explaining exactly what the problem was with the first unit...which was not only very nice to know, but really tended to increase my feeling that this was truly a quality product.
(a wire in the battery compartment was the problem)
Pocketradar is certainly a very pleasant and conscientious company to do business with....
(and as it turned out, Chris Stewart, the gentleman that helped me....is the President of the company !!!!)
Pros: quality product, customer service A+...
Would recommend: Yes

I can't believe the 5-star reviews on this product -

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 4, 2012
- until it became apparent that a lot of those reviews are placed by shills for the company. There are 5-star reviews out there from people who admit to not owning, or even having used, the product! Just having spoken with the owner. My advice is to sort through reviews judiciously before making a purchase decision.

My experience with this product was negative. I agree with other reviewers to say that you can't get consistent, reliable readings on baseballs. To the comments saying there's a 'trick' to it, I say, for $200 it should be easy to use, if not foolproof. My $200 Droid works every way the same time. That's what these guys need to shoot for. Good idea, but back to the drawing board.
Cons: Inaccurate, ineffective, expensive...
Would recommend: No
