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

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+...

Incredible Tool

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 8, 2012
As a professional stuntman I find the Pocket Radar very useful tool. Whether designing stunts with vehicles that typically don't have speedometers, or calling out speeds to drivers of modified vehicles during stunt sequences, the Pocket Radar has proven to be very useful. It's size makes it perfect to take on location and always have with me on the set.
Pros: Convenient, Low Cost, Accurate...

Rick Thomas

The Pocket Radar has been the single most important tool in helping my son set, manage, and acheive pitching goals. The tool has enabled me, as a parent, to gauge progress with accuaracy that is parallel to or exceeds all more expensive radar devices on the market. The Pocket Radar staff has been reponsive and professional. Working with courteous people is refreshing and greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this product to parents and coaches that want a superior tool in developing their player's pitching, throwing, running, and batting skills.
Pros: Size, ease of use, accuacy
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
