Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Advanced Skills Batting Tee. The AST (patented) is unlike any other swing trainer available. Designed to help experienced players perfect their bat skills and begining players to learn proper mechanics, a forward arm and outside swing barrier simultaneously eliminate both "dipping" and "casting". And, the height adjustable (24"-40"), movable arm positions the ball anywhere across the strike zone to realistically represent inside and outside pitch locations. Use the AST to build a compact swing, keep the "hands inside the ball" and develop a "quick" bat. Use it to increase bat speed and learn to "hit the ball where it's pitched". Includes a two-year warranty!
  • The forward arm eliminates "dipping" or dropping the hands and trailing shoulder to lift the ball with a "looping" type swing. If you "dip" with the AST, you hit the back of the arm. It forces you to take the bat straight down to the ball, leveling the swing at the point of contact.
  • The outside barrier eliminates "casting". It keeps you form swinging "long" and helps you "keep the hands inside the ball". If the bat or arms are extended prematurely the bat head will slap the flexible upright barrier post. For years coaches have set a tee adjacent to a fence or screen to force hitters to compact their swing. The outside barrier does the same thing except it is a lot more effective. It rotates around the tee to accommodate LH or RH hitters and it moves along with the forward arm to help you keep the hands "tight" when you are working on inside and outside pitch locations. With the outside barrier you are forced to rotate the hips and torso and extend the hands only at the point of contact. It produces a "quick" bat and more power too.

Great tee April 1, 2016
Reviewer: willhi895 from Plano, TX  
I've had four different batting tees for my son and this has been the best.  We've used this one for at least 4 years.  It is a good compromise between portability and sturdiness.  It has a good range of height and easily adjustable.  The brushes have held up flawlessly for us through--300 balls a week.  Finally, I left it in a hot SUV, with the brushes crammed in weird position and so now it is hard to keep a ball on them.  $10 every few years is fine with me and it probably have lasted forever had I been a little more careful. Before each game and practice, my son usually hits a bucket of balls the right way, using the guides.  We then turn it around and hit a bucket off just the brush part without any guide.  If you do this it is a good idea to tape a pad or washcloth over the face, just below the brushes, to avoid any damage to a bat that strikes the hard red part under the brushes.  If it had a rubber pad on the end your not supposed to hit I would give it 10 stars, if I could.

Great concept February 13, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pearland  
The actual tee is very durable, but the brush top does not hold up. Might be great as an individual tee, but does not hold up to team use. With good hs hitters the brush top might last two practices. Needs a more durable solution.

Great Company June 13, 2015
Reviewer: Jerry Held from Prospect, OH United States  
I was trying to get a tee for my daughter to use when I found the advanced skills tee. I called to see the availability, there was one available. The tee was reserved for me while I was completing the online order form. It was shipped right away.  It was here in time for a weekend team practice at our house.

Great customer service!!
