    Default Batting tee

    What is the most durable batting tee out there. I am going through at least one a year. Any suggestions?

    This is the one we have. It's holding up really well so far, much better than our original, cheap plastic one.

    I love the UtiliTee by Bownet, but the ball-holders aren't very durable (I have tried their 3 different types). Otherwise, the structure of the tee is very good.

    That said, my current on-field tee is a Tanner.

    I am liking the tanner tee. Not sure I like the brush type ball holder. That atec one looks like it should hold up. So is the standard tanner tee the one I need? Or I see there is a tanner heavy. Is it just the base that is a different weight?

    Tanner. they are the best IMO. can even be unscrewed and put in a coach or bat bag to take to the field. I'm especially liking their new one that DD's hitting coach uses. has an offset base so you can set it on the edge of a home plate without making it crooked, Tanner "Heavy" Batting Tee - Tanner Baseball Products and Hitting Aids

    I have been through 2 versions of the UtiliTee brush ball holder. They aren't very durable. The second one had a change in materials that was a little bit better, but it still failed (10U-12U TB team use). UtiliTee also has a wrap-style top option. That failed, too. There is a "mesh" top that Bownet sent me, as well. It hasn't gotten the amount of uses as the others, but it seems like it might be the best option.

    I bought the "short" version of the Tanner tee to allow for low-ball work. Since the stem and base unscrew from each other easily, and use standard 1" pipe thread, I picked up a 10" long galvanized pipe nipple and coupling which I can add when needed for working on higher pitches.
